How do you remove the smell of cigarettes from your home and car?
Smokers often reach for them when driving a car or when resting at home. The smell of smoke, unfortunately, then settles on the upholstery, furniture, and curtains. For people who quit smoking, it is also essential to get rid of this characteristic and tempting smell from the environment. Just airing a flat or a car is not enough. Thorough cleaning and cleaning will be needed.
In the car, you have to start with necessary activities such as vacuuming, washing upholstery, rugs, washing plastic parts, glass, gaskets, and roof lining. A fragrance neutralizer is also worth buying for the car.
A canvas bag with ground coffee will work well (coffee absorbs significantly), which we keep, for example, on a shelf. You have to remember to exchange your coffee every two weeks. It is also worth buying an air freshener suspended on grilles, with a neutralizing effect of cigarette smoke.
When these actions are insufficient, it will help ozone the interior of the car. Thanks to this, apart from the bad smell, we will also remove mites, fungi, and mold. Disinfection with this method can be carried out in most car washing facilities. The prices of such services start from PLN 50.
To get rid of the smell of tobacco smoke from home, you also need to carry out standard cleaning and cleaning.
In turn, the furniture can be washed with dilute tea oil, which effectively absorbs unpleasant odors. It is also worth investing in an electric air purifier. The scent candles, incense sticks, and air fresheners will help you.
We keep our fingers crossed! Maybe this time, your attempt to quit smoking will be a success!
