Hi, I'm looking for suggestions on how to get the musty old smell out of a CL bureau I just purchased from a used furniture dealer. The bureau was made with a lot of plywood veneer.

Put 1 oz of bleach in a sparay bottle and spray the entire piece with the solution and let set out in sun for a day, this should work.
