You have at last determined the fuel leak that had been difficulty for several days but now you can’t remove the smell of gasoline that pollutes the interior of your Ford C Max.
If you have not quite discovered the origin of the fuel smell, we advise that you have a look at our article on the subject: “Ford C Max smelling like gasoline”.
If you have identified it, we will describe how to solve it and bring back a healthy smell in your Ford C Max.
Different steps to remove the smell in your Ford C Max
First of all, if the fuel source is inside, you must find it and absorb as much as possible. Make use of old cloths or mops that should be discarded after handling as they will not be reusable.
For the remaining fuel that you are unable to absorb inside your Ford C Max, use the help of the sun. Actually, if you leave your vehicle in full sun for a few hours, some of it will disappear.
Now, for the remaining part, you must prepare a refreshing mixture.
We advise using carpet shampoo mixed with water. Prepare this in a bucket to have a homogeneous mixture. It will be efficient for your Ford C Max. Apply vigorously with a cloth or the green side of a sponge. You will also have to throw away what you use here.
Another useful mixture is a mixture between a third of water, vinegar and finally baking soda. Also very powerful in getting rid of odours in your Ford C Max.
Rub vigorously for a few minutes. Then, you must dry out as much of the location as possible by absorbing with different cloths. The sun will do the end of the work.
Now that the stain is cleaned out, here are some tips to permanently remove the smell in your Ford C Max.
First reflex, an anti-odour spray, special for cars. Be cautious, however, if you have leather or other coating in your car. Use something appropriate.
Alternatively, you can employ baking soda, which will absorb these annoying odours of your Ford C Max. Sprinkle the area and let it work for a few hours. Repeat the operation for several days for an optimal effect.
Another very powerful product that we don’t often think about is cat litter. Actually, this is basically intended to keep and absorb the odours of cats that are long lasting. So it also succeeds very well for your Ford C Max. It is recommended to let it work a little longer than baking soda (a full day would be very effective).
Finally, we advise that you use ground coffee in the spot in question, it also has very good odour absorbing effects.
Here are the different tips you can apply to find a clean and odourless interior.
