It's confession time.
My car stinks. I mean, it's a great car, and I love it, but it smells.
The smell is partly due to
my kids Grace treating the back seat like her personal locker/trashcan/junk drawer (smelly shoes, sweaty clothes, used napkins, toys, books, you name it) and partly due to the humidity of summer and I don't know what else.
It might also have something to do with my forgetting a wet diaper or a stale drink now and then.
In addition, we live in a ruralish area in Pennsylvania. There are a lot of farms, and (if you don't already know this) farms sometimes smell like manure. And Pennsylvania is pretty much one big road construction zone in the spring, summer, and winter.
In short, I was not surprised to learn that the air inside my car is probably six times dirtier than the air outside.
No wonder it stinks.
About two weeks ago, Joe installed a FRAM Fresh BreezeÃ‚® cabin air filter in my car. The installation process took about ten minutes, and he said it was pretty easy. Neither of us realized that my car already had a cabin air filter, nor that it should have been changed (um, ever). The old filter was gunky and disgusting.
The next day, I didn't think about the filter.
The second day, I drove through a construction zone with dust all over the place and didn't notice.
A few days later, I realized the car didn't smell like anything at all. Nothing! No funk, no stale manure, no stinky anything.
Every time I open the door, I marvel at the lack of smell. It's a beautiful thing.
Just to be clear, the FRAM Fresh Breeze filter doesn't perfume the car or remove my kids' funky stuff, but it does filter out 98% of dust, dirt, and allergens that enter through the ventilation system. It also uses Arm & HammerÃ‚® baking soda to remove odors. Thus, my car smells like nothing, and I love it.
