How do you get perfume out of cloth?

I found an awesome "bed in a bag" at an estate sale.  It came with 3 panel curtains 1 valance, 3 shams, comforter and ruffle all for 5 bucks, it looks and feels new but smells like old lady perfume:(

I have washed it 5-6 times and used baking soda.  I am afraid I will have to get rid of it :(

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

I would soak it in vinegar

I'm in the vinegar camp.  Maybe it has soaked up some perfume oil, so you will need to dissolve the oil to get rid of the smell.

I'd try vinegar. Perfume is oil-based, so the acid from vinegar might cut it.
