Hey /diy/. I'm in a bit of a pinch.

I'm at work right now. I spilled a cup of coffee across a three level glass cabinet/desk. I've managed to clean the most of it up, but there are little nooks and crannies I cannot possibly get to (without completely dismantling the case, which I cannot do, as it is not my property and in a public place).

My problem lies in that although I can't see anymore spilt coffee, I can certainly smell it. Which isn't awful right now, but I imagine will be once it goes rancid.

What exactly can I do about the smell? Anything? Some of the nooks and crannies are so closely sealed only the coffee liquid could seep through them, so I have a feeling even if I could dismantle things, it wouldn't be a full fix.

coffee does not go rancid. unless by coffee you mean milk in which case I don't know, discreetly start a fire?

Oh. I was under the impression it would go bad/rot. It was a Starbucks 'americano' to be more exact - which if I understand right is a couple shots of expresso and some hot water.

If it won't then that's kind of a weight off my shoulders.

yeah if it's just coffee and water and not something with a lot of dairy there will be little smell, and what smell there is will not be particularly unpleasant.
>>
Lemon juice and a small amount of hot sauce wipe where it's needed with a cloth.
>>
Try some tea tree oil and water in a spray bottle. I'm not sure how much water needed to dilute it.
>>
>>924842
for nooks and crannies, hot water into them then use an air duster or hair dyer to blow it out onto a towel or cloth.

I'd dilute to a ridiculous level, my girlfriend uses it for skin care and I can smell that crap when she opens it in the bathroom from a room and a half away

>getting rid of coffee smell
why would you ever want to do such thing, coffee smells fucking good.
People used to burn coffee beans inside the fish tanks of fishing ships, to get rid of the fish smell.
