If you can put it outside in the shade an remove all the drawers and dispose of any drawer liners. Leave it out as long as you can wash the outside with mils soap and water rinse and wipe dry with old towels or paper towel. If the smell still persists put unscented drier sheets in the drawers. In an extreme case you mite want to seal the insides of the cases and drawers with shellac. I have not tried it but have been told by several people that the spray on odor remover for material will also work, but I would be careful if I tried this not to get it on any finished wood.
