Even for those with no allergies at all, the smoke smell coming from your leather garments is never welcome. Getting it out of all leather goods may be time consuming, but the efforts will pay off in the end.
Different methods that can be used for removing the odor from your leather jackets, trousers or skirts. Our suggestions will help you bring back the fresh scent to all of your favorite leather clothes.
The first thing you can do is take a ziploc bag and put the leather garment inside, together with few unscented dryer sheets. Leave them to stay in the bag for few days. This method is completely harmless, requires almost no effort and will freshen up your items real quick and easy.
If you feel like those stubborn smoke smells are still there, then you can try some other methods.
Take one part vinegar with one part water and mix them together. Use a soft cloth to rub the surface of your leather item with this mixture, but be careful not to saturate the leather. Let it dry and then repeat the same procedure until the odor is finally gone.
You can also try mixing one part water with one part rubbing alcohol and apply it in the same way.
Don’t doubt the power of the coffee grounds to absorb odors quickly and effectively. Take one big garbage bag and fill it with fresh, dry coffee grounds. Place the leather piece inside and allow it to set until the odor is gone.
Another magical substance for absorbing odors perfectly is the baking soda. Place your leather garment in a pillowcase and sprinkle a fine layer of baking soda over the surface of the leather and inside of it. Tie the end of the pillowcase and let it sit like that for one or two days maximum. After baking soda did its wonders, you can remove it by vacuuming it, but be gentle and try not to scratch the leather.
