Hello!

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.

Thanks!

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

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.
