How to Make Your Car Smell Better?

You are looking for inexpensive and chemical-free ways of dealing with a smelly car, you have come to the right place. Check out some useful tips to keep your vehicle smelling good for longer.

Car-Air Freshener

Another great way to eliminate nasty odors is by sprinkling baking soda on the carpets and seats, scrub it in with a brush and let it sit overnight before vacuuming it.

Vacuum Regularly

First, remove the floor mats. Then vacuum the interior of your car. This will not only help to remove bad odors but any dirt or crumbs that are in the car.

Wash the Car Floor Mats

Vacuum them on both sides. Then, all you need is water, a non-abrasive soap, and a hose. Let the mats dry outside before putting them back.

Vehicle mats are the area that collects the most dirt, mud, even gum or other stuff that could contribute to bad smells inside the car. Make sure to wash the mats often and leave them to dry outside.

No Food Left Inside

Food inside a hot car will not only make your car smell horrible but pose a health risk. Bacteria can become more active at temperatures reached inside a car causing food-borne illnesses to double every 20 minutes.

Trash Out!

Of course, you may want to get rid of any trash build up in your car. Lingering rubbish will only generate more unpleasant odors, that with time, will get worse. Make it a habit to take out the trash when you exit your car at the end of the day.
