Many of us have promised ourselves (with or without success) to quit smoking, either as a goal for the new year or as an initiative to lead a healthier life. Quitting smoking is not easy, and the smell of smoke that permeates homes, especially after a winter of smoking indoors, is very unpleasant.
Whether you've quit smoking for good or want to get rid of the bad odors in your home, there's no better time to freshen up your home than when summer arrives and you can open the windows to let the air in.
If you've tried to remove cigarette odors from a room in your home without success, don't worry: Protech Allergies has selected for you a set of solutions to learn how to remove cigarette and smoke odors (whether from tobacco or cooking) in minutes, any time of the year.
To avoid having to remove the smell of cigarettes from the rooms in your home, take preventive measures by airing out the house and always throwing away the cigarette butts and ashes left in the ashtrays, because, even if we don't realize it, they still give off a bad smell. Discover all our tips to eliminate cigarette odors from the air.
How to eliminate cigarette odor before it permeates the environment?
Our first 3 tips are about prevention: prevent the smell from developing. If you have no particular desire to quit smoking, these tips are the first steps in preventing cigarette odor from developing in a room.

Ventilatethe room after smoking.
Open windows to allow for a draft and fresh air circulation.
Clean the ashes regularly.
Regularly removing ashes and cigarette butts from ashtrays will prevent them from continuing to give off a bad odor.
As mentioned earlier, these solutions are easy to implement and will quickly dissipate cigarette odors.
How do you get rid of a cigarette smell that is already permeating the atmosphere?
If the smell of cigarettes is still present in your home and on your furniture, don't despair: after a long period of smoking indoors, or after your food has been burned, the smoke and smell can take some time to dissipate. There are many strategies for learning how to permanently remove the smell of cigarettes from a room. Here are 7 tips to get rid of the smell for good:
1.Use an odor eliminator. Instead of masking the smell, these products can help eliminate it for good, and they are especially effective for furniture. For best results, always air out the room before and after applying the product and read the instructions on the package.
2.Install an air purifier. Air cleaners help remove pollutants from the air. They are an excellent way to remove cigarette odors as well as dust and dirt.
3.Clean carpets. Carpets tend to absorb odors, so it's important to consider this method if you have carpeted rooms in your home. You can choose a product specifically designed to clean carpets or hire a professional service. Be sure to follow the step-by-step instructions in the manual.
4.Clean windows and mirrors. To eliminate the smell of cigarettes, you should also clean the windows and mirrors in your home, as they attract a lot of smoke.
5. Wash fabrics in the room. Smoke stays on fabrics, such as curtains or bedspreads, and is very unpleasant when we come in contact with them. Washing them by hand or machine with a quality soap is an excellent way to remove smoke. You can also spray the Protech Allergy Spray made with eucalyptus to replace the smell.
You can also add a dose of Protech Allergies detergent detergent to your wash: the fabrics are pleasantly scented with eucalyptus and lemongrass. Remember to read the fabric label to check washing instructions; many, but not all, fabrics can be machine washed.
6.Charcoal. Charcoal is an inexpensive way to learn how to remove cigarette odors. You can leave it on a firm surface somewhere in your home or hang it in small bags to attract the cigarette smell.
7. Upholster furniture. If you don't intend to smoke indoors again and have the extra budget to make a small investment, reupholstering your furniture will automatically remove smoke odors trapped in the fabrics.
8. Use an air freshener. You can buy one or make one at home. Check out this article for more information.
Now you know how to remove cigarette smell from the air. You'll probably find that airing out your home is easy. Try our tips!
Ideally, you should smoke on your balcony or patio. If that's not possible, it's best to smoke near a window and then ventilate well so the smoke dissipates. Clean windows and mirrors regularly, as they attract cigarette smoke. Wash bedspreads, quilts, tablecloths and curtains, as the smell is often trapped in the fibres. Use a good quality soap such as Protech Allergy Detergent detergent and follow the instructions on the fabric labels.
