    Open it up, and leave it open for a while. Use a little febreeze or something if you want to change the smell for a while...

    But pretty much air it out.

    Baking soda works well if you don't want your case to smell like a cheap whore's perfume. Spread some in the case and let it sit for a day or two - the only problem is when you vacuum it out it kind of clogs up your vac. Some spray products made for pet odors are often less flowery-smelling, but more $$ than you probably want to pay.

    :spit: Try drier sheets, They say it will eliminate cigerette smell from your car also ( only if you smoke once in a while)

    You can find an ozonator, which I use at work for getting odors out of cars at work, but they are $300+. I let my SKB case sit outside for a few days in a row, and after 9 months, I think it is gone. I noticed if you leave it closed, it will stink. Open it up empty and it doesn't smell nearly as bad.

  9. +1, or there's some things in the store you can buy that are deordorizors (?) for refrigerators that come in a webbed pouch. You could just keep it in the case, without having to vacuum up stuff afterwards. I don't remember what they're called, but you'll probably find them at a Big Lots, or Wal-Mart kind of store. Also, try using some activated charcoal in a pouch to take up the smell. Just put either one in and close up the case. Good luck!
