Default My car reeks!

I have noticed in the past week for some reason my car smells like *** inside. I have no clue why. To my knowledge I haven't pooped myself in it. Does anyone know of a good product I could use to get it smelling better?

Give it a good shampoo. Use a nice scenty detergent too.

You're sick Kyle. Just sick.

That leaky rear window seal got me. I got pissed, and after I re-sealed it, I drilled four little holes in my spare well. Just in case.......let 'er drain.

when my car smells like *** or i my hands slip from all the oils, i use this shampoo called "Tuff Stuff". it srays on, then bubbles up. i normally rub it in, let it sit for a few minutes then wipe it down good with a cloth, the cloth soaks up all the nasty stuff the shampoo brings up. Then let it sit in the sun to dry out good

Don, One thing I can say about my stock 92 the trunk seals must be tighter than Dick'* hatband because the trunk is as dry as a bone yard. I thought I might have issues after putting the spoiler on but I don't. I even ran a full stream over the trunk and no leaks. Sometimes I will throw a box of baking soda in the cabin leave it for a few days and it seems to absorb the odors.
