Cigarette smell

Hi, can anyone recommend one of those bomb things for getting rid of cigarette smells. I've just been given a company car and it stinks of fags, I've only had the car since this evening and it's doing my box in already. I need to get rid of the smell lively.
Any tips tricks and advise will be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Si

Been illegal to smoke in company cars for years now. Ask for another car.
Most those smoke bombs just mask the smell for a while

Only a deep interior clean would get rid of the smell of smoke, even then its nearly impossible to get rid of fully as it ruins the fabric and plastics!
Odour bombs/ interior fragrances merely mask the smell for a few weeks at best

My suggestion, have a full interior shampoo/deep clean done on it, followed by Ozone treatment, which actually removes odours (not mask them)

What is this you speak of? This sounds like wizardry. I'll look into it. Thanks for the advise guys.

My car smelt of smoke, took two massive cleans to get ride of it. You need to "suck" out all the old dirty water when cleaning, head lining and sun visors too.

ask to get it professionally cleaned if you can - Needs to be deep cleaned - , wet vac , steam and ozone treated to start to get rid of the smell

A very good clean like what been suggested and then get a Clobberizer in there, find them on amazon for about £25, they are the same as odor rescue which are no longer available, used quite a few of these now and work very well

Smoke bombs are useless for cig smells, the only thing I've seen work is a scent machine. It looks like another club smoke machine, open all the vents, put on a towel and block the window the plug runs from and fire it up, the car will fill with smoke visible through the windows, leave for thirty mins and the smoke permeates the seats down the air con vents and clears the smell. Make sure to replace the air filters as well.
