    Hello folks

    My mess kit is starting to get rather 'pongy', obviously worn a lot by the fella who had it before me. This isn't just a musty smell, it's a BO smell and it really stinks!

    I need to get it cleaned, last year I tried having it dry cleaned but this didn't remedy the situation.

    What does everyone else use to remove the musty flavour?

    Thanks,

    Sharpie.

    Burn it and get a new one. Should smell lovely then.

  3. Just had mine put in after last mes dinner and even for a fat oiley VM its come out smelling of roses. Paid an extra couple of quid for the permy creases and you dont need to iron it, straight from bag, shower and get p*ssed.

    T_I, where did you have it put in? I presume you mean dry cleaners, did you ask for a special deep clean or something?

    Dingerr, I don't have the money to buy a new one.
     
  5. Put in in through Johnsons (ASDA) and they did it on a normal dry clean but because Garrison town they have loads in and do a good jo. Costs around £15 with creases.

    I might pop down the local Johnsons here then (not Garrison, but it'll do) and see what they have to say.

    Cheers for the help.
