Get Rid of the Smell of Smoke From a House

Get Rid of the Smell of Smoke From a House

If you want to get rid of an unpleasant smell of smoke from your house, it’s a good option to light some sticks of incense. Incense has been used for years as a natural odour-eater and is therefore very suitable for masking and neutralising the smell of smoke.

The amount of incense that can be used depends on the extent to which a room is affected by the smell of smoke. In a room with a strong smoke smell, incense is probably not a complete solution, but in many other cases incense it can be a very good solution for removing the smell of smoke from your home.


The smell of smoke can also be removed by means of vinegar. Vinegar is a very strong substance that is able to absorb unpleasant smells and odours. The use of vinegar is also certainly applicable in situations in which there has been a lot of smoking in rooms and where the smell of smoke is therefore already quite penetrating.

It is wise to place a few bowls of vinegar in different places in the room in order to remove the smell of smoke evenly. Regularly refresh the vinegar bowls and keep airing the room well. If you combine this method with thorough cleaning of the furniture and thorough washing of the upholstery, possibly also with diluted vinegar, it is possible to make a room, house or car completely free of the smell of smoke.


Coffee can also be used to remove an unpleasant smell of smoke, as coffee is also a natural odour-eater. Place trays with coffee throughout the room and again make sure that the room is aired well. Distribute the trays well over the surface and be patient. It is of course, important that you use ground coffee for this method, because grinding coffee ensures that the smell of the coffee is released better and therefore able to mask the smell of smoke.

Air Freshener

Finally, it is advisable to fit an electric air freshener in rooms, houses or cars where there is a lot of smoking. Air fresheners are available in all shapes and sizes, but the electric version is by far the most suitable for removing the smell of smoke.
