How to Remove Soot and Smoke from your Contents
You may want to separate items made from different materials because they will clean differently. Create a mixture of vinegar and a Mr. Clean and vinegar. The vinegar will deodorize the scent while Mr. Clean removes the soot. You may need to clean the items multiple times to completely remove the soot and smoke from each piece. When it comes to clothing, you need to separate items that are reparable and items that are not reparable. The items you deem reparable need to be washed several times. With each wash, put vinegar in addition to the laundry detergent to remove the scent of smoke. The most difficult items to clean will be items such as mattresses, couches, and chairs. These items will need to be placed in a garage or carpet to air out. In addition, you will need to vacuum each item very slowly.
