Soak them in your sink with approx. 1 cup of baking soda and leave for at least an hour. If this doesn't work, then it's best to chuck them out. Plastic is bad for picking up odors. Marcy

How do you remove damp musty smells from plastic?

I had Tupperware that had been stored in a garage which smelled very musty. I thought I would just have to toss it. I tried Clorox, etc. to no avail then just left it on deck for several days to eventually dispose of it. When I went to dispose the large pieces, lo and behold, it no longer smelled. Since then I have been told that the ozone in the air and sunshine did the trick. Technique was easy, green and economical.

How do you get rid of a musty smell in a basement?

I know that my grandmother has been using mothballs in her basement for years, they have a scent of their own that might aggitate some people and you shouldn't put them down if you have small kids or animals. You can also try removing any old fabric that may be down there and I'd also probably have a mold inspection done. Basements tend to hold a lot of moisture and that could be what it is if it's that bad and it can have bad effects on you and you're families health. The best thing I have seen for this type of smell is an ozone generator. You can rent them.

Does anyone know how to remove a musty smell from rolls of vinyl wallcovering-wallpaper?

It is hard to give a definitive answer without more information. Where have the rolls been stored? Did you just receive them from a placed order? Vinyl wallcovering has a peculiar smell when you first open the roll but this will dissipate in a few days. If the roll has been stored in an uninsulated, damp area, then I suggest you wipe the surface with a damp sponge and check for any evidence of mildew or mold. If you have enough space to unroll, weight the corners and let air, the odor should disappear.
