Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and I'm going to show you how to remove musty mildew smells. Now, if you have a smell like this it's probably in a bathroom. First, you want to get rid of the mildew. You may be left with the smell, so what you want to do in that case is get a bowl. You can use, you know, this is a glass bowl. This is probably one you're gonna’ want to keep in the kitchen. Get a disposable like Tupperware bowl, or one of those Glad or Ziploc bowls that you can throw away, and pour vinegar in it and tuck it somewhere inconspicuous; maybe behind the toilet or in a corner somewhere where nobody's really, it's not going to draw attention to itself. This vinegar will eventually evaporate, but in the process it will get rid and absorb any odor that is around. It's great for if you have litter boxes in your bathroom, any kind of smell; fuel, mildew, mold, vinegar will get rid of the smell, and I for about twenty four hours there's going to be a slight slight odor of vinegar in the area, but after that it will not smell like anything. Vinegar is the best, best, best, best for things like this. I'm Rachel Yatuzis, and that is how you get rid of musty mildew smells.
