    Wash them or hang them outside a day or two One of the most successful methods for ridding the smell is to soak the affected garments in a solution of equal parts water and vinegar. Alternatively, put the items in the washing machine and run a cycle using only vinegar; follow up with another wash cycle using detergent and softener. don't try to refresh in dryer heat can push the smell chemical into fibers
