If they didn't actually smoke inside, one simple way to get rid of the smell is to open the windows and air it out. If it has actually permeated carpets, aphostery, or fabrics, a light misting with odor neutralizing Febreeze may be sufficient.

Air out the home ny opening windows and using fans. You could also buy a product called Nok-Out, which will eliminate any lingering smell in curtains, upholstery or carpet.

If the visitor was only there for a short time you can open windows and turn on fans. Ventilation is the key but other steps may need to be taken. Hopefully they were only in one or two rooms and you can clean any hard surfaces with some white vinegar mixed in water. Wipe thoroughly and wipe moisture up with clean rags. You can wipe upholstered furniture with the same solution just do not wet it - just wipe over the surface. Vinegar smell will go away quickly.

Set small bowls of vinegar around the house. Similarly, set bowls filled with kitty litter or baking soda throughout the home to help absorb the odors.

If you think it is in the carpet, you can sprinkle baking soda around and leave for a day before vacuuming.

Run AC fan continuously. Change AC filter.

By what you have written it seems the person was visiting your home for a few hours. You smelled smoke on their clothes and when they left you are still smelling cigarette smoke in your home.

I would suggest that you turn on the fans, open all your windows and door. You can buy some breeze air fresheners to sit around your home. A nice way to get rid of lingering smoke that a person left behind is to burn scented candles. This gives the room a nice fresh smell.

Now if the person was smoking in your home this is another story. N such a case you will need at least a gallon of vinegar, baking soda, clean rags, a bucket. You will need to do some deep cleaning to remove the smoke order left behind.

If you still smell the smoke on your couch where the person sat you can try using one of the scented cleaner for your couch or chair.

activated charcoal and vinegar will both neutralize the smell

you can purchase activated charcoal here: https://www.ama  2?tag=thrif06-20

you can also spray with an enzymatic cleaner

Enzymatic cleaners are really the only thing that will get rid of that smell. These cleaners use enzymes to break up the organic matter that causes the smell. "They work quickly by bio-degrading the stain, grease, oil, dirt, grime, vomit, urine, blood, coffee or food into its basic carbon, hydrogen or oxygen element, eliminating the problem. "

You can buy one here https://www.che  amp;gclsrc=aw.ds

or, if you have brown sugar, citrus peels and a lot of time on your hands, you can make your own: http://www.wiki  e-Enzyme-Cleaner
