    Pam....Sprinkle dusting powder in the drawer then fold tissue paper and lay of top. It really makes a difference. My mom did it and I still do.

    Try putting a bowl of coffee grounds or baking soda in the drawers and leaving them closed for a few days!

    Eliminate the source of moisture and dampness.

    Place Damp Rid products in the drawer.

    Clean everything with either white vinegar or Odo-Ban.

    Newspaper, activated charcoal, and baking soda are also good at eliminating odor. However, Odo-Ban is my go to because I love the clean scent and it also disinfects.
