How do you get the new wood smell out of dresser drawers?

Try putting dryer sheets in the drawers. Also, fragranced soap bars, or drawer liners work effectively as well.

To eliminate the odor rather than just cover it up, use something like AFM Safecoat. It is a water-based sealant. It will not stain the wood, just cover it with an invisible coating. I would use this on the inside of the drawers and see if that helps. You may need to use two (thin) coats. This will keep the gasses that are causing the odor from escaping from the wood.

By new wood smell, do you mean the chemical off-gassing from the glues in plywood/particle-board furniture? If so, the lighter-weight, but more expensive, real wood dresser might be a better bet. Off-gassing can take a year or more to diminish beyond noticeable smells. This is why the people displaced by Hurricane Katrina who are living in brand new mobile homes now have lung problems.

I have had good luck removing odors with an ozone generator. They are awesome!!

Do cruise ships have hair dressers or salons on board?

All major cruise ships have a salon and spa on board. You are encouraged to secure your hair & nail appointments the day you get on board. Find out what nights are the formal nights so you can ensure your up-do doesn't get surrendered to the pool the next day. Also, check the cancellation policy for each appointment to make certain you're not billed for a no show. Lastly, never be afraid to bargain with the spa manager. During times the vessel is in port, they are struggling to keep the spa busy. Ask for a percentage off the appointment ... Often they'll take you up on it. Oh, remember, most cruise lines add a 15% service charge to all services, which is NOT gratuity. You should plan to tip above and beyond this amount if the service exceeded you expectations. Happy Sailing!

How do you remove a dresser drawer from a broyhill dresser?

There are several drawer guide styles, but the most common one - especially on furniture made more than a few years ago - uses a single track under the center of the drawer. To remove the drawer, pull the drawer out until it stops. Now there are two possibilities. 1. Look under the bottom edge to see if you can see (or feel) either a white 'half moon' stop or a white plastic lever. If you find these, they can be depressed so the drawer can come the rest of the way out. To re-install the drawer, engage the guide on the bottom of the drawer with the guide in the dresser and push the drawer back into the case. You will probably feel some resistance as the drawer passes over the detent. 2. If you don't see any white detent part, grasp the drawer with a hand on each side of the side panels of the drawer close to the front of the case and give it a sharp pull. It should pass over a friction detent and come out of the case. Re-install as above. If your drawer has side guides rather than the center guide, please contact the Broyhill Consumer Center.

How do you remove a dresser drawer with automatic stops?

My dresser has a little drawer stop on the bottom of the metal track that runs along the underside of the midline of each drawer. On mine, I pull the drawer out as far as it will come and then flick a little metal piece to the right, that releases the stop and I can pull the drawer out the rest of the way. I start with the top drawer and bend over to see what I'm doing. (And to remember whether it goes to the right or the left.) After I've got the first one done, it's simple to do the other ones by feeling under the drawer.

What are these tiny white bugs on your shirts in your dresser drawer?

I think they are larvae of some insect, not necessarily moths. You need to empty the dresser completely, washing all of the clothing and possibly relocate any miscellaneous items. Wipe out the drawers using a mild soap solution and allow to dry.
