Odiferous Drycleaning  

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This truly constitutes a "small question", but I'm curious to know if it is a general phenomenon that dry-cleaners return garments to their owners carrying a distinct scent of stale sweat, or whether this is just my poor luck / the poor-quality selection I have living in Austin, TX. It has certainly been my personal experience over years of having dry-cleaning handled locally. I'll acknowledge that in some cases this scent-of-one-thousand-men has been (less than adequately) masked by a thin veil of potpourri, but i have yet to encounter an instance where the garment I receive back seems to have been actually cleaned, at least going by nose.

Perhaps someone can shine some light through this haze of a Greek bath, which has me perplexed as to the purpose of this service.

I have no advice here other than to go to another drycleaner!  And no, I haven't had this experience.

You are smelling the cleaning fluid. Perk is the most offensive smelling. Find a green cleaner who uses another type of cleaning fluid

Appreciate the input. The cleaners I've used, and used most recently, is a stated "green cleaner", although this claim alone carries little weight. A search revealed this, which attributes the sour notes I've identified to dirty solvent, and this would seem a likely explanation unless PERC's chemical constitution is that of a high school football team.

I realize the answer is therefore to find another cleaner, as suggested above. But I've come upon this issue with enough cleaners that I fear it is epidemic in this town.
