The smell of tobacco smoke is especially unpleasant for those who do not smoke themselves. Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that the smell of tobacco smoke is also present in our house and it is not so easy to get rid of it. How to fight it? What are the most effective ways? We suggest.
Smoking is becoming more and more ‘off limits’ in terms of social relations. Fewer and fewer people admit to being amateurs of cigarettes, if they need nicotine, they reach for electronic cigarettes or go out to smoke outside. Usually there is no need to do it indoors, but even today, unfortunately, there are exceptions
What can be done so that the interior does not smell of smoke? First of all, you can not let it settle in it permanently. The point is that smoking a cigarette inside the house was actually an incidental event. After each such story, the room must be properly ventilated. Not only opening a window, but also using an electric fan can help
In practice, the range of measures used to combat tobacco smoke largely depends on the intensity of the odor inside the apartment. If you smoke for a long time or frequently, it will certainly be more difficult to remove the unpleasant smell. On the other hand, tolerance is an individual matter – not everyone will find the smell equally unpleasant. However, it is always a good idea to start with natural remedies; you may be able to get rid of the problem without using expensive or harmful chemicals.
Cigarette smoke is strongly noticeable and can float around the apartment for a long time, even after one lighting, but fortunately there are also stronger odorants. We are talking not only about various chemical substances created artificially, but also about natural ways. A good idea is to use a scented candle or light incense – its smoke will have a soothing effect and bring to mind pleasant memories of jasmine or lavender in bloom. The last plant is also effective in the form of pendants with prepared dryness
It is also worth betting on air humidifiers with essential oils. Those who have a bio-fireplace, can use it, smelling the interior with fragrant oils. An additional advantage of this approach is that you can choose your favorite scent – for example tea tree. Only a few drops are enough for a pleasant scent to start emanating. In addition, we will not pay much for it, because a bottle of oil will suffice for a long time
There are natural substances that can absorb the unpleasant smell of cigarette smoke. For small rooms, but also in the car, a good idea is to hang a few sachets of ground coffee with a strong aroma. Its smell will certainly be pleasant and stimulating. Sometimes charcoal or baking soda are used in a similar way – they should also help.
With prolonged and heavy smoking in the apartment, it is very difficult to remove the smell of cigarettes from it later. Curtains, drapes, bedspreads and pillowcases are soaked in the smell of smoke. Wash them or at least use a vacuum cleaner with a washing function. In addition to washing liquid or powder, add a few slices of lemon, grapefruit or orange to enhance the freshness effect. These citrus fruits have the effect of neutralizing the smell of cigarette smoke.
