A weird problem...

I'm a bit scard to ask this because it seems that lately theres been a lot of sniping on some threads and I don't want to be sniped at, but I'm stuck and need some help.

I bought a Mutt from someone (not on here) and it arrived in the mail today.

When I opened the package it almost knocked me over. It smells terrible!

It has this mold/mildewy type of smell too it.

I soaked it for four hours in oxi-clean and have washed it in Tide HE, Dawn, Bac-out and have stripped it.

It still stinks!

It so cute and is embroidered so I really, really, really don't want to have to bleach it so I'm trying to avoid going that route.

Any other suggestions? And does anyone know why it would stink like that?

I'm at a loss here.

Try putting it out in the sun for a few hours. The sun is magic.

I second the sun, but also, did you really let it soak in the Bac-Out? I'd soak it overnight in your washer w/water & Bac-Out and then let it dry in the sun. If it still smells after that, I think bleach may be your only option.
