Removing Odors from Polypro

Karen Altares wrote to me and asked if there was a way to remove the stench of the river and other various moldy smells from polypro.  I recommend washing the offending items by your usual procedures (I use a front loader and liquid tide, sometimes I use melaluca melabrite but you will have to find someone who sells this product to get it.)  Then hang the items out in the sun to dry.  All day is preferable.  The UV seems able to kill most offensive bacterias.  I don't have a solution for polypro that stinks in the winter - this will only work in the summer....
