Default GM Odor eliminator

Thought this might be of interest to some...

Info - Eliminating Unwanted Odors In Vehicles #00-00-89-027A - (01/16/2002)
Eliminating Unwanted Odors in Vehicles
2002 and Prior Passenger Cars and Trucks

This bulletin is being revised to change the product name, ordering information and usage. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 00-00-89-027 (Section 00 -- General Information).

New Product Release
A new product has been tested which may control or eliminate odors in the interior and luggage compartment areas of GM vehicles. GM Vehicle Care Odor Eliminator (formerly Atmosklear Heavy Duty Odor Eliminator) is a non-toxic, biodegradable odor remover. This odorless product has been shown to greatly reduce or remove objectionable smells of mold and mildew resulting from vehicle water leaks (as well as customer created odors, i.e. smoke) You may use GM Vehicle Care Odor Eliminator on fabrics, vinyl, leather, carpet and sound deadening materials. It may also be induced into HVAC modules and instrument panel ducts (for the control of non-bacterial related odors).


Important
This product leaves no residual scent and should not be sold as or considered an air freshener. Product action may result in the permanent elimination of an odor and may be preferable to customers with allergies who are sensitive to perfumes.


How to Use This Product
GM Vehicle Care Odor Eliminator may be sprayed on in a ready-to-use formula or used in steam cleaners as an additive with carpet shampoo. This water-based, odorless product is safe for all vehicle interiors. Do not wet or soak any interior surface that plain water would cause to deteriorate, as this product will have the same effect. Also avoid letting this product come into contact with vinegar or any acidic substance. Acid-based products will hamper the effectiveness of, or render GM Vehicle Care Odor Eliminator inert. Instructions and cautions are printed on the bottle, but additional help is available. If you encounter a difficult to eliminate or reoccurring odor, you may call 1-800-955-8591 (in Canada, 1-800-977-4145) to obtain additional information and usage suggestions.


Important
This product may effectively remove odors when directly contacting the odor source. It should be used in conjunction with diagnostic procedures (in cases such as a water leak) to first eliminate the root cause of the odor, and then the residual odor to permanently correct the vehicle condition.

My odour went away on its own.

I finally fugured out why it was happening to mine.
I always left the A/C auto all the time. It never dried out and this caused mold to grow.
Now I leave it off most of the time.....until the temps are real warm (no coments from Taylor ) or I need the defrost.

That could be useful to get rid of that nasty vanilla scent in some cars.

"Mom, do you ever have that 'not so fresh feeling...?"'



Actually, since I am a smoker, I could probably use a case of this stuff....
