    In the past, I would buy a $20 air freshener bomb that you dropped in a tin that would nuke your car for several hours. However, I can't remember the name of it. Cleo? Neo?

    I was turned on to it by a rental car company and I can't find it in my Amazon orders.

    Can anybody recall the name?

    First, Have you fixed the source Of the wet smell? Could be 3rd brake light leaking. I had that issue (along with many others). Fixed by dealer for free.

    Once you get that fixed, Just dry it out with a dehumidifier and it’ll be all good. Spray a little Febreeze and enjoy the freshness.

    I think Dilbert found what I needed! I do remember it wasn't in a can though, they probably updated their product. It has been years since I had the need.

    Thank you all!
