Can vodka suppress and eliminate unwanted odors? Joan Rivers claims she never breaks a sweat, thanks to vodka.
“I always spray my costumes with vodka and water. It’s an old Broadway trick — two-thirds water and one-third vodka, spray your armpits and you’ll never smell again,” she told attendees at the Night of a Billion reality stars event in LA.
Rivers also told the crowd she occasionally uses the mixture to wash her clothes. The E! fashion commentator is starring in a Funnyordie.com video short produced with Svedka, where she appears as a wise-cracking head in a jar being stalked by paparazzi.
It seems Joan knows what she is talking about – as usual – since we found on the net a consumer-care type that goes as follows: ‘Spritz garments with a small amount of vodka; hang them to dry in a well-ventilated area (spot-test first). Straight vodka kills bacteria, but it doesn’t leave a scent.’
