What's the best air freshener for a car out there that lasts a long time? Cabin filter is new btw.

Peppermint drops on cabin air filter to keep mouses away.

I have started to do that.

Two or three drops. Five drops will kill your note (maybe).

None. Don't use any to start with any you never have a need to cover up the old smells.

If you are trying to eliminate existing odors, the Turtle Wax and Meguiar's "car bombs" do a pretty good job. Again, I strongly suggest getting the scent free versions.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Meguiar-s-Whole-Car-Air-Re-Fresher-New-Car-Scent-2-0-OZ/36448452

Another option is odor absorbing gel. You can get this stuff and keep it in your car and it will absorb odors.

I'm not trying to cover up any odors, but I like a nice scent in the car. I like California Delights but those things don't last long. Just looking for suggestions.

Yankee Candle Turquoise Sky Car Jar. Smells good but not fruity. Cracker Barrell Restaurant country store is the only place I know of that sells them. They last about 2 months in my car. The Meguiars fogger types work well too. I set one off in my old Dodge Dakota and it lasted at least 2 or 3 months.

I use the "New Car Smell" atomized spray. It's the same technology as Febreeze, which itself derives from products introduced in the 80's to tame Dairy Barn smells. Just one or two sprays on the passenger seat upholstery usually does the trick for quite a while.

The green pine Little Trees are OK. Get compliments from Uber passengers all the time.

Ozium makes great products, you can also run the ac on recirculate and blast it into the passenger footwell for about 15 seconds to deodorize the heater box.

Since im in the car alone mostly,
I just throw a little arm and hammer
Carpet fresh powder( i like the jasmine one)
on a plastic mat in the back seat
It smells great for about a week.
Toss the powder out and replace as needed
