I had a simaliar experiance with a very good BSA tent. I hand washed the
tent in a big tub using a mild soap like dawn and add lemon juice. I hand
washed the tent and than let it soak for 30 min or longer. I took it out
and ran the hose on it to rinse it out than hang it out to dry. It worked
only thing I can smell is the lemon.
May the scouting spirit live long and prosper
