ODORx Smoke Wash. Fiber cleaner and deodorant. Effective on upholstery, clothing, linens, blankets, draperies and more. Can be used as a laundry cleaning booster to deodorize soot and smoke odors in washable fabrics. Simply add to washer and launder.
Improper cleaning of garments that have been exposed to odors, especially smoke odor, can cause the odor to permanently settle onto the fibers. Smoke Wash is a highly concentrated smoke odor counteractant and detergent booster specially formulated to remove fire related smoke residues and odors from machine-washable items. The product’s specialty surfactants and solvent system attack greasy, oily soils that have coated the fibers. The product is fully water soluble. The essential oils help to counteract the odor.
Smoke Wash can be used by itself in the laundry cycle but may also be added to water-based wall and fabric cleaning solutions.

For best results in removing smoke odor and stains:
- Soak overnight in a solution of general purpose laundry detergent, Degrease-All and Smoke Wash. Use 8 ounces Degrease-All and 1 ounce Smoke Wash per 5 gallons cold water (240 mL Degrease-All and 30 mL Smoke Wash per 19 L water).
- Pre-spot stains with a solution of Degrease-All that has been diluted at 32 ounces Degrease-All with 96 ounces water (250 mL / L). Add 1 cup (8 ounces / 240 mL) of Degrease-All to the wash cycle.
- Launder normally.
Protein-related smoke. The odor derived from burning protein (e.g. meat, fish, beans) is unusually objectionable and becomes more so as the residue is exposed to heat and moisture. To improve removal of protein smoke from LAUNDERABLE garments:
1) Run a test load with Smoke Wash.
2) If odors persist, substitute Double-O Protein Odor Counteractant.
For use on upholstered furniture: Smoke Wash can be used with a foam cleaning technique on upholstered furniture or as a textile preconditioner. This technique uses only foam generated from agitating a solution of Smoke Wash. The foam loosens the soil on the fiber but does not saturate the fiber. This method can prevent the soot from settling onto the fiber and permanently attaching to the fiber.
- To prepare a solution for this method, add 2 ounces of Smoke Wash to a bucket containing one gallon of warm water (16 mL / L)
- Agitate the solution with brush or natural sponge to generate foam.
- Wet vacuum to remove dry soil from upholstery.
- Work from one small section of the upholstered piece to another. Apply foam to a small area with a natural sponge or a soft brush.
- Remove excess foam with clean white terry cloth towels or by using a wet vacuum.
- Proceeding to the next area.
