    Instead of dryer sheets, try using a cloth soaked in unscented febreeze. That stuff chemically bonds w/odors, so it may take them away.

    Re: Smoke smell on rubber strap

    I got some of my grandma's furniture, smelled a lot of smoke! My mom told me to fill some bowls with vinegar and out one in each drawer.. A few days later couldn't smell the smoke any more! Might work too I you put it in a bag or something?

    I'd take the strap and hardware off, soak it in warm/hot water for 10 mins, then scrub with liquid Castile soap. If that doesn't work, scrub with baking soda and rinse thoroughly in warm water. :)

    Strap + Baking soda inside a ziplock should do the trick just as it does with any odor.
