  • Open the windows and air it out. Spray EVERY fabric surface with Lysol and starting NOW tell them to smoke outside or in the garage.
    Anything you can wipe down do it. That is gonna be tough if they have been smoking in there for awhile unless you wash all the curtains and everything.

  • Since smoke gets in fabrics, wash everything from couch cushions to curtains and even carpets. Washing the walls helps too.

  • Start smoking outside atleast for Christmas or for your son.
    My mom does not allow any smoking inside the house so my dad goes outside and smokes.
