Any fresheners in your truck?

My truck smells sometimes for some reason. Not to long ago I really cleaned and wet vac-ed my seats but it still smells sometimes. What have you guys put on your seats to make them smell better? Like fabreeze or something. Any kind of air freshener? I don't want anything that makes it smell like a panzy or something. Just something that would make it smell better?

Not hijack the thread but you just made me think of what I do when I go to a motel if the room stinks. I dump a bottle of Febrezze in the A/C unit and turn it on high works everytime.

just fabreeze it stopped smoking and hated going in my truck for the first 2 weeks, but now the disguisting smokers smell is gone... now it just smells like dirt and if you cant smell it just smack my seats and you can get a good ole whif of Rampart Range... haha

I put the citrus slices from wal-mart in my truck. I love the citrus smell plus it has activated charcoal in it to absorb the oder (sp?). They are about $5 but they last at least 45 days or longer.

I bought my truck used so I had to wet-vac the whole interior twice to get rid of the smoker's smell. I did have a leather scent tree thing in my truck because I was curious how it smelled. Now my truck just smells like staming anti-freeze.

The best way I've found to get smells out was febreeze the seats/carpet/headliner and take ozium to the outside intake air vent and spray it on there with the heat on full blast.

but i've heard that baking soda works really good too if you pour it on the seats/ carpet but I haven't tried that.,

when i bought my truck it had never been washed in its 70,000 miles of existence so i took the seats out and pressure washed them lol. probably and extreme measure but the thing was gross. i did that took the rubber mat out and washed that and now i just run the black ice tree fresheners (for the ladies hahhaa). i get compliments on the smell inside my truck all the time.

Sometimes I have a Mossy Oak air freshener in the cab, but not to often. I usually keep one in the bed. It gets to smelling like rubber to much back there because of the full size spare tire.
