Best odor killer?

My partner and I share an office, and he smokes cigarettes, which slays me. Instead of the wonderful aged bouquet brought on by the enjoyment of cigars, I'm stuck with the tongue killing, nose poisoning aroma of his cigs. The odor is just as bad, whether they are lit, or whether it's the saturated smell left behind. I have bought "odor-eater" candles, the "smoke-sucking" ashtray, and have even gone so far as to purchase the "room refresher" system from Cintas (the same folks who sanitize public rest rooms.)

All for nothing...

Does anyone have any remedies or products that work to kill the dreaded Marlboro Lights Menthol?

I stopped smoking cigarettes when I realized how many more boxes of cigars I could buy.

No Big Paintbrush, no problem with the word "kill." I do a lot of shtick around here, and it was just another one of my feeble pseudo-Vaudevillian attempts at humor.

hmmm, its nice to hear thir complaint from a cigar smoker. I am used to being told in bars, pool halls, resturants, etc. that allow smoking to put out my cigar, it makes too much smoke, and that only ciggarettes are allowed - no pipes or cigars. I never could understand that at all; I used to smoke cigarettes, mainly I got into it because you can smoke a cigarette in a few minutes, so it was easier to fit in my schedule, but I always thought cigar or pipe smoke was much more pleasant than cigarrette smoke.

And this comes from a guy from "Fishkill"

Bloofington, didn't the good folks from PETA try and get the name of your town changed awhile back?

There are many ways to get rid of the smell.
Here are a few:

The hudson Valley was charted by very cranky cartographers apparently. Bunch of explorers sitting on rocks getting po'd about having to write with quill pens.

Around here we have:
Cats-kill
Fish-kill
Val-kill
Bush-kill
Beaver-kill
Basha-kill
I'm sure there are a few others I can't remember right now. Lotta violence for such a scenic place.

Wallkill, Peekskill, Plattekill, The Arthur Kill in Staten Island, the list goes on and on. The name change was first proposed decades ago, before PETA was even on the map if I'm not mistaken. PETA also tried it about ten years ago, and just recently revived their request.

What a bunch of maroons. Hypocritical maroons at that. And I agree with Macallan. My Ionic Breeze from The Sharper Image is great. They cost a lot but use very little electricity, and if you buy two, the second one is half price.

Glad to hear you enjoy your Ionic. Consumer Reports killed the Sharper Image Ionic in their reviews, stating it produced almost zero results. (Big-time lawsuit followed, Sharper Image lost.)

Does it eliminate odors well? (I'm wallowing in stink as I type this.)

I don't feel right smoking my cigars in the same office and tell him not to smoke, lol.

As for the trees, I'm looking into buying my own forest.

Yeah, I heard about the Consumer Reports thing. I don't understand it, and I didn't hear about the lawsuit until now. They're entitled to stand by whatever results they obtained, but I think it works, and so do a lot of other people. It's been in my den for four years, and you'd never know how many cigars I've smoked down here, or other things I've smoked. No smell emanating from the Burmese Python tank either, although I am a stickler for keeping things clean. I'm The Second Coming . . .

Try using "Oust". It does a good job of covering odors. There are no smokers in our office, but my father does have a flatuence problem and I keep Oust in multiple places around the office. The Oust does have an "odor" of it's own and my father cries that it chokes him up and that I should STOP. I tell him that when he stops what he is doing, I will stop spraying the oust!

Ok, thanks for the "Oust" idea. With a methane problem like you described, it's probably best that there are no smokers there...
