Smoking and Dust
« on: 12/05/2006 17:40:38 »
The house keeper told me that my apartment gets dustier than other apartments because I smoke cigarettes! I have a lot of friends over almost everyday, and many of them smoke too.
Is it true? How does it happen?

Cigarette smoke will create a lot of particulate matter, and these would settle as dust.

......plus..what's happening to all that ash that sits around in your ashtray...just a little breeze is enough to send it on it's merry way around your apartment.

C'mon laith...what are you REALLY smoking ? ;)

Thanks George,
Do you know if it happens after it reaches the ceiling or midway? Does the smoke spread a lot before the particulate matter or dust is created?

i had a friend who got away with smoking cigarettes in his parents house without them knowing. he had a crazy air-purifier type thing. he would smoke right next to it, it would suck away all the smoke. as for ash, he had a wierd vase like pot that he would put water at the bottom of, when the ash fell in, it just got wet and couldnt fly around. as for the buts, he squeezed the flaming part(cherry)and small amount of tobacco off, into the vase with the water, and put the rest in an empty soda can that he threw out with the rest of his trash. he dumped his water ashtray somewhere in his backyard.

its pretty extreme, but if his parents couldnt tell then neither could your landlord.
