  1. How long do you spray the vents? How long do you leave the windows down and fan on?

  2. What if I left chicken in the car over night and now it smells

  3. 🇺🇸 Sprinkle baking powder on top of the odor spot. Let it sit for at least an hour. Then vacuum. Repeat until the odor goes away. 🇺🇸

  4. Can you please share what deodorizer did you use?

  5. Go 80mph on the freeway with all windows rolled down.

  6. Were can i buy those vent cleaner cant find anything on it

  7. can I use gas compressed air?

  8. Larry is the ultimate

  9. Fresh air in NYC . . . lol

  10. All I did was check my Good Smell tank and it seemed to be low so I refilled it😌

  11. Where can I purchase that areosal bottle extender plastic tube?

    1. Hey Robert! We couldn’t find an extender being sold separately (let us know if you find one!) but it looks like there are some vent cleaners for sale that come with a longer tube for cleaning vents. Here’s one example we found on Amazon:

  12. What about a car that got nailed by a skunk on the outside? Can you do a video for this? I believe my car got gassed by a skunk and i had the air on and it’s inside now.

  13. Thanks guys.. now my car won’t stink like hangover farts for the beginning of the year

  14. Best way to get odors ,especially from smoker, in the upholstery is with an ozone generator, 2 or 3 15 minutes and all odor gone. If you are a hog and your car is a trash heap just burn it down ,it’s hopeless as are you

  15. I’m not a smoker, but I left my car to be wrapped, and they had my car for two weeks. When I got it back, I almost threw up in it!! They had so much smoke fumes in it that I had to leave my windows down for four days in the garage!! That helped, but I still smelled that little stinch. So I cleaned and conditioned my seats, and that did it. I sprayed some febreeze in the headliner before I did the seats. Then put an air freshener in to top it off..

  16. Ok so I enjoy videos like these bc I really think they show ppl you can save money by doing work yourself but I also wish they shared what products they use. If you’re curious I use Turtle Wax and I found this one scrubber only because I was trying to get out some year old gum from my back carpet mat. Why’d I wait that long? Well the car wash club I went to said they couldn’t get it out even after paying $120 to shampoo the carpets and I -thinking they had to have the answer for everything- lost hope. Then one day I was like nope I’m gonna get rid of that gum, jumped on YouTube to find out how, went to Walmart and got overwhelmed by all the brands on the shelf, went home with nothing, jumped back on YouTube, and then the beautiful algorithm introduced me to Turtle Wax’s YouTube channel. They have a lot of tutorials for their products which tbh you may not need if you’re only buying their car wash stuff and interior cleaners, but for some of their other stuff the videos are really useful. I’d watch em anyhow though just in case it comforts you. I realize I typed a lot so I’m just gonna leave this link here now. Don’t worry I’m not a bot and this link won’t bring me any money. If you’re scared of clicking links on the comments section like I am just Google: Tuttle Wax Power Out Carpet cleaner and choose whatever product you want.

  17. Useful video. Subscribed the channel

    1. @Autoblog you are welcome. Need more such videos

    2. Kusal, thanks for the Sub! Glad you’re enjoying these videos.

  18. usually girls car are the smelliest

  19. Im not a professional, but I drive a lot and my car gets smelly from time to time and here’s what I do:

    1. Cleanup the inside of my car.
    2. Turn my heat on high recycle.
    3. Spray about 1/4 bottle of Ozium inside of my car.
    4. Leave the car running for about 30 minutes.
    5. Open the windows and let the car air out for about 15 minutes.

    It works great and it’s pretty easy.

    (Of course change the cabin filter about once a year)

    1. Ozium is awesome stuff!

  20. U guys suck

  21. My wife says that my truck smells like a trash bin. So now I know what to do to make it smell pretty like her sweet smelling powder room car. Thanks Autoblog. I am cleaning my act tomorrow so that my wife can ride in my truck once a year and smell the fresh scent of a beauty salon all heavenly and such. Ahhhhhhhhh!

  22. Chick fil a bad fell over when i made a left turn, theres probably still that 1 fry under my passenger seat 🙃

    1. Especially a large Waffle Fry. There is more surface area for smelling to sublimate, evaporate, confiscate, obliterate, or whatever the hell it is does to stink up.

  23. A leaf blower is very good for cleaning the car.

  24. How do you kill the smoke bacteria?

  25. Ozone Generator is a good way to kill odors.

  26. Change the cabin air filter occasionally is probably the best tip.

  27. Bottom line,No smoking in ur car,plus no beer,food. Just
    Water.

  28. Can you just use Lysol spray into the intake vents while the AC is on full blast with out recirculating on and all windows down? Or is this method in the video the best way to do it?

