Scented Clothes, For People Who Forget To Put On Perfume (Or Deodorant)

My problem with wearing perfume may have been solved by scientists! Researchers in Portugal have developed a way to insert microcapsules into fabrics. While scent microcapsules are usually made from formaldehyde, which isn’t exactly safe to have next to your skin, these scientists have developed a new, more environmentally friendly plastic out of limonene (found in the rinds of lemons), and the lemon-y scent even lasted through dry cleaning. Sadly, it seems there’s only the one scent available right now, but it could soon be used to make BO-neutralizing suits, socks, and underwear, and maybe after that they’ll find a way to embed Burberry Brit in dresses — then I’ll be set.
