In my previous posts, I have discussed how to get smoke smell out of furniture. In this post we are going to learn how to get cigarette smoke smell out of clothes.
There are multiple ways to get cigarette smoke smell out of your clothes. Some of these are listed below:
Dryer sheet in a Ziplock bag
Another effective way to get rid of cigarette smoke smell from your clothes is by placing a dryer sheet in a ziplock bag along with your clothes. Try not letting dryer sheet come in contact with clothes as it can stain them. Leave your clothes in there for a couple days and then check if the odour is gone or not. You can use scented dryer sheets as well.
Baking soda in a Ziplock bag
You can get cigarette smoke odour out of your clothes by placing your clothes in a ziplock bag and adding baking soda to it. Let that stay for a couple of days. The baking soda tends to absorb odour thereby making your clothes cigarette smoke free.
Vinegar and Baking soda mix
Fill your washing machine with warm water and add a cup full of white vinegar to it. Add baking soda for boosting the effect. Let it soak for at least 60 minutes. Add detergent and wash your clothes. Prefer air dry over machine dry as clean air acts as purifier for bad cigarette odour.
Activated Charcoal and your closet
You can place activated charcoal in your wardrobe closet. Activated charcoal absorbs bad cigarette odour and leaves the closet smell free. Other options which may use instead of activated charcoal are wads of newspaper, coffee grounds in a fabric baggie, or cedar chips, among others, in the zip lock bag method or in your closet. You an try different combinations until you find what works best for you.
Hanging your clothes in open air
At times your clothes just need to breathe in more of fresh air to make them cigarette odour free. Try hanging them in open and assess the effect of it. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight as it can effect the colouring of your clothes.
I hope this proves to be helpful towards your odour fighting. Please let others know of your feedback through comments section below. You can also read my other articles on getting smoke smell out of books and how to get smoke smell out of house
