I have a dresser with drawers made out of compressed recycled wood and
it has this musty sour dough smell. The smell gets in my clothes and I
don't like it.
Then I just bought a new pair of Yamaha Speakers from Yamaha (note
they are new). The subwoofer has some wood in it and also has this
My house is clean and dry. I have no pests. This smell has been in my
dresser and speakers when I got them new. WHY?
What causes sour smelling wood? Is it chemicals? Is it mold? fungus?
Should I worry about my lung health? The smell doesn't travel very far
only when I open the drawers or get within 1 foot of the speakers do I
smell the light sourness.
I don't see any damage or wettness. It's just the annoying sour smell
coming from somewhere.
How do I get rid of it? Wood oil? Orange polish? Or Sunlight?
