    I bought a new silicon case for my incredible and it smells pretty bad(like diesel exhaust almost) Any way to get rid of that? I was thinking maybe dish soap but i'm not sure.

    That's just the smell of new silicone: It's made up of the same thing as Diesel/Gasoline is. It's the same as the "new car" smell.

    Good news? It will go away on it's own.

    Good quality silicone rubber doesn't have a strong smell - was it a cheap case that may not have been properly cured?

    Washing it with detergent and water certainly couldn't hurt.

    I tried for days to get ride of the smell.
    I washed it several times, used febreze and left it alone in a zip lock bag.

    I finally made a paste solution of baking soda and water and cover the skin and let it sit over night.
    The smell is finally gone.

    It might have been that I tried for a couple of days or the baking soda.

    Can't hurt to try.

    Hope it helps.
