Deodorize Clothing with Vodka

A great way to deodorize clothes is to place some vodka in a spray bottle and mist them with it. Hang them to dry and you'll notice all the smells are gone. The vodka kills bacteria and odor, but won't leave an alcohol scent behind. This is great for clothes that you just brought out from storage. You can use any vodka, even the cheapest brands.

I hope you used that Grey Goose bottle for illustrative purposes because it's too expensive to waste. :) I'd get a really cheap bottle of Monarch for cleaning.

You can also use isopropyl alcoohol in the same way. It's a ton cheaper. I buy it right in a spray bottle at Walgreens for $2-3. It's great for delicate or dry clean only things that have developed a musty smell.

We actually don't drink and was gifted this so it's turned into our disinfectant! Haha!

I've got several bottles of grappa that I don't drink. Think that would work?

I believe so, yes :) I have a friend in Italy who uses grappa for disinfecting wounds.

That's a good use for it. I can only use so much of the stuff for limoncello and arancello and I'm not ready to make another batch yet.

I think any clear alcohol would work.

The problem is that there is no patented recipe of Vodka. You can make alcool at 40° from anything, potatoes, wheat, or others cereals and call it Vodka. No country or company will come round to sue you for using the name Vodka. That is why I am not so sure that no Vodka could have a special smell which could turn into a bad smell. Why should you buy that expensive french Vodka ? Vodka is not part of the french tradition/culture, but when Russia became "fashionable" a few years ago, the french companies discovered that there was no patented recipe nor patented region of production of Vodka and they started to sell their own Vodka. There are no reason to pay so much money for Vodka because the making of Vodka is not sophisticated at all. It does take time and ancestral culture to produce wine, and time has a price but for Vodka no ! Each european country has its own traditionnal production of 40° alcool from cheap products like fruits, potatoes, herbs, dry parts of the grapewine ... etc, which gives the Grappa, Raki, Schnaps, Aquavit, Marc, Gnole .... Of course you have to make sure that the products used are safe but that's all. If you are looking for the purest Vodka with no addings chose the swedish Vodka. Sweeden is actually the country that "taught" Vodka to the russians. Its most famous Vodka, the Absolute is sold much cheaper than the supposed "french" Vodka. (by the way ... I'm french !)
