If your old air freshener in the car is over, do not despair if you do not have enough money to buy a new one. You can make a flavor with handy means.
If you have an empty bottle of flavor, instead of buying a new cartridge, you can pour into the bottle some water and add four drops of essential oil of your choice - sold in pharmacies. The effect will be overwhelming, and if you want, you can change the aroma of your car regularly.
Moreover, you can pour several drops of essential oil on the small filter in the vacuum cleaner and then the cleaning air will be much fresher.
If you want your car saloon to smell of a freshly baked apple pie, make a flavor of 2 apple slices, 2 cinnamon sticks, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, and 2 tea cups of water. Boil all of the listed ingredients at a moderate temperature so that you can mix their flavor and when you feel the smell of pie, pour the ingredients into a glass jar. Fill an empty bottle of flavor with the liquid, and the rest keep in a closed glass jar.
For the vanilla air freshener you have to prepare 30 grams of gelatin, 2 teaspoons of water, 1 tablespoon of salt, and 2-3 drops of liquid vanilla essence. Boil half of the water and only when boiling add the gelatin and salt. Swirl well and add the rest of the water together with the vanilla. Agitate again and pour the finished flavor in an empty bottle of flavor.
Scent of cloves and orange
You can also make a bag scent, and you will need coffee filters, soda, bark of grated orange and grains of cloves. Fill the filters with the listed ingredients and finally tie them with a colored thread to hang anywhere in the vehicle.
Scent of rosemary and lemon
Scent of rosemary and lemon is another typical aroma for autumn. For preparing this flavor you will need one piece of essential oil of rosemary and lemon. You also need 2 teaspoons of soda bicarbonate and between 1 and 2 teaspoons of boiled water. Stir the baking soda with the water until a sticky mixture is obtained, and finally add the essential oils. You can put the sticky mice in ice molds and let it dry for at least 48 hours, and then you can use it to flavor your car.
How to Cope with Offensive Odors in the Car?
If you want to have fresh car, you need to focus on car upholstery cleaning. You need to vacuum your vehicle regularly and wipe the dust at least once a week. It is not recommended to smoke inside the car because cigarette smoke odor can last for years. However, if you do smoke in your vehicle, clean the ashtrays every day. Also, put some cat litter sand inside the ashtrays. It will absorb the cigarette smell.
If you have decided to give up smoking, it is good to clean all the surfaces in the car with vinegar solution. A cotton cloth, damped in vinegar, and left inside the car for a night, will also eliminate the cigarette smoke odor. Another way of using vinegar for coping with unpleasant smell is placing two bowls of white vinegar for the night in the car. They have to be located – on the dashboard and on the back seats. On the next day, take the bowls out of the car and open the windows to let some fresh air in. The vinegar odor will disappear in several hours.
Besides vinegar, you can use baking soda as a natural remover of offensive odors. Spread baking soda all over the seats and leave it to act for the night. Baking soda is used not only for refreshing the air but for car upholstery cleaning as well. It will remove old stains from the upholstery and will refresh the seats.
Some people advise to make a mixture of water and baking soda for car upholstery cleaning. Both methods for refreshing the air in the car are equally effective.
One of the most effective and easy methods for purifying the air in the car saloon is spreading fresh orange peels on the back seats. Immediately you will sense the citrus scent in your car that will replace the offensive cigarette smoke odor.
Keeping a bowl of coffee beans inside the car is another way to refresh the air in the car. Every day your car will smell of your favorite coffee.
Don’t underestimate the importance of professional car upholstery cleaning! Using expert cleaning procedures at least once a month is of great significance for the cleanness and fresh odor in your vehicle.
