I'm a non smoker. Can I legally refuse a big truck that has been smoked in. My company has given me an older truck that has been smoked in for years. Can I refuse to drive it. I'm in Canada.

i agree with the last 2 posts...another wonderful cleaner for smoke smell is plain ole vinegar and is only a couple of bucks per gallon...you can spray this on everything treat it a few times close it off for a few hours open doors and the vinegar odor will fade out quickly..another one if you want to spend a little extra is ODO BAN sold by home depot...i cleaned a whole house with this product and the smoke smell was lifted in a 3 day treatment only reason why they needed to paint is beacuse of the yellow nicotine...the smell never came thru the paint!! i wouldn't refuse a job for that reason solve the issue yourself i recommend! good and happy driving!

Baking soda works like the coffee does - fill the ashtray with it and sprinkle liberally around the cab - cheaper than coffee, too!!!

Take the truck cause might be only one they got they can offer u. To get rid of smoke inside a truck, wipe down the inside good and use febreeze on the cloth seats. Also take small cans with on/off lids and put small holes in the plastc lids, place ground coffee into the containers and place them inside the truck in different areas including under the bed in the storage area...this will naturally remove the smoke from the inside the truck.
