Smoke smell

Me and my friends smoked in my car for the first time after prom this past weekend, and now it reeks of smoke and isnt seeming to go away. I was thinking bout just letting it air out and maybe shampooing the carpets... any other suggestions?

Don't forget to clean the fabric on the ceiling. Everyone forgets that.

Leave your windows down or cracked overnight, and drive with the windoes down for a day, the smell should go away. I smoke occasionally in my car, and it doesnt smell too much like cigs. If that doesnt work, get a crapet cleaner with hose extensions. Those are the best to get smells out, and have a brand new looking interior.

ya frebreeze auto....one spray one seat backs (front and back), seat bottoms (front and back), carpets, and a few sprays on the headliner and then just leave your windows cracked and/or your moonroof cracked for a few hours. youll be fine. also go get some tommy hilfiger scented trees from auto parts store or wal-mart, they smell so good for like a week then they go away, but u will never know u smoked in your car.

Ozium is the best product Ive ever tried in my life for smells. It will get rid of/cover anything up until you smoke again in it. but DO NOT sit in the car whileyou spray it, it probably has that warning as well. It is VERY VERY strong for about a minute or two, so be careful. You dont need much of it either. I like the new car smell, cuz it really will smell bomb like a new car.

Peace

to clean the headliner you have to get a regular terry towel and spray either glass cleaner, or fabric cleaner on the towell, then rub it in the headliner. Make sure its a foam cleaner

I wouldnt really be concerned bout the interior of ur vehicle when smoking. I would be concerned with the condition of ur lungs.

haha, yeah, for sure. I usually smoke a cig afterwards, if at all in my car. I dont mind herb, but cigs, I dont let anybody smoke in there.

let it air out for a few days

I don't get why the smell stunk... I don't smoke anymore but I bought a pack when I did a road trip this weekend and huffed back the entire pack while driving, and my car doesn't stink, nor did it stink after a few minutes of tossing the butt
