Spare Your Clothes From Calgary's Smoke-Pocalypse
If you've gone outside Calgary within the last few days, you might be thinking the apocalypse is coming. The sky is darker, everything looks yellowish-brown, and you can't see anything further than a block away.
Unfortunately, the cause is nearly 600 wildfires blazing in British Columbia which has sent a horrible cloud of smoke and ash over the city.
Not only has the air quality reached high risk, but the smell of smoke is exceptionally strong. So strong that it sticks to your clothes. Officials have advised people to stay indoors, but unfortunately that isn't always possible for everyone.
For those that have to work outside, clear skies or not, their clothes might be starting to stink. If you're one of those people, or you've just spent your whole summer next to a campfire, we've got a handy trick on how to remove smoke odour from your clothing!
First things first, you'll need a hanger, a bathtub, and vinegar.
Step 1: Hang your garment on a hanger and then hang it from the curtain rod
Step 2: Fill your tub with hot water. It should be hot enough to produce steam
Step 3: Add approximately 4 cups of vinegar to the tub, close the door and leave for 15 minutes
Voila! The steam and vinegar should have removed the smoke odour. Now once the smoke clears and the blue skies return, you'll be smelling fresher than the daisies.
If you don't have the time or patience to do this trick, hand over your clothes to us, we've got you covered.
Stay safe out there!
