How do I get the smell of cigarette smoke out of the house on short notice?

Report as

Febreze could help, if you spray quite a bit (has to be the unscented one), let it sit for half an hour, then open all windows to air out. Or if you live in a closed apartment, A/C on high.
Additional help to mask the smell is cooking something with a potent smell, like garlic or onions.

If you want to get rid of cigarette smoke open all your windows. Try to let the house air out for a few hours. Once you close the windows spray the house down with spray.

Sadly you can't

Over the long term, you can repaint all the walls/ ceilings and change out carpets but short term,, nothing.

Someone who does not smoke can tell in an instant if someone was smoking in a room - the smoke gets into the fibers of upholstery, drapes, carpet , paint etc.

Quit smoking in the house!
I smoke outside not only because I have a child but also because I hate the smell it leaves.
