    Question Best Way To Remove Dry Cleaning Smell From Wool?

    I recently had a vintage wool blanket and a wool hunting coat dry cleaned and now it has a dry cleaning smell. I hung them out in the garage to air out but they still have the smell. Ideas? Thanks!

    Let the dog sleep on them for a week.

    All it is, is Napha same as moth-balls. just air it out for two days. or put it in a clean trash bag with fresh (Un-used) coffee grounds.

    I wonder if baking soda would work? I think bears might like the coffee smell a little too much...
