    smelly mobile phone 6th Dec 17 at 10:41 AM
    Trying to remove the strong perfumey smell from a second hand smart phone. Any ideas?

    I know there's worse things it could smell of Considering a lot of people even take the thing into the toilet with them.

    Makes you wonder, how does a phone get so whiffy, anyway?? It smells like a tart's boudoir!!

    If you've already wiped down what you can then a sealed container alongside some bicarbonate of soda might help along with airing in fresh air somehow but I think you will largely have to put up with it until it fades
