    Try putting them in a bag with a new open box of baking soda for a month, tied shut.

    A small amount of bleach goes a long way to remove mildew smell. Dilute with lots of water and rinse well. A tablespoon of bleach in a laundry load will kill mildew and won't be enough to damage clothes. Just be careful to dilute it before adding.

    Personally, I would toss 'em. Find some new cushions on sale.
