Cigarette smoke is one of the most potent and hard to remove odors in vehicles. Smoke is difficult to remove from cars because it penetrates upholstery, carpet, hard surfaces and it infiltrates the air system. The good news is, whether you would like your car to smell like new, you’re selling your used car, or you’re buying a used car from someone that smoked, the potent smell of smoke can be removed. A lot of products mask the odor of smoke, but Turtle Wax Power Out! products eliminate smoke at its source. First things first, to remove smoke in a car all hard and soft surfaces should be vacuumed. The smoke particles and fallen ash seep and release odor into carpets, upholstery and vents until they are removed.
Vacuuming carpets, seats, dashboards and vents will pick up the odor particles and ash and will allow you to properly remove the smoke. Another common culprit of smoke odors in vehicles is the ash tray. Remove the ash tray to wash it out and allow it to air out for 24 hours. The final step to remove smoke in your vehicle is to use both the Turtle Wax Power Out! Odor-X Odor Eliminator & Refresher Spray and the Turtle Wax Power Out! Odor-X Whole Car Blast. Turtle Wax’s Odor-X technology seeks and destroys odors at the molecular level for up to 30 days. Odor-X technology is the best way to eliminate smoke in the vehicle because it eradicates smoke odors on all surfaces of the car. The Turtle Wax Whole Car Blast is an Odor-X concentrated fogger in a can that refreshes every surface of the car and will circulate deep into vents to remove odors.
For the Whole Car Blast to reach deep into vents and car surfaces, turn on the car’s air conditioning to the maximum level and turn on the air recycle feature. Place the can in a cup holder or on the floor of your car and firmly press down on the valve to release the automatic mist. Leave the car and allow it to run for 15 minutes. The Whole Car Blast will enter the air vents, penetrate hard and soft surfaces and will leave a Fresh New Car Scent. For a quicker smoke removal solution use the Turtle Wax Power Out! Odor-X Odor Eliminator & Refresher Spray. Spray the Odor-X Eliminator & Refresher onto carpets, upholstery and hard surfaces to destroy smoke particles. To remove smoke in the car’s vent system, adjust the nozzle to the Jet-stream setting and spray directly into vents. The Power Out! Odor-X Odor Eliminators & Refresher spray will continue to work for weeks and will leave a Fresh New Car Scent. Use the spray as needed to remove smoke from vehicles.
