In Response To: musty bureaus (Casey)

You will find several answers to this frequently asked question on this forum, but I have used 15% bleach in warm water, wipe this over all bare wood surfaces inside and out. Rinse after ten minutes with warm water and towel dry, allow to air over night, position so that all sides air evenly with no high air movement. Clean the finished areas with a lemon oil product and wax with a satin paste wax. Lightly sprinkel cinnamon powder into the bare wood and brush this around with a whisk broom or paint brush. Go to a wood shop and purchase aromatic cedar chips, saw dust or wood shaves from a plane, place these onto a paper towel and tie up into a ball. Hang this behind the drawers to remove any remaining smell.
