Air freshener odor

The PO of our AS had multiple air fresheners hanging in just about everywhere possible. The smell is very pleasant, but we would like to eliminate the sweet smell. I've tried multiple sprayings with Febreeze but the air freshener smell remains. All help appreciated.

Thanks,

If you have removed the source, the smell should go away on it's own. Might take some time, opening the windows would help speed things up.

Charcoal is also known to remove odors.

I've found that a dead rat will remove the smell of air fresheners... Or you can leave the windows open for a while. Yeah, that's probably a better idea...

Especially if you light it!

Seriously, covering one odor with another never really works, you just end up with two odors. Charcoal absorbs odors. So does baking soda (which is why everyone has a box in their fridge). Kitty litter usually does, too. ( clean litter only, please). When you throw away the charcoal or baking soda or kitty litter, you throw the odor away with it.

Odors sometimes cling to the fabrics and surfaces in the trailer. We have found wiping upholstery and exposed surfaces down with a cloth dampened with peroxide to help a lot. The peroxide is the standard stuff sold in a drugstore. The cloth should be damp and not wet and add a bit of peroxide to it as you go along so it keeps the same degree of dampness.

Our trailer is lined with the "mouse fur" and that stuff can hold odors a long time. That is what led us to using peroxide.
