Try bakensoda (Walmart sells a big box for $1.97 use it all- in the
laundry section) in the wash but before washing, soak in a bucket of downy
and bakensoda with water for about three days...I didn't iron some of this
stuff, but the smell is gone for now



Anyone figured out how to get the smell out of Katrina clothes? I've tried
Lysol in the wash, bleach, vinegar, OxiClean, Tide with color safe bleach,
Tide with Febreeze, Mr. Clean, ... did I forget anything? The smell seems
to be gone until the clothes get hot due to ironing or putting them in the
dryer. I know that I should probably pitch them especially since some
clothes recovered looked like they had been eaten ... and it is safe to go
back. Anyway, any suggestions? Also, I can't get the mud stains out of a
quilt my, at the time 90 year old, grandmother made for my daughter. Any
suggestions for that?
