How to Get Your Car to Smell Better

5 Fool Proof Ways to Keep that New Car Smell

Fresh Start Odour Treatment is an odour control system that can remove smoke smells from cars.

Isn't it amazing when you get a new car complete with that new car smell? Unfortunately, it doesn’t take long for that delightful scent to fade and before long your car just stinks. It’s an awful feeling to be driving in your car and wondering what the heck you’re smelling. If you happen to be giving someone a ride, it’s just plain embarrassing. The worst thing about it is that if you spend a lot of time in your car, after a while you will start to smell like it. Here are some tips that will help you keep your car smelling fresh even when it’s not brand new. Have you ever heard the expression ‘Nose Blind’?

Remove garbage from your car. When you leave garbage or clothing in your car it won’t take long for it to create an odour. Even one or two items each day can turn into quite a mess after a week or two. When you consider that those food containers have leftover (now spoiled) food in them and that dirty clothes grow bacteria, it’s not surprising that it makes your car smell bad.

Minimize Pet Hair. Did you know that pet hair is hollow and retains odours for long periods of time? Reduce pet hair in your vehicle by covering your seats with an old (clean) blanket. Shake it out and wash it regularly. Vacuum out all other pet hair from your vehicle weekly. It can be hard to remove but be persistent. Try a “Rock Fur Remover” or pumice stone for best results. Never shampoo a car with dog hair still present. It will only make it worse.

Give your car a mini-clean each week. If you set aside half an hour each week to vacuum the carpet and upholstery, shake out your mats, and clean the inside of your vehicle, you will eliminate most odours.

Don't smoke in your car. If at all possible, don’t allow anyone to smoke in your car. It is very difficult to get rid of the smell and even if you don’t notice it, your passengers will.

Try an odour treatment. Odour treatments such as Fresh Start Odour Treatment will eliminate odours such as smoke or pets and leave your car smelling fresh and clean.

The secret to keeping your car smelling fresh is to do a little bit each day. While you do have to put some effort into it, it’ll be worth it every time you open your car door and your passengers will thank you for it!
