What is a good air freshener for your car?
Hello all,

I buy all types of air fresheners for my car and some of them usual don't work or are overly strong. What do you use or recommend?

Will air ionizer, the one that you plug into the cigarette lighter, able to remove bad smell in a car?

Is there any scents that smell like 'new car' or the like? Where can I get them, what brand?

...... Can't afford a new car, just want to buy "the smell"....

Vitamin

Bro..

One thing i noticed to get back the merc smell.. If u smoke in the car, stop smoking, usually it will come back after a while. I tried that.. And 240D said it smells like a merc now.

Cheers

Luckily, I don't smoke. Cigarette smell is very hard to remove because it permeate into the seating materials, fabric, leather and carpet. If you're non smoker and step in into a smoker's car.....you'll notice. Normally smokers don't realise their car smell tobacco but non-smokers do, just like rooms in a hotel, there are non-smoking and smoking rooms.

I'm looking for scents that last and can kill leather smell for good.

The best air Freshener in a car is made by Gliptone, a company in the UK. It is a Leather Smell, more like Connoly leather kind of. But you can't get it here I belive. Been scouring all over for it but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Yup, most air freshener can leave you having a 'fening kepala' after a while....

I remember many years ago ...really many years ago ...10 years..I have this friend who buy some kind of leather and he placed that leather in his Volvo..The car smells really like brand new Volvo. He is also chain smokers and like puffing in his car..but that leather freshener did a good job of keeping his car fresh....nice leather smell..

If anyone find this freshner...do share..as I believe this is what Vitamin is looking for....and that also includes me..

Re: What is a good air freshener for your car?
While waiting for that magic freshener, enclosed are additional tips on how to help you to keep your car fresh or odor free.

1. Purchase a car air freshener. Often car fresheners are initially very strong. If you find the scent too overwhelming, open the package and take the freshener only halfway out, then tuck it under the car seat. You can put it in a more conspicuous place if you need stronger freshening after a few days on the road.

2. Try to establish a no smoking rule in the vehicle. If this proves impossible, do not use the car's ashtray. Instead, have the smoker use a disposable cup half filled with water, that can be covered when not in use and thrown out when you stop.

3. Eat outside of the vehicle as much as possible. If you do eat inside, open the windows or circulate the air with the AC or heat. Put all wrappers in the trash bags, and dispose of the bags at every stop. Use the cleaning wipes to thoroughly clean out the cup holders, steering wheel, and all other plastic components of the vehicle, either when you finish eating or when you stop.

4. Use the paper towels to clean up any fuel spills, and dispose of them properly at the gas station.

5. When you stop at night, or will be out of the vehicle for a few hours, spritz the upholstery with the fabric refresher. This will help draw out any lingering odors
