    Damp / Smoke smell in furniture

    Damp / Smoke smell in furniture 17th May 17 at 10:47 AM
    Greetings all,

    I am inheriting a chest of drawers that has immense sentimental value. Because of who it belonged to I very much want to use this furniture. However, the flat it will be coming out of has a strong smell of what I think is a combination of cigarette smoke and damp.

    Does anyone have experience of cleaning wood with a deeply impregnated smell. Did it work? How did you do it?

    Thanks.

    Looks like the simplest solution (pun intended) Zoflora worked.

    (and I was surprised at the successful product - something I'd never have thought of using)

    We saved a wooden ottaman when my mum died, she was a very heavy smoker and we found putting a" Neutradol gel odour destroyer" from the £ shop in with the lid shut for a few weeks absorbed the smell , must admit never thought of Zoflora expect it would have been quicker.
