Deodorizing Your Furniture
Your furniture can absorb odors from everyday sources such as from pets, cigarette smoke, body odor, spills, etc. It can be very easy to deodorize your furniture using simple inexpensive methods. If the smells still remain you may have to call a professional to clean your furniture. The simplest way to try eliminating everyday odors is to use an odor neutralizer furniture spray. Before you go to bed spray your furniture to make it damp and let it sit overnight. Another tried and true method is to sprinkle baking soda on your furniture, let it sit overnight and vacuum the next morning with the hose attachment.
For strong pet urine odors you can use a steam cleaner along with a detergent that is made for odor removal on upholstery furniture. Make sure that you give it at least twenty-four hours to dry before sitting on the furniture. You can deodorize wood furniture by using oil soap or scented wood furniture cleaner.
Deodorizing Your Mattress

Spray it with a deodorizing spray and then flip it over and do the other side. If there are stains you want to remove, use a small amount of vinegar and water and then rub this solution on the stain with a rag to remove the odor and stain. Next sprinkle baking soda on the spot and vacuum it when it is dry to the touch. The final step is to use a spray deodorizer.
