yeah, i dont leave the vanilla in for too long. When it weakens some, you get a really nice scent. Vanilla is a natural aphrodesiac or whatever too (makes people horny). Why else would it be so popular?

I have kids and a dog. None of that would work for me.

They do have a new car smell though, kinda nice late at night... Anyone else got a way to get new car smell back?

well you could always... buy a new car?

Think the kids and the dog would put any air fresheners to shame? Not allowing food in the car helps.

I love new car smell. I've never bought those "New car smell" in a bottle. Not sure if it would be worth it. I clean my leather a lot and use the Armor all wipes and my car naturally smells good that way. My mom loves my car smell she always says.

Theres this stuff at walgreens or target (not at walmart) called Ozium that you spray and it smells funky for awhile but then it goes away and your car smells like nothing, just normal. its kinda pricy though, small aerosol can for 5.15

i'd be careful with the sprays not to get it on the leather (if equipped)

i'm still a firm beliver in carpet cleaning, leather cleaning, and armorall-ing to get my fresh scent.

This whole conversation is hilarious...

I spilled a latte on the front drivers' side floor of the bomber and now under certain conditions it smells like dirty feet. I've found that the hanging air fresheners work way better than anything else I've tried, for some reason...that and keeping the car cleaned and vacuumed...but no matter what I can't seem to totally get rid of the feet smell...maybe the malt liquor idea

Also, the sprays don't just seem to damage leather...they've left weird marks in my car, too, and I don't have any leather :( ...

Is vanilla really supposed to be an aphrodesiac?

we don't have Meijer, or A&P, or Piggly Wiggly or any other freaky north-of-the-mason-line stores, but Publix has this carpet deodorizer that you spray directly on the carpet, it foams up, and goes away and the car really does smell closer to "new car" than anything else I've tried. Although I do have a 2002:

1 it used to belong to Avis
2. I have 2 dogs
3. one kid
4. Friends that smoke
5. I eat in the car

I need to pick up some more, I'll let you know what it is exactly...unless of course you dont care...
