    Anyone here know how to get the smell of cigarette smoke out of a gi? My dorm is small so the smell of cigs tends to sink into everything (usually airs out after a few days) but in the event I need to get on the mat soon after a smoke... any tips? The last thing I want is my sensei kicking my butt if he smells it.

    So by cigarettes you mean pot? Or regular cigs ? IMO nothing can mask the horrible smell of cigarette or pot from clothes. Maybe Febreez but you will smell like a girl lol

    Regular cigs! I can't stand pot, know some people that went that road and don't plan on ending up how they did.

    Considering I am a girl I wouldn't mind smelling like one lol.

    Hahahaha so Febreez it is ;). But in all seriousness, that smell is hard to get rid of. You could put your gi in a big zip lock type bag right after you washed it and it's dry. Will keep the cig smell away.

    You can buy scent killer spray. It's meant for hunting clothes but it would work on anything really.

    Really though you should quit smoking. If you're going to smoke do it outside. Cigarette smoke smells awful & stains everything. At least switch to vaping.

    Oh I do it outside. That's the only place we CAN do it on campus. The smell just happens to follow me back in.

    I actually considered vaping, but there was a story on the news not too long ago, this guy's vape liquid or whatever it was exploded and he got third degree burns. I guess it could happen with a lighter too but I've never seen a story on the news about THOSE exploding.

    But if he switches to vaping he'll be smelling like confectionery all day long.. No, TS, just switch to dipping. You'll be dead of throat cancer in four years but it'll be worth it no to smell... Plus you might be able to convince your coach to put a spit bucket in the corner by the mat and you won't have to go outside when it's cold out...

    Convince my coach? Ha, the point is to not smell of smoke so he won't find out! I won't have to worry about throat cancer, I'd have to worry about the worst choke hold of my life!

    Just curious but how would I chew and do rigorous activity at the same time? Pretty sure that's a choking hazard lol.

    No offence, but you should really smoke your cigarettes outside. For your own health' sake, and for the sake of your walls, clothes, hair, etc.

    Oh yeah, I do. We can only smoke outside on campus. I'd imagine it'd be a real pain for the fire department to go out to a dorm just because the smoke from someone's cig set off an alarm.

    I guess you deserve a serious answer after all that, though.

    Look, I'm only a blue belt and I've only been training for about 4 years so I may not be as clued up as some of the other people here, but why the fuck would your coach kick your butt for being a cigarette smoker? Some of the people in our club smoke. That's their own fuckin business, they are paying customers who pay to train there. What they do outside of the gym is up to them.

    I could get if he would maybe try to encourage you to quit or something, but a coach as controlling as you're making it sound doesn't sound very good lad.
