How do you remove odors from a car's interior?

I drive for Uber sometimes, and my car can get so smelly after a late night. I drive all the time, and I want my car to smell good for my guests. How can I get rid of any smells that I pick up on my shifts?

A smelly car is never fun, especially when you’re driving all the time. To get that stench out of your car, try one (or more) of these fixes:
  • Vacuum everything– the floor, the seats, and any other surfaces that might have stray dog hair.
  • Sprinkle baking soda on stinky surfaces, wait at least 15 minutes, then vacuum it up.
  • Rent a steam cleaner.
  • Use a mild spray detergent to clean the interior.
  • Spray distilled white vinegar diluted with water onto smelly areas, although be careful not to use too much.
  • Try essential oils or an air freshener to mask any lingering stench.
If you’re driving all the time, you need a good car insurance policy. The Jerry app can collect car insurance quotes for you in a matter of minutes, so you can compare prices and coverages without wasting time or money.
