Instead of febreeze between uses try using pet enzyme like natures miracle. I think you can get a gallon jug for like $17 and it goes a long way in a spray bottle

If its gotten that bad from a funky season you probably want submerged in a soapy water bath (large rubber made) followed by rinsing and a sink the stink dip

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

One additional note...

take advice from whomever you want, but whitewater dirtbags from the PacificNorthwest know a little something about moist environs and gear. We never dry out here. It rained a little bit this morning - nice and damp.

but can you see its opposition | comes a-rising up sometimes | that it's dreadful and position | comes blacking in my mind | ....and then I see a darkness

An overnight soak in a saltwater solution works good for removing the stink, but not for stains.

Give it a freshwater rinse afterward. If it's salty, salt will draw moisture out of the air and it will remain damp a LONG time.

Another option that worked when sink the stink didn't is to use the stuff that hunters use to remove the "human" smell from their clothes. Worked brilliantly on some stuff that sat wet in a closed bin all winter long.
