  • There is liquid Frebreze that you add to your washing machine IN ADDITION to detergent. Works great on urine smells, so I assume it'd be worth it to try on body odor!

  • Does that work with HE washers?

  • Not sure what a HE washer is, sorry.

    I've used it in top-load washers and front-load washers with success. The Frebreze I'm talking about is in a dark blue container, probably 1/2 gallon size. Generally costs about $9.00 at Wal-Mart.

  • Try using arm and hammer deodorizing detergent. It works getting smells out of almost anything.

  • HE is that high efficiency...you have to use the special detergent with the front loaders....

  • Well if the body odor wont come out, how will the vinegar smell come out and wont it be absorbed in the fabric and when he sweats, smell like vinegar (I know to wash after soaking) just a question..?
