Does anyone know how can I get rid of the smell of cigarette smoke from a leather jacket?
Inspired by s&b but on a tight budget I decided to hunt for some key pieces to update my wardrobe on ebay. Found a lovely brown leather jacket - love the style, it fits perfectly but it stinks of cigarette smoke. Is there anything I can do with it apart from throw it in the bin?!
Agree, fresh air is what it needs. Do you have a shed you could leave it hanging in for a while. We had a domestic disaster a few years ago, the damage caused everything to smell dreadful. It would have cost a fortune to dry clean everything to I tried hanging clothes in the draughty garden shed and it did the trick.
Turn it inside out damp wipe the lining allow to dry then febreeze it. Use leather cleaner on leather and hang up outside/garden shed/garage for as long as it takes. Worked on mine after lending to a friend whos' partner smoked (inside their house it appears).
I've had it hung outside all day and it hasn't made a difference. Limoncello - i didn't even consider the lining! IntheFrame I think I have some leather sofa cleaner - will make a start. Thanks for all the suggestions!
