Question from Judith


I have had the PAX wardrobe and MALM dresser for several years now. In the past year I have noticed that when put clean, dry clothes in the drawers they have a musty smell when I take them out. I read your reply about them earlier in this list and it seems the off gassing should have occurred by now. Is there any other reason you can think of for this odor? I have tried putting charcoal deodorizers and wiping them down with baking soda to no avail.  Thank you

I don’t think this is due to the furniture given that you have had it for some time. A musty smell comes from mold or mildew.  Do you have levels of humidity in your house that could be causing moisture?  Even though the clothes are clean do they have this odor before they go in the drawer?
