Weird Ways to Freshen Your Car
These unconventional tips will help get rid of car smells and keep unwanted odors at bay.
Pour fragrant bath salts
into a loose-leaf tea
strainer, and place it in the glove compartment for a
fast refresher every time
you pull out the map.
Get a whiff of wax
Drop a potpourri wax tart—
commonly made by candle
companies—into a cup holder,
and take your favorite scent with you wherever you go.
Dry and drive
Lay fresh herbs, such as basil, on a piece of newspaper in the backseat and leave the windows rolled up
to dry the leaves and banish bad odors.
Shake a few drops of lemon
or eucalyptus essential oil onto
car mats for a naturally sweet scent that will last
a few weeks.
