How do you remove the smell of cigarette smoke from a Mac Pro?

Bought a used 2006 Mac Pro to tinker with for a good price only to then have it smell like cigarettes when running due to one of the previous owners smoking habits. How do I remove or mask this awful cigarette smoke odor without damaging the desktop?

Have you wiped down the external case fully with wet wipes or 85% isopropyl alcohol dampened lint free towel? Being careful not to get the cleaner into the switches & sockets. I would have started with that as most of the tars & oils will have stuck to it.

You will also need to dust out the internals using a soft paint brush and a can of can’ed air. You’ll want to wipe the fan blades down with cotton swabs (Q-Tip) with 85% isopropyl alcohol and any of the internal surfaces that look stained.

I completely disassembled the machine yesterday and did a deep cleaning with Isopropyl Alcohol. I thought it worked but once I turned the machine on again and started using it the smoke smell came back. What now?


How brown was the cloths?


Not very brown. There was more dust then actual tar &oil on the cloths.


It sounds like the internals really got coated with the smoke oils & tars. Overtime the smell will fade.

At this point you have two directions masking the smell or filtering the air exiting the system.

● Using a car air fresher near the air intake.

● A carbon air filter on the airflow exhaust. The filter will alter the airflows so it may not cut it down fully.


Alright. Thanks for the advice.
