    Have you tried just hanging things up outdoors to air for a few days or perhaps even longer? I always do that with new clothes before I wash them and find it works quite well.

    I have sometimes left things on a washing line for over a year, after soaking in vinegar or bicarbonate, sometimes both in sequence. They have often lost their colour, and still smelt. I have sometimes had to give up. But they are not new items but things bought from charity shops.

    Yes, it makes shopping from charity shops nigh on impossible.
