3 Simple Tips to Help Your Car Smell Better

Imagine that you see a beautiful woman or a handsome man from across the room. They’re dressed well and have beautiful smiles. You go up to him or her and quickly realize that there is something off… it’s terrible-smelling breath, and all you want to do is get away. 

Don’t let your vehicle become a similar disappointment. Avoid having a gorgeous but stinky-smelling car with a few simple tips for a fresher-smelling vehicle. 
1. Don’t smoke in your car.
This one is a no-brainer, auto upholstery is notorious for absorbing cigarette smoke and holding the smell for years to come. A non-smoker’s car will get you a higher re-sell value than a smoker’s car. In addition, a smoker’s car is simply unpleasant for non-smokers. By not smoking in your car, you can eliminate the opportunity for the odor to linger. 

2. Removing any junk from the trunk.
Even when your vehicle’s passenger area is clean, the other parts of your car can develop nasty odors. It’s possible for a trunk to leak as your car ages. Dampness causes carpet lining to breed mildew and develop a musty. Any items that are in your trunk maybe affected by dampness as well, for example, cardboard box. Lots of people transport their groceries in their trunk, and it’s always possible for some food has spill out and go undetected.

3. Using an automotive air freshener.
Like the story of the good-looking people with bad breath, a thorough cleaning from the inside is the first step. Much like chewing gum won’t get you fresh breath in the long-term, it’s a great addition to someone’s hygiene routine. An air freshener is a great addition to an already clean and fresh-smelling car interior.
