Try Odor-B-Gone for BOOKS. It removes musty odors for booksellers & collectors.

If your books have odors you don’t have to lower your prices—or worse yet—not sell it at all because of bad smells. I just spray the pages with a light mist of this stuff and the odors disappear permanently.

Odor-B-Gone for BOOKS will neutralize odors without leaving a residue; and it’s odorless so there’s no scent left behind. You can buy it in a 32 ounce size which comes with a separate mister & applicator bottle.

I treat all my books with odors this way and I’ve never had a problem. You should try some and see how it works on your own smelly books. You can find it on Amazon at this link: Odor-B-Gone.
