Help: how to remove years of smoke/cigarette smell from wood?
I really would appreciate your help with my problem: how to remove the smoke smell from my cherry wood veneer diningroom set.
We received a cherry wood/veneer diningroom set and boy, it is SOAKED with cigarette smell.
Yes, I am a non-smoker and am VERY sensitive to smoke smell. I got a headache from smelling the smoke just from cleaning/dusting off the hutch!
I've dusted it.
IÂve sprayed the area w/ Oust.
IÂve wiped down the glass (of the hutch) with Windex.
I've cleaned it w/ Murphy's soap (diluted w/ water).
I've used Pledge on it.
I've aired it out for ~2weeks.
I've put charcoal in the drawers.
IÂve put little bowls of vinegar in the hutch.
IÂve called furniture restoration places and they told me they have trouble w/ removing odors from wood. They suggested calling cleaners that handle clean-ups after fires, etc.
Anyone have any success with removing cigarette smell?
Thank you very much,
