My Dad use steam cleaner to remove stain off head liner on his 01 F250. It amazing how it get 3 year to turn grey to brown stain. He done 3 times in 10 years.


1 way is do steam cleaner if you have one. Then spray with febreeze then let window open for fresh air for couple days.

Then change cabin air filter you be amazing how dirty on it.

I smoke in my car. I use the ashtray too, since I don't like littering, and my car doesn't reek of smoke.

Your parents sound like they're real nasty people. I wonder what they look like.

I don't know, hopefully they at least look halfway decent to make the girl that's in her avatar.

theres a cheaper ozone fix. its a tub of ozone you open up in your car over night and it takes every smell out completley. you cannot breath it in directley too much though it will kill you so i have been told.

I'm starting to think that I might have to get my car detailed, but I feel like being super-stingy with my money...

Anyone know of any simple like, home remedies that could get the smoke smell out of my car?
Cover the upholstery and carpet with baking soda and let it sit overnight before vacuuming. Do this several times.

Wash EVERYTHING PLASTIC inside the jeep with a good citrus-based degreaser.

Also, get the cheapest coffee BEANS you can find, grind them up and put them in 4 bowls. Let the bowls sit equally distributed in the jeep overnight. The coffee WILL NOT mask the stench, it will actually pull odors out of the air.

All else fails, rent an "ozonator" from a rental shop and let it sit in there for a few days.

Scrub down the dash and steering wheel too, spray some febreeze down the vents and AC ducts.

Smokers cars suck, I used to detail cars. Those ozone machines sound easier.
Do NOT scrub the headliner with any solvent based cleaners. It can eat through the adhesive and cause your headliner to sag. The safest way to clean the headliner is with a bucket of warm water and a non solvent based soap. I made this mistake on one of my old trucks.

You think your car doesn't reek of smoke, but I think your sniffer isn't sensitive to that nasty smell like it should be. Smokers always think they smell/taste better than they really do.

I work at a detail shop, 99% of your smoke smell will be coming from the headliner. If you're lookin to save a buck, find a good detail shop and ask them just to clean the headliner.

You can rent ozone machines, some shops will rent theirs out, we used to but it doesn't work really well anymore so I suggest a place called Industrial Cleaning supply, look 'em up if you wish, they're located in waterford kindof behind the ABC harley dealer on M-59 and pontiac lake road.

Those are your two best bets. Also, like Matt (bluethunder) said there is another ozone treatment that just recently came out it's literally a clear plastic cup like a beer pong cup that you fill an inch with water and drop the packet in it, it smokes up (it's almost like a bug bomb for your house) and I can tell you it takes out the smell. it leaves your car with a chlorine swimming pool smell almost that will eventually disipate as well

a good "do it yourself" trick for the headliner. we use an aerosol interior cleaner and spray the entire headliner with it, then use an aircompressor with am ait gun that has a fancy flat tip and blow all the crud out. Another way to get similar results is take an empty spray bottle and fill with with hot water and put a little bit of tide or whatever laundry detergent in it, spray your headliner down liberally and take a couple clean towels and wipe it. if you're using a white towel it will turn black/brown immediatly. This will not take it out 100% but it will get a lot of it out and will leave your car smelling laundry fresh if anything! :D

I would just take a huge dump in the back seat. Eventually the smoke smell will go away.
