Baking soda is a wonderful tool!!! I would recommend dumping a box of baking soda inside the Birkin, then closing the entire bag in a plastic bag and letting it sit for a few days. Then, dump out the soda and carefully vacuum the bag (it vacuums up VERY easily). If you have any in corners, use canned air such as one uses to clean computers and it will blow any bits caught right out. Repeat if necessary.

think that I would try to air it out for a few days to see if that works and

then maybe the baking soda... good luck

NICE.. thanks guys!! i just bought baking soda and put it in and locked her up.. i bought 3 boxes incase i need to repeat hahaa.

tumtum, i actually do the same thing.. i try not to sell my bags with the boxes. for this particular bag, i actually threw the dustbag out because it was an older velvet one that i didn't like anyways, and not knowing where it came from, i didn't even want anything to do with it..i know that sounds ridiculous because clearly i bought a resale birkin, but eventually i will send it to the spa and fresher her up..

i'm pretty confident in its authenticity, as i own two other birkins, however i am no professional. if anyone looked at the photos and has any authenticity worries, please let me know, because again, i really am no expert and when buying resale, its always a worry.
