Thumbs down Dog Smell!

Anybody got any ideas on how to get rid of the dog smell in a Durango? (Yeah I know get rid of the dog!) I've got a chance to make a great score on a Durnago, but it's been professionally detailed, and it STINKS! I know somebody out there has had this problem, and has a way to get rid of the stink! SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME!

Fabreeze and set it out in the sun with the windows down every chance you get for awhile. Also set a couple of boxes of baking soda inside. The odor will eventually go away. Chances are it is still damp from being detailed.

What Kevin said.

But just in case you're in a hurry to get rid of the smell, you could cover it up with a less noxious odor like cat pee.

No really, I remember this stuff called X-14 that you could get at the store, it really works great. I take it the smell is too strong to be overcome by something like those new car scent de-odorizers?

dog smell answer

Just wanted everyone to know that a simple remedy of getting dog smell , smoke , or any noxis smell is mix distilled white vinegar and water in a spray bottle, about 1/2 cup of vinegar to two (2) cups of water, spray everything down carpet and seats and let stand with windows down for a couple of hours on a warm day and the odor should go away, may take acouple times if strong odor. And vinegar will not stain

One thing that I have used for urine smell is Vanilla extract. Put some drops of it under the seats and you won't smell the pee...........GlennK

All of the above are great- if you still have a problem Meguiars has a product called 'Odor Eliminator" that works really well also...

Pheeewww!!

Actually Chevyluvnpuppy might have the answer to that one, she works for a vet clinic. My suggestion is this stuff WE bought from our vets office called KOE -- Kennel Odor Eliminator. It's a concentrated formula and this stuff even gets rid of cat pee smell (which if you have a cat, you know is IMPOSSIBLE to get rid of).
Our vets office uses it when cleaning the cages and kennels, and their office never smells bad.
Pup, ever hear of this stuff?

Chickie.

hey 4jchick, you probably could get rid of that smell faster by telling 4JChuckie to get out of the car!

My brother had a cat pee on his leather jacket once, he eventually threw it away 'cause he could always smell it. I never could, but I think he did only because he knew it was there. Kinda' wierd how that works huh?

I tried that once Bullheimer, but the odour lingered

Maybe the Febreze you guys have in the US is more potent than ours, because I don't find it gets rid of much odour on anything.

I'm with you Chickie. I bought a bottle of that stuff because of cat smell (not pee, just thier smell), and it worked for about 5 minutes, then it came right back.

Not to be redundant, but the baking soda trick worked in my mom's dog infested ride...

Unfortunately time is the only thing that makes musty smells go away, if the cause of the smell has been elimintated. New carpet usually gets rid of the smell pretty good provided your vehicle is not subjected the same thing that caused it in the first place: IE: leaky car, dogs, smoking, whatever.

I had a car get full of water during a flood and I even removed the carpet and let it air dry in the sun for several days but it took about 2 yrs for that stinch to finally leave the vehicle. New carpet would have cured it but I didn't care.

Dog Smell In Car

I'm also about to get a great deal on a Honda Passport, but the only catch is that it stinks of dog(s). Wondering if you had any success with ridding the stank from your car. Any advice greatly needed and appreciated!

Easy is best

The best and oldest is the white vinegar and water. Mistake people make is not enough on the carpet. You need to get to the pad. So, either soak it good, not standing water, or open up the carpet so you can get to the pad also. In old houses with that popcorn ceiling you can use this stuff to clean the stains. Headliners come clean also. But, I guess if you drive a DESOTO you are old enough to remember these things.
