Question by helPIneeDanswerS: I went dumpster diving and found a good couch… but it smells like crap… is it possible to get rid of smell?
I found a couch on the side of the road that had been rained on… as a result it smells pretty bad… like mildew and rot. It’s a great couch though… is there any way to get rid of this smell?

Most likely not , but they do make fungicidal/germicidal products for upholstery . the one I have used is called micro-ban . most importantly you must dry it out thoroughly before bringing it into your house. remove the covers from the cushions and wash them if possible and possibly look into having it professionally cleaned, usually around 100 dollars for a reg sized sofa.
