As you know I tried the Coffee Bean approach, and I said I would give you an update!
Well.... what can I say???
URGED AT THE SMELL!!!
The Coffee Beans mixed with the Mothballs has to be the most vile smell I have smelt in a lifetime!
My next idea was.....
Cover it in a thin layer of Baking Powder and also have a piece of kitchen towel with a spoon full of Baking Powder in placed on top in the warm boiler cupboard.
Day 1 - Smelt a bit better but still had that disgusting coffee/mothball smell
Day 2 - Smell had virtually gone but thought I would leave it in for an extra day!
Day 3 - Cleaned off the Baking Powder, left no residue as far as I can tell and smells clean! YAY!
The morel of this story is...... if something leather smells like Mothballs or Smoke sprinkle some Baking Powder on it and leave it in a warm place for a few days, the smell will vanish!!!
