How to get the smell of cigarette smoke out of a mobile home?

Anonymous asked 4 years ago

Hi, I just purchased a mobile home, the last owner must have been a heavy smoker, well according to the yellow stains on the walls were a picture once hung. And the first time I walked into it the smell was overpowering. I don’t smoke so I have no idea what to do. I tried scrubbing the walls with water & vinegar mixed..DIDN’T WORK.

The walls are a drywall with paper on top (the typical Mobile home flowery yucky prints. I want to paint it one color. So I need to know what will work, the best to get the smell out and not have the stains bleed through again.? So has anyone dealt with this type of smoke? I was thinking of Kilz, but it stinks so bad. Other say to use a dry sponge first to dlean it…Help, let me know if you come up with ideas? thanks! Someone mentioned a “dry” sponge to clean with??
