ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

Musty odor

I have 2 beautiful Oak dressers that I found in our family lakeside camp. The camp was closed up for many years, and the dressers have a terrible musty odor in the drawers and interior. The exterior is in beautiful shape and I would love to use these dressers as baby furniture for our new arrival in April. I have read some of the message boards recommending techniques such as a 50/50 bleach/water solution, baking soda, charcol plates and sun baking (which would be difficult right now as it's winter here.) I am skeptical that these techniques will not completely solve the problem as I hope to store baby clothes in these dressers. Is there a "no-fail" technique to fully eliminate the odors and still make it safe for our baby's clothes?
