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.

  1. Mix 1/2 cup baking soda and 3 cups hot water in a spray bottle. Shake the bottle to dissolve the baking soda.

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

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