Here are our top three to get you started.
1. Dare to air
Airing is a really useful alternative to laundering clothes that just need freshening up.
And it's very simple – just hang clothes outside on a washing line or on a hanger in a steamy bathroom.
2. Freezy does it
The low temperature in a freezer kills off the bacteria that cause odours. This is really useful for garments such as jeans that can lose their fit when washed.
Again, it's a simple fix – just put the garment in a large freezer bag and place in the freezer overnight.
3. DIY deodoriser
If you fancy being a bit more creative, try your hand at making your own deodoriser.
You'll need: large freezer bags; cheap vodka and a spray bottle
- Using a spray bottle, apply a light misting of vodka to your garment. The alcohol deodorises fabrics. Don’t worry – it won’t leave your clothes smelling of vodka
- You can add a few drops of essential oil or lemon rind if you want some fragrance
- You'll need to let the garment dry before wearing it.
