3 Car Air Fresheners Tips


Does your car still smell like that fast food you picked up a few days ago? Is the aroma of your kid’s hockey gear still lingering after being carted around all season? Unwanted odors can turn any car trip into an unpleasant experience, but there may be easy ways to get rid of them. Try these three quick fixes to freshen up your ride.

1. Baking Soda

Baking soda can help to neutralize odors, according to Consumer Reports:

Step 1: Pour baking soda into a mason jar.

Step 2: Put the open jar into one of your car’s cupholders. Let it sit overnight or as long as it takes to remove odors. To help prevent spilling, be sure to remove the jar from your car or put the lid on before driving.

2. Coffee Beans

Coffee beans can also help absorb unpleasant smell. Thrillist recommends this approach:

Step 1: Gather a clean sock you no longer wear, some whole coffee beans, a piece of twine or string and a funnel.

Step 2: Pour the coffee beans through the funnel into the sock.

Step 3: Once the sock is full, tie the end closed.

Step 4: Place under your passenger seat until the odor is gone. Be sure it’s not blocking an air vent, speaker, heating element, motor or any other object.


3. Clothespin and Essential Oil

Here’s how to transform a simple clothespin into an air freshener, as suggested by Simple Life Mom:

Step 1: Gather a wooden clothespin and a small bottle of essential oil, in whatever scent you prefer.

Step 2: Apply 5 to 10 drops of the essential oil to the clothespin.

Step 3: Clip the clothespin into an air vent in your car. Depending on the essential oil, how often you drive your car and how much air is blowing, the scent may last a few days or longer. You can add a few more drops of essential oil to the clothespin when the scent has faded.
