Get rid of cigarettes and tabacco odours

Clean your ashtrays with ease

Any smoker knows that ashes stick to the bottom of ashtrays. You can stop this by putting various substances into the ashtray, including furniture polish. An old toothbrush can also help to remove stubborn stuck on ash.

Remove cigarette smells from your car

Open all the windows and allow some fresh air into the car. All the surfaces of the interior of the car need to be cleaned including the inside of the windows. There are a couple of household products that can be used but vinegar and baking soda are the best, they are cheap and environmentally sound.

Place a bowel containing 1-1/2 inches of vinegar inside the car overnight, ensuring the windows are closed. For best results repeat nightly for about a week (and don’t smoke in the car)

Sprinkle baking soda onto the carpet and the cloth seats. Let the baking soda set over night and then Hoover the floors and seats to remove all the white powder.

Removing nicotine stains

 

Nicotine stains can be very difficult to remove. If you have years of build-up, wash the walls with a mixture of liquid detergent and vinegar. Use the solution to gently scrub the walls with a circular motion.

If you have left the stain for to long you may need to repaint your walls and before you paint over cigarette stains you need to use a primer. Ask your local paint store for advice.
