Body Odor from a WWI uniform

As for the smell, you might take t o a good dry cleaner for evalution. Body odor comes mostly from bacterial action. I'm thinking the bacteria from old are pretty much gone. Having ruined numerous items in the past, I would advise getting good advice from a professional cleaner befor doing anyting on my own.
We need to get a professional dry cleaner on the board!

To give you an idea of the power of ozone, the previous owner of the house I live in was one of those who pulled her oxygen mask aside so she could have another cigarette. She died and the house sat unsold for over a year because no one wanted a house that absolutely REEKED of cigarette smoke. (I'm a reformed smoker and it grossed me out.) I had an idea, so I decided to take a chance.
Anyhow, after washing the walls and having the carpet cleaned the house still stunk horrendously. Knowing how ozone worked on my uniforms, I contacted a fire restoration company to see if they could help. They sealed up the house and put an ozone generator inside for three days. Three and a half years later, there still is not the slightest hint of cigarette smoke.
Works like a charm and no chemicals touch your uniform. Great stuff!
