I bought a pair of Jeggings from American Eagle and they smell waay weird! Kind of like moth balls but a little different. Anyway, I washed them and they STILL smelled, plus, they made all my other clothes that I washed smell too. We re-washed them and it still smells, not as bad, but its still there. I sprayed perfume on them but it didn’t last. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix the smell?
It’s the dye.Source(s): I work there.
i only wear american eagle jeans and i havent had a problem with the smell but they bleed a lot of color. i would say wash them a lot right in a row but try taking them back to american eagle and complain. they’ll be able to smell it.
