Fire pit smell

What is a good product to get rid of the smell of fire from the fire pits out of your RV?

Had the same problem 2 weekends ago. Three wet dogs in the RV eliminated the smokey smell quickly.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Ozone generators are very bad for your health! I don't recommend this option.

If you don't mind spending a few bucks, get a couple of pounds of coffee and sprinkle it around on the floor. Close up the RV and let it stay closed for a day or so. Vacuum it up. The more coffee the better. BTW, if you use a clean vacuum bag you can still use the coffee.

Smoke

We camped with someone who thought any piece of wood they found laying around was good for the fire. He threw an old railroad tie on the fire. It was treated with creasote and OMG what a smell!

Weekly spraying of all fabric surfaces with Fabreze did the trick but it took a couple of months. Hopefully you're smoke smell is not so strong.

We have since outgrown the anachronistic need for a roaring fire.....

We discovered that when our Pug Cross eats bacon, the smell of a fire pit is a refreshing odour change.

You can also go buy a bag of charcoal lay a bunch on paper plates spread them throughout the camper when closed up and just like the fridge it will absorb the smell.

I had the same issue when I went to the Talladega races last year. Every person camped there had a wood fire! I found this at Auto Zone: Ozium spray. It took a few times but it cleared the smell completely. It doesn't take but a small one second spray in each area. You can buy it on Amazon also. Fabreze never got rid of the smell and this is what the Auto Zone guy recommended. Worked like a charm.
