248/366 | The Smelly Car

September 05, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday I was so excited to get my repaired and fumigated car back from the mechanic. They had assured me they could find no animal carcass, but removed a ton of droppings and sprayed deodorizer inside and out. I started the car and immediately was let down. IT STILL SMELLS!! I called the service manager from my car in the parking lot explaining the situation. He double-checked with the mechanic and confirmed that they did use deodorizer, so he suggested either a bag of charcoal or box of baking soda and leave the windows down for a while.

I made a beeline to Home Depot and first located rodent deterrents to stick under the hood of my car. Found it! Then I went to the cleaning aisle and found this spray called Ozium. It looked like it could handle tough smells. Then I purchased Febreeze clips for each vent in my car. Out of all the products purchased, the Ozium seems to be the most effective. I highly recommend this product to freshen any areas where a problem odor exists.

As a former Seinfeld fan, I couldn't help but remember The Smelly Car episode. That episode made me literally LOL. A valet with body odor left a terrible stench in Jerry's car and the scent attached itself to anyone inside the car and stayed with them long afterwards. Here are some memorable lines:

Jerry: So when somebody has B.O., the "O" usually stays with the "B".

Once the "B" leaves, the "O" goes with it.


Jerry: So, this morning I go down to the garage to check the car out. I figure by this time, the odour molecules have had at least twelve hours to de-smellify. I open the car door, like a *punch* in the *face*, the stench hits me-- it's almost as if it had *gained* strength throughout the night...


Kramer: What's that smell?

Jerry: What smell?

Kramer: Ooooh... You stink.

Jerry: Whatd'ya mean I stink?

Kramer: You *stink*. Why don't you go take a shower?

Jerry: I showered! Oh, wait a second... Since I showered, I've been in the car!

Elaine: So?

Jerry: Don't you see what's happening here? It's attached itself to me! It's alive!

Elaine: If it attached itself to you, then... Oh, my God! That's why Carl said he had to get up early! Because I stink! Jerry, he thinks I have B.O.! Me!


George: What is that? B.O.?

Jerry: Yeah.

George: This is *unbelievable* B.O.

Jerry: I know... I was at the car wash this morning and the guy told me in his 38 years in the business, he's never smelled anything like it.


Jerry doles out his $250 and gets in the April-fresh car..

Jerry: Wait a minute! It still smells! It still smells! (This was me yesterday)


Jerry: I'll tell you what I'm gonna do, I'm selling that car!

George: You're *selling* the car!?

Jerry: You don't understand what I'm up against. This is a force more powerful than anything you can imagine. Even *Superman* would be helpless against this kind of stench. And I'll take anything I can get for it.

George: Maybe I'll buy it.

Jerry: Are you crazy? Don't you understand what I'm saying to you? This is not just an odour--you need a *priest* to get rid of this thing!


Elaine: I still smell!

Jerry: You see! You see what I'm saying to you? It's a presence! It's the beast!

If only Jerry had known about Ozium.
