I finally got a travel humidor and am amazed how strong the chemical odor is. And it seems like it’s the foam more than the plastic itself. Do I just air everything out? What have you all done about this?

Thanks.

Try stuffing it with newspaper. That usually takes the odour away or try putting dry coffee grounds in it.

Ground coffee grounds do work great for removing odors.

Usually just opening up and setting it in the sun will take care of it also

Wash it out with dish soap. If it still smells you can use white vinegar.

i got mine for $18 on Amazon. first one i ever bought. i've always used a ziplock bag but i like it so far. it doesn'r have slots for cigars like i thought it would. it looks like those bed bads the hospital uses on the inside.

This one came with the corrugated foam inserts and I think those absorbed all the new plastic smell, they are where the odor seems to be coming from. Trying the coffee grounds trick but it sure doesn't seem intuitive to me, coffee has such a strong odor...

A box of baking soda will also absorb odors.

Mine finally arrived today, the "15 count Megilla" with zero off odors. I have bought several and never had a problem. You had me a bit worried when I read this post originally.
