Neither has driving with all the windows open. I have deep cleaned the seats, dash etc but nothing seems to help. My wife refuses to get into the car - says it burns her nostrils.
I don't want any smell in the car so masking it is not an option. Like it to smell like old leather shoes.
Gliptone Liquid Leather will clean, nourish and make it smell of leather again. You may have enough with the spray on cleaner and the conditioner. More engrained dirt will need the gentle cleaner. There is also a really overpowering leather fragrance pad which will stink up your car good and proper. It makes it smell as if you are driving around in a shoe. Good thing about it is that it is so strong it will kill any other fragrance, smell, odour, pong you might have in your car. I've used one to get rid of tobacco stink from the previous owner. Worked a treat but couldn't stomach living in a shoe. Good news is the car smells great now either because my nose has killed itself or because it really has effectively overpowered every other stink the car had. I have a pine scent in there now.... Smells terrific..... I think.....
PS. For sale, one Gliptone pong pad. Used for two days. Offers accepted.
