    I have a pair of denim jeans that I have done this to a couple of times. It does not seem to work; the pants still smell like I was at a BBQ.

    I have some yarn that was given to me. All the yarn smells so bad from cigarette smoke. Any suggestions to get rid if the odor?

      Linda,
      Try using the method that would be used for removing odors from books:
      Get a storage container, pour a generous layer of baking soda into it, set a cookie rack over the baking soda, and put the yarn on the rack. This way, the baking soda can remove the odor from the yarn without actually touching the yarn. You could also use coffee grounds instead, if you don’t mind the yarn smelling like coffee. Close the lid on the box and leave it for a day, then check the yarn. Repeat as many times as needed (with fresh baking soda each time) until the smell is gone.
