Re: How to get rid of cigarette smell on books ?



You might try making a microchamber with
baking soda.

Take two trash cans, put books in smaller can,
put baking soda in larger can.  place smaller
can into larger can and close tightly for a
period of time.

Check every several days.  Length of time it
takes depends on extent of odor and whether you
are working on one book which can be put in
smaller trash can standing fanned open, or if
you are trying to pack books in the can.

However, the airing method also works and
perhaps faster.  The airing method can
also work with fans inside if ventilation/exhaust can
be obtained.
