Remove Smoke Smell From The Leather Sofa

Whether due to exposure to cigarette smoke or as the result of a fire, the smell of smoke is not something that you want attaching itself to your furniture. While eliminating the smell of smoke from any furniture can be a challenge, leather furniture tends to be particularly difficult to clean regardless of the situation. Fortunately, it is possible to remove the smell of smoke from your leather sofa if you are willing to apply yourself.


1. Wipe down your leather sofa with a damp (not wet) cloth. Rinse the cloth numerous times throughout the process so that you are not simply spreading the smoke smell around. Before proceeding to step two, allow your leather sofa to dry.

2. Work a very small amount of saddle soap into a new, clean, damp cloth.

3. Add a small amount of water to the cloth containing the saddle soap and work vigorously to build up a rich lather.

4. Rub the cloth into the sofa in a circular manner. Do this over the entire surface of the leather sofa. You will have to add more saddle soap and water to the cloth (or to a new cloth) to complete this step. When you have completed the process of saddle soaping the entire sofa, allow it to air dry completely.

5. Remove the dry saddle soap residue from the leather sofa using a new, dry cloth.

6. After all of the saddle soap residue has been removed, buff the entire leather sofa with an additional dry cloth. This will give the sofa a new looking shine and should complete the process of eliminating the residual smoke smell.

7. Depending on the severity of the smoke smell, you may have to repeat this process a couple times to completely eradicate the smell.
