Removing Smoke Smell from Clothing

I have a family that had a fire and the smoke smell in the clothing will not come out. What can they use to get the smell out?

Try mixing together 4 to 6 tablespoons trisodium phosphate (from a paint store), 1 cup chlorine bleach, and 1 gallon of water. Dip clothing in this then rinse in clean water. If this doesn't work you may need a smoke restorer. Look in the yellow pages under "Fire Damage Restoration". They will use an ozone treatment. This can be very expensive though. It may be cheaper to just buy new clothes. (08/28/2007)

Try using white vinegar in the laundry. This will take out any residue of smoke in the clothes. (08/29/2007)

Our house burned and the company we hired to clean our household items and store them used a special room they called the "Ozone Room". It circulated the air with maybe a chemical overnight and cleaned the odor right out of our clothes, bedding, fabrics, upholstery, anything they could fit into the room. You might check into this with some of the fire restoration companies. (08/29/2007)

I use 1 of 2 things.

  1. A product called Odor Check put out by Watkins. It works like a charm.
  2. Febreze. I use it on every thing including my truck (inside).
Good luck. (08/29/2007)

There was a family in my church whose house burned and they used Tide with Febreze to wash their clothes after trying other things. They said that the Tide with Febreze seemed to work better than anything and really recommended it. You might try that. (09/07/2007)
