Cigar Smoke & Custom Clothing Care

Brothers and Sisters of the Leaf (cigar-smokers) tend to be fly and wear their best clothing. Some of that clothing is ours. The question always arises about keeping your custom made garments from absorbing cigar smoke. We have a few tips.

  • Baking soda is your friend. Lightly sprinkle baking soda on the affected clothing and let it sit for 24-48 hours. The baking soda will absorb the smoke particles and help to neutralize the odor. Then, use your clothing vacuum to pick up the baking soda and dry clean and wash the clothing as usual.
  • Vinegar will help to remove the odor from washable clothing and leave your clothes smelling fresh. Use it in your rinse cycle.

In addition to these methods, you can also take steps to prevent cigar smoke from setting in on your clothing in the first place. Here are a few tips:

  • If you must smoke, try to do it outside or in a well-ventilated area.
  • Wear clothes that are made of tightly-woven fabrics. These fabrics will be less likely to absorb the smoke particles.
  • Hang your clothes up to air out after you smoke. This will help to remove any smoke particles that may have already settled.

By following these tips, you can help to keep your clothes free from the smell of cigar smoke.
