And I say that in the original sense of the word, as in, a foul odor. You all know what I mean. It is the smell of an article of clothing that has been sweated in, then left to fester for many years. The whiff is unmistakable to a vintage aficionado, and extremely hard to get rid of. While dresses or shirts can be washed in water, I am very hesitant to do so with suit jacket for obvious reason. I have had some luck using soap and water just on the underarm, and have washed a suit jacket or two, but it is so hard to get them pressed nicely again. I tried some enzimatic stuff made for pet odors. No luck. I tried vinegar today, and seems to be working, but I won't know if it will work once dry. And will dry cleaning get the vinegar smell out, or will it disipate itself. Anyone else figure out a way to take care of the smell other than washing in soap and water?
