How to get smoke odor out of microfiber couch?

Recommended Posts

Help! We got a sectional couch from our neighbor which is nice BUT he smokes in his house. Ewwwwww so it smells like smoke.

 

Is there any way to get out the smell or is it a lost cause?

 

I was thinking febreeze but there's only so much febreeze can do.

The sun acts like a natural bleach. When we have to take our camera bags or anything where there is a lot of smoke we will put them outside in the sun the next day. It does wonders for getting rid or the smell.

cool about the couch, but yuck about the smell! i was going to suggest baking soda, sprinkle all over then vacuum, but what type of material is it made of? if its fabric it might work, but prolly not on leather sad.gif

Mel,

whatever you do - don't take the covers off the pillows and wash them. we did that with our microfiber sectional pillows and ruined them all sad.gif

It's microfiber, the one that looks like suede but isn't. That's a great idea with baking soda! Thanks!

Good to know, I was actually going to attempt this. How did it ruin them? Were they not as soft any more?

Brilliant! Thanks! I think I may contact Haverty's too come to think of it because that's where it was purchased less than a year ago.

Thank you gals once again!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
