How to Make a DIY Car Air Freshener

Car Air Freshener

Let’s face it. That new car smell doesn’t last forever. Odors happen. You can clean your car diligently, but that doesn’t guarantee there won’t be a lingering aroma from the pizza and garlic knots you brought home for dinner last night. The last thing you need to deal with during your Chicago commute is a pungent reminder of your last car trip with the dog. Have you considered making your own DIY car air freshener? It’s easy! Just follow the simple instructions below for making a DIY air freshener.
