Now, my problem is that the clothes smell like Goo Gone, even after being washed three times. Any ideas how to get the smell out?

My suggestion would be to let it air out in full sun until the smell is gone; shouldn't take too long. Just check often for color-fastness and smell. I've used this method many times, and it works pretty good. Good luck.
I don't know if this would work, but you might try mixing up some baking soda and soaking the clothes in it.
Thank you to those who suggested I use Goo Gone to get sticker residue off my daughter's shirts. Now I can't get the smell of Goo Gone out of the shirts. I've washed three times with vinegar, I've let it soak in detergent. I've used extra detergent and the smell still lingers strongly (which smells like gasoline for those of you wondering what the odor is like). Any other ideas? Thank you.
