The Truth About Car Air Fresheners
My car smells like someone killed a Cherry Slurpee in it. Whenever I get my car washed I’m always so good about remembering to tell them not to put any scent in the vehicle. I don’t want it to smell like imitation “new car” and I don’t want it to smell like a pine tree. True, I don’t want it to smell badly but as I keep my car clean as a whistle inside there’s really no chance of that happening. That was until I let the guy who comes to the office buildings to wash people’s cars get a hold of my vehicle. The truth about car air fresheners – Don’t Get Me Started!
The truth is that there is no good air freshener for your car, shut up, no there is not. And now that I’ve been asphyxiated by something that smells like a rotten cherry apple in a dumpster behind the carnival motor home it was made in (don’t ask me how I know) all I can do is ride around (in cold weather) with the sunroof and windows open hoping for the dissipation of the ungodly smell.
I’ve tried the Yankee Candle car fresheners and almost puked. Frankly I’m amazed to see all the different products you can get for smelling up your car. It’s such a small confined space that it seems as though no matter what you put in it would be overkill. Can someone explain to me the fresheners that clip on your vents or have little fans on them? Is this an industry where people are sitting in the lab trying to figure out just how much “ocean mist” to put in and how many blades the mini fan needs to have on it to smell your car up just the right amount to cover up the smell of your farts but not so much that as you drive down the street you have cartoon green smelly lines emanating from it? And if your car really smells that bad, might I suggest you remove the old fast food bags from under the seats or get rid of whatever it is that is smelling it up so badly as a start? I don’t care what anyone says or how they name it (and who comes up with these name? Linen Fresh, Punkin Pie, Midnight At The Oasis, etc.) they’re all crap and that’s the truth about car air fresheners – Don’t Get Me Started!
