About This Article
To remove a musty smell from your suitcase, all you’ll need is some soapy water. Start by vacuuming your suitcase to get rid of debris, then wipe it down with the soapy water. Dry your suitcase with a towel and leave it open for a day or 2. You can also use coffee grounds or baking soda to remove bad odors. Simply cover the bottom of your suitcase with the coffee or baking soda and leave it in for a week. Then, dump the grounds or powder in the trash and vacuum the inside of your suitcase. You can also absorb odors with a vinegar and water solution. Just spray a solution made of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water on the inside of your suitcase, then leave it to air dry.
