I have just bought a secondhand sofa and it absolutely stinks of febreeze. I have removed and washed everything I can, but most of the fabric/foam is fixed on. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it? I absolutely hate the smell of febreeze and it always makes me worry about what terrible thing happened to necessitate a febreeze bath (where the previous owners dog died of lung cancer?)
Could you maybe get someone in to steam clean it? That way the fixed fabric would get cleaned & it would feel more hygienic if steam cleaned as original smell that was being masked would be removed as well as the Fabreeze.
If you are having lovely cold but sunny days try putting it outside for a day or 2. Failing that drench it in a dusting of bicarbonate of soda, brush it in a bit, leave for as long as possible and then Hoover it thoroughly.
