warm wash is fine. i wash all my PB clothes on a cold/warm setting(i guess it does cold first and warm second).
if that doesn't work, wash them in the sink by hand with detergent and really, really get scrub the fuck out of them. Also make sure you dry them as soon as they are done washing them. if you leave them in the washer, they'll start to smell like shit.

arm and hammer baking soda in your wash might help.

Febreeze that sh*t


In my experience Febreze just masks odors, it doesn't really make them go away. The chemical composition of Febreze is designed to absorb odors, but I've never seen it (or more specifically smelled that it) completely eliminate odors. P&G's marketing is the reason people "think" febreze is good at removing odors because they aligned it with household cleaning and pleasant smells. If you want something that indescrimately cleans, white vinegar is just that. For example, cooking pot has stains on the bottom from food being scalded to it. Pour some white vinegar in the pot and heat it up and let it boil some. Pour out almost all of the liquid and a take a green scratch pad to it and that pot will be as good as new. Works on cleaning your floors and other various items found through the house or garage. Same for clothing, it'll remove odor and act similarly to a fabric softener but without leaving the wax that makes your clothes soft yet still provides the same effect.
