Garlic is a strong odor and difficult to remove and may be due to the "oily" part of garlic.

  • If you have put your clothes in the dryer it may be very difficult to remove the odor but here is something you can try.
  • If you do not have lemon maybe you can find a lemon scented laundry detergent which may work.
  • Add the appropriate amount of citrus-scent concentrated laundry soap for the load you are washing.
  • Sprinkle in half a cup of baking soda and set the washing machine to run for a normal cycle. Use hot water settings for light colors and whites, and cold water for darker clothing.

  • Stop before rinse cycle.
  • Add another 1/2 cup of baking soda into the wash tub and leave the lid open so the clothes sit and soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Complete the cycle.
  • If this does not work you may want to look for an enzyme cleaner - one that is used to remove pet urine odors from the home. These work well on lots of difficult odors. Just follow directions on bottle.

If the item is color fast and none of the suggestions work, I would try placing in the sun and wetting with just water (lemon juice may stain in sun light). Wet several times and leave out overnight and wet again.
Good luck and I hope something works.

Putting your clothes in the wash didn't resolve the smell?
