I’d keep as many windows open as you can, for as long as you can. If you have some high quality candles, burning them might help neutralize the smell. 

Or simmer water with some nice smelling dried herbs (or vanilla essence and cinnamon…mmmm) on the stove. 

If you have a good vacuum that might also help? The kind that is supposed to improve air quality?

A half vinegar/half water mix in a spray bottle should take the smell out of fabrics (without making them smell like vinegar). I’ve never had any issues, bit just make sure you test it somewhere inconspicuous.

Smoke is pretty stinky and hard to get rid of, but a combination of the above tends to work for me for other things. Good luck!

jpalm13:  I’m not brave enough for ammonia…I tend to just go the bicarb (baking soda in the US?) and vinegar route. Have you tried that before?

It all works better when the oven is warm, but just make sure you have the vinegar in a spray bottle because it makes it easier to clean out all the bicarb. It will leave white powder everywhere if you don’t spray it down really well!
