    What do you guys use in your trucks to get the sweat smell out? I sweat alot while working (especially in this heat)- I suppose we all do. I put garbage bags over the seat cushions so they dont get sweaty or dirty, and I try to keep my fore arms off the console etc. I still cant keep the sweat smell out.

    I tried dryer sheets under the seat and it worked for a days or so, until I started mowing and got all sweaty again.

    I clean up my hands, arms, face and neck with baby wipes between most accounts and change my shirt once or twice a day. Vinyl seats don't hold sweat.

    I'm not saying that this will get the sweat smell out but, a banana peel under the seat will definately change things for the better. Just change the banana peel regularly.

    It's no joke. It's an old hot rodder's trick.

    Try Fabreze "Safely eliminates odor on fabrics". Works on my LazyBoy.

    I picked up a seat cover from Cabela's catalog. Best thing out there in my opinion- cost about 30 bucks if I remember right. Secondly I smoke a pipe. It really gets the sweat smell gone. If you don't want to start smoking a pipe (why NOT?), try getting a air unit from Alpine Industries. They sell fro about a hundred bucks for a car unit. Runs of the lighter fixture. Last thing I use is cedar planks pushed under the floor boards. Scuff them with sand paper once a year and they will last for a long time.

    Cordially,

  9. We have a big mint patch in our herb garden.
    I cut some 1 or 2 X a week and keep it in a mesh bag hanging on the dash. Just squeeze it a few times to reactivate it. If its wet out a little on the floor mats helps the musty smell also.
    Truck smells like a chewing gum factory but much more pleasant than the alternative.
    Also
    I get those wove fabric seat covers and replace every winter.

    I'd have to agree with using Febreze. Other than that, I'd also recommend more frequent vacuuming will help.
