What are some air fresheners you've tried that worked?

I use the Febreeze that clips to the air vent. It has an adjustment from low to max open. Max open is too strong. On low I barely smell it and it last for several weeks.

I don't used these, instead I keep my vehicles clean !!

Remember that if these air fresheners get in contact with the any part of the interior, they will damage it.

I have found that, if the vehicle's interior is kept clean, and if all of the passengers have good hygiene practices, there is no need to...odorize...the interior. Why would you want to introduce fumes that can be a health issue for asthmatics, and that can potentially be toxic for everyone?

This thing:


Billy Mays What-Odor? Odor Eliminator - YouTube

It does work. It actually works so well that I keep gallon of it at work, as I have all kinds of foul odors produced by my patients limbs and devices off them I am working with. Mof, I just sprayed entire office, as we had cadaver lab yesterday and place stunk when we walked in. So spray your car and be good for several months. Then simply respray. Also, eating and drinking inside your vehicle only adds insult to injury as food and droplets always soak into carpet and rot, attracting all kinds of insects etc.

The OP should read what the CDC has to say regarding room deodorizers vis-a-vis health:

CDC - Indoor Environmental Quality: Chemicals and Odors - NIOSH Workplace Safety and Health Topic

I agree with the hygiene statement but my dog doesn't.

Apparently my car stinks like dog and are there any natural odor eliminator? Vinegar? how do you place it in a car?

My vehicle is spotless and I still use an air freshener so your assumption that one does not keep their vehicle clean is completely wrong.

Personally I like the Black Ice tree but it is a bit strong for Mr. CSD in the front so I hang it on the hook at the back of the Suburban right inside the back doors. I also have a mini ionizer that plugs into the cigarette lighter and it is on all the time.

The frebreeze for the vent is okay when they are new but fade too quickly in my opinion.

This. But back in the day I used to love the Black Ice trees. Nothing like a freshly washed/waxed/detailed car finished with a new Black Ice tree

However, over the past few years i've not been into any scents, to the point that I use unscented soap, lotion, and NO perfume, air fresheners, etc
