How to get smoke smell out of clothes

In my previous posts, I have discussed how to get smoke smell out of walls and baseboards. In this post we are going to learn how to get smoke smell out of clothes.

There are multiple ways to get smoke smell out of your clothes. Some of these are listed below:

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 odour.

Dryer sheet in a Ziplock bag

Another effective way to get rid of 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 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 smoke free.
