Simple Ways to Remove Smoke Odor from Car
"Smoke isn't a timid creature. Its scent has an incredible ability to find its way into our clothes, carpets, and furnishings."
Smoke isn't a timid creature. Its scent has an incredible ability to find its way into our clothes, carpets, and furnishings.
Despite this, most people think that it has one of the most terrible fragrances, comparable odors like petrol and sulfur. With no doubt, its scent also doesn’t go easily.
So here are some basic ways to remove the smoke odor from the car:
Remove the culprit
Remove any traces of cigarette residue or ash from your vehicle. That's correct, clean out your car, even the contents of your ashtray.
Spray your ashtray with a multi-surface cleaner and place it outside your car.
Recirculate the air
Spray freshener on the soft parts in your car, particularly the seats and seatbacks, to help remove the smoke odor.
Then, open all of your car's doors and turn the vents to "recirculate." Allow at least an hour for the air to circulate throughout the system.
Sprinkle some baking soda
Baking soda is an excellent odor absorber. Begin by sprinkling it on all of your car's soft spots (even between the seats and on the interior side of the roof).
You might feel a little like you're vandalizing your own car here but go with it. Allow the baking soda to rest for 36 hours before vacuuming it up.
Because baking soda tends to adhere to your seats, you'll probably need to vacuum repeatedly.
Replace your in-cabin air filter
If you've never changed your air filter, you'll be surprised at how much dirt, dust, and odor it collects within.
To replace it, first, remove everything from your glove box, then slide the glovebox off its pivots to completely remove it.
You shouldn't need any tools for this on most car models. Remove the smoke-saturated air filter and replace it with a new one. It's really that simple.
