Unfortunately for all of us, new car smell can’t last forever. Not to worry though! Below, we’ve gathered six of our favorite tips to help your vehicle stay smelling fresh as a daisy.

No trash allowed:

Be sure to take trash with you when leaving your car– accidentally leaving some behind can cause a stink that lasts for days after.  

Keep your car interior dry:

Use waterproof floor mats and crack your windows to let wet seats or carpets air dry as much as possible to avoid mildew. 

Use spill-proof cups:

Reusable cups with lids aren’t just good for the environment! They will help prevent spills that are inevitable with quick stops or sharp turns.

Air freshener hacks:

Air fresheners work wonders, but if you don’t like the artificial scent they sometimes provide, don’t worry! Leave an open box of dryer sheets or container of coffee beans in your trunk or under a seat and have your car smelling like clean laundry or a fresh cup of joe in no time.

Baking soda isn’t just for refrigerators:

Sprinkle a bit of the substance around your car and let it sit overnight to soak up any unwanted smells before vacuuming it up the next morning.
