Good Questions: How Can I Get Rid of the Smell of Smoke?

Pin it button
Hello AT,

I just bought a small armoire from craigslist. The problem is that it came from a smoker's home and it reeks. I sprayed it with Febreeze, washed it down completely with Murphey's Oil Soap, and have left baking soda sitting inside the drawers and cabinets for 5 days. It still smells! What else should I try?

Thanks! Leslie
