How to get a smell out of your car seats?

What's a good way to get a smell out of your car seats? My cat peed all over the back of my car and now it stinks!

Answer
Cat pee is the worst and incredibly stinky! Thankfully, to get almost any smell out of your car seats, all you need to do is clean them with white vinegar!
White vinegar can get rid of almost any odor and it’s better for you than many artificial cleaners. All you need to do is:
  • Mix one part white vinegar with two parts water in a spray bottle.
  • Spray the seats thoroughly.
  • Wait a few hours for it to dry and check whether the odor is gone.
  • If the smell is still there, spray it again!
This process should eventually get rid of the odors. But if it doesn’t, you can always try other methods. Here are some of the best home remedies for a stinky car:
  • Place a bowl of baking soda or coffee in the car and close all the windows.
  • Vacuum all surfaces and leave the windows open for a few hours.
  • Sprinkle baking soda over the carpet. Let it sit for a few hours, then vacuum it all up.
If none of these methods work, then it may be time to hand your car over to a professional. While detailing jobs can be expensive, there’s nothing worse than driving around in a smelly car. But if the price is an issue, you can always offset the cost by saving on car insurance with Jerry.
