Unfinished wood surfaces, like the inside surfaces of wood furniture , the underside of a wood table, or wooden drawers, can trap in smoke odors like a sponge. To get rid of smoke odors on unfinished wood surfaces, spray a light mist of OdoBan® Disinfectant and Odor Eliminator over these surfaces.
To get rid of the smoke residue – and tobacco smell – on your furniture you need to deep clean the upholstery : Use a commercial odor neutralizer like Febreeze or Lysol. These products can be very efficient in removing cigarette smell from upholstery .
Lightly wipe all wood surfaces with a cotton cloth dipped in a mixture of 1/4 cup oil soap (or wood cleaner ) and 1 gallon warm water; If necessary, use 0000 grade steel wool to remove tough soot residue (make sure you work in the direction of the wood grain); Wipe the furniture with a damp cloth and let it air dry.
Odors such as cigarette smoke can seep into wooden furniture , and the smell can really linger. Many people get rid of quality furniture because of this odor. Smokey odors can quickly be removed from the wooden furniture that you own and love.
If the odor remains after you air out your home, place activated charcoal or bowls of white vinegar (or even apple cider vinegar ) around the rooms to absorb odors. Replace the charcoal or vinegar every few days. Be wary of scented “odor removal” products, which may just mask the smell instead of removing it.
The best method I’ve found for deodorizing old wood furniture is to clean it with soft rags and common household ammonia cleaner (straight from the container or diluted half and half with warm water), and then rinse and air-dry it. Wear rubber gloves and work in a well-ventilated area to avoid inhaling ammonia fumes.
Neutralize smoke smell with a vinegar wash. To reduce the smoke smell in a room or vehicle, fill several small bowls with white vinegar , set them around the space, and let them sit overnight. To speed up the process, boil a potful of vinegar on the stove, letting it gently simmer for an hour or two.
Just mix water and vinegar together using a 1:1 ratio and thoroughly wipe down your piece of furniture , then allow it to air dry. Or you can also fill a spray bottle with the solution and spray it down, whichever your little heart desires. This stuff definitely works.

Soot is slightly oily and clings to most surfaces it lands on. Removing soot requires using a product that can loosen it and break it down. Vinegar is such a product and is safe for most surfaces.
