Deodorize Your Clothes With Vodka!

Do your clothes smell musty from being in storage all winter? Real Simple suggests deodorizing them with vodka. Yes, vodka. From Real Simple:

Solution: Spritz garments with a small amount of vodka; hang them to dry in a well-ventilated area (spot-test first). Straight vodka kills bacteria, but it doesn’t leave a scent.

Great tip, because if we know you there was likely going to be some vodka on those clothes anyway. —MEGHANN MARCO
