How do I eliminate perspiration odor from clothes?
My dd is home from college and starting a new career.
Since she's been home I've noticed she has a problem with perspiration odor and it is very difficult to remove the odor from her clothes. She's upset and worried now that she'll be in the work force.
You may wonder why I'm doing her laundry.
Lately I've taken on the challenge because of this issue but once I've solved the problem she will take over.
I have been pre-treating with Shout and that helps on some of the items but not all. Many of her things should be dry cleaned but that would never work to get rid of the smell so I hand wash but it doesn't really eliminate the odor.
I read a post that said to use rubbing alcohol but I'm afraid it will damage the fabric. I read about Borateem but is that an additive to put in with my TideHE? That would be a mess. I have a front loader. Another suggestion was hot water. I'm so afraid of shrinkage.
Then there is the problem of wool. Would any of the solutions damage wool?
I'm sure we need to find a new deodorant but that is a matter for another forum.
Can anyone tell me what works for them?
