Any tips for removing smell (specifically cigarette smell) from resin? Have a hard(ish) to find band for a DW-6500 skyforce which was obviously owned previously be a smoker. Tried various things like covering in aftershave, washing etc to try and shift the smell but it still lingers. Quite a lot....

Throw it in a sealed bag with baking soda, coffee, or charcoal and let it sit in the hot sun for a day. Some people suggest spraying with chemicals, but I never trust such things to not harm the resin. Baking soda won't hurt it a bit. Coffee will make it smell like coffee, but I like that smell compared to stinky cologne or smoke.
