DIY Fabric Refreshers


If your upholstery has an unpleasant odor, fluff it up and air it out, or have it professionally cleaned (ask for a "chemical-free" treatment).

Before allowing pets on your furniture, cover it with towels. Change and wash the towels frequently.

    Anytime I have a fabric or blanket that cannot be laundered I stick it in the dryer without heat and a dryer sheet or even some fabrics can take maybe a low heat, but it always works for me. When your done with that, if you store it in a closet, you put a box of baking soda in the closet to absorb any wierd odors that may contribute to the smell, or store it in a fabric bag with a dryer sheet.

    Does anyone know how to remove odor from my quilt? It smells like hay. I can't air it out or hand wash it because I live in a small apt. in NYC. I tried to take it to the cleaners and they said dry cleaning wouldn't remove the smell. any tips?
