Cigarette smoke out of synthetics?

Posted by jamesfjamesf (My Page) on

Hello..I bought a used motorcycle jacket made from Cordura. Ran it through 2 washings with Woolite and it still reeks. The manufacturer says to use "soap flakes or non-biologic liquid soap". Is there anything out there that fits this requirement? I can get soap flakes as a special order but if there's something off the shelf (I'm in Massachusetts).

Try just hanging it outside for a while. Cig smell isn't -that- permanent. If fresh air kills dust mites and bed bugs, surely it can cut cigarette. Did you try febreeze?

Try ODOBAN. It comes in a gallon container and is a godsend for managing odorous laundry!

Dreft or Ivory Snow are available in most grocery stores, Walmart, Target, etc.

Have you tried soaking in some water and baking soda? Or water and vinegar? Either one should remove the odor.
