Help! My fabric smells like mothballs

Susie Page writes:

I have stored fabric for decades in Rubbermaid totes with mothballs – as my Mother did.

Now, I want to use some of the fabric. After repeated washings (the last one using 50/50 vinegar and water) I still cannot get the smell of mothballs out of my fabric.

I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you, in advance, for your help.
