Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

Some of my clothes (particularly some pajamas) have a musty smell that I can't get out. I've tried washing them with vinegar, then rewashing them with detergent. I've also tried adding borax to the detergent when washing. I've also tried both of the above methods using very hot water (205 degrees).

Does anyone have a tried and true method?
