The natural way of odor removal

If your car has quite the stink, maybe it’s coming from the carpet. And if it’s coming from the carpet, we can help. Vinegar is our solution of choice.

Find two bowls and fill them with vinegar. Place these bowls in the car- one near the front of the car, the other near the back.

Close all the doors and windows, allowing the vinegar to sit overnight. The idea is that the bowls of vinegar will absorb the offending odors.

Additionally, think about sprinkling baking soda on your car’s carpet, chairs, and all the upholstery in your car.

In the morning, you can vacuum up the baking powder.

Baking Soda + Vinegar + Water

The classic baking soda and vinegar combo is good for so much beyond science fair volcanoes. First, sprinkle just baking soda over the stained area. You can also mix in a few drops of a colorless essential oil if you’d like some extra deodorizing power. Allow the baking soda to sit atop the stain for at least an hour and ideally overnight.

Mix vinegar and water in equal parts in a spray bottle, then spray the mixture on top of the baking soda. You should get a satisfying fizzing reaction. After the fizzing has taken place, pat the area with a cleaning rag to blot up the mixture. You may need to repeat the process for particularly stubborn spots. Also for strongers stains try adding one drop of Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds cleaner per 2 quarts of warm water.
