Louis Vuitton, a luxury manufacturer of clothing, bags and shoes, was founded in Paris in 1854 as a maker of fine leather luggage. Today the firm is famous worldwide for its expensive goods that bear the famous "LV" monogram. Owning a Louis Vuitton bag guarantees that you possess a true example of fine leather goods. If an unpleasant smell is inside the bag, ridding yourself of the odor is easy.
Take all the items out of your Louis Vuitton bag. Take the bag outside or hold it over a garbage can and shake it out thoroughly. Turn on a small handheld vacuum and run it along the inside of the bag, scooping up dust and other items.
Fill six plastic baggies with baking soda. Knot them tightly. Stick a fork in each baggie, creating a series of large holes all over the bag. Place them inside the Louis Vuitton bag, evenly spaced away from each other. The holes in the bag will mean that some of the baking soda will seep out, but that's okay. Leave the plastic bags in there for a minimum of two days.
Remove the bags of baking soda after two days at the earliest. Turn the bag upside down over a garbage can and shake it out. Run your handheld vacuum cleaner across the inside of it again.
Spray the inside of the bag with Febreeze or a comparable odor-neutralizing product. Make sure your read the label of the product you choose to make sure it is safe for the material of your Louis Vuitton bag. Blot the lining with a thick layer of paper towels after each spray.
