Mothball Smell on Leather

During a 900 mile trip and a 4 month stay at my house, my stepmother stored their leather jackets, chaps and other items in a container with mothballs! Now she cannot get the smell out. Does anyone have some ideas for us to try?

Mothball Smell in Leather Purse

You might try wadding up some newspaper and stuffing the purse with it for a day or so. I did this in my son's stinky tennis shoes and it worked great. (10/13/2004)
