Default vehicle air fresheners?

I am constantly having to transport witnesses for work. Many times after they get out it smells like alcohol, weed or ghetto funk. What do some of you all use to keep your vehicles smelling fresh? I am not trying to accumulate the felony forest of pine trees hanging from my rear view. Whats are some tips and tricks you all use?

Chemical Guys Spray hands down. Spray it from time to time on the carpet and seats and then a couple squirts when stinky gets out.

I work at a paper mill and never smell too good when I leave. This is what I have found that works the best for me. Before I starting using these my truck always smelled like the mill

When I was a bail bondsman/recovery agent, I constantly had smelly individuals in my vehicle. The smell would linger for days sometimes. One guy ****** on himself in my back seat when I was hauling him back from Ohio. That was unpleasant. What always worked best for me was the small Bath & Bodyworks candles. I’d just stick one under each seat. They put off a lot of smell and they last a very long time. The Teakwood was a pretty neutral smell that wasn’t too over powering.

Ozone Generator, hospitals and hotels use them to defunk rooms. Several manufacturers in the hunting industry make them for vehicles now.

Start by replacing your cabin air filter, very simple and usually within or behind the glove box. I get the Febreeze or Gain scented filter. Dryer Sheets work too. I also found a container with gel filled beads at Walmart, put under the seat and it lasted a long time.

Had to toss a camera case after taking it in a two month old decomp claim.

I could faintly smell it for weeks, would get a whiff every now and then.

finally figured out the source and threw it out -- no more smell.

If you like leather smell, the chemical guys has a good smelling leather scent. I spray a few times on a paper towel I leave under the seats

On a serious note. I may try some of the chemical guys stuff. Or just open a container of Charlie’s blood bait and stick it under my seat. It’s hard to believe the hygiene of some people.
