Probably the best way is to have it dry cleaned, or, if that's

not an option, have it brushed thoroughly, then let it lay exposed

to the sun for a few hours. The sunlight should kill the mildew. I

would just like to add something for you to try: This worked for a

pair of leather pants, it also works on old books. Wrap the item in

a plastic freezer bag, or just wrap it tightly and freeze it. I

left stuff in for a couple weeks, smell is gone!
