Cigarette Smell In Work Van

My brother-in-law just got a work van that smells of cigarette smoke really bad. How can he get rid of the smell? There is no carpeting in it.

Hang a small bag made of cheesecloth, a coffee filter or other fabric full of ground coffee (unused). It absorbs odors and replaces the smell with a nice one.

Wipe all the surfaces with a strong foaming cleaner, preferably one that is ammonia based, to remove smoke residue from surfaces.

Spray any upholstery/carpet/fabric headliner with febreeze.

Replace the "bad" smell with a "good" smell.

Try an "air sponge" (sold where air fresheners are, comes in a small plastic tub).

Give it time.

I use OdoBan which I get at Sam's Club. It works on all odors and doesn't mask them. I use it for fire damaged homes and it works great. It will get any smell out and it doesn't return. It's great for litter box, too. It has a eucalyptus and wildflower smell.

Place 2 apples (sliced in half) under the seats and let them sit a week. Repeat until the smell is gone.

Try cleaning it with vinegar....once it dries the vinegar smell will disappear and you can then spray with air freshener or hang a few air freshener tree in to give it a GOOD smell.........

Does cigarette ash actually keep moths and silver fish from destroying car carpet?

Place a blooming plant uch as a hyacinth (SOME THING THAT HAS LOT OF SMELL) In the vehicle and let it do the work after you wash the window etc. It will smell clean after a day or so. The flower will leave a fresh smell by using the carbon dioxide up in the car and put out fresh oxygen.
