Through the beers, cheers the basements and clubs.
Ciggies and weedies, under a light or in the dark.
Frankie has an air about him if you will.
Looking to improve his malodorous sparkle.
You really have to put your nose inside (chassis is out)
to get a whiff, none the less, Frankie is a stinker.
Tried an apple inside a bag. have heard of kitty litter,
activated charcoal. Thoughts or home remedies appreciated.
Get the funk out,
Yooperdan

Clean out the tar and nicotine with a good household cleaner like Fantastik or Formula 409, etc. and a damp sponge. You can try what auto detailers use to clean out car interiors, Ozium.

I have placed things inside a plastic bag and then sprayed the item with Ozium and then closed up the bag. If the smell has gotten into the foam backing of the tuck and roll, you may have to treat it a little more than a more normal cabinet.

Whst helps greatly is to scrub the seams in between the pleat's with a Tooth brush and hot water with some dish washing liquid in it.
Wet down, scrub it and wipe out with a paper towel , and maybe more then once!

I've had this issue over and over and I just wipe them down and let them air out over time. This other advice make's a lot more since and I will have to take it also.

So how did this project work out? My SC has the fragrance of an old pawn shop. It has been wiped down but I suspect the cabinet internals are the source. I've ordered some Ozium and will place the canister inside the cabinet and bag her up for a few days. The cover shares the aroma as well. Perhaps I should use that to bag the amp? Curious as to how things worked out for the OP.

I love the smell of tuck-n-roll in the morning. It smells like...I dunno..., victory.

I removed the back of the SC, opened the Ozium vents to about half, placed it inside the cabinet and replaced the back. I then slipped the cover over the amp and let it sit in the garage for a couple of days. Bingo! Stank is gone. Now the outside of the cover needs a scrub of vinegar & water to finish the job. While I did not mind that old vintage aroma until it filled my studio room -- a bit too vintage for the wife so it had to go. Ozium works!
