light a spliff and blow the smoke into the bag, that's a more interesting smell at least. alternatively, throw the bag at a skunk

Well, my cats pee on mine all the time, I just soak it in hot water for an hour, then i take some lemons and squease them all over it and rubbing it into it. Then I let it dry for 15 minutos, then I was the lemon out and I put it in the sun for a day and then I wash it once more.

There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

Leave it outside for maybe a few days...slap some air fresheners in it...fabreeze the HELL out of it everyday...maybe wash off somehow

thats about all you can do...without having to start smoking

You could probably get the smell out with fabreeze and some fresh air

EDIT:

By this, i mean scrub the life out of it with some type of deoderizer then leave it outside to air for a few days...each day scrubbing it with DEOderizer...

if that doesnt work, burn it...fire is cool...plus it'll make you look awesome if you have friends over

Accessories are on sale and ship free at Musicians Friend right now... It'd probably cost you $15 total to get a new one.

Other than that I'd say literally soak it in Febreeze then throw it in the washer.

Try washing/soaking it in baking soda and vinegar. I used a solution of that for my Blues Deluxe's cab covering. Got the smoke smell out of there
