Removing Smoke Smell and Other Odors From Memory Foam Mattress

Having odors such as those from cigarettes or fire can really be a disheartening experience, especially if you just bought the visco foam mattress from an acquaintance who was a heavy smoker. So now that you have the memory foam mattress that smells like a campfire, how do you get rid of the awful smoke scent?
Some suggestions:

- Simply sprinkle the memory foam mattress with powdered baking soda and let it sit for about a day. Then vacuum the baking soda powder off of the visco mattress, flip it then repeat the process.
- Mix 16 oz. of hydrogen peroxide with 3 tablespoons of baking soda in a spray bottle. Then spraying the areas where smoke odors, or stains even, exist. Also, the mixture could potentially bubble up a bit.
- Febreeze? In regards to using Febreeze, through our research, we have found that even though Febreeze seems to work at first, the odors tend to return.

Some other tips we have received are:
- Spraying a baking soda, vinegar and hydrogen peroxide solution on the affected memory foam mattress and letting it sit. In addition to the hydrogen peroxide and vinegar mixes, add bowls of vinegar in the room.
- Citrus fabric deodorizers with grapefruit seed extract.
- Dusting the mattress with carpet deodorizer, like the baking soda method, letting it sit for a day, then vacuuming the deodorizer off of the memory mattress.

In addition to the aforementioned suggestions, try setting the memory foam mattress out in the sun in order to dry out. We understand that this is quite an inconvenient thing to do, but effective. This way you can spray the mattress outdoors and let the sun dry it out. Then proceed to take the mattress indoors, spread the baking soda and leave it on top for a day.
Once deodorization has been achieved, we recommend the placement of dryer/fabric softener sheets beneath the bed sheets in order to keep the memory foam mattress smelling fresh.
