Just received a wonderful Signature Patchwork Coach. It's kind kind of a must smell to it. Does anyone have any advice on how an odor can be eliminated? I've wiped it down inside and out with wipes, and tried the baking soda technique to no avail.

Thanks

maybe some dryer sheets? leave them there for a few hours (or a day) to absorb the smell.

Have you tried airing it out, in the outside air? I did this with a musty bag recently and it really worked well. Instead of just covering up the musty odor, it seems to have actually removed the odor altogether. I'm sensitive to Febreze and other smells, so I really wanted to stay away from that type of thing...

Try hanging the bag outside (on a hanger or something) on a nice day. The air and UV from the sun should help.

The sun and fresh air should definately help. But if that doesn't work Try Activated charcoal tablets

If outside airing doesn't help seal it in a plastic zip lock with some baking soda along side it ( in a separate container) in the bag for a few days and see if that helps.

Citrus Magic solid airfreshner....about $5-$8 at walmart or walgreens....leave it in the bag a couple days, it will take the smell out but smell like Citrus. Then air it out for a couple days, the bag will not longer smell like Citrus but like a normal handbag
