This is probably going to sound pretty crazy, but it has worked for me... Two things will help eliminate/replace bad odors - vanilla (REAL) and coffee grounds (fresh ground is the best). I have saturated a cotton cloth with vanilla and placed it on or in a plastic bag under a car seat. Overnight the smell is much better. Similarly, coffee grounds can be placed in a mesh bag and put under the seat of the car. Much better smelling car in just a few hours. I like doing the coffee grounds treatment first for a week and then the vanilla. Has worked great for me in several bad smelling cars. \ Mike Teeples / Salt Lake City, Utah '90 SPG - 150k miles '87 Turbo - 187k miles - retired '85 Turbo - 278+k miles - RIP On 1 Oct 2006 20:29:25 -0700, "Al" <ACHURCHnospamL.COM> wrote: >my saab was transported form the east coast to Denver 2 weeks ago. upon >arriving via enclosed truck there is a HORRIBLE odor. i can liken it >mostly to crayons, but it smells rather toxic/unhealthy. it just is >there unrelated to the car being on or off. any ideas of what that may >be????
