Cigarette Smoke...

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

Hey guys, was wondering if any of you have bought figures before that were obviously from smoking homes? Even if said from non-smoking.

I got a few on eBay and when I got them even the shipping box smelt like smoke. Nothing was in the description or anything but the seller was honest and gave me a refund.

Also, any ideas and how to get the smell out? I got one that is MOC but the card smells like smoke and there's a hole in the bottom and I fear the figure inside got contaminated.

I got some ML Wolverines in a trade and they smelled AWFUL like cigarettes I was a bit disappointed cuz I figured I would have to throw them away due to my and several members of my family being bothered by the smell of cigarette smoke but I put them in a ziplock bag with some dryer sheets and a week later they couldnt smell a thing

I recently got two Sin City figures that smelt like nasty incense. I tried cleaning them off with glass cleaner then disinfectant spray. This cleaned them up, but did not remove all of the smell. Dryer sheets in a box did though. I let them sit for like a week.

Ah, I couldn't find that before. Thanks!

I did a twice over with sanitizing wipes and it seemed to get off a lot of yellow gunk but the smell was still there. I'll post back with results.

I've had good luck using febreze dryer sheets. Line a box with them and put the stinky figure inside and tape up the box. Check on it after a week or two and the smoke smell should be gone.

Going through the help pages provides a lot of answers to these types of questions.
