Default Tobacco Odour

Hi so I've had my blazer for about 2.5 months now and the previous owner was a smoker. There is still a very faint smoke smell in the fabric, and I'm wondering if there is a special way to get rid of it. So far I've tried steam cleaning and using a lot of febreeze.

Check with a detailing shop. I've seen a machine that they hook a hose up to a bag that covers a window and they hook up a machine ( like a vacuum) for 24 hours and that gets rid of the smell.
I've also seen a product called "Air Wick" by "Wizard" that smells like orange and is a tobacco odor neutralizer.

When I bought my Blazer I had to have it fumigated by a guy that comes to the dealer's used car lot just to do this. I don't know what he used, but he sprayed the interior and set the a/c to 'recirculate' for a few minutes. He had to do it twice andI had to keep the windows up for a day and keep the a/c the way he said, but it completely eliminated the smell.
I have heard that 'Ozium' from the auto supply works pretty good, also.

try unground coffee beans. just put a cup of them in there and leave it for a few days and then just whatever air freshner in there and it should work. i have done that but it was not for a long time smoker it was juat where a guy smoked in mine for a few days. worth a shot. i cant stand that smell
