I am looking for some help/advice please. My children are older and play outside constantly. I have an issue/frustration because it seems that no matter what I do, their clothes just do not come out clean enough for my liking - there always seems to be some lingering "odor". Any tips on products that would help to remove these odors? I have tried OxyClean and a few other products to no avail...”

  • Vinegar is a good odor neutralizer too. use it like you would bleach, but it is color safe (don't try this AND baking soda on the same load).

  • I've heard that Pine-Sol is good for eliminating odors in fabrics. Add it to the wash...

  • You could try adding baking soda to the laundry. I started doing this when potty training my daughter and haven't stopped.

  • nope, other than maybe have them change thier clothes or have one particular jacket for outside play. febreeze? I dont have that issue here, do you live near some sort of industry that puts a strange odor in the air?
