Remove the smell of smoke from furniture

If you or someone else has been smoking indoors for a long time, it might be difficult to remove the smell of smoke from the furniture. The odour from cigarettes is strong, unpleasant and lingering. In this article, you will find a few simple hacks which can help you remove the smell of smoke from furniture. You can also read about how you can avoid the smell of smoke in the future by using smoke-free alternatives like IQOS.

How to remove the smell of smoke from furniture

Removing the smell of smoke from furniture is not always easy and requires patience. How to remove the odour depends on the type of furniture. If you have upholstered furniture, such as an armchair or a sofa with removable upholstery, you can start by removing the upholstery and letting it soak in a mixture of 1 decilitre vinegar and 5 litres water. Leave for approximately 30 minutes and then wash the fabric in the washing machine according to the instructions.

If the upholstery is not removable, you can try to get rid of the smell of smoke by putting vinegar on the furniture. Mix vinegar and water, soak a cloth in the mixture and gently wash the furniture with the cloth. You may have to repeat the process several times to get rid of the smell of smoke from the furniture. Let the furniture dry and open the window for a few hours to get fresh air into the room.

If you have large carpets that are damaged by the smell of smoke, you can either wash the carpet with a mixture of cold water, soap and vinegar or try to sprinkle bicarbonate or baking soda onto the carpet to remove the smell. Let the powder sit for a couple of hours and then vacuum thoroughly.

Both vinegar and bicarbonate are excellent ingredients to neutralise and remove bad smells. Vinegar should, however, always be used with some caution to avoid damage to delicate textiles.

How to remove the smell of smoke from a room

To remove the smell of smoke from a room, simply cleaning the furniture might not be enough. You might need to clean the room thoroughly, too. Start by washing the furniture and then put a bowl with vinegar in the room. Leave it for at least one day and then exchange it for a bowl with lemon water to get rid of the previous odour.

In the worst-case scenario, the smell of smoke is just too strong to remove. In this case, you might need to renovate and repaint the walls with an odour-blocking paint, which prevents nicotine and the smell of smoke from penetrating the walls. The furniture is then likely to be unsalvageable and you will probably need to throw it away.

Avoid the smell of smoke on furniture with IQOS

IQOS is a smoke-free alternative for adult smokers. IQOS uses innovative HeatControl technology, which heats tobacco to a temperature lower than 350 degrees instead of burning it. Since the tobacco in our heatsticks is heated from the inside, a vapour is created instead of smoke. This gives you a cigarette-like experience without fire, ash or odour. This means you can avoid the problem of the smell of smoke on furniture.

Sweden - A smoke-free country

IQOS is based on many years of research and groundbreaking technology. Our mission is to make Sweden one of the first smoke-free countries in the world, while giving smokers a true cigarette-like experience without smoke.
