Top smells like smoker

Hey guy i just got a used top for the JKU but it smells like a smoker. Itís very dusty right now i have it in the garage airing out. I wanted to take advantage of the nice windy day today and scrub it. Any tips on chemicals or anything. I do t plan on putting it on till April so it has time to air out and dry.


I would like to, but my wife won't let me.

Power wash it at the carwash with soap and then rinse and let dry?

This would be my guess also, although I'm not familiar with a JK hard top. Is it finished on the inside ?

If it is hard surface, I would think the smell is just on the surface.

Smoker?

As in tobacco, or meat?

Can't see anyone complaining about the smell of smoked meat.

I would have that smell in an air freshener.
