I rented an apartment recently. The previous tenant was a longtime smoker. It seemed like the place was haunted by her Camels. Baking soda or vinegar alone really only worked for a day or two to get rid of the smell-- even with windows open. After a search I found the Gonzo site, where they sell an odor eliminator that is basically baking soda on steroids-- a bag of volcanic crystals that soak up odor. No other chemicals, no perfumes. Best of all, within two hours of the bag being hung up there was NO cigarette smell in the air. It's fantastic stuff and I am sure it would work on any kind of odor. Extra green bonus: it's reusable. Just hang it outside in the sun for 6 hours, and it's ready to go again.

Editor's note: Gonzo is made of zeolite, and you can find out more about this amazing volcanic mineral at our Air Freshener page, and also in our Reference Guide.
