I just hate the smell of the dry cleaning solution that seems to stay with my suits. That chemical smell just doesn't connote a clean garment in my mind. An elderly neighbor told me that it used to be common practice to hang garments outside on a cold, snowy day. Apparently the snow must have provided some cleaning benefit and certainly the cold air would help remove odors. Obviously this would not remove stains, but has anyone heard of this old time method? Anyone heard of any other alternatives?
