Spilled coffee is the last thing on your mind when you find yourself rushing out the door in the mornings with your travel mug. After all, you have a gazillion other things to worry about! Once spilled, however, coffee can turn into a horrible odor that stinks up your trusty ol’ vehicle rather quickly.
Other smells that could linger in your car may originate from your sick child throwing up as you rush them to a doctor’s appointment, or the smell of cigarette smoke that remains persevering in your vehicle.
This article is all about helping you eliminate such odors and gaining that new car smell again. The first step to do so is to isolate the odors. There are two types of smells that your vehicle may be harboring – ones that come from the obvious sources and the ones that do not!
Often, we do not think much about the odors and simply use an air freshener to manage the stench. Unfortunately, experts say that these products often only mask the smell, instead of neutralizing the odor and removing it!
Here are a few simple methods that may work for you:
Vacuum The Smell Away
The most likely cause of an odorous car is that these smells are trapped in the fabric of the interior. Vacuuming by using the special upholstery attachment can work in such cases. Try to reach every nook and cranny while you vacuum, as the smells can potentially be hiding in the smallest of crevices! Not satisfied? Try steam cleaning as another option to concur and defeat the odor!
Baking Soda May Help
Another way to remove lingering smells is by using baking soda. If you accidentally spill your coffee on the carpet, a touch of baking soda will take care of it. Once you are done sprinkling, rub the powder in the affected area and then allow it to sit for a few hours.
This treatment will allow the concentrate to absorb all free smells. Next, clean the baking soda from the carpet with your vacuum. Keep in mind that leaving the powder on a wet mess will only allow it to crystallize instead of removing the odors.
Charcoal is one of the best substances that you can probably find that will absorb smells. In order to make this work for you, grab some charcoal and allow the pieces to sit in the vehicle for a few days.
Soon, it will have absorbed the odors, leaving your car smell-free, and don’t worry, those pieces of charcoal are also still safe to use afterwards for grilling!
While these remedies may work or not, we have one that is guaranteed to work.
