Types of Car Air Fresheners: Keep Your Vehicle Smelling Fresh and Clean Between Auto Details

car air freshenerIt’s easy for unpleasant odors to accumulate in an enclosed space like a car cabin. We have cleaned thousands of cars, and quite a few had interiors that smelled like cigarettes, old laundry, or dirty pet fur. We recommend that clients top off their car wash or auto detail with a car air freshener. This way, the vehicle smells just as clean as it looks. Fresheners come in different styles, some of which we will review.

Car Air Freshener Types at a Glance

Hanging cardboard

This is the most basic car fragrance and often included as a complimentary gift after a professional auto detail. These are the ones often in the shape of a fir tree that you hang from the rearview mirror. While they’re inexpensive, the scent only lasts for about a week. This is why they’re often sold in bulk.

Can-Style Fresheners

These come in a miniature tin similar to a can of cat food. Most brands use a gel-based scent. You can stick it right on the dashboard in place of or next to your beloved hula girl or bobble-head.

Vent Sticks

Vent sticks are clipped to the air vent. Air from the vent releases the scent. The end of the stick comes in various designs, doubling it as a miniature car décor.

Plug-In Fragrance

Plug this in your car’s adapter. The energy emanating from the power outlet releases the fragrance and freshens the entire cab. Most types have a built-in heat source that gives off a cool glow when activated. The scented oil capsule can be replaced with a refill. The plug-in unit itself however, can be reused.
