Hi,
I just found an old cabinet that sits on the floor. It has two flaps that lift up on each side that would allow me to store some kind of crafty project in process in it. But it smells like the last owner stored cigars in it. Any ideas on how to clear the smell out? It's mahogany and has a little piece of wood missing on a leg but is just darling. Would want to use it, though.
Thanks in advance,
lots2do
(May be a few days before I check back in, off to the Maine Quilt Show tomorrow, yippee)

I put a Bounce dryer sheet in my case that came with my FW. Did the trick.
