How to get musty smell from old books.
I have some old books that have been stored for about 10 years. Now I want to put them in my house, but they smell very musty. How can remove the odor?
To get out the musty smell you can put the books in a plastic bag with some baking soda. The baking soda will absorb the order after a couple of weeks. If you are interested in selling them let me know what they are, I might be interested, but if not this inexpensive trick should do it. I renovate books. Thanks.

I’ve removed old pet odors by diluting white vinegar with water 50/50 in a squirt bottle. Saturate the spot. Put a thick layer of old towels on it, weight it down with a plastic basket full of heavy books or something. Let it sit over night. Remove towels and air dry. Then sprinkle some baking soda on the TOTALLY dry spot, let it sit a while then vacuum.It might take a couple tries, but it really works. I think the key is proper proportions of vinegar to water and really saturating it to the pad.

How can I remove mildew odor from books I had exposed to a damp environment..
They are not damp, soggy or water logged. Just odorous from the mildew. Also, is it dangerous to work in this environment where these mildewed items are found? How could I cautiously work there cleaning up things?
First, part two: Yes it is not healthy to work in a mildewy area. That is not something you want to have in your lungs. A simple mask will help filter what you breathe in. You can find them at most hardware stores. If you can keep the area ventilated (or get a fan to circulate air out of the room) do so.As for removing the mildew smell from books, try this stuff called Approach. I used it in my bathroom on some old wallpaper and on the tiles and it worked great. It’s got no harsh chemicals and it’s like water so it shouldn’t damage the paper either. Spray it, let it absorb and it should kill the mildew and remove the odor. (Just may have to spray every nook and cranny. Mildew can get in anywhere!)Give it a shot it’s great stuff.Good luck!

How do you remove a musty odor from books.
I have some old children’s books that have been stored in an attic. Although there is no visible mold or mildew there is a strong musty odor. What is the best way to get rid of the smell?
De-Stinkify Your BookDespite your best efforts, your book smells musty or mildewed, or just old. There’s an easy solution… You will need two plastic containers–one that will fit inside the other one. Pour some kitty litter in the bottom of the larger container. Place your book into the smaller container (without the lid), then put the small plastic container into the larger container. Place the lid on the larger plastic container. You can leave the book in this book de-stinkifier for a month–to remove the odor (and any moisture) from the book.Tips:You can also use baking soda or charcoal in your book de-stinkifier.=)
