How to Clean Smells From Wooden Furniture


Wooden furniture sometimes absorbs odor that must be removed to keep your furniture in usable condition. No one wants to have a meal or relax on a smelly piece of furniture, so deodorize the piece with a homemade cleaning solution that quickly removes the unpleasant smells without harming the wood itself.

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 3 cups hot water
  • Spray bottle
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • Cleaning rags
  • Mix 1/2 cup baking soda and 3 cups hot water in a spray bottle. Shake the bottle to dissolve the baking soda.

  • Spray the mixture over the wood and wipe off with a damp cleaning rag.

  • Pour 1/2 cup white vinegar into the bottle as well if any odor remains, as this is a stronger disinfectant that is still safe for wood.

  • Spray onto the surface, wipe off with a damp cloth and let air dry.

  • Smell to see if any odor remains, and repeat as needed.
