Smell of formaldehyde

I recently bought a beautiful doona cover. It reeks of formaldehyde. Apparently the manufacturers use this to stop fabrics creasing. I have washed it about 6 times using bicarb, vinegar, Borax, ammonia and normal soap products – nothing has helped in the slightest. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am about to throw it in the bin!

Air, air and more air. Just put it outside for a week or two and the smell will eventually dissipate. Having said that, none of the things you tried will work anyway. If anything will wash it out, it’s a premium brand like Biozet Attack in warm water (40 degrees)
