What's the best way to get bad smell out of jeans? I bought them used from someone on this forum a while ago, and I'm not sure what he did to them, but they smell terrible. I've tried washing them and hang drying, I've tried Febreze, I've tried putting them in the freezer for 2 days, and I've tried hanging them outside for 2 days. Will the dryer do anything? I think my only option left is to wash them again and put them in the dryer on high heat.
