How to get rid of smoke smell?

I got a barrel case and the previous owner was a heavy smoker. I've aired out the case for several days but it still smells all smokey. Any suggestions for removing the smoke smell?

Sprinkle some baking powder.

Although I've never had a problem with just leaving it in an open area and it going away in like 5 days.

To remove the smell of smoke from your house or car, you can put some vinegar in a bowl for a few Days. It absorbs the odor and the home will be free from the smell of smoke! Try something like that with your barrel case.

Dry airflow is usually your best bet for getting rid of any oder.

I've always been told letting dew fall on fabrics and letting the sun dry them would take away the smoke smell, but my grand mother tells me that so it could be an old wives tale.

That does work, but it's just a fancy way of saying "leave it outside 'till it stops stinking."

How about good old water? Spray it with some sort of cleaner, rinse it off and let it dry out.

I've had good luck tossing it into a plastic bag full of baking soda.

Sprinkle some coffee grinds in it and let it sit a day or 2 they will absorb the smoke smell (someone told me about it for getting smoke smells out of cars)
