    I vacuum well, wipe down with vinegar then sprinkler coffee (you can dry the grounds from your morning joe and use those) inside. Cover with paper and within two days no more smell. For furniture that's been exposed to mold, I then seal the drawers with polyurethane.

    Try putting a bag or some clumps of charcoal in their. Supposedly it will absorb odors.

    Try giving it a good wipe down with a damp cloth, rinsed in dish wash soap water.... Fresh of course. Dry. Add some bicarbonate of soda powder. A few leaves /sprigs of lavender, a pretty paper over it! Hope this helps

    If you can put them in the sun, it helps a lot. Bring in at night.
    Charcoal works, I would add it after it has been out in the sun.

    Instant Coffee Grains .... DRY !
    JUST SPRINKLE INTO DRAWER should be gone ..leave the coffee in DRAWER, etc. Overnight.
