When i paint my tefillin batim with the paint. It has a certain type of smell. I just want to know how to get rid of the smell as it doesn't smell like natural leather as tefillin should smell like.

    Maybe wearing them daily will help take away the scent eventually? I don't know though. My tefillin never smelled like leather, at least not in the same way a leather jacket, etc. smells. Tefillin have their own smell, and it's usually the paint that gives them that scent. – ezra Dec 15 '19 at 3:37
  • The smells feel artificial like I'm smelling something machine-like/ chemical-induced. – Steve Luong Dec 15 '19 at 5:21

    I suggest you leave them out of their boxes in a room with an open window for several hours. – Avrohom Yitzchok Dec 15 '19 at 10:57
