How Can I "Green" My Home Again After An Extermination?

Q: Help! I bought a beautiful antique french walnut armoire on Craigslist, but it's infested with powderpost beetles! I've worked so hard to have my apartment be "green" (e.g. good indoor air quality, natural materials and cleaners, etc.), so how can I clean up the armoire after it's been doused in toxic chemicals? Is there any way to make it "green" again before I put my clothes and blankets in it?
