3 Simple Tips for a Better-Smelling Car
Suppose you see a beautiful woman or a handsome man from across the room that’s dressed well and has a beautiful smile. After going up to him or her, you very quickly discover something is off… it’s terrible-smelling breath, and now all you want to do is get as far away as possible.
Don’t allow your car to be a similar disappointment. What good is a gorgeous but stinky-smelling vehicle? Follow these easy tips for a fresher smelling car.
1. Stop smoking in your car.
This one is easy. Auto upholstery is known to absorb cigarette smoke and hold that foul smell for years. Not to mention, a non-smoker’s vehicle has a higher resale. A smoker’s vehicle is very noticeable to non-smokers. By not smoking in your vehicle, you eliminate the possibility for that odor to linger.
2. Remove Your Junk From Your Trunk
If the passenger cabin is clean, it doesn’t mean you are not still prone to bad odors. It’s possible that your vehicle’s trunk may leak as your car gets older. Dampness can also cause carpet lining to breed mildew and develop a musty odor. Anything stored in your trunk maybe affected by dampness, like cardboard boxes or old towels. Even stray groceries in your trunk can allow for the possibility of food spilling out and going undetected.
3. Auto air fresheners
Like the story of the handsome couple with bad breath, a real cleaning from the inside is the first step. The same way gum won’t get you fresh breath long-term, it’s a great addition to a hygiene routine. Air fresheners are great additions to already clean and fresh-smelling car interiors.
