How does one clean terrible mildew/mold odor from a leather handbag? I do not take well to any chemical scents. Are there any safe products out there for this problem?

I would try things in this order, (doing the next one if the previous didn't do the job):
You could hang the purse outside in the sun and fresh air for several days, pulling the lining out to hang it by if possible. Clip it to a skirt hanger and hag out. If there is a fabric lining, you could spray it with a 1/3 lemon juice to 2/3 water solution. If you can test the lemon solution on the leather and it does not harm it, spray the leather as well. Let air dry outside. (08/27/2010)
