    Seal the leather in a baking soda solution.

    1. Place the leather item in the pillowcase of the zip-lock bag.

    2. Tie the end of the pillowcase or seal the zip-lock bag.

    3. Remove the baking soda by using a small vacuum or a clean cloth.

    4. Repeat the baking soda process until the bad odor is gone.

    I would not sprinkle the baking soda in the bag... or you'll have a messy jacket to clean up. Maybe put it in a small pillowcase. An alternative is actually to put some charcoal is a breathable pouch (again like a pillowcase, and seal it up with the jacket.
