Ok.. I smoke.. (I know it's nasty) and short of knitting outside in the nasty Louisiana humidity, once I complete a project and want to send it to a non smoking friend, how can I desmoke it? Handwashing and drying it then put it in a ziplock bag with baking soda packets? I don't want them having to smell my funky smoke..
I know they don't smell like smoke to me after I wash them, but was unsure as to what a non-smoker would smell. Their noses work so much better than mine! Between soap making, candle making, and smoking.. My nose is pretty shot!
Apple cider vinegar thrown in your washer with the soap is excellent at taking away odors. You can use as much or as little as you need, it's cheap and I have had it take the smell of cat urine, mildew and smoke out of things. Sometimes it can take a couple times of washing with it if the smell is really strong, but it is my laundry deodorizer of choice!
