This is one of the simpler tips you can follow: place a bar of your favorite soap in the car as an air freshener substitute. You can place it under the car seat or on the dashboard.
Bonus tip! You can grate the bar into flakes and put them into an empty container. Smells just as great as any store-bought air freshener and lasts way longer!
Tip 2: Use Fabric Spray

Did you know charcoal makes for a great odour absorber? This is because activated charcoal, used in many air and water filters, is one of the best substances to absorb smells. Grab a chunk of charcoal, leave the charcoal in the car for a few days, and you will soon find the smells have gone away because they are absorbed into the charcoal!
So the next time you feel like your car is starting to give off strange smells, don’t worry, these tips have got you covered!
