How to get smell out of cab

Guys I think I spilled some boiled shrimp juice in my truck. The next day it smelled like a garbage can. What do I do?

What did you spill it on? If one of the mats take it out and wash it good and let it sit in the sun. Maybe use one of the automotive carpet cleaners. If it's on the seat...well, you might as well just set it on fire and carry on.

This is what I have done before for boiled crawfish juice in back floor. I have the small Mean Little Green steamer cleaner (cleaner has bissell per odor remover)and got all juice up. I had to do this a few times and it finally went away. When not using truck I would cut a lemon in half an place it in the vehicle. Lemon absorbs all odors. Just my .02 cent on what I have tried.

Get a large bowl. Fill it with distilled white vinegar and leave it in your truck overnight or throughout the day with the windows rolled up.

That has taken the worst of the worst cigarette stench out of my other car's fabric and carpet after loaning it to my **** of an ex-mother-in-law for a weekend.

This but I've put two medium sized towels in bowls or similar and soak the towels in vinegar. I would do one in the front and one in the back on the floor. At least 24 hours in the sun all closed up should do it.

Come on man don't be stupid. You just want it to sit for 24hrs total. AS MUCH SUN AS YOU CAN.

Edit. Not meant to sound rude. But you got what I meant.

My sister used to pick up old furniture and resell. She would douse them in white vinegar and it would smell like crap for a day, but after that, absolutely no smell at all. When my kid spilled choclate milk all over my back seat in the summer time, it was a horid smell. So I did the vinegar thing and that took care of it. When ever I rent a carpet shampooer, I don't waste my money on it's products, I just buy a ton of white vinegar and cut it 50/50 with hot water. White vinegar works wonders.

I've heard about the vinegar in a bowl one and it does probably work, but just another sugggestion from my own experiences.

Get a good size newspaper and ball up every page. Leave them in the cab for a day/night. Somehow it works really well. Also a great tip for gym bags and shoes too.

How about renting a steam cleaner to really hit the bad spot and cleaning your whole truck while you're at it.
