Is there any way to get odour out of a dry-clean-only garment without dry cleaning it?

    Febreeze or spritzing rubbing alcohol or soda and water??? I’ve only used Febreeze but have heard the other options also work….

    Oh, and turn it wrong side out and leave it hanging up where it can air out. If you have a nice day and can open a window, in front of the window is a good spot.

    If you have a “tumble only” or “air dry” setting on your dryer (assuming you have a dryer at your disposal in Cambridge) you can also tumble the garment (meaning, without any heat) with a Bounce sheet or other fabric softener sheet made for the dryer. It kind of helps move the odour out of the garment onto the sheet and leaves a nice fresh fragrance at the same time. For stronger odours, multiple dryer sheets are recommended. However, this laundry tip is really for odors. I don’t know if odours are really worth worrying about. They seem much more genteel.
