Found 21st Aug 2010
Ok I bought a cheap bag from a Market stall whilst on hols. Now after unpacking it, it has a strange smell to it - a bit plasticky/fishy type!!!

It's not a fabric bag so I can't wash it. I've aired it but it's still lingering.

Any ideas what I can use on it - it's mainly inside the bag?

What is it made of?


Yep - Bicarb, or stick a Bounce sheet in it for a day or so if you've got some.

omg i got a kids one and he has had it in his oom and smells like sweat/fish
thanks guys will try the advice.

fill it with newspaper and put it in a bin bag full of scrunched up newspaper and tie it tight!

leave for a few days!

Bin it.
