How to remove the smell of perspiration from clothing
The yellowish stains have gone but you can still smell the odor even though your clothes just came out of the machine? There are easy and effective ways to remove the odor of perspiration from clothing.
In this kind of situation, you need to make up your mind and act. If you do not have any professional detergent on hand, opt for white vinegar. Soak the clothing in a solution made of equal parts of vinegar and water; rub well under the arms, in the area of armpits. As well as the odor, white vinegar can get rid of sweat stains.
Avoid using the dryer: heat accentuates odors. Dry at room temperature and use a traditional clothes line. If your machine is equipped with cold air mode, why not make use of it?.
Baking soda is another option which is just as effective. You just mix some baking soda with water to make a paste. Once done, apply it on the stained parts and leave for about an hour to take effect. Then put the clothes through the washing machine. For this solution to be even more effective, add the equivalent of a tablespoon of baking soda to the wash load.
How can you scent your clothes?
Once you have gotten rid of the odors, you can scent your clothes using essential oils. Just put 15 to 20 drops of essential oil onto a washcloth and place it in the drum with your laundry. You can also use scented softeners.
