removing febreze smell on sofa

February 12, 2010

hello - a few weeks ago I smelled what I thought was a faint moldy smell coming from the back corner of a microfiber sofa, not far from where I had placed a humidifier the day before. Thinking that the damper air may have triggered the smell, I removed the humidifier, and picked up a can of Febreze Air Effects (meadows and rain fragrance). I sprayed a few puffs directly on the sofa, and also in the general vicinity. Unfortunately, I didn't realize the Febreze smell would be so overpowering - it's very distracting, and headache inducing (!). I wish I hadn't used Febreze (I also wish I hadn't put the humidifier close by, but that's another regret :-$ ). I've taken a roll of dry paper towels to the sofa and surrounding carpet, trying to rub it off the material, but it doesn't seem to help much at all. Any suggestions? thanks...
