Also, along the same lines, if your refrigerator needs an air freshener, put a few charcoal briquets in a bowl in the back. Works like a charm!

I had an old school year book and baby albums that had been in a box, they got a bit of a musty smell. I layered sheets of newspaper between the pages here and there throughout the books. Put these inside a small white kitchen garbage bag, then waded up a few sheets of newspaper and placed inside the bag as well. Sealed the bag shut tightly and leave for a week or two. It will remove the smell.
Wow this is the most amazing thing ever! Just the other day - I tried to do the same thing. I happened to sniff at a jar used to have. God knows what was in it. I wanted to to use for rice or something. Couldn't because of the evil smell! Will definitely try your tip & see if it works :D
Charcoal briquets also work for musty dank odors in basements. Place as many briquets as you like in a bowl or container of your choice and place in the corners of the room. Your basement will be odor-free.
