There are also different scents of Febreeze--you may want to try a store with a bigger selection.  I agree that the outside thing is a good idea.  You could just spray the Febreeze on the bags while they're outside and you wouldn't have to deal as much with the smell.  Did you do a web search on removing cigarette smell?  You may want to try that--I once found out that you can use WD40 to take silly putty out of the carpet (useful info, but doesn't pertain to your problem!).

Best of luck,
Karen

Coffee can be used to absorb and remove smells. put some in a pair of panty hose(double layer for extra protection) and leave for a couple of days. Antique dealers use this to help with furniture. Also try cat litter.

You could try lightly misting the bags with a solution of half vinegar and half water.  Vinegar is a natural deodorizer, and the 'salady' smell goes away very quickly, and should take the smoke smell with it. 



Good Luck!

hmm.. all very good ideas.. wouldn't the vinegar leave a stain though?  were you talking white vinegar??
I looked around abit online but only really found what to do for one kind of fabric, not anything made with two kinds, vinyl and cotton, and i cant wash them, and I can't put them outside to air out because I live in a city!  I will try all your other suggestions though, thanks so much!
