Yay glad to know my Vodka hack worked for your bag. It really has never failed me. I have found it especially useful in the armpits of jackets like leather or suede that have a lining and really don't need all over dry cleaning.

I hate the smell of Febreze. I've bought things from Nordstrom that arrived with that smell. Sometimes hanging them outside for a day or two helps. Not everything can be washed, and I've tried it and had an entire load coming out of the dryer with a faint but definite smell. From now on I plan on sending such items back first thing.

Now I know about vodka I have a new method to deal with it. Thanks!
