Cigarette smoke has a blatant and, even for smokers, unpleasant odor. Here are some proven ways which will show you how to eliminate cigarette smoke.
Wash everything that you can wash. If the whole room smells of smoke from last night’s party all that you need is a good cleaning to remove deposits that retain odors. Vacuum clean the armchairs and all similar types of furniture in order to draw deep particles of deposited odors. The same applies to car seats.
A dish of white vinegar left uncovered in a bowl overnight can do surprisingly well at remove cigarette smoke odor. Alternatively use a lemon or orange. Peel them and use their skins against the stench. Leave as much as you like of their skin in the car or apartment for a few days (until the skin dries up completely). This will completely eliminate or severely reduce odors.
Baking soda is a true, tested method of removing unpleasant smells. Whether you want to clean the carpet, dirty old couch or stained car seats, soda is your friend. Sprinkle soda over contaminated areas and leave for several hours. Then clean the area with a vacuum cleaner and the job is finished.
You can use the power of absorbing grains of coffee to get rid of cigarette smell. Do not spread everywhere like baking soda because coffee can leave stains. Instead, wrap it in several coffee filters (or paper towels) and keep it closed. Put these packages in places where the smoke smells the most.
Ventilate the room or car. This is the least strenuous method of all so far, and we certainly need to open all windows and doors for several hours to expel the stench from pillows, carpets and elsewhere.
Perhaps there is nothing aesthetic in coal, but if you leave a few lumps in the car or in the room you will see that it will absorb all the smell for about a week.
The smell of cigarettes can make your apartment smell like the filthiest night club and your car a giant ashtray. Smokers do not want to dwell in the stagnant stench, and it causes non-smokers people to cough, or even induces a headache. If you have been wondering how to eliminate cigarette smoke you can try the methods mentioned above, or you can buy a professional smoke cleaning or air purifier device which will do the job for you.
