Washing uniforms

My husband just bought four new uniforms and I wash them and hang them up to dry. I cant stand they way they smell. He said it has to do with the bug repellant on them. I can smell it when I open the washer and then the bathroom where I hang them up to dry smells while they are drying. YUCK

Dh's doesn't smell...  Or maybe I've just gotten used to it?

Your dh is in the USMC right? I don't think the MC uniform has bug repellant lol. I was joking with my dh about that when we were walking through the store and I saw the Air Force uniform has bug repellant uniforms. All I know for sure is my DH's never has a smell other than dirt or gun cleaning stuff.

Can you wash them in hot water?  Don't know if that would help.

 I do wash them in hot water. His old ones didnt smell which is why I said something to him because there was this chemical smell after I opened the washer. That is when he told me about the bug repellant.

My dh is a Marine and he said that his uniforms do.have bug repplenent on them. But his have been worn and washed so much that it has come off.

 Hopefully the smell will lessen then since it does wash off.
