Sometimes, clothes that just sit dormant in a suitcase, or bike panniers, can lead to this type of reaction. dust mites, allergens, molds, etc. Just like anything else, i would open them up on occasion, hang em on the line like clothing to air out. I definitely agree regarding not just leaving them in the bright sun. As long as it is open with some breeze and airflow, they will dry after rinse or wash. But i would also do this on occasion even if not washing them. And put a garbage bag around delicate and wearable items. You might want to try using Dreft laundry detergent or stuff some dreft dryer sheets in it also.
