How can I get cigarette smoke smell out of a leather purse?

My wife bought a used purse and the previous owner must have chain smoked. How can she get the smell to go away?

There are some leather conditioner rubs that help to eliminate some odors, and using that may be a good start. You should be able to find them in a leather store, like a Wilson's, or even a Harley Davidson. Inside the purse, though, it's going to be a little tougher. I would recommend putting in a scented dryer sheet, and changing it to a new one every couple of days. On the interior, you can also try just a little bit of Fabreeze.

Slice some citrus like lemons and limes and put pieces in an open plastic bag and leave inside purse for 24 hours. The acid in the fruit should extract the odor and leave a pleasant one behind. Oh, and who cares if your a " Dude "

You can't get the smoke smell out of real leather. I used to work at wilsons for 4 years and it was a very
Common mis conception. The lotions and stuff do not work, once it gets in the pores it stays there. Sorry :(
