I have inherited, over time, contents from 3 loved ones sewing rooms. Some of the things had been in storage too long and have 'the smell'. I use a vinegar soak but it takes many washings and sometimes the items are a loss and have to be tossed. The smell is that of our great, great, (?great?) grandparents house and furniture after it has been closed for years with no fresh air.
Anyone have tips and tricks?
