Vintage clothes

I bought a costume that was stored in a dry cleaning bag for several years. I read somewhere that spirits water on the fabric and layering zeolite rocks for a few days would pull out the stale smell. Is this true? Is so, which of your products would work best?
I’ve used Febreze on it which helped a little, but the strong scent is still there.
Thanks, Melissa Gracey
The Febreze has a odor of it’s on, so all it did was cover or mask the odor.
You always have to use products that have no odor. Eliminate odor, don’t try to cover it up, when the
cover up odor is gone, you are left with your original odor.

You can spray Natures Air on the item, first.
Then use the All Purpose Granule or Odor Crushing Packs.
The All Purpose Granule can also be used in the washing machine and the garbage disposal.

Thank you for your question, and I am here to help.

Pet Powder – Eliminates Odor – Animals in Heat

Pet Powder will eliminate body odor, fleas, and ticks. Works to eliminate all types of bacterial heat and hormonal problems. Pet Powder instantly attracts and traps odor molecules given off by bitches in heat. Hormones given off by animals are highly polarized and can be quickly adsorbed by the negative charge of natural zeolite. Pet Powder is a natural zeolite mineral that works on all types of odors as well, without causing any irritations or sensitivity to the animal. Breeders and show participants have had great success in controlling animals in heat with an application of Pet Powder to the gland area.
The powder is also soothing and relieves the itching of  hot spots on animals. It is 100% natural zeolite mineral, safe to use on any animal. Simple to use, just apply directly to odor source as needed. Apply directly to hot spots as needed.
Eliminates skunk odor completely when used with N. O. C. ™ (Natures Odor Control™) on pets or humans.
Apply liberally to pet and brush into coat for body odor, flea and tick control at least twice a week.
The Carpet Granule is used in the carpet for problems with fleas and ticks.

Dog in heat: This powder is absolutely fabulous. It’s safe to sprinkle on dogs after expressing anal glands and a must for a bitch in season – just sprinkle down her rear and repeat every time she comes back in from exercising. It won’t prevent breeding but will virtually eliminate stress in your males.

Use on cotton balls in bitch’s britches, and not even the other dogs in the house or in the vehicle will know she is in season. Of course, you cannot allow them together.


Working with carpet and odors.

Hi: I have an indoor/outdoor carpet that became saturated with water. It is made from a type of plastic. It has dried and there is a definite mildew odor in the room. Can this product be applied to the carpet and take care of the odor successfully? Germ Doc.
Thanks, Chris

Chris, yes, the Germ Doc.  can take care of the problem, by spraying it on the indoor/outdoor carpet. If you have a large area, it would be easier to use a pump up garden sprayer to apply the product. It does have to be a brand new sprayer.You did not tell me if this was glued down or not? If it is, I would also use some All Purpose Granule on it after it is dried. Always use fans in an area when you are working with carpet, to have plenty air circulation. I have added two attachments:

Note: it is important to keep pets from area until all the granules have been vacuumed up because the odor will not be totally gone until that time and the pet may re-soil the area. You can always cover the area by using furniture or an upside down basket..
One Pet Odor Elimination Kit will take care of 10 X 10 foot area to
10 X 15 foot area.
