Question: How do I remove hog or farm animal odors from clothes?
We all owe a big salute to our farmers who provide our tables with food. For those who manage hog, cattle or poultry farms, there is a distinct animal confinement odor on work clothing. So, here's some help to keep everything smelling fresh and clean.
Answer:

To each load of clothing, add 1/2 cup household ammonia to the heavy-duty detergent. Allow the clothing to soak for about 30 minutes and then wash as usual in warm or hot water. DO NOT ADD BLEACH. Never add any type of bleach to the load because ammonia and bleach combine to produce toxic fumes.
