Zap Clothing Smells Stored clothing: At-home dry-cleaning kits like Dryel ($11 at supermarkets) remove stale odors. Sweat/body odor: Wash your clothes to kill body odor in fabrics. Shoes: Avoid wearing the same pair of shoes two days in a row, and stuff them with newspaper, which absorbs moisture and, therefore, smells. Avoid sprays, which can leave a white residue.
