    I have a question for you guys.

    I wore a sleeveless dress beneath a suit jacket and now (er-hem) where I sweat on the jacket smells a little (er-hem) funny. Do I have to take this to the dry cleaner or is there a less destructive way to go about it?

    The jacket is Ann Taylor, made of polyester. So this thing doesn't air out the way my wool garments do.

    Thanks in advance.

    Bonsoir.

    spray some breeze -> air it out -> steam the wrinkled area (get steamer. Its fantastic) -> air out.

    Your jacket should look and smell as good as new.

    If the jacket is poly can it be hand washed? Is there a fused interfacing?

    I don't detect fusing in the jacket.

    First, check the care instructions on the garment.

    Second, you can try steaming it.

    Third, if you cannot clean it satisfactorily, bring it to the dry cleaner. Try to find the best in your area although the most frequent problem is not the dry cleaner but the manufacturer when it comes to women's garments.
