thats a myth

halfords do a peach flavour tobacco odour remover for about a fiver.

Keep the windows open as much as possible, dont waste your Money on cover up smells, because that;s all they are!
It might take a week or so but it will go.

Smoke a cigar in there that will get rid of the smell of stale cigarettes, fresh smoke is so much better for you than that dried in rubbish

Google it. serious lol

Charcoal Sprays mask odors, but charcoal absorbs and eliminates them. … Charcoal Sprays mask odors, but charcoal absorbs and eliminates them. What makes charcoal an effective deodorizer and odor neutralizer is that it has a very broad surface area. A single gram of activated charcoal has a total surface area of 500 square meters, which is a little under the length of five football fields laid end to end. Charcoal is also cheap, and is readily available from supermarkets or farmer's markets. To use charcoal to deodorize your car, follow these steps: [LIST][*]Place a few damp saucers on the dashboard, the seats, and the floor of the car.[*]Add a small amount of dampened activated carbon or wood charcoal on the saucers.[*]Leave the saucers and the charcoal inside the car for at least 12 hours.[/LIST]The damp charcoal will absorb much of the cigarette odor, without leaving any odd smell. The longer you leave the charcoal inside the car, the better it absorbs the cigarette smells. With a charcoal treatment, you can get that new car smell you get the day you bought your car.

yes its used for purification and filtration
you can use it in the bathroom and also if you are rooting plants put it in the water and another is to keep your books mold free by placing a bit at the back of the book shelf.
It also makes a good room humidifier if placed in a can with holes in it.
