Poor Man's Drycleaning

Stinky clothes. We've all been there: You want to wear that shirt but it's got that not-so-fresh smell and you don't have time to get it dry  cleaned. All you have to do is put some vodka – yep, even the cheap stuff will do -- and a little bit of water in a spray bottle and spray the article of clothing with the mixture. Let it dry and voila! The odor is gone. It's the poor man's drycleaning! This is a trick used on Broadway, so they don't have to dryclean the clothes after every show. Joan Rivers swears by it. So does Madonna. And we have it from a good source  that  there's a spray bottle of vodka in the dressing room of the Lion King on Broadway right now. They spray their costumes down with it after every show. For the rest of us, we can wear that shirt, and if we're feeling a little not-so-fresh midday, a little spray under here, a little spray under there and we're good to go.

I cannot see how this will not make you go in smelling like a boozer... I've heard vinegar and water... or like I prefer frebreeze! I prefer it to actually be cleaned, but this one makes me wonder....

 After Vodka dries, it does not smell anymore.. Similar to Vinegar.

Vodka is a solvent and a cleaning agent. It DOES clean things.

I never tried it but plan to use up that bottle of vodka we were given for a xmas gift this way! Just came across the information and thought to share in case it does work well.
