What is the best way to remove that unmistakable smell of cigarette smoke from a home?


You have to paint all surfaces- walls and ceilings, scrub fixtures with Greased Lightning ( sold at Lowes), Rugs will need to be shampooed, curtains and all fabric washed with a good laundry detergent, used a fradrant fabric softner, and dryer sheets. Open windows and place air freshners around and open windows.... then maybe... it will be better. Good Luck!
