Re: how to deodorize a woolrich outfit?
Things You'll Need
Detergent (bleach and alkaline-free) or liquid dish soap

project at HomeDepot.com
Fill a sink or bathtub with enough lukewarm water to cover the entire piece of wool clothing.
Dissolve a wool-safe detergent into the water. Use a bleach-free detergent without alkaline pH. One or two drops of liquid dish soap works well. If you use a commercial fabric detergent, measure out the manufacturer's recommended amount.
Submerge the wool clothing item in the water and let it soak for three to five minutes.
Push the wool clothing down into the water and bring it back up, letting the soap work its way through the fabric. Do not wring or rub the clothes, as these actions damage wool fabric.
Rinse the wool clothes with cool tap water until all of the soap is removed and the water runs clear. Repeat the soaking, washing and rinsing process if the clothing is heavily soiled.
Drain the sink or bathtub. Squeeze the clothing gently to remove as much of the water is possible, and let it drain in the sink for five minutes.
Spread out a thick towel and lay the clothing item flat on the towel. Starting from the end, roll the towel and clothing up, squeezing gently as you roll, to dry it. Unroll the towel and lay the clothing on a flat surface to dry completely.
