Use Cat Litter To Clear Out Musty Smells

Ever pull clothes or containers from storage only to realise that no amount of washings will get that weird, musty smell out of them? DIY blog The Art of Doing Stuff offers up the simple solution of using a little unscented cat litter to pull out the scent.

We've talked before about how cat litter is great for eliminating garbage bin odour and as a deodoriser for shoes, so it should come as no surprise it also works on pretty much anything you pull out of your own storage or buy from a thrift store. For something like luggage, you can pour the unscented cat litter in and leave it for a week to get rid of the smell. For clothes, shove them in a plastic bag, dump some cat litter in, and seal it up. If you're pulling out your spring clothes from boxes right now, this might come in especially handy.
