My husband works in home construction and when they start staining woodwork his clothes smell terrible! The odor is so strong and it doesn't matter how much I wash them it doesn't budge. I don't know if anything will help since it's oil based stain, but we can't keep buying new clothes just for a dirty construction job. Please help.
Polyurethane odor may not come out of some fabrics ever. I would suggest you buy painters coveralls for your husband to wear when he has this type of job to do and find a place to hang (outside/shed) until he needs them again or buy disposable clothing.
your husband should be wearing something disposable over his clothes while he works-look at medical supply stores
A vinegar rinse is good for removing odors.
