Whether you’re in the market for an affordable used vehicle or selling a car in Lee's Summit, smoke smell is a common problem that many people, even non-smokers, have to deal with. However, once you know how to get rid of the smoke smell in a car, you’ll feel like you’re in a new vehicle! Learn the steps to remove the smoke smell from a car below with Lee's Summit Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram.

Supplies Needed to Eliminate Smoke Smell in a Car

To start this process, you’ll want to pick up a few supplies that can be found around the house or in any grocery store in Kansas City:

  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Baking soda
  • Leather cleaner or special cleaner for leather/other upholstery
  • Fluid for wiping filters and windshields

How to Get Rid of the Smoke Smell in Cloth Upholstery

You may be familiar with the many household uses of baking soda because of its ability to neutralize odors. It’s just as useful in your garage if you want to remove the smoke smell from your car:

  1. Vacuum Interior: You’ll want to gather up any ashes or other smelly agents with your vacuum before cleaning.
  2. Sprinkle the Baking Soda: Baking soda should be spread all over your vehicle’s upholstery and carpet, so it can collect and neutralize those offensive odors.
  3. Vacuum and Repeat as Needed: After you’ve vacuumed up all the baking soda, you will probably smell (or, rather, not smell) dramatic results. Many Blue Springs residents like to repeat this process to ensure that any residual odor is completely gone.

Just like with your fridge, you can also leave baking soda inside your vehicle, another effort-free way to remove smoke smell from the car.
