This is the most simple and common method to remove odor from almost everything. Do you notice that smells will come off after a period of time? It is because the ventilation makes odors evaporate. So to remove odors quickly, you simply need to speed up the process. The simplest way is to leave your condo outside somewhere ventilated and leave it for the smell to go away. Or you can use a fan to blow it out quicker.

Using baking soda is also a great way to remove unpleasant smell on your cat tree. Because odors mostly come from the humidity inside the condo and baking soda is a great hygroscopic matter. You should spray the powder in every corner of the tree and leave it for one night so the baking soda can absorb all the moisture. After that clean everything up with a hand vacuum.

Eventually, your newly bought mansion will end up in the attic.
