airing out our drawers

the furniture came from a house where the people had smoked for probably 50 years... 50 year old furniture + 50 years of smoke = gross smelling furniture. we've tried baking soda, vinegar water, and finally, an odor remover spray that we found at lowes. the spray seems to be working, but we left the drawers outside most of the weekend to air out. our neighbor said that she didn't want to see us airing out our drawers :-)

stay tuned for the post about what we did with the dresser, hope to have it up later today.

Yes, I always find it helps to leave things out in the elements for a few days, so long as its not raining!

Eek. I've never had to deal with this myself, but I guess that's why people on Craigslist always brag about having a smoke-free home...
