How do you get mothball odor out of old quilt and pine chest?

Report as

put it in a plastic bag with 4 or 5 dryer sheets, and close the bag for 2 or 3 days, and put dryer sheets in the pine box too

You can actually use an extremely hot iron to clear mothball odor from clothing that is safe to iron and then hang the garment out in the sun for a bit to breathe. Just in case the item can not withstand an iron, you can lay it outside in the sun. For your pine chest you can actually leave the drawers out side in the sunlight for about 8 to 9 hours.
