Ozone is what they use to re-mediate smoke damage in houses.
I know this from personal experience.

Aside from that Fe-breeze works really well too provided you don't want to do the dry cleaning.

Since that jacket is not a Gortex type waterproofed jacket the dry cleaning is a moot issue since you can just use the wash-in water proofing after the fact.

Just my .02

Put it in a room with a fry-o-later and cook up some french fries or onion rings it will over power the smoke smell....then just ride and it will air out the fryer smell..

I have no idea why this works but it does...

I belong to a club that allows cloths always smell like smoke except on the days when the kitchen is operating and the french fry smell overpowers it....

Mr Clean did it!

I just had an episode on a gortex fabric with cat pee odor. It reeked! My wife said it will never get washed out. I took the challange. First washed it with HE no scent tide and borax in our front loader washer. I got in trouble for that but once started what could she do? Took out the big reek but still could smell it up close. Soaked it in a strong vinegar solution over night in the bath tube. Washed it again but first pored "no scent" hunters soap on the spot and again used the tide.

Result: Wet I thought I could still smell it. After airing for a week, out side, I think I can use use it now. No noticable smell. But then the wife said I lost as she can still smell it. I think she is not playing fair:)

Moral to the story: I think you can wash out the smoke smell if you wash it a couple times. Use hunters scent eliminating soap along with the tide.
Good luck, KJ

How to motels get rid of smoke odors in carpets, curains, bed clothes? Might stop in nearby your locale and ask. Just a thought.
