Lac, is there any reason you don't just soak it over night and drop it in the washing machine with good smelling detergent on the long cycle?

What time is it when a really foul-smelling gorilla sleeps in your bed and masturbates all over your sheets?

Time to ask juventuz.com for some laundry help.

what do u do with urs?
The ones that really smell bad are my soccer clothes, but what i do is that i wash them as soon as i finish playing so that it's still wet and the smell isn't stuck in the fabric. i hand was the bad stains. that's about it.

That's a tricky one though! It sometimes messes up clothing.

Josh, you can do what the drycleaner does yourself.

Take the shirt (or whatever it is) and lay it on a table/ironing board or something similar. Then take a towel and soak it in clean, warm water then wring it out but not too much, you need it to be wet. Place the towel flat on the t-shirt (one layer, don't fold) and start ironing over it. The steam from the towel will clean the shirt.

It's not a miracle method, won't clean heavy stains etc. but it will probably remove most bad smells.

You can tell I've been living on my own for two years already can't you? :D

Launder clothing using soap and water??? BRILLIANT!

What else you working on?

Well, do you remember how we used to dry our clothes by hanging them on moose antlers? Well, I have invented a machine that will actually spin the clothes dry.

Dry clothes? BRILLIANT!
BRILLIANT!!

I have a question that might be relevant.. why do they call it DRY cleaning..? don't the clothes come wet..?
Well you don't get the clothes back wet :p

The solution used to wash the clothes is a liquid, but the actual cleaning process is called drycleaning because there's no water involved.

Because they use steam. Steam, as you probably know, is a gas, not a liquid (water in this case) and hence it's called dry cleaning.
