Remove Cigar Smoke Odor

Cigar Smoke Odor is Tough to Remove
Nok-Out Can Do It

Some people really enjoy a fine cigar. There is the aroma once you have unwrapped it, the rituals of preparation, lighting it, and subsequently, the enjoyment of that fine tobacco. For some people, this is a real pleasure! For non-smokers, however, that smell is atrocious and cleaning the smell away a daunting task. Nok-Out to the rescue!
Nok-Out can help you remove cigar smoke odor on any surface.

 Cigar Smoke Residue Gets EVERYWHERE

Smoke from cigars (or cigarettes, or other smoke) is deposited on everything, walls, ceiling, fan blades, cushions, carpeting, books, shelves and so on. Anything that is in the “smoking room” likely has a coating of this residue, even the smoker! And every time a cigar is smoked there, that layer of residue builds up. So if you are trying to reclaim a room in which many cigars have been smoked, know that you can be successful. Reclaiming that room will be something of a herculean effort, but you can win this battle. If you are the smoker and you intend to continue smoking, then using Nok-Out can help reduce the odor levels. Here’s how.

First be aware that Nok-Out is an oxidizer. When it comes into direct contact with some sort of smelly stuff, it ‘oxidizes’ (think – chemically changes) that stuff into something that no longer has an odor. This oxidization process takes place while it is drying. So, there are two ideas to take away from this: 1) It needs direct contact with the stinky stuff to be able to remove the odor, and 2) leave it to air dry. If you spray Nok-Out on something and then wipe it away immediately, it will not have enough time for oxidization to take place. It takes time to successfully remove cigar smoke odor, but you can do it!

Soft or Porous Surfaces

Start by spraying and upholstered furniture. It is always a good idea to test in an inconspicuous place to ensure that the fabrics are colorfast. Spray heavily enough that Nok-Out will be absorbed deep into any stuffing, for it is certain that some of the smoke particles will be there. Spray any drapes, blinds, cornice boards and so on. Allow to air dry.

Hard Surfaces

In general, for hard surfaces, the technique is to spray, wipe, spray again and walk away. You may need to ‘wipe’ rather vigorously because there may be a thick coating of smoke residue that is best removed. Spray wood or hard surface furniture directly. If it is wood, take care not to leave any puddles that might cause water damage.

Hard to Reach Areas

There are some areas of a room that may be quite difficult to reach. The inside of ductwork, for example, can have a thick coat of smoke residue that can remain an odor source long after the rest of the room has been cleaned. Ceilings are also difficult. A professional would use a machine called a ‘fogger’ that can help in those areas. These machines produce large quantities of vapor and at some point, the air becomes saturated and that vapor condenses onto every surface in the room. A fogger can be used to literally ‘paint’ the ceiling, or can be directed into the ductwork. These machines can, however, be a bit more pricey than most people are willing to pay for. But they are surely good to use! A cheaper – and slower – alternative is to use either a household vaporizer, or a room humidifier. Put a pint or so of Nok-Out into the reservoir, put it in the center of the room, turn it on and go to bed for the night. It’ll be done when you wake. See: for detailed instructions.

Christmas tree and Raggedy Ann

We have an artificial Christmas tree that’s still gorgeous but old. Putting it up always bothers my asthma and irritation from getting scratched is not pleasant. Last year I sprayed the tree and the “old tree” smell disappeared. I had purchased Sniper on Mary Hunts advice and it really took care of the basement (moldy) smell! Great! My daughters vintage dolls with cloth bodies had spots of mold or mildew, these are dolls my grandchildren play with. Oh my goodness! Sprayed the doll’s bodies and yarn hair, and the next day they all smelled great, moldy spots gone ! These dolls were over 30 years old and now look soooo good! Would recommend Sniper for other uses, too. Doggy rug smells gone! Smelly shoe odors gone. Grateful to Mary Hunts column for letting us know. 😊👍⭐️

My Mildew Stain Disappeared!

I brought in the plants for winter and when it was time to move them back outside in the spring, I had a mildew stain on the carpet. I received my Nok-Out Carpet cleaner and sprayed the stain and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned to scrub the stain it was completely gone!! Woo hoo!! Thank you, Mary Hunt, for introducing me to this wonderful product!

Cats Get Old!

Cats get old. Things happen. Nok-Out was recommended to me by a friend in another state. I Will never go to the pet store again to try any other product. Nok-Out is IT! I told my Veterinarian about it. I love how fast it arrives after ordering. I ordered three times because we are still working on issues, but at least the house doesn’t SMELL! Amazing product. THANK YOU!

Completely Eliminate a Horrible Smell

Mary Hunt introduced me to Nok-Out years ago and I am still amazed at how it can completely eliminate a horrible smell.

Yesterday I hosed some dust off a plastic laundry basket. I left it outside to dry for a bit and then returned it to the garage.

A few hours later I walked into the garage and the entire place reeked of cat pee! I did not realize that the neighborhood tom cat had come by and sprayed my basket. It was so bad that I was ready to trash it, but I thought I would try to spray it down with Sniper first. I doused it liberally and left it overnight. Ta Da! Absolutely no smell this morning!

Even after all these years, I am still amazed every time your product works on a smell as terrible as cat spray!

Thank you, Ted!

“Nok-Out Saved My New Car!”

Thank you for creating such a great product. I would and will recommend this to everyone I know. My son left raw meat in my car for 4 days and I thought that my new car was ruined, but after talking with you and using the product, I can now get in my car and the only thing that I smell is a clean, disinfected smell! Thank you for saving my new car!

Sniper Removed Old Water Odors, Mold & Mildew

I have been using Sniper in the Offshore oil industry as both a disinfectant and a deodorizer for years. It has eliminated old water smells of toilets and bathrooms not used in a year where the water sat and molded mildewed and stank. As well as being injected into our old quarters ac vents to prevent mold buildup. Always worked better than anything comparable and well worth the price.

Removed All The Feral Cat Urine

Sniper has been AMAZING. I was able to completely remove all the feral cat urine scent from the carpets, mattresses, clothing, and toys. It worked beautifully and left no smell, no fumes, and didn’t leave any discoloration. Sniper is now my cleaner of choice and I use it everywhere to clean and sanitize as well as freshen the air. I even use it in my daughter’s gym shoes and soccer bag. Thank you so much. Seriously the best product on the market.

Sniper Eliminated Our Mold Problems!

We’ve used SNiPER disinfectant for several years. It works great. It has eliminated our mold problems and, still, we use it to keep our wooden cutting boards safe.
