My partner has been a smoker for a while. He’s trying to quit, but it can be really difficult sometimes. There are times when he smokes in the car and it leaves that gross smell in the seats and floors. It’s one of the hardest smells to get out of anything, so I wasn’t sure what to do.

I was looking around online and came across Damage Control 911 of Orlando which stated that ozone generators are a great option to remove these smells from the car. The thing is, they can be used in the house too! I went out to get one and used it immediately after reading the cautions and stuff. Ozone is dangerous to humans, after all.

I made sure that nothing was in the car and stayed out of the way while it was running. I had to get a dryer vent and put it through the window, then used a few towels to block off the rest of the window. I let it run for about an hour and a half before turning it off since the ozone dissipates and turns back into regular breathing air.

This process takes about an hour or two, so I waited and made sure that there was no ozone left in the car. When I opened the door, there was no smoke smell anymore! I was amazed at how well it worked.
