I recently bought a cutie pie Teddy bear from a woman who was a smoker.   Any clue how one would get the smell out of fur?   She had sprayed it with a Fabreze-type product, but the cigarette smell is still coming through.

Esther, you might try putting the bear in a bag with some activated charcoal or soda.  Both are supposed to eliminate odors.

Thanks, SueAnn!  I'll try that!

You could also try placing the bear in front of an electric fan for a couple of days, and when the weather is warm, sunshine and fresh air (outdoors,just for a few hours) can work wonders.
