How can I get mothball smell out of clothes

I washed them twice. I read that leaving them outside in the sun during the day helps. Any advice?

  • Wash them with tide w/febreeze. That stuff works wonders! Then hang them outside to dry. :-)

  • Or try Dryel, it is supposed to be a substitute for dry cleaning - has a really nice smell.
