Do not do this, the chemicals may cause a stain themselves. Also, I don't know if I'm right on this, but wouldn't hairspray just cover up the smell rather than get rid of it, sort of like a coat of polyurethane?I find a quick spray with the hairspray will do the job for minor one-night smoke smells.
To get out that smoke smell, you need to take the clothing to a dry cleaner with a perc machine. Remember, what you are smelling is the thousands of little bits of ash on your jacket. That is dirt that must be removed.Will dry cleaning do it? Fabreeze? Any tips?
I have one of these. It is absolutely fantastic! My suits go right into the machine when I return from the cigar bar. 45 minutes later they emerge wrinkle free and smelling fresh.I'm sure the author will be along shortly to share the same link, but "A Suitable Wardrobe" reports that the Whirlpool Fabric Freshener does a great job of removing cigar smoke from fabrics.
Here in Michigan, anywhere with a printed menu allows smoking. Thus, I don't wear suits when I go out.
