Whether it’s cigarette smoke or a spill, removing unwanted odors from your car can be tough. Even if you roll down the windows, the smell won’t go away. Once the smell has made its way into the carpet and seats, it can be incredibly hard to get rid of. Fortunately there are ways to remove odors from a car. Here are a few cheap and effective methods from us here at Wantagh Mazda.
- Cinnamon Sticks – Great for winter, the smell of cinnamon can easily overpower any unwanted odor. Boil several cinnamon sticks in water then pour it into a mug. Roll up your windows and leave the mug in your car until it cools. The smell of cinnamon will quickly take over your car, leaving you with an enjoyable scent every time you drive.
- Cat Litter – Designed to absorb unwanted smells in the litterbox, cat litter can remove smells from your car as well. Just leave a bowl of litter in your car overnight. By morning, the smell will be gone and you can reuse the litter for your feline friend!
- Newspaper – While most news is digital, physical newspapers still have some use. Crumple up a few pieces and leave them in your car overnight. The newspaper will absorb nearly any smell.
