Because of our legal fees stacking up we had to take in a roommate to help with our mortgage. For some strange reason, he has a smell. Not like sweat but just a stale smell. Like something you have put in storage too long and just took it out. Kinda like at an old people's home. He has the top floor of our place (which is also the entrance of the house) so the second I walk in, I smell it right away. Yikes. It's not terrible like BO but it isn't a smell I would like in my house. He has his recliner in our living room and that smells just like him too (so I am figuring it is in his furniture too - room, etc...) What to do? There isn't anything I can say. I am already a freak with my hubby about being clean, for instance on our couch, there are "regular bed pillows" with pillowcases (that I can wash) on floor so if you want to nap, etc... I welcome it but please use that pillow so I can wash it. There is also a blanket with duvet there too so you can sweat, drool, whatever, I don't care but I can wash it afterwards. I find our roomie falling asleep on our couch all the time (which is welcomed) and I have hinted to use the "comfy pillows" but he hasn't yet. Is he going to stink up my couch and house? What to do? What to say? I'm afraid I'm stuck.... I know it is probably just something I am going to have to deal with now.
