How to say “permeate/ percolate” in a real conversation? When I cook meats, my clothes smell like meats. In this case how can I say it in a casual conversation? Can I say my clothes permeated meats?

You would normally only use “permeate/ percolate” in a technical conversation. You can use 'percolate' to refer to a ( IMHO horrible) method of making coffee with a percolator. You could say "The smell of cooking meat permeated my clothes", but it would probably sound a little pretentious. You could use it in a joking tone to sound fancy.
