This morning at a thrift shop I bought a box of Disney Princesses' dresses for $2. The dresses were all packed in a princesses box, and the box was taped shut. I had to take a chance and buy it "as is." When I got home, I carefully removed the tape and the box was not damaged from it (thank goodness!). My hard work was rewarded with a box full of stinky clothes from a smoker's home. I need a smiley holding it's nose. Anyone have any idea how to get cigarette smoke smell out of something that can not be washed? Maybe Febreeze and hang outside? Or maybe hose the dresses down with Febreeze and put them in the dryer on "fluff" using cool air? The smell is so gross and I am an ex-smoker! Now I know why eBay shoppers make such a big deal about stuff coming from a smoke free home.
