Dancing stinks!

We have a small dance hall space and it starts smelling bad because certain people who come don't wear deodorant, but we can't necessarily tell them to. The dance hall burns incense, but many people are allergic to the incense, like me. Apart from opening the door, which we can't do because people sneak in, what would be a good way to get rid of the smell during the event?

Yuk, that smell is awful! How did you make such a stink?

So there are dozens of posts on AskMeFi raising the question of how to mask or remove a bad smell. But I have the opposite dilemma: I wasnt to create a bad smell. Not something so abhorrent that people wretch, but a clearly noticeable odour that perhaps evokes decay or sickness or death. And before you start calling the police, it's for a Halloween show. Thoughts on how to disperse said smell (using a plug-in mister? Using a fan?) gladly accepted.

How?!: Perfume Smell OUT of Laundry.

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.

Renting in New Zealand - Pets urine on carpet. Smells. Pet hair

I'm currently renting a flat unit in New Zealand which I will be moving out next month. My current rental agreement states that I do not need to have the carpet professionally cleaned before I move out. I have two cats in the house and the question was raised with the property agent before I moved in. They have agreed to let me have the pets in the house and on the rental agreement, it also states that they are okay with it. [more inside]

Why does hypoglycemic sweat stink so bad?

I am a type 1 [insulin-dependent] diabetic, and sometimes at night, when I haven't eaten enough to cover the insulin I took that evening, I 'bottom out': my blood sugar goes down very low and I wake up bathed in sweat and must go searching for orange juice. My question is about this: The nighttime sweat from low blood sugar just... stinks. It is powerfully rank sweat, as though I had not washed in many days. My partner agreed, he has noticed that it is different from any other sweat I sweat. "You NEVER smell like that any other time. It's a low blood sugar thing." Yet only at night! I also become clothes-soakingly sweaty if low blood sugar happens during the day, BUT it seems 'normal', the same as when I exercise. Can anyone tell me why this might be? Why is the night-time hypoglycemic sweat so incredibly smelly? [more inside]

Clean Shirt but Smelly Underarms?

I'm a clean guy by nature, I take showers daily, and use deoderant. The problem is when I do any kind of physical work that's not too strenuous (aka dancing, carrying bags) my armpits sweat a bit, but not a lot, but the smell is strong! The result of this that I'm forced to throw a perfectly clean t-shirt into the laundry bag just because the underarm areas smell. Is there any way to kill this smell, I feel like I'm wasting money on cleaning clean shirts :\ Any and all advice is welcome!

Gee Your Cat Smells Terrific

Most scoopable cat litter has a fragrance added. Normally we hunt for unscented litter, since the scents linger on my cat and he smells like air freshener. We accidentally bought a 40 pound tub of super scented litter. Is there any way to make it less aromatic or remove the smell from the cat?
