Does anyone have any ideas of how to get their LV bags rid or cigaretter odor? I just bought a great used Speedy 35 but the cigarette smell is bothering my allergies.

What to do!!!!!???? :wacko:

I just received it in the mail today so perhaps it will air out in the next day or so but if anyone has any ideas PLEASE let me know

But won't febreeze made my bag smell like febreeze? i know that sounds stupid but do the have anything that is more like a neutralizer scent?

i remember using febreeze on my first car about 8 or 9 years ago and it took away the smell but the car clearly smelled like Febreeze. Until this day when I smell Febreeze i think about my old 1993 Honda Accord :wacko:

hiya there ,:nuts: i understand what you are feeling cuz i met the same condition, i tried using Dried Flowers which scent you prefer, then keep them in your speedy 35 for one day with the zip closed , it mightbe useful for anti-cigarette scent.;)

Bi-carbonate of soda absorbs odours well, pop some in a small pot and place it inside the bag - be sure to not tip the bag up though!
A few days should do the trick, failing that, it's good old fresh air....but depending on whether or not the bag has been long term smoke damaged, the Bi-carb may work.

Hi,
I just had the same issue with my balenciaga hobo..I put baking soda in a sealed container with it and it really help absorb the smell, mine smelled so bad it made me :sick:
I tried the fabric sheets, which help to mask the smell for a moment but then it came back. The baking soda actually absorbed it.

Good Luck..oh yeah and I also left it on my deck for a few hours.
