I haven't had a problem with perfume smells,

but I once had a sweater with strong mothball

scent. I tried Fabreeze, all of the "do it

yourself" dry cleaning products, and nothing

worked. It still reeked of moth balls. Then,

my Aunt told me the solution. Hang it outside

on the clothesline! The sun and fresh air

completely removed the odor! If it worked for

mothballs, maybe it'll work for perfume.

I was going to recommend hanging outside, also. Another good way is sprinkle baking soda all over the garment. Put it in a plastic bag for a few days then shake out the baking soda. It should absorb the odors. - Susan

Place the article of clothing in a bag and place 1 lb of zeolite in a breathable bag in with it. The zeolite will absorb the odors
