Ladies, I have a storage building that I keep a lot of my craft supplies in. I have loads of yarn that I have stored in a wooden trunk, and plastic boxes. My yarn has developed a musty smell. Is there anything I can do to get it out so I can use it? I know I can always wash whatever I make, but I don't like the smell while I am crocheting. Thank you for any suggestions.
My DD found some at yard sale the same way. She washes it before using it. She said even feels better when working with it.She put it in a netted sock bag and throws it in the washer. Then dryer I think.

I had some like that and I crumbled newspapers up and put in the tote with the yarn. Put the lid back on let set for a couple of weeks. May not take that long, that's just when I checked.
Newspaper work great when trying to get the food smells out of plastic bottle and jars (dill, mustard, mayo, peanut butter, coffee, rancid oil smells, etc.)
Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you always know they're there.
I have had a similar problem at times. When I store it, I add fabric softener sheets in the containers. After I do a project, I hang it outside in the sun and that seems to help also.

Thank you icecream, granny3641, and LlRoe. I will try each one and see which does the best for me. I really need to use up all that yarn!
