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

      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

        I was thinking Febreeze too. Maybe you could contact a company that does carpet cleaning and see if they can do upholstery as well. I guess its worth a try! Good luck!

        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!
