Ok, so yesterday I had a small clothes drier incident that left most of my home full of thick smoke. After the initial panic, checked that the drier wasnt actually on fire,which it wasnt, I opened all the doors and windows and got rid of all the smoke. I actually thouhgt that I might get away with not telling the b/f about it when he got home but the whole place STINKS. We kept all the windows open until we went to bed last night and opened them again first thing this morning but it still smells real bad. Today Im going to steam clean my furniture,clean all the floors etc but anyone got any other ideas about how I can get rid of the smell.
Its so bad even the cats sneezing!

One of the only sensible domesticated things that I do is clean the lint filter in the drier each time I use it
The b/f reckons it was just the motor burning out, possibly due to the fact that I cram it full of as much stuff as I can each time I use it:imbar
Oh well, maybe this means that after we go buy our new one he wont let me anywhere near it and insist on doing all of the laundry himself.......a girl can dream
Tried the Fabreze, it seems to be getting rid of most of the smell from my furniture so maybe I can put off the seam cleaning till my next days off, dont think I'll need to go down the road of contacting my insurers as the smell seems to be almost gone, thanks for the advice though.
