Remove Tobacco and Smoke Odor

Remove Tobacco and Smoke Odor

Remove Tobacco and Smoke Odor

Whether in the home, vehicle, workplace or home of friends and family, everyone knows an odor they would like to have eliminated that is caused by tobacco products. Tobacco odor removal is a job that Nok-Out is strong enough to handle with ease. Nok-Out is a clear, odorless liquid, and is a safe and amazing odor destroyer for use in any area where odors occur. It is water based, mild enough to wash your hands in, is non-allergenic and non-staining. NOK-OUT quickly destroys odors caused by organic decay, tobacco smoke, fires, sweat, mold, bacteria, and fungi. Nok-Out leaves carpet, upholstery, cars, SUV’s, shoes, gym lockers, the air you breathe – you name it, smelling fresh! When everything else has failed, you can remove tobacco and smoke odor with Nok-Out!

Nok-Out is an Oxidizer

Any genuine deodorizer must come into direct contact with the source of the odor. Otherwise, it is only an air freshener. When Nok-Out comes into direct contact with the source of the odor, it oxidizes that smelly stuff, changing it into something that no longer has an odor. It can only do this, when it is in direct contact with that smelly stuff. With smoke odors, that sticky tarry stuff is likely to be on everything – curtains, carpets, walls, floors, blinds and so on. A professional treating this issue would bring a power sprayer called a ‘fogger’ that produces large quantities of vapor. The pro would spray liberally. Once the atmosphere becomes saturated, that vapor begins to condense on all surfaces, coating every single square inch of every surface in that room. This is a great way to apply! A cheaper, DIY alternative to the fogger is either a room humidifier or a common household vaporizer. They will do the same job as a fogger, but is much slower. (A vaporizer is much easier however, because you can usually set it to run overnight – when you wake up the next morning, it is done!)

The Procedures

1. To eliminate odor in a smoker’s room, add 16 ounces of Nok-Out to a gallon of water in a one-gallon vaporizer, and operate it in the room as needed (up to four hours at a time). This method works well in any area that has air borne odor problems. Nok-Out should be sprayed in the corners, cracks, baseboards, door-facings, before the humidifier is run, if the odors are persistent and old.

2. Spray the filter in your HVAC unit until it is damp. Or, just replace the filter.

3. Spray draperies, upholstered furniture with a fine mist of NOK-OUT (be sure you have tested a small corner of fabric before spraying the entire surface). The Fogmaster Jr. is a good applicator for this problem because it provides a very fine mist. You may also use a pump-up garden sprayer, or an airless paint sprayer that is clean. Use the fine spray setting. Nok-Out will evaporate at the same rate as water. Leave it to air dry.

4. Because Nok-Out is an all purpose cleaner, it has a bit of “soapiness” to it and may be used on all surfaces – floors, walls countertops. Spray, and walk away!

Closets and Clothing

5. In closets where smoking odors have collected on clothing, the clothing should be aired out, and the interior of closet sprayed with Nok-Out. Pay particular attention to corners, baseboards, and crevices of the closet where odor salts collect. Note: Always test clothing before spraying directly with full strength Nok-Out. If you have a lot of clothing, then you can wash the clothes in Nok-Out. See our “How-To” for doing laundry with Nok-Out.

Fire and Smoke Damage

This is a situation where you really need to spray everywhere, because the smoke went everywhere, and got on everything. The Fogmaster Jr is an excellent power sprayer, but there are many “foggers” out there that will work as well. An airless paint sprayer would do a good job here as well.

Whichever sprayer you use, the idea is the same – spray everywhere. The smoke went everywhere – Nok-Out also needs to go everywhere as well. Nok-Out has plenty of power to remove tobacco and smoke odor, and is not hard to apply. But it does need direct contact with ALL the smoke odor to do its job.

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!

“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!

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!

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.

Best Odor Control for carpet

Nok-Out and SNiPER are both great products that I use in my carpet cleaning biz to remove odor in carpets. It works great against pet urine odor! It doesn’t cause discoloration and always works. Sniper kills mold and removes the odor in carpets as well. Great products

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.

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!

Nok-Out Removed Old Dog Urine Odor

I have an Electrolux rug shampooer and was trying to remove old odors of dog urine in my oriental carpets. I shampooed them then put a concentration of 4-1 water to Nok-Out in the tank and went back over them. No more odor!! Worked great! Was sooo happy!

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. 😊👍⭐️

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.
