<p>I picked up a skirt like that for dd's halloween costume. I just kept throwing it back into the wash till it finally came out smelling  clean .You could try a soak in detergent and/or oxiclean.</p>

<p>Here's what I do when my front loader is stinky....</p>
<p> </p>
<p>-leave the door open (to dry out the inside between uses)</p>
<p>-place a dish of baking soda in the washer</p>
<p>-wash a load with oxyclean or Bac-Out</p>
<p> </p>
<p>As far as the sweater goes, maybe stick it in a bag and 'toss' with baking soda.  I've done this with stinky yarn and it worked great. </p>
