Is it possible to get cologne smell out of clothing? I kind of "inherited" a half-dozen nice sweaters that reek of perfume, and I'm allergic as well. I've tried mucho baking soda and soaking in the wash machine; haven't tried vinegar yet; past (somewhat related) threads suggest Ozium and Synthrapol, but they're really not for this purpose.

I recently bought a gorgeous new brown suede blazer in Sweden. It fits perfectly and it is my new favourite jacket apart from one thing - it reeks of suede/leather. Not just a subtle odour, but a full on beefy smell that smacks you in the face. Even to the point where other people comment on it. Nothing else I have ever owned has done this, is there anything I can do to rescue it? Even Febreze has been outclassed!
