It is really difficult to remove smoke odor because it is from tar residue that cleaners like Murphy Oil Soap can't dissolve. The inside of the drawers can be helped by placing newspapers in them and heating them with a hairdryer and then tossing them after they've cooled and had a chance to suck up some of the smell. Just heat the papers and try not to heat the wood too much Then as Steve suggests, keep baking soda in them. A site I have had good luck with in my restorations is: Go to :
and scroll down to the link on removing smoke. It really depends on what finish the furniture has as to what you can do to get the tar out. Luck, Kizmet
