Most people say the ratio with vinegar is 1:3 (1/3 vinegar 2/3 water).
I add baking soda into the mix as well. I once washed things with 1:2 vinegar to water and rinsed everything incredibly well. :)

I bleached with a 1:8 ratio with bleach (1 part bleach 8 parts water) scrubbed well, swished around etc dumped bleach water out, rinsed thoroughly and then ran through the dishwasher twice (no soap) just to rinse well and steam out anything that might be left in there. I set it outside in the sun and brought it in around 8:00ish. It passed the smell test :)

Wow that really sucks. I love the smell of bleached clothing :D
