How to eliminate bad odors of your sheepskin (waist)coat

To eliminate unpleasant odors from your sheepskin coat there are a few simple actions you can take:

  1. Air out your fur coat in a well-ventilated area or outdoors, preferably during humid periods like dawn or dusk. The misty conditions can enhance the results.

  2. One effective method is placing an open bag of coffee grounds inside a closed garment bag along with your fur coat. Allow the coat to sit with the coffee grounds until it absorbs the coffee scent and the musty odor is completely gone. This process can take anywhere from one day to a week. Afterward, remove the fur from the garment bag and hang it outside to ensure proper ventilation.

  3. Another step to eliminate odors from the fur or lining of your garment is to lightly dust the fur part with baking soda. Gently brush the baking soda into the fur fibers using a fur brush, or rub it onto the fabric or leather interior. Finally, remove the baking soda from your coat by holding it from the shoulders and giving it a few gentle yet vigorous shakes.

By following these simple steps, you can effectively eliminate musty odors from your fur. Additionally, ensure proper storage in a cotton garment bag with ample ventilation, and schedule an annual cleaning by a professional furrier to maintain a pleasant scent for your real fur coat throughout the year.
