My landlord was able to rent out my apt and I can move out on the 1st .. 3 weeks away. While a bit more time to prepare would be nice .. I'll be saving at least $200/mo and I need to money to effect repairs etc..

My MH has the rear U shaped bench with a drop down table creating a nice bed. However the cushions are old and have a musty smell. I took the covers off and can wash them .. good shape but the zippers are all busted .. but what can I do to 'clean'/'deodorize' the foam itself? The smell is pretty faint but could be unhealthy? or at least unpleasant sleeping on it.


You've likely long dealt with this, but a secret to removing musty odors from things is to take them to the laundromat (A big one, not an RV park one) and put them in the wash with warm water, detergent and a half cup of Pinesol (Use this stuff to disinfect my sleeping bags when I wash them).
