If your car is full of icky smells you don’t need to buy some chemical laden tree freshener. Try the following instead:
- Start with a clean car. When you let dirt build up, it gets dusty and gross. For quick cleaning use non-toxic natural cleaning wipes and a more natural car fabric care cleaner. You can also use Eco Touch Odor Eliminator or Earth Friendly Products Stain and Odor Remover, both of which are less toxic than other cleaners and work well.
- Grab a small cloth bag and fill it with a handful of dried lavender buds, a dash of nutmeg, and a sprinkling of essential oil (orange, lavender or lemon is good). Place the bag under the seat of your car.
- Get a little travel sized spray bottle. Fill it with water and a few drops of organic essential oil. Spray it on your car’s carpet. I would not spray it elsewhere, because essential oils can leave stains.
- Buy some cedar blocks or rings or sachets and place them under your car seats.
