How do I remove the smell of cigarette smoke from stuffed animals without using too many chemicals?

Try taking the stuffed animals outside on a sunny breezy day. Or how about spraying with Febreeze and tossing in the dryer for a few minutes? (09/18/2006)

Wash them in the washing machine. Most stuffed animals come out looking and smelling fabulous! (09/19/2006)
When I quit smoking, my house smelled horrible! I wanted to clean and freshen everything up. My dd had gobs of stuffed animals. I wasn't confident enough to put them in the washer (didn't know if the eyes, bows, nose, etc. would fall off), so I put them in the dryer on permanent press and low-heat with a white T-shirt dampened with white vinegar and 3 tennis balls. I didn't want to use fabric sheets, they would hide the smell but not clean the animals. The stuffed animals came out clean, fluffy, smelling fresh and all parts intact! (09/19/2006)
Throw them in the dryer with a dryer sheet. Set on air only. (04/03/2008)
