Default Leather?

If you have leather interior, I found that cleaning and conditioning with Zymol brings back some of that clean/newer car smell. When I do the seats in my Subaru my will typically comment that my '05 still smells new.

I like the smell of silicone spray. When I redid the seat leather all of the foam was sprayed with it and it smells new to me. Detail the truck with various cleaners. My favorites are the Mequires leather cleaner/conditioner and the Meguires plastic cleaner stuff. When I am done, I leave the rags under the seat and let them dry with the windows closed. The hotter the day the better. Run the A/C with the windows up as well, it seems to help.

I have heard Ozium is the best for removing smells and saw that Oriley carries it now.

Very small amounts of turpentine will make grease stains disappear, make sure to test in a hidden area first but I use it on all my carpets without any issues.

When one of my dogs had explosive diarrhea in my rig - yes, really - after the basic soap & water cleaning I used a few boxes of baking soda - sprinkle, let sit for a week, and vac - and Oxyfresh pet deodorizer. Rig has never smelled so nice.

Rub some mandle wax of your choice over the dash.

Sorry, couldn't resist the funny part of this thread.

Ok for the real response, febreeze it.

First of you have a order you need to genrid or it. Then keep the truck clean. And as for a pleasant odor what I've found to work the best is a good bar of soap, which ever is your preferred brand. Then open it and put it under the seat. It smells nice and not over welming. If your worried about it melting. Mine never did "key west Florida, windows up" but just put it on a paper plate It also lasts longer than a Autozone thingy. When it starts to not smell as strong. Just cut or shave some off for smaller bits. And wolla, like new
