    Default Cupboards make my cups smell like wood....

    The dishes will get done, and they are clean. They get put in the

    cupboard on the shelf and when you go to use them later, they smell.

    Its obviously not a strong stench... or my wife's smeller is broken as

    she cant tell what i'm complaining about... but I can't drink out of

    them without the horrible smell. Since the cups are dry when she puts

    them in there, I wonder if we store them open side up instead...



    any suggestions?

    Would a charcoal briquette work the same way?

    Good information. I wouldn't have known that. I have often seen suggestions stating to use charcoal to remove odors in closets, etc.
