‘I bought a lovely old dresser but it smells musty. What can I do to get rid of the smell?’

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR HOME -

THAT SMELL IS PROB­A­BLY a com­bi­na­tion of a lit­tle damp and trapped dust, and is easy to sort out. Give it a thor­ough clean with a damp cloth and good old Sun­light Dish­wash­ing Liq­uid (R28,99, Pick n Pay). Wipe off soap with a damp cloth, then dry well. Sprin­kle bi­carb through­out the draw­ers and leave it for two days. Vac­uum away the bi­carb and line the draw­ers with scented drawer lin­ers – it should smell lovely and fresh!
