    Had a bottle of perfume brake in the wife's car, what is the best way to get the smell out.

    Carpet or seat I'm guessing.
    Steam clean. May require a few times.

    Then there is something car detailers use to get rid of cigarette smell from cars.
    Someone here must know what it is.

    Good luck.
    Or she could trade it in for a new one.

    :)

    Ahh crap.
    That means it probably leaked down under console.
    Time heals all wounds.

    A fan and a lot of moving air. Most perfumes are alcohol based so they will evaporate pretty fast. Clean out as much as you can and put a fan in the car, windows down and let it sit outside if possible. If it has a sunroof put a box fan on the roof blowing down on the console.
    Do not ask me how I know all this... o_O

    Small ozone generator.....used alot in hunting to get rid of human scent on clothing. I've read that some people have had success using them in cars also.

    No sympathy here. I have been trying to get rid of a mouse piss smell for 2 years. Time is working though. I was almost ready to let the old lady smoke some butts in there. Ozium is as good as anything though. I use it all the time to keep the skunk smells down.

    Thank you for all the ideas. Been leaving the windows down already. Will try both the fan and ozium.
