BBAP, no way man. I thought that too. here's what I did. I sprayed in my car(I'm a smoker) and I closed the windows, etc. car sat over night. morning came. no smoke smell at all. smoke is heavier than anything you can spray in your car. even febreeze won't totally get it out.Benz rider, that stuff does no more to remove smoke odor than chewing bubble gum. All that does is mask the odor with heavy perfumes that will dissapate and the smoke odor will be right back.
If you were able to look at smoke under a high powered microscope you would see that ti is actually comprised of very miniscule particles. It is these particles that embed themselves in the fibers of the headliner, seats and carpet. You have to clean these fabrics to remove the smoke residue or you will always find yourself spraying more perfumes mask the odor.
I dont have first hand experience with the ozone generator but I have read numerous good thinds about the successful removal of smoke odor.
The Pine trees in the can won't do that. the 'hanging' trees will because when your car heats up while you're at work the trees cover up the smell of everything. but the can trees don't last forever like that. and it won't stain or cover the smell of your leather seats. if your seats have been cleaned and conditioned with leather products, that leather smell will come back. mine always does. that's another reason I use it. the febreeze and other fresheners tend to cover up the smell of everything in the car too. so I agree with you, I want my leather smell. so I go for the Pine trees for getting the smoke odor out. Try it!:thumbsup:...I don't want my Mercedes-Benz to smell like a Pine Tree! I want it to smell like leather! So, even though there is no smoke odor in my cars, I do spray a "leather" type of spray to enhance the leather smell!
That does nothing except product a small amount of Ozone (which is very bad for your health). And Hotels generally don't have smoking rooms in the US anymore, and if they do, they keep then smoking. They are not flipped back and forth between non and 'let's light up'.Ionizing generator that fits in your lighter outlet....got mine at Target for 9 bucks....ionize the air.....the smoke molecules are gone. How do you think hotels turn a "smoking" room into "non-smoking" room?
The operative word with these posts is "clean the air ".sorry i think you might be referring to ionizing radiation...."negative ions" to which i am referring have no documented "ill" effects on health. In fact negative ions have actually helped some symptoms experienced by chronic lung patients and have even proved to raise "serotonin" levels in in vitro blood samples. I do agree that most hotels now are non smoking but a friend owns several hotels that do offer smoking rooms and use a much larger "active" ionizer to rapidly clean the air in smoking rooms.
Not quite, Ajax boy......read the posts, don't just come up with incorrect comments......
did somebody in here say they use leather conditioner spray as their air freshener?
This is what I use for Smoke Odors, Dog Odors, Urine Smells, Sneaker Odors or any other funk I can't stand.I just purchased a c230 and from the looks of it, the original oner never cleaned this car inside BUT smoked like a chimney.
I tried to air it out for some days now, leaving the windows down, but the smell is still strong, what can help???
