Hi All, couldn't think of a better place to ask this question. We recently purchased a pantry cabinet (1950's or so) that we brought home and immediately opened it to begin cleaning and the smell was awful. A chemical, oil type smell. It is completely painted off white inside. Immediately, obsessive compusive here, I started removing shelves and got out the Kilz. Painted two layers of paint and put it back together.
Well, it still stinks! How do you get odors out of a wood cabinet? There is no obvious signs of puddles of anything inside, it just smells like an old oil furnace. We really need to use this cabinet, and the antique dealer has a "no return/exchange" policy. Help!!! Need to use the cabinet!
