Help me, LJ-kenobi! You're my only hope!

I used a stain remover called Lestoil on some of our clothes, and it is amazing stuff. Some stains that were years old are just gone like magic! BUT ... now all the clothes in question smell like they've been doused in turpentine, even though I've washed them twice with detergent and let them air dry. It's nice that the stains are gone, but the clothes were considerably more wearable when they were stained but not so odoriferous! This stuff would give me a migraine if I wore it around all day!

I know some of you reading this are more skilled in the housewifely arts -- or simply in the fine art of chemistry -- and so I was wondering if anyone had any de-stinkifying suggestions.

How can I get this smell out of our clothes?
