It has NEVER been stored in a basement, or attic once those smells seep into the cardboard box there is just no way to get them out. You would have to open up the box and wash the doll and shampoo her hair and wash the clothes it has on and not use the original boxes again and then that would not be considered a MINT doll now would it. Thank you for reading that and your interest in my doll.Take care and God Bless You & Your Family! Also if the corners on the box are white then the doll is not in MINT condition. Box should be clean with no scratches or worn spots, no white corners, no scratching on the front window on the box and the doll should not have an odor. I have smelled them before (make sure the box does not have any odors) when purchasing them or they are not of collectable condition.
