"Dear Apartment Therapy,
It being Pet Month, I thought I'd send you a question I've long had but have yet to find an effective answer for. I own a couple of large mutts who liked to park their behinds onto a favorite couch. They don't smell bad themselves, but over time the couch has taken a musty-funky odor (drool?). The couch has been replaced and moved to another room where the dogs don't come into, and now I'm trying to get rid of the years of dog smell. I've used pet odor sprays and Febreeze, but I can tell these just cover up the smell. I tested a patch with and also tried , but that didn't work well and just made a mess. Any other recommendations?"
