Removing Cigarette Smell from Your Car – Ford AU Fairmont Ghia

Does your car have a smell that you just can’t seem to get rid of? Today I’m having a crack at fixing exactly that. Did you that the smell in your car is mostly trapped in soft and porous surfaces, like the seats, carpets and also the headlining?

So if you want to remove these smells, you’ll need to look at all of these items – and either clean them thoroughly or replace them! Not a fun job, but well worth doing if you love your car and wish to fix the problem properly.

— About MotoringBox —
MotoringBox is an Australian based automotive news website & YouTube channel run independently by Sean McKellar since 2009. I began by covering popular motoring shows like The Grand Tour, Top Gear & Wheeler Dealers – but more recently I’ve started focusing on creating quality content about Australian car culture. I work a day job and publish videos in my spare time, so I’d like to apologise in advance for my slow release schedule! Thank you for your patience and I hope you enjoy my videos.
