Car Talk #1033 - Crab Smell - Answer


#1

This is in response to the woman who had a bad crab smell in her mercedes-benz and called in during show #1033…It also applies to anyone who has an organic based smell in their car.



To get rid of the smell, instead of replacing the carpet, you may try contacting a crime scene cleanup company in your area. These companies specialize in cleaning up crime scenes, including murder scenes. Why is that important? Because they use chemicals/products that break down organic based smells (i.e. smells that come from dead or rotting flesh or other organic matter).



It may end up being less costly.



Hope this helps someone!
