How to remove odor from a leather bag

Despite being a material with excellent qualities and an aesthetically pleasing appearance, leather often has a particular odor that many people may not like, almost leading them not to buy the bag or item of clothing.

And, in addition to its smell, leather can absorb other types of odors, such as cigarette smoke, odors from packaging or industrial area, where it’s made.

This is because of the pores that make up the leather, which absorbs any kind of smell.

However, the smell that comes from the leather, which can be very strong and pungent, is a sign that the material used is of excellent quality.

Also, that particular smell can fade away either over time or by employing simple home methods.

So, if you just bought a handbag or another leather accessory, and it emits a strong, almost unpleasant smell, don’t worry, because that is a sign that it is a quality product.

However, if you don’t want your bag to exude that type of odor, keep reading this article because now I will tell you how to remove odor from leather bags.

 How to get rid of odor from leather bags

At first, clean all the bag surfaces using a wet cloth, in order to remove any dirt or dust that may have accumulated over time.

Then, place the leather close to the sun’s rays and let it dry in the open air, at least for a day.

After it has dried, take some newspaper and wrap the bag in it and place it inside a container.

Finally, wait a few days.

If the smell is still there, I suggest you use other products such as lemon or baking soda.
