Smoke Free........%^R%^$

I just received a DSUB 8 XLR from Evilbay..It was well packed and I said "cool"
Open the box; the cable and my clothes smelled like we have been smoking 80 packs a day
How disgusting...
I tried to perfume and stuff..I guess the cable gonna hang outside for a few days....

Not too sure if I should give the seller a positive

that sucks, cigarette smoke is nasty and hard to get out. i don't think it warrants neg feedback unless the ad said smoke free studio. but not sure would give pos feedback either.

Try using an odor eliminator product. I've cleaned a few smokey snakes with them. After a thorough cleaning I wasn't offended by the odor any longer.

Good luck!

Just take up smoking, then you won't notice anymore, and besides, it makes you look cool and sophisticated.
