I keep a scented soap (not Irish spring though) in with my yarn stored in a rubbermaid container, and I find that the yarn smells pretty strongly when I first get it out. I like the smell though! But it usually wears off within the first day or so of the yarn being out of the container and on the needles or in my knitting bag. You could always just get it out and let it breathe for 24 hours prior to working with it.

You know the best thing you can do with all that extra yarn is to just give it to me.

You know, My DMIL had a bad mouse problem in one of the houses (and the barn, too!) she lived in, and the yarn she kept in Rubbermaid containers was untouched. The yarn kept in cardboard boxes was a different story, however!!
