How to Get Smoke Smell Out of Leather Fifth Avenue Purse

By Amy Davidson

Saks Fifth Avenue is a high-end department store popular for its fashionable items. Leather purses are items you can find at Saks that are undoubtedly a stylish find. If you have a Saks leather purse that was previously owned by a smoker, or perhaps you recently quit, getting that smoke smell out can salvage your bag.

Keep your leather purse looking-- and smelling-- its best.

Step 1

Remove any items from the purse and shake the inside out, as well, to get rid of any debris. Wipe down the outside of the purse with a cool, damp cloth to also remove any dirt and debris on the outside.

Step 2

Lay square fabric flat and place baking soda in the center, then pull the corners up and secure them with a rubber band to make a small satchel. Make more for larger bags, and place them in the purse. Let sit for a couple of days, and then, replace the satchels as needed if smell persists.

Step 3

Pour ½ cup of white distilled vinegar with ½ cup of water in a small spray bottle and shake it up to mix thoroughly. Spray down the outside of the leather purse and let sit for a minute, then wipe away.