  29. Soo. Clean it.

  30. VERY HELPFUL THANKS

  31. i have stipped a car of seats i dont know what was spilt on the carpet but the smell is verry bad it has being siting like that for weeks nowi was told i have shampood steamed and extracted all liquids from the carpet i also shampooed the headliner of the car but the smell is still there what else can i try the smell is very bad and i cant find the source i cleaned all plastics all carpets seats everything i could think of i even dried out the car with a heater could it be that what ever was spilt went through the carpet then through the foam/spungy stuff and and down to the bare metal will i have to pull out all the carpet and stuff or is there another solution to mask the smell or something i even used baking soda for over 24 hours and the smell is still there i need a solution please from someoneit smells like someone took a shit in the car

  32. U mean evaporator… 1:38

  33. If you have really bad smoked in smells you need to use an ozone machine nothing else will work

  34. That french frie liked good,I would have eaten it

    1. That’s gross

    2. Wtf

  35. I never leave trash in my truck but most of the smell comes from sweat getting into my cloth seats so I keep a bottle of fabreze

    1. @Ascent Zaak I understand that, but they have windows.

    2. Some people don’t have A/C, Samuel

    3. Do you not run your A/C while driving?

  36. For vids search for ammo NYC.

  37. Not all vehicles have a cabin filter. Don’t go ripping panels apart

  38. Trying… thnx!

  39. Thank you for the unique tips!

  40. i have this problem that whenever i bought an air freshner, to me it seems like icant smell it, but i guess its bec of not cleaning the cabin filter… thanks to this video i now know that it should be clean too

  41. You can also use a car scent bomb you can get them at Walmart or any Automotive Center like AutoZone Meguiars makes one instead of it being a bug bomb you have a scent bomb and I suggest getting the new car scent it works fabulous

    1. Punctuation also works, bro.

    2. That’s covering smells. This video is about smell removing.

  42. The ac condenser is mounted in front of the radiator. The evaporator is what’s installed inside the hvac system.

  43. Nice video, keep up the good work 👍

  44. What if a dog did pee on the seat?

    1. There was something at Walmart called Urine Gone or similar. I lmao.
      Then it happened to me . . .

  45. =>

  46. How about…..don’t be a slob to begin with.

    1. How to fight depression. “Just don’t be depressed..”

    2. Exactly

  47. Which products do you recommend for cleaning and where can I get the hose attachment ?
    Also can I use Oust or Lysol ?

    1. You can use drops from an essential oil or whatever fresher you like.

  48. isnt the voice over from @ammonyc?

    1. When I saw this I was like, aren’t I already subbed to his guy?

    2. even the videos is by them

  49. you are hired for my future Bentley

  50. Great video

  51. Where is the attachment from? The one you have on the car refresher?

    1. Try using a drinking straw or use the nozzle supplied with a expanding foam can.

  52. Anyone know what air vent cleaner he was using specifically?

    1. I use Ozium which is at Walmart, auto stores, Walgreens. It has an actual air disinfectant in it, so it really helps with the musty moldy smell that air conditioners can get. I recognized the smell in hospitals too when rooms are getting disinfected between patients. You don’t want to breathe the stuff too much yourself, even though it has a nice sweet smell. I spray it in the air conditioner intake, then run the a/c on recirculate for a few minutes with the doors closed and the windows up, while I wait outside the car.

    2. You can use drops from an essential oil. What he’s using is nothing special.

  53. The french fry in the back is making my car stink…. oops

  54. 1. Don’t smoke in your car
    2. clean up after yourself each time you leave your car
    3. clean your car weekly, a vacuum, brush down and even a spritz of carpet cleaner will go a long way.
    4. wipe down the interior with APC, as long as you don’t use harsh APC or a diluted APC and wipe down the residue afterwards then your interior won’t mind it too much.
    5.Get rid of stains as soon as possible, get a scrubbing brush and carpet cleaner then go to town after you vacuumed out your car.
    6. Don’t use air fresheners, if you have to then my advice is to grind up the air freshener, put it in a coffee filter and run water over it into a spray bottle, spritz that under the floor of the drivers and passenger seats… heat rises and so do smells

    Do not do the lick test, not only does it not work but I don’t think you should be licking the exhaust pipe of your car, there are some parts of the car that get hot, such as under the carpet of the front passenger compartment is the catalytic converters, trust me on this they run hot by design and transfer the heat.

    1. GOOD INFO ….GREAT INTENSIONS…. LACK OF EXECUTION …THANKS

    2. So what exactly will hanging the air freshers up do besides make the car smell nice? My friend did say it makes the car stink after the air freshener dies but I thought he was just talking shit

    3. Happy Fox wppp

  55. I wish this guy could detail my expedition.
