1/4 cup of vingar in with the wash normally removes bad smells. And vodka makes a wonderful fabreeze.

1 mom liked this

washing soda, and I do a super hot, super long wash with an extra rinse.  My dryer gets super hot too, it has an "antibacterial" setting

and... if a thrift store smells really bad, I'm not shopping there.  There's no reason to buy stuff like that no matter how cheap.
