My mace went off in my Coach purse!

Please, if anyone could offer any advice as to how I can clean it? I would get it dry cleaned, but I don't want the people at the dry cleaning place to suffer. I have it in a closet now. Everything in it is ruined. The money I gave the pizza guy smelled like it lol. Ugh. By the way I don't know what collection it's from, but it's satin inside and a satin-ish material on the outside? (You can tell I'm not a Coach guru lol) Thanks for any and all advice! :-)

  • I'd set it out in the sun to air out but the charcoal idea is a good one as well. That satin is ruined but if it's inside then no one will see it. Email the mace manufacturer for more ideas

  • maybe try some activated charcoal for smell removal. Ask for it at a pet store

  • Thank you! Should I just keep it in there until the smell goes away and then get dry cleaned?

  • to the best of my knowledge... satin is very hard to get stains out of... is it just the smell or a stain?

  • Well it doesn't appear to be stained, but I can't get past the smell long enough to look at it lol. Thanks ladies!
