In the close, confined quarters of your car, even moderately bad odors can quickly spiral out of control.

At Tyler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we're committed to helping you maintain the value, usability, and overall appeal of your auto for as long as possible.

Don't Rely Too Heavily on Air Fresheners

Air fresheners have thick, cloying fragrances that can mask just about anything. Unfortunately, however, these products aren't capable of doing anything more than merely hiding the scents that you're trying to get rid of. Moreover, they aren't guaranteed to work for long. When you've got a pervasive and undeniably unpleasant odor in your car, you'll have to seek out its source to get rid of it. Turn floor mats over, check between seats, and look in all crevices and cracks for the culprit. Rather than using a low-cost, store-bought air freshener to combat odors caused by spills, look for an industrial-strength odor eliminator, such as one sold by an automotive supply store. If the affected area is dry, you may be able to get rid of the offending smell by sprinkling a small amount of baking soda on the spot to absorb it.

Vacuuming and steam cleaning floor mats, upholstery, and other absorbent surfaces could be your best bet, especially if you're trying to get rid of smoke odors. When the problem remains persistent, interior detailing could be your only choice. Visit us at Tyler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram today for a thorough cleaning that's guaranteed to restore that coveted "new car" smell.
