Possible to get rid of cigarette smell in old cars?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of bidding for an auction car. Some of the cars, although quite new, has intensive smell in the interior. I am not sure if it is cigarette smell. Are there anyone providing service to get rid of this smell? I think it is too much to ask for new car smell... :)

 I tried a product called AirVidox last summer. Completely removed the smell of cigarette odour in my old WV.

I was very sceptical about the results from this, but it worked AWESOME. I bought a used car that smelled like an ash tray. I tried air fresheners, Fabreeze, Lysol.... Nothing was a permanent solution to the cigarette smoke odor.

Possible by using pandan leaves or parking in the sun with the doors and windows open

2 known products for this. Meguairs and Sonax. I have used the former, bought the latter and haven't used yet.

It works!
