Help for a chronically musty room?
Though I keep my bedroom clean, organized and vacuumed it's always got an "old closet" smell. It's not terrible, but it's definitely noticeable upon entering. Any tricks for getting rid of it? The catch: I don't want to cover things up with another scent - I just don't want it to smell at all.

I think part of the problem has to do with airflow. Even if I open every window in the apartment, my room doesn't get much air. It's like a little dead zone. An air filter I inherited helps a bit, but not much.
Can I leave a box of baking soda around? Would a better air filter (this one
looks quite cool) work? Are there products that pets or smokers use that would help?
