Cigarette smell in clothes... Help Please!
Okay, I am getting desperate. I was given several garbage bags of clothes for my daughter. They are very nice, mostly stain free and clothes I would normally wear anyway. The PROBLEM is that they smell like the little girl who wore them smoked like crazy. I can guess it wasn't the little girl although I feel bad for the condition of her lungs living in a house that smells that strongly of smoke. I really need a way of getting rid of the smell. I don't want my daughter to run around smelling of smoke when we don't and don't allow it in our home. I hate to throw the clothes away or give them to someone who perhaps has a less sensitive nose or doesn't mind the smoke smell. We can really use them. I have washed them in Oxiclean, detergent, vinegar, borax and used fab softner. Not all at once, but in various combinations. I may be able to bleach the white stuff, but there are many nice pairs of jeans and other clothes I hate to get rid of. Please help!
