Put charcoal inside the car to absorb the smell.

You can buy the charcoal from Daiso

I might send my car to thoroughly clean the air con system inside. The fragrance already stuck inside the system. The source is from inside..

I'd try to find a place that can steam clean the interior of the car.

Especially the seats.

Steam kills the bacteria which also cause bad smell.

 

If you have any artificial perfume or car fragrance, get rid of it.

They are VOC, gets into your lungs and who knows what damage it'll do to your body in the long term.

 

The best smell in your car is NO SMELL. That means, it's clean !

 

Same as for laundry. The best detergent doesn't make your clothes smell. Clean means no smell.

if a used car came with overly strong air freshener smell inside, I will suspect someone trying to mask something

 

muddy smell from a flood damaged car

pets pang sai pang jio in the car
