Okay gang, I need your help!  At the moment I’m in the process of quilting this little baby that Rhonda had pieced for Siblings Together:

When she sent it over, she warned me that she’d put it together while she was still smoking, although she has since stopped (WTG Rhonda) so it might be a bit smoke smelling.  Now when I took it out of the envelope I gave it a bit of a sniff, but it seemed to be pretty much okay, and it’s been sitting kind of airing now for about 3 months.

Fast forward to this morning when I went to press it before I basted it – whoa, seriously stinky smoke smell when I applied iron to fabric :o(

So my question to you guys is this – will a normal wash get rid of this smell?  Does it need something more industrial strength?  If so what?
