How to Make a Cedar Closet Aromatic Again

    • 1). Empty the closet of clothing, hangars, shoes and other items. Turn on the closet light so you can see what you're doing, and put on a dust mask to avoid breathing cedar sawdust.

    • 2). Starting at the top of the closet and working down, sand the cedar lining with 320-grit, fine sandpaper. Don't be afraid to put on some pressure. The sandpaper will remove the top, oxidized layer of cedar, exposing fresh, fragrant wood underneath.

    • 3). Wipe off the dust with a damp cloth, working from the top down. Dust any shelves where particles may have fallen. Sweep the dust from the floor with a broom and dustpan and discard.

    • 4). Take sniff when the surface is dry. If the scent of cedar is not strong enough, pour a small amount of cedar oil onto another clean cloth and wipe it over the surface, rubbing it in as you go. Restock the closet with all the items you've removed.
