    iv almost no sense of smell so it doesnt bother me but my youngster workers reckon my van absolutely reeks inside .

    im thinking that,over time,dirty water has been spilt in the back and has settled in crevices ,then dried and humming properly ,like rotten eggs

    any of you guys managed to rid your car or van of a stink? if so let me in on how you did it

    hmmm...i am afraid it defo goes with the job....i am always leaving a damp cloth in me pocket and it dont half stink over the weekend in the summer....

    it hasnt been too bad of late as i just take all me damp dirty cloths in every night but not a lot i can do with my applicator...i was a bit embarrassed when i went to an inside on my first job monday as it does stink...and you cant get rid....i may have to start bringing the sleeves in too..

    not to mention....our normal wet weather ...which hasnt been bad of late...jump in the car wet and watch the car steam up ..thankgod for air conditioning..:D

    Hide it with a 'stick up' style air freshener.

    cheers for that tip Davey . will lace the insides + roof etc with that - maybe even get a plug in febreze and run it thru a mains converter , attack as we drive as it were

    Ever tried using febreeze on a carpet after one of the kids has puked on it? :eek:
     
  8. Leave cups of salt to draw moisture out of the air? Might help.
