Eliminating a Musty Smell from a Room?

I live in a mobile home. This back room is starting to smell so musty. There are no leaks so it isn't the water heater. I can't afford a dehumidifier but need to get rid of this smell.


Any help would be appreciated.

We have a similar problem with a room that is little used. If the weather is nice, I open the window a bit, and leave it that way for a few days. I also put out a cardboard shoe box with charcoal bits in it, and leave it as well, until we have reason to use the room. If it is carpeted, sprinkle a good bit of baking soda all over, leave for 24 hours, then vac it up. As long as you know it is not a moisture problem, these should help a lot.
Best of luck to you!

Place a small glass or small container filled with apple cidar vinegar on a table or shelf out of the way so that you don't have to worry about it spilling. After a day or two the smell will be gone. You can leave it in the room to keep it from smelling again. Once it empty, you can fill it back up again.
