Purchased some books and magazines at a garage sale this weekend. Great books and I really want to use them, but there is one major problem.
The previous owner apparently used cologne liberally and the scent has impregnated the books. I am VERY sensitive to colognes - reading the books makes my sinuses swell, gives me a headache and I get a funny taste in my mouth.
If the books had been displayed for sale in a closed space rather than an open garage, I would have noticed the scent and not bought them.
Right now I have the books in a plastic bag with baking soda to try to remove the smell. Any other suggestions?
