This question is from Emily: We recently moved into a cute little rental house in the South Bay. Attached to our detached garage is a summer kitchen, which will be great in the summer when I want to bake and not heat up the inside of the house. It's also where our washer, dryer, and deep freeze are, so I'm out there a couple of days a week. My problem is that it smells like a musty basement. I've had the windows open since the day after we moved in and fans going to move the air around, but it's only marginally helped. I don't want to mask the smell, I really want it to go away completely. However, since we're renting there's only so much I can do. Thoughts?

Can anyone help Emily? How would you get rid off the funk?
