Cigars 101

Smoking in the house

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Q. My wife doesn’t appreciate me smoking cigars in the house. Is there a smokeless ashtray or any other smoke sucking machine to buy? The winter is starting to set-in and I need to smoke & enjoy my “gars” in the comforts of my home and not freeze outside or in the garage. Any suggestions?

A. The only solution I’ve found that really kills the smoke odor are the better quality air purifiers that produce safe levels of ozone. Csonka makes some of the best in various models, depending on the size of your room, and they really stand behind their products. Personal experience has also proven that if left on overnight, not just while you’re smoking, they do an even better job. To my chagrin, my wife smokes cigarettes in the house and I usually burn some incense in addition to running the air purifier just to kill that acrid cigarette odor. For cigars, you don’t want to interrupt their wonderful, natural aroma. You can also go for the Living Air models advertised on the radio, but they will set you back much more than the Csonkas.
