This afternoon a friend remarked about the lingering cigarette smell remaining on their couch after a smoker friend crashed her pad. Cigarette odour is one of those tough, long lasting smells that can be absorbed quickly into fabrics and upholstery, and not exactly a welcoming home scent, if you ask us. We sent our friend a link for Vamoose 1808T Tobacco Odor Eliminator, a product particularly formulated for odour removal; a 32 oz bottle can treat up to 500 sq. ft., containing an odour-eliminating chemical called Novexium, which converts the offending odour "to a non-volatile, odorless solid, irreversibly and nearly instantaneously upon contact". Supposedly, this is a favourite treatment in the hotel/hospitality industry, but we wonder if good ole vinegar would be just as effective.
