If you smoke, live with someone who smokes, or live in a place smokers used to live, chances are you have to deal with smoke smell. Don’t put up with it any longer. ForRent.com can show you how to get rid of smoke smell in your house or apartment.

When a cigarette smell has penetrated your home, turn to vinegar to eliminate it. Use it as a cleaning solution on surfaces like a table or countertop. Cleaning some fabrics with vinegar works too. Once the smoke odor is gone, the vinegar smell will eventually fade.

Another key to get rid of smoke smell? Baking soda. This will take some time, though. Sprinkle your carpet or furniture with baking soda and allow it to settle overnight. The baking soda will absorb the smell. The next day, simply vacuum the baking soda up. If the smell persists, you may have to repeat this several times.

Don’t overlook items like drapes and curtains, which may have collected the smoke smell over the years. Remove them from the window and wash them in your washing machine.

You may even consider some odor removal products specifically designed to fight smoke smells. Just make sure you don’t get one that masks the smell. Solutions like baking soda and vinegar actually get rid of it.

With these quick fixes in mind, you should have the smoke smell gone in no time.
