Keeping your vehicle smelling fresh and clean is important even if you’re the only one who uses it. Unfortunately, odors from spills, smoke, pets, and more can quickly overpower a car’s interior. If you’re looking for tips on how to deodorize your car and banish unpleasant smells, read on for 10 practical car deodorizing tips!
Don’t Just Mask Odors
A lot of products you can buy don’t even promise to deodorize your car, they only promise to mask the smell. I was looking at a product in the store recently and I noticed that there was an asterisk next to the word “odor elimination”. This piqued my interest. Looking at the small print on the back of the product, it said “*eliminates the perception of odor”. This made me laugh! They don’t get to the root of the issue, but just keep you coming back to buy more odor masking products time after time.
10 Car Deodorizing Tips
We want to help you to take the steps to deal with the odor for good, not just cover it up over and over again. This brings us to our first tip:
1. Investigate the source of the odor
Where is it coming from? If you can find the source, then you can work to remove that source and the problem should be solved.
2. Throw out any obvious causes of a bad smell
If you find a forgotten fast food bag under the car seat, then that needs to be thrown out! If this solves the problem then that’s a win!
3. Vacuum down your seats and carpets
This will help to remove any dust or dirt that may be causing the smell. Also, when you get your vacuum into those hard-to-reach spots, you may find more trash that needs to be taken care of. Vacuuming prepares your car for the PuroClenz treatment.
4. Wipe surfaces
Wipe down your surfaces with a damp cloth. This removes any dust and dirt that may have been left behind after vacuuming.
5. Spot clean
Spot clean spills and stains on the carpet or upholstery. This will help to eliminate any nasty odors that may have come from those areas.
6. Treat smelly seats with white vinegar
Simply spray white vinegar on the seat and let it sit for a few minutes. The acidity of the vinegar will help to neutralize any odors. You can then follow up with a damp cloth to wipe away the excess liquid.
7. Put dryer sheets under your seats
This is a great way to keep your car smelling fresh and clean! Simply put some dryer sheets under the seats and replace them every few weeks.
8. Sprinkle some baking soda in your car
Baking soda is a great deodorizing agent and will help to neutralize any odors in your car. Simply sprinkle some over affected areas and vacuum it up a few hours later.
9. Put coffee beans in your car
Coffee beans are great for absorbing odors, so this is a great way to make your car smell nice! Put some in little bowls and place them around the car.
