    Any tips to freshen up 2nd hand clothes? 27th Oct 11 at 6:18 PM
    Hi all,

    I was desperate for some new clothes, but as I am hoping to lose weight I thought I would be MSE and pick up some things from ebay to tide me over until I can fit into my existing too small clothes. I have bought items from several different sellers, the thing is I find they smell a bit sweaty I have tried rubbing a good squeeze of Stardrops into the armpits before washing, but there is still a rather heavy smell about them. I need to wear these to work but cannot go into the office smelling bad. Being a plus sized lady I am already paranoid about keeping myself clean and fresh. I won`t make this mistake again - I would have been better off just buying a couple of brand news tops rather than the several smelly 2nd hand ones. All the sellers have good feedback, I am sure they must just not notice their own smell iykwim.

    Please can anyone suggest a way to get rid of the smell? If I can`t then I have wasted a fair chunk of dosh.
