How To Remove Perfume Smells

When you think of removing odor, you likely think of a foul smell. What happens when you experience a lingering scent from your perfume or cologne, even after it goes through the wash? Many perfumes are loaded with synthetic chemicals and resins, so it's important to pretreat areas that are exposed to your daily spritz, such as the collar and cuffs. Read on to see how to remove both oil-based and alcohol-based perfumes and colognes from your garments.


STEP 1: PRETREAT

Apply Stain Solution to areas of the garment that are saturated with the scent. Work in Stain Solution with the Wash & Stain Bar for additional power. The Wash & Stain Bar will help tackle oil-based fragrances.


STEP 2: WORK

For added cleaning power, put the affected area under the faucet and let the pressure of the hot water help work the stain.

STEP 3: SOAK

Draw a bath of warm water in the Wash Tub Basin and add 1/4 cup Scented Vinegar – known for its powerful cleansing properties that fight stains, buildup, and odors. Soak cotton and durable synthetics for one hour. For woolens and silk, use cool water and soak for up to 30 minutes.


STEP 4: WASH

Wash as normal with appropriate detergent, such as Signature Detergent. If scent remains, repeat as necessary.
