    Getting Rid of the Smell of Smoke

    Cigarette smoke can leave an odor and even a discoloring film on things around the house? How can you freshen the air and furniture? Can this film be prevented?

    Sorry can't help on this one. Cig smoke makes me ill to the gut... can't be around it and can't stand the smell or smoking in general.

    My father smoked almost three packs of cigarettes a day up til a few weeks before he died (of lung cancer among other things, no surprise there), and when we went into his apartment to clear it out and clean, you can imagine the smell and the film. We had to get rid of the upholstered furniture, it was beyond help, but I managed to salvage the coffee table and the china cupboard. It took several cleanings with Murphy's Oil Soap to get the sticky nicotine residue (it was a weird orange colour, very bizarre) off the wood, but the pieces finally looked and smelled much, much better.

    We don't allow smoking in our house, we have seating outside for the smokers in the family. My parents had to repaint the inside of their house because of the smoking in the house. They quit smoking in the house for years until Dad had a stroke last year and now they are back to smoking inside. Mom uses alot of fabreze to combat the smell.

    My husband and I are non smokers but my parents both smoke as does my mother-in-law.

    An inexpensive eco friendly solution to improving indoor air quality and remove offensive smoking or pet odors. Air-ReNu is a blend of natural rare earth minerals made of a variety of elements, aluminum, iron, magnesium, sodium, potassium and lithium. These minerals are finely ground then mixed with paint, when applied to a wall of a home. Air-ReNu, works 7/24/365 cleansing the air of impurities and removing odors.

    Don't think the film can be prevented. If a person has quit smoking, they can reprint the walls with Dutch Boy paint that is called refresh, it wicks odors away and lasts as long as the paint is on your wall!
