cigarette smell in clothes

My friend gave me some hand me downs for my daughter. I would like to use some of the items except for the fact that they reek of cigarette smoke. I have washed the clothes once in tide with bleach and they still smell. Can I get this smell out with febreeze or a homemade recipe or just forget it. Any ideas thanks.

Hi Laura,
Try putting vinegar in the rinse cycle, you may have to do it a couple of times but it should work.

I have used OxiClean in the past and it did indeed work...
