Let’s Get This Musty Smell Gone!
First things first, you need to clean your piece. Who KNOWS what kind of things have been in that furniture. It is smart to at least clean up the furniture the best you can. Take a rag and some White Lightning and wipe down the inside of your furniture. I also go over it with a wet rag with just clean warm water as well. I want to get the residual cleaner off.
Don’t Miss Anything!
Look how gross that water is!! you want to make sure you clean your piece thoroughly, pull the drawers out clean in there, flip it upside down and clean the bottom and the back. After you are done cleaning with your cleaner and water mixture, you will want to wipe it again with just warm water. Then you want to just let the piece sit and dry. When you are doing the next step with the BOSS you want to make sure you do the same thing. Put BOSS on every inch of your piece the same way you cleaned the entire inside, bottom and back.
Block That Musty Smell!
Dixie Belle’s BOSS comes in white and clear. I used the clear here. BOSS is really good at blocking and controlling that old musty smell and smoke smells. This step I covered every inch of the inside, bottom and back with BOSS. Wood is porous and blocking is the second step in my no fail way to eliminating gross odors.
You want to make sure you paint all the nooks and crannies with the BOSS!!
This will show you how the clear BOSS goes on white so you KNOW where you are applying it, and then dries clear!
Last Step To Smelly Goodness!
Dixie Belle just came out with ANOTHER amazing product. BOSS doesn’t have smelly goodness to it so I used the NEW Big Mama’s Butta in Suzanne’s Garden. I used my Belle Brush to apply the Butta to every inch. You then want to wipe away the excess and buff in the Butta. After this, your furniture should be smelling so fresh and so clean clean!
BYE BYE SMELLS!!
