We bought a second hand nursing chair (it ricks and reclines smile love it). However, the upholstery does smell of dust. My local dry cleaner will not clean it, as the upholstery does not comes off. So I washed it all yesterday in a bath (hell of a job). It is all dry now, but the smell is still there... Has anyone got an idea how to get rid off this dusty smell, or will it go away by itself? I would prefer something more then Feebreze...

sprinkle on soda crystals, leave for a day and then hoover off?
works well with smelly carpets, so why not a chair?

oh thank you! Will soda crystals not stain the upholstery though?

shouldn't stain, but read the label first (if there is any)
