sulfer smell in clothes

I was just getting a few of my hunting clothes out for archery season, and they where all packed a way in one of those airtight bags.. i pulled them out after all summer to wash them and they had a nasty sulfer smell to them, i left a black powder pellet in my orange vest,, Do any of you know how to get the smell out i have tried every thing but cant get the smell out.. i washed them i n the un scented soap that didnt work then i washed them in ajax that seamed to work but then it smelled like ajax so rewashed them in the un scented soap and i thaught i was golden!! then after smelling them this mourning they just have that faint smell!! anybody have any idea to get rid of it or am i screwed??

    Hang them on a line outside and wait

    Coat them in scent killer...Dead down wind claims to work on GAS!

    Or... throw them back in a bin with some dirt scent wafers.

    Wash them again with a whole regular size box of baking soda and warm water.  Let them line dry outside and leave them air out for several days.

    Other than the UV killers, I think baking soda is still just as good as any of the brand name hunters detergents detergent for washing clothes.

    Sounds like a good excuse to buy some new hunting clothes to me.

    Use a whole bottle of skunk essence and you won't even notice the sulfur smell.  You'll have a good cover scent too--heck, the deer won't even notice the human odor!
