    My mother in law boils some vinegar and water in a pan on the stove. Sometimes adds some vinegar in a vaporizer. The vinegar smell dissipates quite quickly. As an ex-smoker I don’t smell cigarettes in her house.

    It's not easy, but this might help:

    1. Fill small bowls with white vinegar or ammonia and place them in rooms where the stench is most pungent.
    2. Clean your carpeting. According to Good Housekeeping, granulated dry carpet cleaners work well for removing cigarette smells from an apartment.
    3. Wash your walls using a gentle, all-purpose detergent.
    4. Repaint the walls if the smell cannot be sufficiently removed with detergent.

    As weird as it sounds, boil an onion. Also, Odo-Ban is a great odor eliminator that leaves a light clean scent in the air.

    All of these suggestions sound good. I also used those odor absorbers that you can get at places like Walmart, They come in a three inch plastic container, usually in cleaning supplies. Also, use fabreeze on drapes etc. The more odor absorbing fabric and carpet you can get rid of, the better, It takes days but it wil work out.

    Ok, here’s what we did, a client smoked for 13 yrs in the garage. The garage was completely repainted, but cupboards had to be handwashed as well as garage door. I used Lysol bathroom spray foam cleaner. All gone. It was so gross, dripping, be sure to have soapy, warm water in a bucket to wash it all off. And wear gloves! Also used bamboo & charcoal odor removers.They can be reused after drying out. If you want, you can also use TSP. Good luck!

    Hello Becki,

    There is a special spray you can buy to help remove it or use Febreez fabric spray. Wash everything you can and spray the rest. Washdown the walls and Shampoo the Carpet. Best of luck!

    My husband was able to to get cigarette smoke out of a previously owned truck when he bought it. He bought ODOBAN and sprayed it every time he got into the truck. It took about a month of doing that but I don't smell the smoke anymore. I would have one in every room of your home.
