How Can I Take the Smell Out of My Clothes?

The 1 Magical Ingredient That Deodorises Your Clothes Can Also Get You Drunk

No time to do a load of laundry? There's a life hack for that. The ingredient you need to take the smell out of your clothes is probably sitting on your bar cart. No joke, vodka will do the trick.

Simply pour vodka straight into a spray bottle, no need to dilute it with water, according to Reader's Digest. Spray the liquid onto smelly clothes, and as it evaporates, it will remove any odor as well. Don't worry about buying an expensive bottle, as the quality doesn't matter — it's all about the alcohol content. And make sure it's plain, not flavoured!

Apparently this practice is used all the time on Broadway when performers need to keep their costumes fresh, Reader's Digest explains. So genius! Give this a try when you're short on time.
