  • Give it a good wash with Murphy's Oil Soap. Wipe out all the drawers / interior spaces with a 50 / 50 water vinegar solution. Or a light sanding might help too. You can also place charcoal in each drawer or compartment for a week or so.

    I've had good luck spreading a bag of cedar shavings around in the corners and leaving it for a week. Charcoal briquets and baking soda didn't do a thing.

    Heat will always remove unwanted smells from just about anything. Put your items outside in direct sunlight. Generously spray all furniture with room deodorant . Let the sun do its job. Repeat as necessary .
