Car Smoke

I bought a used car that has a lingering cigarette smoke smell from the previous owner. Any tips, beyond the obvious, to get rid of the smell?

I am against it. As it is almost unreal to demove the smoke and dust on the cigarettes.

I would consider using a car detail person. They will cost a bit of money but if it makes your car better, might be worth it. You could also ask a local smoke/water damage expert on HOUSES for advice on how to get rid of the smell.

easy one. Two options. If you use either one, you should first clean the car as best as possible.



for light smoke odor you can use an Odor Bomb. Just do a search on ebay for Odor Bomb and you will find an assortment of products. Professional Water/Fire Restoration companies use a Fogging machine which is pretty similar to this. It uses an odor counteractant to knock down the fire smell so that they can do additional work in the structure.


for heavy smoke odor, buy a small Ozone Machine. Just do a search on ebay for Ozone Machine or Ozone Generator. They are $50. Just put in the car, close the windows and run it for 2 to 4 hours. Fire Restoration companies use larger units to remove the remaining odors after all the work is finished.

I don't like the smell of cigarettes in the car. I'm sick of it.

I quit smoking a little over a year ago. I now really dislike smelling someone's cigarette! I did go to using an e-cig, and id am grateful that I tried one and did work so well for me.
