So I won a black MC pochette off of eBay at a fair price. It was adverstised as "new, never used". I took a chance and pretty much assumed that it wasn't new, but gently used a few times. I specifically asked it it smelled like smoke, perfume, or moth balls and the reply was no, just smells like new. So I get it and it definately smells smokey. I'm trying to air it now and am contemplating some of the othe techniques I've read on here. I wonder though if anyone has actually had the lining replaced on a smokey bag. Will that get rid of the smell? I wonder if the canvas has absorbed the smokey smell though and the new lining would just stink after awhile. I've sent the seller two messages with different options (return, partial refund for new lining), but have not heard back yet.
