how to get vintage leather smell out...


TRIBE Member
i know this is a long shot, but anyone know how to get that nasty vintage leather smell out, i have this wicked jacket from the 60's but i can't wear it cause it fukin stinks, tried fabreeze, airing it out for months..even left it at stereo for hours hoping it would stink like sweat and cigarretes...that didn't work either.

anyone have a proper solution?

I think it's impossible.
Why would you want that stink out? Is it so bad that it's like burnt tires?

I think old leather smells like sex.
