Stick it in the machine on a delicate wash setting with some woolite, I’m yet to ruin anything that way

As Sydney said but also add a qtr/ half cup of apple cider vinegar, works wonders. You could also try activated charcoal in the pockets, etc if you don't want to wash.

Nope, got this from yahoo

Been after it for a few years as well! To replace an undercover mountain parka with the zip sleeves which was my fave coat for a while.

This is much better for me as you can layer loads under it, oversized style got a bit of George costanza vibes on my short and stocky (not bald) frame.

If you bleach a stain and just let the bleach dry on the item and don’t wash it it won’t bleach anything else will it? Like once it does it’s work on the stain and drys it won’t cause anymore bleaching to anything it touches or if it gets wet? Hope that makes sense.

On some new medication at the moment and one of the side effects is sweating…anyone found any product to revive a pair of shoes/sneakers? Want to neutralise the smell rather than cover it up obvs.

Simple Talc is pretty good.
