Hey guys, I just got a holster off eBay. The problem is it smells like it came from a home where people smoke. Any tricks to getting the smell out? I paid $8.27 shipped, so I think I got a good deal. :)

charcoal with take out any smell, put the leather in a box card board or plasticwith charcoal and just let it sit a while.

Snuffy I never thought of that. I did spray it down with some odor remover stuff we had, but it didn't help much. The smell is inside of it as well as outside so polish won't work. I was hoping that it would just air out but so far it hasn't. I'll have to try charcoal. I hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

I have a Ford Ranger truck that I bought used and the previous owners smoked in it. I've had it for over 4 years and when the weather is damp you can still smell smoke in it. I don't know how you would ever completely get the smell out.
