wipe down THE SOFA

If you de­tect a bad scent on your sofa or soft fur­nish­ings, make a so­lu­tion to get rid of the prob­lem. Mix some warm soapy water with white wine vine­gar and scrub the af­fected area. Be sure not to over-wet the sur­face, though.

Tackle MUSTY cup­board SMELLS

Fur­ni­ture of­ten ac­quires a stale smell if it’s not been used for a while. Check for wood­worm as it’ll need to be chem­i­cally cleaned. Leave the item out­side to air if you can, then pop a bowl of bi­car­bon­ate of soda in­side to eliminate niffs.

RE­FRESH CAR­PETS

A few hours be­fore you run the vac­uum round, sprin­kle bi­carb onto the car­pet where it smells; it will soak up the odours. Vac­uum as nor­mal and you should be free from the whiff!
