How can I get the smoke smell out of my pack n' play?

We were given a used pack n' play from a friend. They smoke in their house. I laid my baby in it the other day and just got overwhelmed the smell of smoke. Before she was born I used febreeze on it once a day for about two weeks. It is nice outside today, so I put it out there to see if it will help. Any other ideas?!?

  • thats one of the hardest things to get out of fabric. let it sit outside today and if its nice tomorrow let it sit outside tomorrow to. also soak it down with frebreeze and i think they make one that is for getting out smoke smells. good luck also you could try spraying it down with lysol.

  • Vinegar and water. put half and half into spray bottle and spray away. It should get rid of the smell and vinegar is a safe disenfectant as well.

  • maybe put some laundry detergent in some water and wipe it down with a cloth? Then wipe it down with a rinsed cloth.
