The best thing to do is probably invest in a dehumidifier, since the smell is being caused by the excess moisture and its ability to create mold, pathogens, etc.

If that's not a possibility, then activated charcoal and vinegar will both neutralize the smell

you can purchase activated charcoal here: https://www.ama  2?tag=thrif06-20

and as far as vinegar, just leave an open dish of white vinegar (make sure that it cannot fall over!) for a day or so. This should help dissipate.

There is something called DampRid, which you can put in the basement.
