I have a Nike polo style pullover sport shirt made of “Dri-Fit” polyester/cotton blend material I picked up at a local thrift in seemingly brand new condition. It fits perfectly, but it has been washed 3 times now and still retains a very noticeable odor of whatever atomic powered cologne the previous owner used.
For my experience in the 70’s once polyester garments got stinkified by BO or perfume etc. it was game over. Is that still the case in 2011?
As a side note how the hell does the material hold onto smells like that? Cotton sure can’t do that.
