It's the morning after a great party last night and your house reeks of this cigarette smoke, I know how to get rid of it. I'm Cyn Deer, I'm from 3's Company Too, and I'm going to show you how to remove cigarette smell from your upholstery. First of all you- there's lots of products out there right now. You can use baking soda, or you can use some of the, what they call- like a carpet powder, there's Febreze. The Febreze you get to spray right on and do nothing with it. I like the idea of using either baking soda or a little bit of a talc powder, sprinkle it on. You want to let it sit for a little bit, and then you would vacuum it off. The other thing is, you want to open your windows, air out the room, that's really what you would do best. And now we're going to just vacuum this off. And one of the benefits to using the different kinds of product is then the house smells really pretty. Whether it's the Febreze or the carpet spray, the carpet talc kind of powders, smells much better, gets rid of that horrible cigarette smell. As a reform smoker I know about that stuff, it's really bad. So have a great day, and hopefully it's smoke-free for you.
