Can I deodorize musty smelling wooden utensils?

Pwmfan | Apr 1, 2013 06:21 PM

I discovered a box of assorted wooden utensils that had been stored in a damp basement. They have not been used (still have some price stickers on them) and are stamped "France" on the back. If I remember correctly they were purchased at Sur la Table many years ago. I would love to use them but they have a faint musty smell that I'm afraid would leach into the food. Is there anything I can soak them in that would remove the mustiness without imparting its own scent or damage the tools? They are really lovely and have sentimental value to me.
