Simply turn on air recirculation (button looks like an arrow turning within a car) and use a steamer or spritz a spray near the vents. The vents will intake the steam or spray and carry it through the ducts and filters.
Replace the air filters to get the smell out
Behind most car’s glove compartments is one or more air filters that refine the cabin’s air.
Over time, odor and debris can accumulate in the filter — making it less effective.
If you’re noticing that the air coming from the vents or AC is stale, stuffy, or funky, I’d recommend replacing these air filters.
Replacing air filters is usually a simple task and new filters are relatively affordable, so don’t be intimidated!
I would purchase a replacement filter(s) from your local auto parts store. There, they can ensure that the filters you’re purchasing will fit your make and model.
Next, I would follow an online tutorial to see how you go about replacing the filters in your make and model. In my experience, the task only takes ten minutes and doesn’t require any tools.
Use a cleaner or cannabis deodorizing spray on the upholstery
The upholstery of your car can absorb cannabis smoke and other nasty odors.
If your fabric smells funky, I’d recommend using an upholstery cleaner and brush (tip: some upholstery cleaners include a brush on their dispenser).
Once you’ve got a cleaner, test it on a small spot of your upholstery to make sure it doesn’t discolor the material.
Then, take the time to spray and brush the rest of your upholstery. The cleaner will work to remove both odor and stains.
If you’re in a rush and don’t have time for the above, you can use a linen-safe deodorizing spray on your upholstery — but just like with the cleaner, I recommend you spot test it on a small area to test for discoloration.
After your next session, use a cannabis deodorizing spray
Other than choosing not to smoke in the car, you can stay on top of accumulating cannabis odor with a cannabis deodorizing spray.
I know what you’re probably thinking: does it actually work?
And I’m happy to say that we use a proven deodorizing agent, so our sprays eliminate odor by neutralizing specific organic molecules (like smoke odor!) and reducing their concentration
Plus, they feature safe ingredients that are safe for spaces, skin, and linens.
The lingering odor of cannabis odor can be difficult to strip from your car. But with the right methods, you can get your ride smelling funk-free. Target the upholstery, air vents, and air filters for a long-lasting freshness.
