My sister just had a house fire a few days ago and a lady from the Red Cross was there and told her to wash the clothes with her regular laundry soap and 1 cup of Scope and line dry outside if possible. If line drying is not possible, wash them a second time with another cup of Scope, then dry and it should take the smell out. We haven't been able to try it yet so I can't say as to whether it works well or not.

A lady at my church had a house fire and said that Tide with Febreze helped save a lot of her clothing that would otherwise have been ruined because of the smoke smell. Maybe you could try that.
