    My wife agrees

    If you really have to get the smoke smell out of your hair, try a shampoo with coconut; it either removes the odor producing compounds or just overpowers them.

    Ever go into a sauna a couple of days after a good smoky fire and get the smoke odor from your skin?

    I'm still trying to convince the lovely Mrs. Gonz that the smell of smoke is actually an aphrodesiac...

    Irish Spring, applied with 100 grit sandpaper works best!

    My wife has made me undress in the front yard before so as to minimize the stench from a fire...a little embarassing, to be sure...

    I use Old Spice body wash, although it takes two or more showers to get the smell out of my hair.

    I use Axe... I have a Green bottle, and a yellow bottle. The yellow bottle has sandpapery stuff in it, and feels kinda good.

    Granted, this is going back a few years, but I found the VERY BEST way to get the smoke stink out, was to have a girlfriend who was also a FF in my station...... Or at least neither of us noticed the stink anyhow.

    The place where I get my haircut has this special shampoo that helps get the smell out, I'll have to get the name of it when I go there next week. Not that I dont mind the smell lol, but I asked about it one day and it worked pretty good.

    Actually, they're large, commercial side-loading machines, the same as hospitals, hotels, etc. use.

    The gear come out relatively "fresh", considering what it was like when it went in. The washers are no worse for wear, even after hundreds and hundreds of loads.
