Tip of the Day # 174: Removing Musty Smell from Basement

Does your basement have a permanent musty smell? Take an onion and cut in half--place both halves on a plate and sit on the floor of your basement--they will absorb any odor that may be lingering.


  1. Yes... but then you have the lingering onion odor...

  2. Thought the same thing as the first commenter. Would you elaborate a little bit? How long should it stay down there? And long does this trick work?

    1. The onion odor subsides very quickly actually! I have removed the onion about 3-4 days later maximum when I noticed the basement smell had left :)
