Removing smoke odor and other smells from ponies

Odors from cigarette smoke, cooking fumes, perfume and other fragrances can and do sometimes leech their way into the porous plastic of MLP bodies.
ichigo_pinkchan writes~ When it comes to removing smoke smell from ponies, I've become very good at it. The first time I did it I left the ponies standing in a sealed tupperware container with about an inch and a half of baking soda under their feet. I left them there for a couple weeks, and by the time I got them out (and rinsed 'em off), the smell was nearly gone! The second time I did it, I left the pony sitting in front of an open window for an evening (while the sun was setting). Good as new!
Mintys Mommy writes~ Honestly, I've never had a smell so bad that washing hasn't removed it - I just use the good ol' Soft Scrub w/ Bleach and that's killed all odors for me. I guess I've been lucky!
So Soft Claire writes~ For cigarette smells, I put the affected pony in a ziplock bag with 1/3 full baking soda and leave her for 3 weeks. Then I take her out, put her outside or on a window sill, and the fresh air whisks away the remaining scent. Good as new! I've also heard of using dryer sheets in a baggie with the pony. And cat litter apparently works for some people. I suppose you use it the same way as the baking soda.
