If your a smoker, you probably smell like cigarette smoke from time to time. Here are a few ways you can get rid of that smell.
Yeah, you knew this was coming, didn’t you? I’m not here to judge, but it’s a fact: If you stop smoking, you won’t smell like smoke!
Now, for those of you who don’t wish to quit, or are currently working on it, here are some easy ways to snuff the smell of smoke.
Use Hand Sanitizer/Wash Your Hands
After smoking, the smell is not only in your mouth, but on your hands. Washing your hands thoroughly will get rid of the smell, or for a quicker method, use hand sanitizer. With this method, you’re killing two birds with one stone; your hands are clean and you don’t smell like smoke!
This one is pretty self explanatory. The smell of the gum will overpower the smell of smoke and viola! No more stinky breath. Mint gum, such as Trident white, tends to work the best because it also cleans your mouth while you chew.
Swash Water Around In Your Mouth
After smoking, swashing water around in your mouth will not kill the smell, but reduce it drastically. It is best to use this one directly after smoking; if you wait to long, the smell “settles” and it won’t swash off so easily.
If you have access to mouthwash, use that instead!
If You “Short” Cigarettes, Don’t Carry Your Pack On You
When you short a cigarette (meaning you put it out early in order to smoke the other half later), the tobacco resin in the cigarette gives off a strong smell. Not carrying your shorted cigarette around with you is the only way to get rid of the smell.
There you have it! These methods are meant to be used when out and about, at work, school, etc. Other methods, such as washing your cloths, taking a shower, are obviously not possible during the daily grind.
