Meghan Graham, owner of Into the Wardrobe, offered me this tip for refreshing dry clean only vintage and second-hand clothing:
- Wet a washcloth with water. (Not dripping wet.)
- Place it into the clothes dryer with the offending article(s) of clothing.
- Run the machine on air setting (no heat) for a few minutes.
- Flaunt your fresh style!
What about moth balls? Moth balls are toxic (they're a pesticide) so she says it's best to not even bother with clothes that smell of them. If you can't live without a particular item that's been stored with moth balls (like maybe your great-granny's sweater), Care2 suggests putting the clothing in the sun, repeatedly until the smell disappears.
