Just curious, I smell cigarette smoke from time to time in my home, and yet I do not, nor have I ever smoked. Should I talk to my Dr. about this?

I have heard of health conditions where people can taste or smell something that isn't there and it would do no harm to tell your doctor.

You could try taking a look at, which is a very good site with a bias towards things medical.

What you are smelling could be real due to the way your home is ventilated. Have you asked others if they can detect the smell?

There have been cases of strange smells, sounds or events and eventually it transpires some folk have had people lodging with them in basements or attics without them knowing.
There have been several instances where terraced or row houses have been built with a common or interconnecting attics and smells from one house is soon shared with the others. Sometimes I have read where a neighbour was popping next door to borrow some sugar, flour, money and suchlike without waiting for an invitation...

A large house nearby used to be owned by a doctor. After the doctor died the local authority bought the house and grounds for use as a Registry Office and wedding venue. The caretaker told me several times the house was haunted by a pipe-smoking ghost as late in the evening long after everyone had gone, he could always smell pipe smoke in a certain place on the staircase - but nowhere else. Smoking wasn't allowed in the building and no one who worked there (all female apart from him) smoked.

How to get rid of cigarette smell in car vents

Use air fresheners to eliminate smoke smell. After cleaning out the car, raid your pantry for odor eliminators. Dryer sheets placed under seats will help freshen the air. Also consider putting an open box of baking soda or a bowl of kitty litter in the car to absorb cigarette smell

Getting a cigarette smell coming out of the air vents. Just bought the car and didn't notice a smell before.

getting rid of cigarette smell is nigh on impossible,without taking down the whole dash/heater matrix/a/c system.and steam cleaning the whole could try an aerosol spray(from a dealer)that you spray into the outside air vent,but that only maskes it,unless it is very strong.(the nicotine sticks to everything)smoking should be banned in cars......same as cellphones.....

I have a Honda accord 95 and it smells like something odd. When I bought it, the seller trashed some cigarette packages to make it seem like it smelled like it was a smoker's car (despite knowing he...

My car had odd smells like that also some funky looking stains on the seats, dash and headliner. I used a product called SimpleGreen in just the spray bottle and a damp washcloth and scrubbed the interior down make sure to keep the windows rolled down its pretty strong, it will get rid of the smoke smell but will replace it with the cleaner smell for a week or so, but after that I didn't have any of odors come back.

Cigarette smell in cars

professional cleaning sounds like your best deal unfortunatley with what you are describing it will cost @$400 to $500 to clean. If you decided to quit smoking it might take you about month and a half of your cig money to pay for the cleaning

No filter but Oust works pretty good if you spray it into the passenger side floor to have the a/c return **** it up and back through the vents.
