Clearly I am not advocating smoking, but if you are a lady who does happen to smoke this vintage style windproof ashtray is my favorite.
You know how you go to a smoker’s house and there are ashtrays everywhere? I like this one because with the flip-top it’s easy to tote to wherever I need it. By the tub, in the living room, on my desk when I’m working.
When it’s not in use with just a flip it’s closed quickly. If you don’t know what it is, you have no idea what you’re looking at across the room. It just looks like a pretty little orb.
This vintage ashtray reminds me of the old-fashioned floor lamps with the ash trays attached. There’d be a push button that you pressed to drop the ashes into the bowl below. This is a nod back to the days when smoking was portrayed everywhere as glamorous. I know it’s hard to believe there ever was such a time.
I’m also not compulsively emptying it because there are no butts showing.
And this is an old tip but every time I empty the ashtray I cover the bottom with a little bit of baking soda or carpet deodorizer. It cuts the smoke odor significantly. Try it and you really will notice a difference.
