5 tips that could help you permanently get rid of smoke smell

These tips can help you get rid of that smoke smell


Whether you rented or bought a house where the former owners were smoking or bought a used car that smells like an ashtray; the smell of cigarette smoke is never pleasant. It can take a long time for the smell to disappear on its own. A burnt pan or barbecue can also cause an unpleasant smoke odor for a long time. You can try to mask it with all kinds of air fresheners, but there are some things that could help you get rid of the smell of smoke permanently. Here are five tips.

1. Apples

Apples absorb odors very well, making them perfect for this purpose. Take an apple and cut it in half. Place the two halves in the smoke-smelling space and leave them there for one night. If all goes well, the apple will absorb the smell of smoke.

2. Vinegar

The smell of vinegar will neutralize the smell of smoke, which will completely remove the smell. Open a window and make sure that all the animals are locked in another room, as the smell of vinegar is also quite acrid. Place a saucepan filled with vinegar on the stove and bring it to a boil. Let the smell of vinegar run throughout the house to eliminate the smell of smoke. You can also mix a cup of vinegar with two liters of warm water and use it to wipe furniture, floors and walls. Do your clothes smell like smoke? Put them in the washing machine but add vinegar as a fabric softener. It will do the trick.

3. Baking soda

Baking soda is the ideal solution for carpets, fabric sofas and upholstery in your car. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on the smelly surface and let stand 12 to 24 hours. Keep an eye on small children and pets and keep them away from baking soda. Once the waiting period is over, vacuum the fabric in question. Is the smell still there? Repeat the process. The baking soda absorbs odors and moisture, which means that the smell of smoke and other unpleasant odors will disappear.

4. Coffee

If you drink coffee regularly, you have a very simple solution to the smell of smoke ready in your kitchen. Dry the leftover coffee grounds after making the coffee and divide the grounds into small bowls. Place these bowls around your house or car. Replace them every 24 hours and the smell of smoke will disappear. Coffee grounds absorb the smell and spread the pleasant smell of the coffee itself.

5. Ammonia

If none of the previous, softer solutions seem to work, it's time to bring the big guns. Take out the ammonia! Yes, the ammonia also smells, but this smell fades much faster than the smell of smoke. Especially if the smell of smoke has really settled in the walls and floors of your house. If you are going to use this method, you should wear a hat or tie a tea towel around your mouth and nose and make sure that no pets or small children are around. Mix a cup of ammonia with four liters of water and use it to scrub floors, walls and ceilings. If you think the smell of ammonia is a little too intense, you can use baking soda to absorb the smell of ammonia. Sprinkle the baking soda around the room and vacuum it up after a few hours.
