I recently purchased a rather nice 90/10 wool-cashmere blend sportscoat. As it happens the first time I donned it I was giving a presentation at the company that I work for, I was nervous and started sweating. Upon removing the jacket I realized that some of my BO had been transferred to the jackets armpit area. After airing it for a couple of hours the smell was still there.
I googled for an hour and found that clear vodka in a spray bottle applied to the inner lining of the arms of the jacket was something that people had used with success. I tried this and found it worked quite well.
I'm now worried that I got the fibers too saturated so what I would like to ask is if the vodka will cause any harm to the fibers in the jacket? Most hits on google tell me that the alcohol dissipates but I found this one post about alcohol containing fermented sugar that would eventually crystallize and cause irreparable harm to the fibers coupled with brownish sugar stains.
Thanks in advance.
