    I was given a holster many many months ago from a friend that was labeled "Bianchi .380" and never really knew what model it was designed to fit. After buying my sig p238 I realized that the holster was designed for a colt mustang and would work perfectly on my sig.

    Unfortunately it was kept in a smoking household and I can't stand the smell of smoke. Does anyone have any magic tips to remove the smell of smoke from a leather holster?

    :huh::huh:

    Dip it in deer musk. That will get rid of the smoke smell. Do not ask me how I know. :D

    Then you can post a thread titles "How do I get my holster to not smell like deer &!$$?" ...or "Why do I keep getting hit on by bucks?" :)

    On a serious note, you might check with a dry cleaner that will clean leather coats and see if they have any suggestions.

    you cant really
    best bet is to mask the smell with something else

    or sell the holster and buy a new one

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think I'll ask a dry cleaner and see what they say.

    Nope I've never been a smoker. Except for the occasional cigar I should say :thumbup:

    Upholstery and carpet cleaners know how to get smoke smell out. Car detailers know how to get the smoke smell out...
