Recently, the concept of secondhand smoke has been expanded. Even if there are no smokers around, various research results are coming out, such as the effect of secondhand smoke on furniture or wallpaper, such as sofas, carpets, etc. with the smell of cigarettes, and that secondhand smoke also makes people addicted to nicotine.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport has also introduced the ‘Amendment to the Enforcement Rules of the Passenger Vehicle Transportation Business Act’ to ban drivers from smoking in cars even when there are no passengers on city buses, intercity buses, express buses, town buses, chartered buses, and taxis From mid-December at the earliest, a fine of 100,000 won will be imposed for violations.
The best way to get rid of the smell of cigarettes is not to smoke, and the most important thing is to get rid of the smell of cigarettes in order to change a smoking place to a non-smoking place.
The substance that causes the smell of cigarettes is ‘tar’
Cigarette odor is commonly thought of as the smell of tar produced when a cigarette is burned, and the greater the amount of tar in the tobacco component, the more intense the smell. Tar is concentrated in many types of very small particles, and when it adheres to textiles such as clothes, sofas, and carpets, it does not come off easily even with shock or wind, and the smell persists.
Here are some ways to effectively get rid of the smell of cigarettes in various places that cause secondhand smoke, such as closets with cigarette-smelling clothes, bathroom smoking, used cars, and rooms where the previous owner was a smoker.
Lighting a candle is one of the best ways to get rid of odors such as cigarette smoke and bathroom odors. This is because the candle burns away odors and smoke around it. However, since there is a risk of fire, it is best to put non-combustible materials such as water or soil around the candle, and it is safest not to use it when there are children as much as possible to prevent accidents.
2. Green Tea
Tea Green tea has an excellent deodorizing effect, so if you dry green tea leaves and place them where you want to get rid of the smell, you can get rid of the odor.

5. Coffee Bean Remnants
Placing coffee grounds in an ashtray or other places is also effective in getting rid of the smell of cigarettes.
6. Odor deodorant rather than air
freshener Because the purpose of air fresheners is to give out a specific scent rather than to eliminate the smell, it is more effective to use ‘odor deodorizers and removers’ than air fresheners.
However, tobacco contains about 5,000 chemicals and 60 carcinogens, and fine particles emitted during smoking can be scattered in a very large area such as hair, clothes, sofa, carpet, etc. It is difficult to say that it is 100% free from risk.
Then, the best way to get rid of the smell of cigarettes and get rid of the dangers of secondhand smoke is supported by ‘non-smokers’ and ‘non-smoking spaces’ based on a thorough ‘smoking policy’ from the nearest surroundings and places where people stay for a long time.
