Q: I relined our closet with aromatic cedar last year using a cedar kit from a home center. The material is about 1/4" thick. It went up well and looks good. Unfortunately, we no longer smell the cedar aroma. Is there a way to renew the odor?
A: Yep, sand it lightly. Sanding the cedar, even with 220-grit sandpaper, will remove the oxidation layer and restore the aroma. Plan on doing this once or twice a year if you want to keep the smell going strong.
