Banish Cigarette Smoke Odor

How can I get rid of the smell of cigarette smoke in my home without masking it with a flowery scent? --iVillager hcdaisy

Question:

The cheapest, and extremely effective solution: Place small bowls of white vinegar around the room. Leave the bowls filled with vinegar overnight; by the next morning, the smell should be gone.

Or (for a quick remedy), dip a cloth in vinegar and walk through the room, waving the cloth around. (Why not put a little dance music on while you're at it.)
