Working on it! I think he got the hint when I kept chucking his socks at him while we were cleaning house. He'* also started leaving his stinky workboots in the entryway instead of...right next to his pile of socks.

Again, can't complain too much...I was gone Saturday for most of the day, and came home to about five clean loads of laundry!

I know I'm late.

First thing you do is hit it with Tuff Stuff if you want to clean all the smell and dirt out of anything.

Even 5 month old egg nog in carpeting of a car.

If you consider Febreeze as an alternative to doing laundry, you might be a redneck....

(The Missus made that one up. And that'* all the story you get about it)

CarraScent.......Works for everything Fabreeze and such wont hide, used alot in my Cabs and Limo'* I ran over the years. It'* actually for use in morgues, funeral homes and such. At most Medical Supply Houses or online at

www.carringtonlabs.com

It is an odor eliminator not just a perfume mask. Works well where the others fail. Not only will it work on his socks......hit 'em in the eyes with it as you do the socks.... he'll get the message.

Venom, I think that'* my next step. I just got the skinny from him on what REALLY happened...he left the windows down in the pouring rain, soaked through my seats. >.< My seats are, more than likely, ruined. I won't cry too much...I wanted bucket seats anyway (not until he'* done with my truck!), but will be trying to kill the odor in the interim.

If it'* mildew, it'* near the surface where it can breathe. Steam cleaning it should help dramatically. (the seats)

Any idea how much it runs to rent a steam cleaner?

Nothing. I own one. Drive it over here. Last thing I used it on was lilpooky'* 96 Neon that had the same problem from a leaky window seal.

Some DIY car washes actually have them near the vacuums. Or you can rent a rug doctor from your local grocery store, but make sure you have a hose attachment setup.

Otherwise, just find someone that owns one you can borrow. Alot of people have the Green Machine or a Bissel from Costco these days.

Solved Kim'* smelly Neon problem in short order (and fixed the window).
