View Full Version : remove odor from used recliner?

I want to thank everyone for their advice.

Incidentally, my 2003 copy of Consumer Reports guide on "How to Clean
Practically Anything" lists using baking soda to clean cushions (couch,
recliner, etc). Leave on it for 24 hours, then vacuum. I tried that... twice.
And the odor is still there.

Today, I emptied a 16.9 oz spray bottle of Febreze ($2 worth) into the used
recliner. We'll have to wait and see if it works. I notice that it smells
like fabric softener sheets.
