    Default Fishy smell on clothes

    Hi all, my son's tops smell of fish oil. As he missed his mouth, I cannot get rid of the smell on his clothes. Any ideas please? I've tried soaking in vinegar, bi carb soda, fabric softer. I'm lost.
    Thank you

    I would spray with napisan and hang on the line (without washing) for a couple of days. Then wash and hang out on the line again.

    Eucalyptus rubbed into the area and some into the wash with your usual clothes detergent and then hang out in the sun for a few days.

    A squirt of dishwashing liquid as pre wash then wash normally. It gets motor oil and canola deep frying oil out so i assume it will work on fish oil.

    I used to work in a fish processing place they used vanilla essence to get rid of fishy smells - it worked wonders. I've never used it on clothes though, and not sure if it would stain?

    I use dishwashing liquid too but I rub it on the stain to loosen the oil and soak it all up with baby powder.
