Got my raincoat out (hi Autumn) and it smells stale and leaves a stale smell on my clothes after I take it off.
Even if I cold/gentle wash raincoats they lose their waterproofing, and this coat is very waterproof even in heavy showers which is hard to find!
How can I de-pong it! I dont want ti spray it I dont like air freshners etc they give me headaches.
Thinking of giving it a gentle soak in the bath but scared to add detergent incase it washes off some of the waterproofing.
What do you all do when raincoats need a freshen up?
