    Are you a non smoker?

    When buying second hand goods why does this question crop up, is not only the potential buyers but the sellers too, countless times ive seen "from a non smoking and pet free home"

    Does it matter that much?

    I smoke and have a dog, doesnt mean i smoke in the house or let me dog play on my xbox.

    Its Sunday im bored

    i always look for non smokerr and no pets, they normally have a nice smelling cleaner house.

    most smokers have a shady persona about them too

    The cases can smell of smoke too.

    matters on cars and property as takes ages to get the reak out even if u smoke outside,on little things like xbox etc dosent make much diffrience,a little kid with sweaty hands and sweets and drinks is alot worse

    got to agree even tho i have a dog would always like it from a smoke free home i think most people do if they have kids

    even buying things like cd,dvds etc nothing worse than them reeking of smoke obviously a smoker cannot smell thisbut non smokers defo do

    well i am a smoker doesnt mean i smoke in my house or in the car and my house smells lovely i take pride in what i have.

    Agree cars and houses are a big thing.

    Kids are more of a nightmare, id rather receive something smelling of smoke than a scratched up dvd

    Im Alergic To Dogs And Hate The Smell Of Smoke As I Now Dont

    oh and also I have a pet allergy and whether you believe it or not I can tell if someone is a pet owner as my eyes start to itch, true. I have been to the cleanest spotless homes and i can still tell pet dont mean they are dirty though

    i have sold things on here before no ones ever complained about the smell of smoke.

    If you have an allergy then it makes sense to ask.

    Well maybe as we dont smoke in the house the items smell fine.

    Ive never had a complaint.

    I can now see it annoys people though :thumbsup:

    i dont smoke and i have received stuff one in particular and it was stinking of smoke and more so as it had been parceled up for a few days! so now i always ask if it comes from smoke free home i have to watch with pets as my son is allergic to some

    you can definatly smell smoke from anything bought from a smoker(if they smoke in house)

    tho i wouldnt complain about it unless they stated from smoke free house lol

    Depends on the item I guess, if someone was buying it as a gift I doubt they wanna pass it on reeking of fags. But I'd be more peeved as the recipient receiving a gift purchased on ebay.

    if im going to be honest im not sure that many people would complain as they are probably too polite, when my kids go to stay at nana's I send thier stuff in carrier bags so i can throw em when they get back, I also get them to change thier clothes after a bath and thats immediately they get home, I cant stand it but Im not that fussed about if Im about my friends and they smoke, I even go out with them, odd I know

    Maybe if I list anything on ebay i'll include the following...

    Yes I have pets, yes I smoke. On the plus side I don't have destructive kids and don't drink so your item is guaranteed not to arrived wrecked, covered in puke, ****, or blood from when I went on a bender and beat the crap out of wifey and the kids.

    i bought a wii controller from ebay and the person obviously smoked and the controller stank for about two weeks after until it finally lost the smoke smell

    I like it,.

    I don't believe that dog owners or smokers' homes are any less clean than others. However, I used to have a catalogue courier who always delivered my La Redoute orders. Every parcel I received stank to high heavens of stale cigarettes, I think probably more because he was smoking in his car, than from his house. I smoked myself til 12 years ago, and don't mind smokers smoking in my house, but this was just unacceptable. He was such a nice guy that I couldn't say anything, but am glad that he's not my courier any more.

    i always ask if its a bed or other type of furnishings otherwise we just wash it, i dont expect folk to put the info up just because of my faults and being alergic to animals aint there fault its mine
    but smoking is there fault as its a health risk too

    bet that "stylish shisha/hooka" that sold pongs a bit : )

    Ive Bought Stuff A Few Times From What People Claim Is Smoke Free Home. But As Said Its Bs When Peeps But I Smoke Outside As Its Still Tarnishes Carrier Bags Clotehs Etc.
    The Clothes Or W/e Havent Smelt Too Bad But The Reek When You Open The Parcel Shows That I Was Lied To. Most Likely They Smoked In Their Car On Way To Post Office Iyswim
