Unwanted odors can be one of the most uninviting things about a car, right after trash filling the passenger seat. Many stores sell “odor remover” that rarely works and can get expensive depending on how desperate you are. Believe it or not, you probably have everything you need to remove a nasty smell from your car lying around the house. Here are a few quick ways to remove unwanted odors, courtesy of us here at Bell Mitsubishi.

  • Cat Litter – Designed to remove smells, cat litter is a great way to remove odors if you already have a feline friend. Put a bowl of cat litter in the car with the windows rolled up and let it sit for a few hours. The litter will absorb the smell and leave your car virtually odorless.
  • Citrus Peels – If you’re a fan of fruit for breakfast, throw the peels in a cup and leave them in your car for the day. The peels will remove the smell and leave behind a fresh, fruity scent for your driving pleasure.
  • Dryer Sheets – Using a dryer sheet to remove an unwanted smell is as easy as wiping down your cloth seats. No matter what kind of seats you have, place a dryer sheet or two under them to ensure your car always smells fresh.
