Remove Odor From Old Furniture With Nok-Out

Remove Odor From Old Furniture

Found an Old Piece of Furniture You Love?

It can be really fun to browse through antique shops and every once in a while, you get lucky and find something that you just adore.  You may decide that you just can’t live without that thing and so you buy it.  Then when you get it home, you discover that it has some odor that you just can’t live with. Drat! Don’t give up on it though. Nok-Out is an all-purpose cleanser that happens to specialize in removing odors. With Nok-Out, you can remove the odor from old furniture and put that thing back into your living room where you can enjoy it!

Rescue That Fine Furniture Find With Nok-Out!

Nok-Out is a water-based oxidizer that eliminates odors that it comes into direct contact with. Sometimes it can be a bit of a challenge to figure out how to get Nok-Out to come in contact with ALL of an odor source. So put on your thinking cap and figure out how to accomplish this and Nok-Out can help you get rid of odor from old furniture.

Here’s How

Before anything else, remember that Nok-Out is mostly water and you need to not do anything that might result in ordinary water damage. When spraying wood, don’t leave puddles for more than a minute or two. Then wipe most of that puddle away and allow it to air dry before giving it the “nose” test to check results. If you have a severe problem, think that you can remove that odor incrementally, rather than attempting to get rid of it all in one go. Gently Does it!

Remove the contents from all drawers and remove the drawer from the furniture.  Dampen a soft cloth with Nok-Out and wipe down all surfaces.  This is especially important when the odor is from smoke. Tobacco smoke residue can be sticky and clingy and not want to let go of the furniture.  Wiping it down thoroughly may be more of a job than you think, but keep at it with the incremental approach.  Nok-Out is good at removing odor from smoke.

 Spray the interior carefully and wipe it all down.  Spray one more time and walk away, allowing it to air dry naturally.  Remember to not let it stay too wet for too long to prevent water damage.


You may discover that the lampshade is smelly.  Old fabrics are not reliably colorfast, so you will need to test carefully.  Take an old soft white rag and wrap a bit of it around your index fingertip.  Spray that fingertip until it is wet, and then in an  inconspicuous place, rub the wet fingertip on the fabric to see if any color bleeds.  If there is no  color transfer, you are probably safe.  For old fabrics, I think it is smart to take the incremental approach by diluting Nok-Out by 3 or even 4 to one  (water to Nok-Out)  You may even want to wipe it down several times rather than risking direct spray.  Use caution when cleaning old fabrics and you are more likely to be successful at removing odor from old furniture without actually harming that furniture.

 The rule for you is that Nok-Out needs a few minutes to do it’s work, but you can’t leave Nok-Out on so long that water damage results.  Be patient, be  consistent and with a little work, you can remove the odor from old furniture with Nok-Out.

Rotten Potato Smell Gone!

There cannot be anything worse than potatoes that are forgotten and rot. Any pet I have ever had that had an accident cannot compare. Nok-Out eliminated the odor quickly. What a wonderful product!

My Mildew Stain Disappeared!

I brought in the plants for winter and when it was time to move them back outside in the spring, I had a mildew stain on the carpet. I received my Nok-Out Carpet cleaner and sprayed the stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned to scrub the stain it was completely gone!! Woo hoo!! Thank you, Mary Hunt, for introducing me to this wonderful product!

Christmas tree and Raggedy Ann

We have an artificial Christmas tree that’s still gorgeous but old. Putting it up always bothers my asthma and irritation from getting scratched is not pleasant. Last year I sprayed the tree and the “old tree” smell disappeared. I had purchased Sniper on Mary Hunts advice and it really took care of the basement (moldy) smell! Great! My daughters vintage dolls with cloth bodies had spots of mold or mildew, these are dolls my grandchildren play with. Oh my goodness! Sprayed the doll’s bodies and yarn hair, and the next day they all smelled great, moldy spots gone ! These dolls were over 30 years old and now look soooo good! Would recommend Sniper for other uses, too. Doggy rug smells gone! Smelly shoe odors gone. Grateful to Mary Hunts column for letting us know. 😊👍⭐️

Best Odor Control for carpet

Nok-Out and SNiPER are both great products that I use in my carpet cleaning biz to remove odor in carpets. It works great against pet urine odor! It doesn’t cause discoloration and always works. Sniper kills mold and removes the odor in carpets as well. Great products

Sniper Removed Old Water Odors, Mold & Mildew

I have been using Sniper in the Offshore oil industry as both a disinfectant and a deodorizer for years. It has eliminated old water smells of toilets and bathrooms not used in a year where the water sat and molded mildewed and stank. As well as being injected into our old quarters ac vents to prevent mold buildup. Always worked better than anything comparable and well worth the price.

Cats Get Old!

Cats get old. Things happen. Nok-Out was recommended to me by a friend in another state. I Will never go to the pet store again to try any other product. Nok-Out is IT! I told my Veterinarian about it. I love how fast it arrives after ordering. I ordered three times because we are still working on issues, but at least the house doesn’t SMELL! Amazing product. THANK YOU!

Sniper Eliminated Our Mold Problems!

We’ve used SNiPER disinfectant for several years. It works great. It has eliminated our mold problems and, still, we use it to keep our wooden cutting boards safe.

Removed All The Feral Cat Urine

Sniper has been AMAZING. I was able to completely remove all the feral cat urine scent from the carpets, mattresses, clothing, and toys. It worked beautifully and left no smell, no fumes, and didn’t leave any discoloration. Sniper is now my cleaner of choice and I use it everywhere to clean and sanitize as well as freshen the air. I even use it in my daughter’s gym shoes and soccer bag. Thank you so much. Seriously the best product on the market.

I Am Amazed at The Results!

I learned about Nok-Out from Mary Hunt’s Everyday Cheapskate column and had to try it. Shipping was so fast and your customer service is OUTSTANDING! I am amazed at the results! I even filled a tiny spray bottle to keep in my car. I won’t be wasting my money on any other cleaners anymore. You have a lifetime customer here. Thank you so much!

Completely Eliminate a Horrible Smell

Mary Hunt introduced me to Nok-Out years ago and I am still amazed at how it can completely eliminate a horrible smell.

Yesterday I hosed some dust off a plastic laundry basket. I left it outside to dry for a bit and then returned it to the garage.

A few hours later I walked into the garage and the entire place reeked of cat pee! I did not realize that the neighborhood tom cat had come by and sprayed my basket. It was so bad that I was ready to trash it, but I thought I would try to spray it down with Sniper first. I doused it liberally and left it overnight. Ta Da! Absolutely no smell this morning!

Even after all these years, I am still amazed every time your product works on a smell as terrible as cat spray!

Thank you, Ted!

“Nok-Out Saved My New Car!”

Thank you for creating such a great product. I would and will recommend this to everyone I know. My son left raw meat in my car for 4 days and I thought that my new car was ruined, but after talking with you and using the product, I can now get in my car and the only thing that I smell is a clean, disinfected smell! Thank you for saving my new car!
