Your Car Stinks: Here's How To Fix It
Some people are used to (and don't mind) their own stink. Take my Dad, for example, whose Nissan emitted a bouquet of cigar smoke and manliness. Everyone else, whether carpool pals, children or spouses, not so much.
Olfaction is one of our strongest senses, so it's no wonder we tend to pick up scents in vehicles and form a value judgment (people even go so far as to try to recreate the "new car smell" with artificial fresheners).If you want to get the inside of your car smelling like a car instead of a locker room and don't feel like springing for a pro job, here are a few hints to quickly de-funk your interior, and/or keep it fresh-smelling:
