yeah tell me about it. One more thing. The container size is a hoax. The quantity is faaaar less than expected. They have jacked up the aroma material to a considerable height. That is plain cheating. I have never gone close to a Shaldan after I saw that. Will post pics if I still have the can.

Use Ambipur although I do not use it in the diffuser it comes with which is clamped onto the A/C vents, just keep the bottle half open under the front seat (and next to the front seat in the Omni) !

Pro is that you need not switch on the blower for it to work like in Ambipur, you can just place the tin in cup holders; just be careful not be expose it to sun directly.
I use the same thing in all my cars, but now have noticed that the quality has gone down. Before one would be enough for the car, now even two are not enough and they do not give as much of a fragrence as before.

Car usually smells of smoke. I am happy that I am going to go topless with the jeep soon.
Saves me the misery of not having to see the look my folks give me when they get into the car.

Spraying deo makes the smell even worse. And I have noticed that smoke and axe smells like Cool Waters.

If the car is smelly due to tobacco/mold residues take it to a service station that has Wynn's Aircomatic II. This one is good. believe me. You can refer to whatever it is on:

See what I mean?
Check the part coming out of the container. It elevates the content inside creating a false impression of the actual quantity.
I hope I haven't gone over board.

Ambipur has a flimsy design , it falls off in all our cars , so stopped using it . since i dont eat or drink my car , so my car doesnt smell of any bad odour . once in a while i do the following -

- on a sunny day open all doors & boot - change in the air
- have a Axe deo , spray it sometimes inside car , and whola

My car smells fresh. I use Ambipur Aroma Therapy White Lillies (spray). I change the air every hour (while driving) by rolling the windows down for 2-3 minutes.

Currently using Ambipur Citrus. So smells "citrus-y", which is a smell I like very much!

Stopped using Shaldan because it does not last and Ambipur because it leaks if it is tilted.
Any other suggestions? I am desperate enough to say that money is no object, just help me get the sweaty smell out.

How long does My shaldan last typically? I am fine with anything greater than 30 days.
Ambipur lasts 45 days for me, but it is too subtle. I can't even smell it.
