Cars tend to have low air quality due to driving in an environment of exhaust and other fumes, dust, etc. Is there anything that will help with this?
A few good tricks that use to deal with odors in a vehicle.
For cloth seats and carpeting: Spray bottle with vinegar and spray until seats and carpeting are moist. Then allow vehicle to sit in full sunlight. When dry everything will smell nice.
Floor mats: Use a power washer with water and one cup of vinegar.
The reason this works is because vinegar is a powerful anti-bacterial and disinfectant which most odor causing don't develop resistance to because of its acidity. Most life lives in a relatively narrow pH range. Of course there are exception to this rule (some deep deep underwater life ...OMG)
Many modern vehicles have a cabin air filter in the heating/ac system that can be replaced. These are often out of the way, so many people don't even realize that they have them. You can also scent this filter, or add a dryer sheet for scent.
Yes. An inexpensive ionizer that plugs in to the lighter socket will:
- remove fumes and dust from the air
- provide ions which increase alertness
Should only cost as much as dinner out and could save your life. After a year or so the metal surfaces that emit ions might get corroded and so can be scraped with the edge of a sharp knife to make them sharp and shiny again. These devices are widely available.
Similar devices can be used at home to remove cooking smells, pet odors, and make the air feel fresher. (These must be cleaned occasionally.)
