My wife has inherited a very fine dolls house which we believe was
originally made in the mid- to late-1960's.
Unfortunately, when open there is a strong, acrid smell inside the
dolls house. In an attempt to get rid of the smell, we have tried
washing it out, placing an onion in water, dismantling the house and
repainting it. So far, our efforts have been in vain.
We have been unable to pin down the exact source of the smell. It
seems to emanate from everywhere.
The house is constructed of plywood and given its age, I was wondering
if it could be the resin holding the plies together?
Any other ideas as to where the smell might be coming from, or how we
might be able to get rid of it?
