Ever rent or buy a home that was once inhabited by a cigarette smoker? Getting rid of that lingering smell can seem like a daunting task, but would you believe the most effective way to deodorize is with plants? Plants emit water vapor, which pulls in the stinky, contaminated air and turns it into plant food. The result is cleaner and happy plants, and it’s all done without the use of chemicals. The best plants are English ivy and Gerbera daisies; not only do they deodorize, they also absorb benzene, which is a chemical found in cigarette smoke.
