    Put a cup of white vinegar in the truck, close windows and turn heater fan on high. Usually will work quickly.

    That's awesome....I'll have to remember that one. I was gonna suggest Ozone treatment but I bet the coffee treatment was easier and cheaper:D

    Ask your dealership if they have a vendor that does ozone treatments.

    My son is a car salesman, and they have a vendor that has an ozone machine made specifically for this. You can leave your car there for 24 hrs, they will put the machine inside the car and let it sit while the machine generates ozone. After 24 hrs no more smells.

    I don't know what this costs but it works like a charm.

    I just threw 4 small homemade bags of coffee under my van seats. Had dryer sheets before and it seemed to help a little.
    we shall see.
    BTW: the ozone machine was making the guys sick in the shop from the smell. So we had them only do it outside. IMO it replaced a crappy smell with another crappy smell.

    Smoker can't smell how bad it truly is, it's worst then piss. My brother smokes and I make him change his shirt before sitting in my truck and even then i still smell it a day later. It's freakin gross!! It's not too bad if you smoke out doors it's the indoor smokers who stink like cat shit.

    You had to tell me twice? LOL. Do to the fact that I 99.9% of the time smoke outside, then I can smell it pretty good. My mom smokes in their house, and when I leave I can smell it on me, even though I smoke outside even when I'm there.

    Clean floor mats with hot water and tide. Wipe out interior with your favorite cleaner. Clean the windows. Sprinkle baking sode on carpets leave overnight with doors shut and windows up. Vacuum out the following day. Problem solved.
