Smoke Smell - Page 2

post #16 of 20
I'm intrigued by the vinegar idea - I'm assuming that the smoke residue is somehow alkaline in nature and the theory is that the acetic acid fumes would neutralize it? ...that part makes sense, the idea of acidic residue on fine cashmere makes me uneasy though

I remember attending several cigar smoker events at the Dunhill store in Beverly Hills. We would smoke cigars right next to their expensive suits. When questioned, the manager said that the cigar smell was gone from the suit fabric the next day. So if everyone would smoke cigars and not cigarettes.... Another method is to put the garment into a plastic trash bag with several fabric softener sheets for a day or so to get the smoke smell out. Andy

Surely you're joking Mr. Andy. I've been in several smokey environments with no issues: Let it hang in the breeze for a day and all is good. But just recently I went to an actual cigar lounge: sitting in heavy cigar smoke for hours. The cigar smoke has very effectively permeated the jacket to the point where simply letting it hang outside for a couple days does nothing. So you can imagine my surprise when I search my favorite forum on how to get smoke out of clothes and find Andy himself recommends I just smoke cigars. Comedy.

Nice resurrection.

Old arisocrats wear smoking jackets for a good reason.

Smoking smell, once permeated, will be very hard to remove. Especially from those hostess lounge in Asia...

The venue actually had a rack of smoking jackets already there for customer use haha. The genius of this move was lost on me at the time.
