    I use these little room sprays from Bath and Body Works. One spray when leaving the truck and they last about a year.

    Here you go its made by Citrus Magic the scent is sea breeze linen. It cost around 5-6 bucks at walmart. I have tried multi air fresheners and the liquid style evaporate off really fast in high heat or in sunlight. This seams to work the best for me.

    I always put vanilla scent stuff in my truck, always had that smell ever since i got her. the wet okole neoprene smell killed it but now its getting better. FYI dont use those things that clip onto your air vents and have a bottle of scenty liquid, it doesnt work.

    Dont use this, the air freshener in the air vent

    Yeah that stuff is the best. That is the Cs-X3 by Eikosha. I prefer the smaller one though. The Giga Clip.


    You can find them at most Asian markets.
    Or online just search

    If the inside of the car is clean, I have an Ozone generator I purchased for about $150 that I leave in the car for about 15 mins with the vent recirculating. It will get rid of and prevent a lot of odors and I use it to remove mildew/mold/odors in the house as well.

    I use a "My Dear Watson" Scent Circle from Scentsy, and not just because my wife sells them. It smells great and lasts a long time...I hang it mine from the "Oh Shit" handle on the driver's side rear.

    I don't use any of the commercial stuff, just shampoo the mats and carpet if it needs it, and keep the seats nice and clean. I do have a tiny bottle of spearmint essential oil, and one drop of that on a bar coaster in the bottom of a cup holder will last a few days with a light minty scent. It's very very light, just like someone is chewing spearmint gum in the truck. My wife and I are both fairly sensitive to strong odors, and that's just the right amount to not set off the sinuses and headaches.
