Angel Jackson Biker Bag .... help needed! Hiya guys

won my dream bag on ebay a few days ago

http://www.angeljackson.co.uk/acatalog/totes.html

( last bag on this page, but in black)

It arrived today, and I adore it!

I got it for a really good price too!

However, It really smells,

like a combination of mustyness and cheap perfume!

it actually gives me a headache,

I dont want to ask for a refund, as i know i will never be able to own this bag so cheap,

but what can I do about the smell!

I would love any advice!

Thanks in Advance

Milly

Air it out- put some kitty litter in a bag and put it in the purse, I heard this works- Cute bag!

Depends upon what the lining is made of....
For light colored cotton and twill fabric linings, I have used a DIY home drycleaning kit, following the directions for "spot removal".... which entails moderately wetting a piece of the dry cleaning cloth and simply wiping down the lining, then letting it dry out.

Try putting some activated filter carbon (pet stores sell it for fish tanks) in a shallow dish at the bottom of the bag .... that will absorb odors.

oooh that sounds like a good idea,

then i dont have to actually spray or put anything on the bag that might ruin it,

Might try and go to the pet shop tomorrow!

that is one gorgeous bag!!! I love it. I'm in the US, and I haven't heard of this designer before.

BTW, I would put a little dish of baking soda in the bottom of the bag. Put the bag somewhere so that it will not be bumped. Close the bag for 24 to 48 hours. The odor should be gone when you open the bag. Carefully lift the little dish of baking soda out of the bag, so that you don't spill it.

I'm going back to that website!

I would put some coffee (five big spoons) into the bag and leave it for 48 h, this will absorb the smell

You got a lot of different solutions so I hope one or a combination of all these remedies work for you.
