The smell of cigarettes quickly penetrates clothes, carpets and furniture

The pungent, intense and unpleasant smell of smoke is difficult to remove with the help of improvised means. If someone regularly smokes in the room or smoke enters the room from the balcony, the stench permeates everything from the walls to your clothes.

Perfumes and aromatic products can temporarily mask the smell of smoke. But to completely clean your home, you need radical methods. OBOZREVATEL figured out how to get rid of the cigarette smell at home.

The only fully effective way to get rid of the long-term accumulated smell of cigarettes is to repair. If you do not have the means or desire to radically change the situation, you can use some more tips.

Complete ventilation

Ventilate regularly. Open the windows not for 10-20 minutes, but for the whole day. It is better to make a draft so that odours are carried away.

Sources of odour

Get rid of all smoking-related items. This includes ashtrays, lighters, cigarette packs, cigarette butts, etc.

Objects that have absorbed smoke

You will have to clean the room thoroughly. Pillows, curtains, bed linen, clothes, furniture, books - all of these quickly absorb the smell of smoke. Pillows, bed linen, and curtains can be washed and hung out to dry in the open air. Put the rest of the things in the sun for a few hours, and then wash them if possible. If the smell still remains, you may need to get rid of some items.

Carpets and furniture

Carpets also absorb cigarette odour quickly and for a long time. You can sprinkle baking soda on carpets and furniture - it neutralises odours well. The procedure should be repeated several times. Leave the baking soda on the carpets for several days and then vacuum them. This way, you can also clean furniture.

Wash washable items in a machine with ½ cup of vinegar.

Clean walls

If the walls are washable, you can clean them with a special solution. Mix water and vinegar in a 1:1 ratio and wipe down the walls.
