Although this is car related, the odor was caused by critters around
my house. I live in the country on the edge of the woods so I have
lots of critters such as squirrels, chipmunks and of course field
I have a small car that was sitting on the side of my garage over the
winter covered with a car cover. But it appears that some kind of
critter gained entrance and made it his/her winter resort.
I didn't take it out of storage until late spring this year and on the
interior there is a pet-like odor. Not extreme but enough that when
driving it is unpleasant.
I've cleaned the entire vehicle, including the interior and steam
cleaned the engine compartment, wheel wells and undercarriage. But
the odor persists.
Short of using a match, does anyone have any ideas or folk remedies
that might be employed in an attempt to quell this odor?
I've been storing this car during the winter the same way for 12 years
now and this has been the first year that this has occurred. So, on
that note, I'd appreciate any ideas as to what I may be able to do
next winter to keep these undesireables out of the resort?
Thanks all (written with a clothes pin on my nose)
