Smoke smell is very persistent and is perceived as annoying, especially by non-smokers. If you are a smoker yourself or allow other people to smoke in your apartment or in your car, you are then confronted with the penetrating smell in rooms or on textiles such as clothing, pillows, upholstered furniture, etc. This is undoubtedly unpleasant, so it is hardly surprising that almost all affected people want to get rid of the odor as soon as possible. In this guide we will tell you which odor elimination options are available to you.

Remove the foul smell of smoke from the apartment

If you smoke in an apartment for a longer period of time, the nicotine settles on the walls and furniture and leaves a yellow-brownish hue. The smell of smoke also sticks to clothing and textiles. What the passionate smoker himself may not even notice, however, becomes immediately clear to visitors in the apartment: there is a penetrating smell of smoke in the air. Removing this requires a few tricks.

The best remedy for the smell of smoke is of course not to let it arise in the first place. As a smoker, for example, you can simply smoke on the balcony or go to the front door. This may take some effort at first, but you will be richly rewarded for it. You will soon be enjoying fresh air in your home and the blue haze will stay outside. As a non-smoker, you can also easily prohibit visitors from smoking in your apartment. After all, as a host, you don't have to accept a smoky apartment just because there are visitors. So that your visitors still feel comfortable, just give them the opportunity to smoke on the balcony or in the garden.

If you have been smoking regularly or occasionally in your apartment and you now want to eliminate the smell of smoke, there are a few tips and tricks available to you to reduce or remove the smell of nicotine.

Home remedies for the smell of smoke

The smell of cigarettes can be eliminated quite well with a few simple home remedies. It is best to try out several of our tips at once to get a particularly effective result.

Emptying the ashtray: Never leave a full ashtray in the home. Always take the ashtray out immediately and empty it in the garbage can. This prevents the smell of cold ash from spreading in the apartment in the first place.

Ventilation: As simple and easy as it is. Ventilation is the classic and extremely effective when it comes to getting rid of the nicotine smell. But proper ventilation has to be learned. Unfortunately, ventilating on tipping does not do too much. In contrast, it is much better to ventilate a smoker's apartment several times a day. To do this, open the window completely and let fresh air flow in for ten minutes. You will achieve an even better effect if you ventilate across the room. To do this, open several windows in the apartment completely for about ten minutes.

Coffee: Place fresh or used coffee powder in a bowl in several places in the apartment. Coffee binds odors particularly well and also smells pleasant itself.

Lemon: Lemons are a real miracle cure for the smell of smoke. Simply cut a lemon into several slices and place them in a bowl of boiling water. Leave the bowl in the smoking room for several days and you will notice that the nicotine smell will dissipate over time.

Vinegar: An alternative to lemon is vinegar. Prepare a bowl of hot water and add a dash of vinegar. Place the bowl with the mixture in the smoking room for a few days so that the smell is bound and evaporated. If the cigarette smell is particularly persistent, it is worthwhile to distribute several containers with vinegar water in the room. You can achieve an even better effect if you also wipe smooth surfaces, such as furniture, with the mixture.

Scented candles: Scented candles create a pleasant smell in the home and can be helpful in eliminating nicotine odor.

Scented oils: Scented oils with fresh scent notes, such as citrus, orange or eucalyptus, cover unpleasant smoke odors.

Rose water: Rose water gives off a pleasant smell in the home. It is also said to bind unpleasant odors. Simply place a bowl of rose water in the smoking room for better indoor air.

Devices for eliminating & preventing smoke odor

You can achieve an even better effect than with home remedies with special air purifiers that professionally clean the air in your room and thus not only contribute to your well-being, but also to your health. Air purifiers are available in different price ranges and for different room and apartment sizes. They are not only effective against smells from tobacco smoke, but also against smells from pets, kitchen smells, paint smells and other unpleasant smells that are perceived as annoying in the home. Depending on the model selected, the air is not only cleaned of odors, but also of air pollutants and industrial pollution. In order for an efficient air purification to take place, however, a device must be selected that is designed for the corresponding room size. The performance of the device must therefore be adapted to the size of the apartment. Also ensure low energy consumption, low volume and a long service life for the filter.
