How to get rid of second hand odor on clothes: two reliable ways
Secondhand clothes have long ceased to be considered something shameful or secondhand. On the contrary - more and more fashion experts prefer used stock items, because "on the secondhand" you can find quality branded models for pennies.
However, a significant disadvantage is the odor. OBOZREVATEL looked into how to get rid of the specific smell of second hand with the help of cheap and very effective lyfhak.
Things from second hand should necessarily wash. Do it at the maximum allowable temperature indicated on the label. In the washing machine you need to pour twice as much powder as usual. Then turn on an additional rinse cycle.
Drying used clothes is advised exclusively on the street - so the specific odor will be eradicated naturally. After washing, secondhand clothes should be ironed.
But, unfortunately, ordinary washing does not always get rid of the odor. Therefore, experts recommend a "radical" option. Pour 1 liter of cool water into a container and add 10 ml of ammonia to it. The soaking process will be long. Cotton clothes should be kept in the solution for at least an hour, and other fabrics, including synthetics - 6 hours.
Dry the clothes in the open air. Lifehack is suitable for all things - white, black and colored.
If ammonia alcohol doesn't help, try running a wash cycle and add a few drops of essential oil to the powder.
