What a very good idea! I'll try it on some of my portables.

Good idea. I have had good luck sitting my machines out in the sun. I usually remove the housing and let it sit felt side up toward the sky for a few days.

Nice! I like lavender. My big issue is usually a sharp smell I think is mildew or mold. I'll try this.

Old smoke smell is the one thing I get really obsessive about. My worst case is an Olympia SM9 that had so much nicotine that it was yellowish and the works were gummed up. That was my first try at full immersion typewriter bathing.

i love to hav'em in my wardrobe, but the idea to put them into a typewriter is really cool. :)

Interesting solution. I hope the lavender smell outlasts that of Nicotine. But I wouldn't hold my breath on that... you may be finding yourself doing maintenance re-scentings.

Solution: an open box of baking soda next to the said typewriter. Works for like magic for me.
