Smelly Truck!

I have had one of the fold up full 5 gallon water container in the back of my AC. About a week ago I was going to the store, took a corner to fast parked jumped out and did some shopping. When I cam back there was a water fall coming out of my truck! I guess it spilled about 3.5 gallons of water in the back drivers side. Now my truck smells like moldy old water! How do I get the smell out?

Spill 3.5 gallons of Fabreze.

I'd dry it, get a dehumidifier if you can and run it for a few days. Then have a detailer go through the interior and clean the hell out of it.

Most high-end detailing shops have an ionizer that may work well for getting that stink out, but in the case of water, just getting it dried well is the key.
