Hi Laura, Oh dear! I can certainly sympathise, sometimes the air freshener just doesn’t quite rid that cigarette smell!
While it would certainly be worth freshening the vehicle with a spray, or even try to air it out a bit by leaving the doors/windows open for sometime, (I know it isn’t very pleasant in the cold weather), I would strongly recommend that you purchase Renovo’s Leather Ultra Proofer, which not only cleans, waterproofs and protects your leather upholstery with a UV inhibitor and an advanced anti-bacterial guard, effective against super-bugs such as E-coli – It is also leather scented, which should shift that cigarette smell.
Applying small amounts of the product at a time is the most effective way to use the product, and then use your lint free cloth to make small circular motions to work the product into the fibres and polish the leather up! A micro fibre cloth works best for this! You can buy packs of 10 on Amazon for a very cheap price!
If you visit the Renovo International Ltd website, you will be able to find the do’s and don’t’s tab for Leather Ultra Proofer! This will very helpful to you when applying the product to your seats!
