How to Remove Smoke Odor From Appliances

The smell of smoke is one of the most difficult odors to eliminate. Even after wiping down counters, vacuuming rugs and spraying air fresheners, the smell can remain because smoke can seep into walls, fabrics, furniture and appliances. Removing smoke odor from appliances can be done using common household items such as hydrogen peroxide, salt and vinegar. Vinegar and hydrogen peroxide are both cleansing agents, as well as natural deodorizers with the ability to cut through strong odors.

Step 1

Pour one gallon of water into a large bucket, and add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar, and 2 tbsp. each of hydrogen peroxide and salt. Stir the mixture with a large stir stick for approximately three minutes.

Step 2

Soak the wash rag into the vinegar cleaning solution, and then wring out any excess liquid.

Step 3

Wipe down the exterior and interior (if it is easily accessible) of all appliances using the vinegar cleaning solution. Rinse the rag with warm water and wring out after cleaning each appliance so as not to contaminate the cleaning solution with dirt that was lifted from the previous appliance.

Step 4

Clean your appliances twice daily for three weeks using this method, or until the odor of smoke completely disappears.
