Stinky Stinky Stinky


Got a smelly car at the weekend, 99.9% due to cigarettes. Before I rush off to Halfords’s and get baffled/mesmerised with all the odour neutralisers car anyone please recommend a genuinely good product to get rid of the smell of cigarettes out of my car.

Many thanks.

Ps. No offence to smokers

I did find febreze to work pretty well, it seems to draw the odour out of the fabrics

Clean all the hard surfaces with an all purpose cleaner, the leather with a weak solution of all purpose cleaner then feed with something like Gliptone. The roof lining with a foam cleaner and carpets/matts with a wet vac. Or if you have access to a steam cleaner use it on all of the above and then borrow the fogger as a final stage.

My sisters boyfried works for Audi, he just got a second hand Honda that got part ex's for an Audi. A smoker had that, now he got rid of the smell by using a 'bomb'. I have no idea what it is, but i presume its a gas of some sort that the put through the air con or whatever. I'd imagine most main dealers hav something similar to valet their cars with.

The greatest invention ever is something called Neutradol.
It basically sticks onto your dash etc and works a treat. Instant freshness

Fabreeze (sp?) works well.

The Mrs recently purchased a car that had a bad cigarette odour in it. Cleaning all the interior, especially the seats, followed by fabreeze done the job.
