There’s A Seinfeld Episode About That

I found this very unique rug on and on line auction last fall.  I loved it.  It was a little dusty but I did not notice any odor.
I thought about using it as  wall hanging, but decided on putting it on the floor on my side of the bed. 
 The back is just as interesting as the front.  I had really been happy with it until….  

3 weeks of heat and humidity hit.  What was that smell?  I finally found that it was the rug.  It smelled like a combination of cat urine and cigarette smoke.  (no cat in my house and we don’t smoke). How did it not smell for months until now?  I took it outside to air out but had to bring it in because of rain.  It stayed it the living room for a couple of days until it was sunny again.  So out it went.  But now I noticed the the wood floor that the rug was on smelled like the rug.  I got the Bissell out to clean the floor.  I doused the rug in Fabreze.  I washed the rug with Dawn.  I let it dry in the sun.  I cleaned it with the Bissell.  I used the pressure washer on it.  I used Fabreze rug powder.  I let it dry in the sun again.  I vacuumed the powder off.  It still stunk, but not as bad so at least I can now roll it up and have it in the laundry room until I decide what to do with it.  
It reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where someone with body odor gets in Jerry’s car and he ends up having to abandon it, then a homeless person didn’t even want it. 
I thought about donating the rug, but I don’t really want to pass that smell off to anyone else.  At least I only prided $10 for it.

Great Seinfeld episode. Not so funny in real life.

Boy, do you smell something?
Do I smell something? What am I, hard of smelling? Of course I smell something.
