How to Get Rid of a Musty Car Smell
5 Ways to Say Goodbye to That Stink Once and For All!
Is the inside of your car starting to smell musty? Whether it’s because you’ve been driving around with your windows closed or you never use your A/C, we all have had our share of unpleasant smells coming from places we least expect.
A smelly car can sap the enjoyment from any drive and even make riding in your vehicle unappealing for everybody inside. Imagine going on a three-hour drive and getting distracted by that awful odor. So much for an exciting road trip, huh?
Fortunately, getting rid of a musty smell isn’t as complicated as it might seem. With just a few simple steps, you’ll be able to restore the pleasant scent coming from your air conditioning vents and say goodbye to that stink once and for all. Don’t worry, there’s no need for expensive services or the use of harsh chemicals!
Ready to learn how you can take that overpowering smell away so you can ride in complete comfort once again? Breast Cancer Car Donations shows you how to freshen the air inside your car with this five-step guide:
1. Clean your upholstery.
Vacuum any fabric or leather upholstery inside your car first to eliminate surface dirt and debris that may be causing the musty odor. Vacuum cup holders, underneath seats, and crevices, too. Then, use a damp cloth to wipe hard surfaces for a more thorough cleaning.
2. Remove and replace floor mats.
The musty odor may be coming from dirty floor mats. Remove them and replace them with clean ones. If you don’t have any spare mats, use a carpet cleaner to deep-clean the mats on the floor.
3. Use baking soda or activated charcoal.
Place either baking soda or activated charcoal around your car for a few days after cleaning the upholstery and removing the floor mats. This should help absorb any lingering musty odors. If you notice the smell coming back after a few days, repeat this step until it’s gone for good.
4. Feel free to use vinegar, too.
It’s well-known that vinegar is a great weapon against bad smells. That said, leave a small cup or bowl of vinegar inside your car overnight. The vapor from the vinegar will eliminate even the strongest of odors.
5. Finish with an air freshener.
Once you’ve cleaned out your beloved car, removed the source of the musty odor, and let baking soda or activated charcoal work their magic, it’s time to refresh your ride with a pleasant-smelling air freshener. You can find many types available at auto stores that will provide long-lasting freshness to keep your car smelling great!
