How to Remove Cigarette Smell from Wedding Invitations

Looking to get rid of the cigarette smell on your Etsy wedding invitations? Check out these tips using baking soda and more to deodorize them!

Hey there! So, you’ve received your wedding invitations and envelopes from Etsy, but unfortunately they smell like cigarette smoke. Not exactly the first impression you want to make on your guests, right? Don’t worry, I’ve got some tips on how to get rid of that pesky odor so your beautiful invites can shine without the stench.

First off, let’s tackle this issue head-on with a simple but effective solution: baking soda. Here’s how you can use it to deodorize your wedding invitations:

1. Fill a shallow dish with baking soda.
2. Place your invitations on top of the baking soda in a single layer.
3. Leave the invitations to sit for at least 24 hours, allowing the baking soda to absorb the cigarette smell.
4. After 24 hours, gently shake off any excess baking soda from the invitations.
5. Give the invitations a quick wipe down with a soft cloth to remove any remaining residue.
6. Voila! Your wedding invitations should now be free from that unpleasant cigarette smell.

If the baking soda method doesn’t completely eliminate the odor, you can also try placing the invitations in a sealed container with some activated charcoal or coffee grounds. Both of these substances are known for their odor-absorbing properties and may help to further neutralize the cigarette smell.

Don’t forget to give the envelopes some attention too – you can use the same methods mentioned above to deodorize them as well.

Extra Q&A:
– Can I use scented sprays or perfumes to mask the cigarette smell? While it may temporarily cover up the odor, it’s best to eliminate it completely with the methods mentioned above.
– How far in advance should I deodorize my wedding invitations? It’s best to start the process as soon as possible to allow enough time for the odor to dissipate before sending them out to your guests.

Now that you know how to banish that cigarette smell from your wedding invitations, go ahead and get started! Your guests will thank you for the fresh-smelling invites, and you can rest easy knowing that every detail of your special day is just perfect.
