A Cheap Way To Make Your Car Smell Fresh!

My car usually has a less-than-fresh smell.

Okay--more often than not, it's an absolute pigsty.

I discovered a clever "scent solution" on my way home from a yard sale today. I picked up (slightly used) Yankee jar candle from the free box and popped it in the cup holder for transport.

Next time I got in my car, mmmmm!

The trapped heat had softened the candle, releasing the wonderful fruity smell into the air. I still have to clean out the crumbs and gym shoes, but at least I won't have buy one of those pine tree things from the nearest truck stop.

Stores now have "candle Warmers" for sale around 4-5$ that you set your glass jar candle on and the heat emits the scent, instead of burning it to do so, same effect obviously.

BRAIN STORM THANKS TO about for us nonsmokers, THE ashtray GASP PH BUG EYED FACE. i read your idea and i thought about sticking a spare votive candle somewhere....out of sight so the kids wouldn't play with it, and then i had this vision of melted wax in the glove box or something EEK, so then i was trying to think what to put it in......and my empty ashtray came to mind. i used to keep change there until my 3 yo at the time took a quarter out and put it in the cd player (that bug eyed face again) most have removable dishes, so they could be heated and changed. and if the smell is too strong with the ashtray open.....close about that. thanks so much for this idea and i will let you know how it works
God Bless Your Day
PS......i hate those pinetrees.....rather smell gymshoes and crumbs
