How do I get rid of the smell of 'old shed' from a buggy?

Have borrowed DS1's old buggy back from PIL to take DS2 on a train.
They have kept it in the shed I think so it is filthy and musty.
Have washed the seat cover on a hot wash and tried febreeze but it still stinks, any ideas please?

PS If anyone knows how to get the hood off a maclaren Triumph, please see my other thread in Pushchairs.

Bumping because it's stinking the house out!

I've got this with a play tent. It's grim. It is better, so has improved, but still smelly. Won't bother buying fabreeze then.

I read sodium bicarb is supposed to get rid o f smells. Maybe try dusting it thickly with bicard then hoovering off next day? Unfortunately can't do this with tent (too vertical & slippery)

I used biological detergent and then left it outside for ages at every sunny opportunity - is now smelling much better, but the musty smell hasn't completely gone - am going to buy new buggysnuggles grin

Trying the bicarb atm, and if the sun ever comes back it will go outside.
Great idea with the buggysnuggles FessaEst, I don't want a musty baby!
