Question Febreeze

Can anybody recommend this stuff? I just sprayed some on the seats (cloth) and the carpets. Truck smells great but Im wondering if this is just a product that covers up the smell or does it actually do what it says?

Stop drinking the beer and eatin' pickled eggs and you won't need to defume the seats.

Triton46, What smell are you trying to rid yourself of?

I own a carpet cleaning business and I can tell you what will work.

Febreeze, I don't like the stuff.

Beer and eggs...

Seriously though, nothing spilled or stained. The truck is 2 years old and smells a little musty. I hate airfresheners so thought Id try something to freshen it up. Do you know of anything that would work better?

I am not a pro detailer but I use the stuff on my cloth seat regular. I dont notice any of the old smells ever coming back, just new ones showing up! I hear its very harmful to pets though. So make sure it dries before you let your dog in the cab with you.

It is NOT harmful to pets.
There was some e-mail chain-letter that was started some months back stating so. I asked my Vet and he said it would not harm my pets.
I use it around the house and have had no problems. Haven't put any beer or eggs into the truck so I haven't used it there (yet )

Triton46,

More often than not a musty smell is from the A/C ducts. The absolute best thing for foul odors is an ozone generator but they are hard to find and usually for EXTREME cases. I would go to a janitor supply store and ask for either Microban or ODO-BAN. Microban is a hospital spray and works very well. ODO-BAN used to be sold at Sam's club I would look there first if you have one. ODO-BAN is very strong use it sparingly, diluted with water for sure. Be sure to spray the ducts and in the air intake outside below the windsheild (not on paint) and spray the seats and the carpet lightly and EVENLY to avoid water staining. That should be a good long term solution. Febreeze is a good concept but like all consumer goods like Scotchguard etc. is weak to avoid people killing themselves with it and sueing. If you have any further questions feel free to ask.

Febreeze does seem to do what it says, but the scent is a bit "flowery" for my tastes...Turtle Wax makes one called "Odor-X" that works very well, and has a much more pleasing scent - kinda "citrus-y." Febreeze's scent also seems to hang around for days - Odor-X's is gone by the next day, along with whatever odor you are trying to get rid of...

My $.02.

How about some of that 'Scent Killer' stuff deer hunters use to spray all over themselves to get rid of any and all human smell. That stuff has no smell whatsover.
Plus the fabreeze smell right away is a bit like flowers, but goes away pretty quick when dry.
