I've read a lot of comments about the BEST way to clean and deodorize furniture. Each comment seems to negate a previously suggested technique. The suggestions so far are, air purifiers, vinegar spray, steam cleaners, Fabreeze, ultra-violet lights and waving a chicken foot over the sofa three days in a row................  only kidding on the last one, but wiling to try anthing that may work.

Well, Vinegar works for animal smells, How bout just plain old sunshine and fresh air.  Charcoal absorbs odors, can put in a nylon stocking and place under cushions or under the frame. If cloth can take your vacuum pick it up and vacuum like you do your carpet, can't get the whole thing but the beater brush helps get the dirt out. Or you could try the chicken foot. : )

Don't be ridiculous. Chicken Feet do not work on furniture. You have to have a buzzard's foot

Gotta love it when the previous owners don't cover up the furniture and leave it in storage for 7 years. 

I've got a chair that needs cleaning, I'll post a picture of it here when I get the chance.  I am planning on taking my not so lean, really mean, carpet cleaning machine to it.

The dust appears to be all over this fabric.  I want to get this chair cleaned up and sold.  I'll post a before picture, we can see what it is worth in its current condition and then I'll get it all cleaned up and post an after picture.. just to see if the value looks like it would be worth increasing.

I cant post the pics now, at work and chair is at home.
