First clean the carpets, use a good foaming carpet cleaner work it in with a stiff bristle brush and then vacuum when dry, then I use an ozonator, the unit I have it takes about a week to get it all out cause its small. You might be able to rent a larger one. HTH


After cleaning I would buy an open box of Arm and Hammer baking soda in the car to absorb odors. You will never get all the smell out. Airing the car out a lot will also help.


Don't forget the headliner when you clean the car!


You have tobe really careful cleaning headliners as they fall apart if you use the wrong cleaner on them, if it's not dirty don't do anything to it just let the ozonator do it thing first. And I did find some small compact units that plug into the power port, these are really small but cam help keep orders down after you get it cleaned out with the bigger unit, my next door neighbor was looking for some for his wife's car she has a problem with odors like gas, smoke, oil fumes and he says these really help her. So might be something to consider once you get it cleaned up.


i get this stuff in a spray bottle called odorban just spray down the entire interior like its febreez the stuff works amazing


I tried that stuff a few years ago on a rig that had bad Mary Jane odors, it didn't work, maybe they have changed the formulation by now.
