    I bought a silicon case for my iPod Touch at some store that sold cheap third party accessories for smartphones and whatnot, most of it was made in China and this particular case I bought has a rather unpleasant odor to it and after a while of use, the scent catches onto my hand. Is there anyway to get rid of this smell?

    First of all I'd suggest to ditch the case xD it shouldnt be doing that. Even a cheap one from eBay would probably be more suitable.

    Haha XD. Maybe some Febreeze or dipping it in water will help? I know it sounds crazy, but it just might work...

    Soak it in some dishwater for a while. Dawn best but others would work. If that doesn't work, you probably should get rid of it. It's probably made by one of the same companies that made all those toys with lead and pesticides....
