How To Get Rid Of Odours & Keep The “New Car” Smell

harrison

The scent of ‘freshness’ you get when purchasing a new car is often short-lived. Within a week it’s covered in the kid’s candy wrappers and soda cans. Sounds familiar, right!?

It doesn’t have to be this way. There are ways to maintain the freshness of a newly bought car, and that’s what we’re going to talk about in this article. You’ll learn how to keep it clean, the importance of a high-quality air freshener, and detailing the interior.

Keep it Clean

When it comes to maintaining freshness, the most important thing is keeping your car clean. A clean car is a fresh-smelling car. However, it’s not as simple as it sounds. There’s more to cleaning a car than just going over the seats with a vacuum. 

For starters, why not stop bad habits in their tracks? We recommend setting some rules with your children and yourself. Rules like, “No eating and drinking in the car.” We all know how a greasy meal can transform the smell of your car.

Once you’ve started following these rules, it’s best to clear out your car once a month. This will get rid of the access dirt, debris, and other junk lying around.

Invest In An Air Freshener

If you want a quick and easy solution, why not invest in an air freshener? Not only will it mask current odours, but it will also keep everything smelling fresh. What more could you want?

The issue with some air fresheners is they don’t last long. If you get a cheaper one, the effects only last a few days. That’s why we recommend putting some money aside for a high-quality air freshener.

Plus, it will save you money in the long run. What’s the point in buying low-quality air fresheners every week!?

What’s more, nice smells, such as those produced by air fresheners, have been shown to have a positive effect on our mental health. 

With that being said, here’s a list of people who would benefit from a car air freshener…

  • People with animals (especially dogs)
  • Anxious drivers
  • People who want to eliminate bad smells
  • The people who want to disinfect their cars

Detail The Interior

The most important thing you can do to eliminate odours in your car is to detail the interior on a regular basis. Not only will it smell better, but you’ll also ‘feel’ better behind the wheel. No one wants to drive in a dirt car. Over time, dust and other debris collect on the seats, floor, and dashboard. This can cause low air quality and lead to a number of allergens and health issues. Many people just vacuum the carpets and call it a day. However, this still leaves dust and debris in other areas such as the seat and doors.

For the dirt left behind, you’ll want to do some basic car detailing. We recommend getting an interior detailing kit if you want to do the best job possible.
