The chemicals in commercial air fresheners can cause irritation to your skin, eyes and respiratory system and cover up odors rather than removing them. Follow these easy steps to find out how to get rid of cigarette smoke odor the cheap and eco-friendly way.

Step 1: You will need

  • white distilled vinegar
  • 2 small towels
  • 2 plastic bowls

Step 2: Get Soaking

Put one towel in each of plastic bowl and pour in white distilled vinegar until the towels are soaked. Using white distilled vinegar is safe, highly effective and very inexpensive. If you have a bigger car and really strong odors, you can use as many bowls filled with vinegar-soaked towels as you feel necessary.

Step 3: Location Is Everything

Put your plastic bowls with the vinegar-soaked towels near the ashtray and in the backseat and leave them overnight. The vinegar will absorb the cigarette odors from your car and when you remove the bowls, the smell of vinegar and the old cigarette smoke will be gone.
