All of our clothes have been stored for a year. Last night I washed them in All detergent and baking soda. The musty, oily odor is still there. What else can I use?

Try washing them again, but add 1-2 cups of white vinegar along with the detergent.

I find All detergent to have a musty smell of its own. Try a non-scented detergent.

Just put them in the Washer; No soap and add 2-3 cups of the clear vinegar in the rinse cycle. Don't worry, the clothes will have a 5 minute scent of vinegar, but they will be void of any odors and feel better than new within the half-hour.

Vinegar will retard the action of any soaps, excellent to add to your rinse every time.
