moths' balls

This is the piece of furniture we got in Japan for 5000 yen or around $50. Neat, except for the strong smell of moth balls that probably kept it in the second hand shop longer than it would otherwise be. My friend Saori said it "smell like a moth's balls." Ha! I guess she is right. We have had it for a year and a half and have tried a few things to get the smell out: baking soda, vinegar, airing it out, now finally I just took the drawers out and laid them in direct sunlight outside for a day, and guess what: the smell went away!
