We use the trees, but they only last a week! So we are looking to find a new one! The old owners of our Magna used to smoke in it, and the smell is still there, but only slightly..
What do you use? original.gif

Sounds like the smell is in your carpets/seats

I used no vac spray in our car and it got rid of the lovely bait smell that was in my car

I also have an ambi pur car thingy in there

I used to work at an auto shop and we sold a spray that was for cigarette smoke smell ( didnt just cover it it actually removed it)

Stick a jar of open coffee granules in your car overnight. Works a treat for cigarette stink. We use ambi pur but when it runs out we refill with eucalyptus or lavender or whatever spray we have in the house. Also febreeze antibacterial spray is great for fabric seats and Oust is awesome too - spray iron seatbelts and car seats to kill bugs

I assume you throw the coffee granules out afterwards??

We have left bi carb in the car overnight when DS1 spewed in it.  Didn't get rid of it but it did help
