A resourceful car owner has revealed how she keeps her car interior smelling fresh without breaking the bank.
The content creator demonstrated how to make the spray solution she sprayed in her car to fight the spark.
On her TikTok page, Jordyn Homan (@jordydelilah) filmed her sitting in the driver’s seat of her car.
“If you are [an] “Absolute jerks for those pines, keep watching,” she began the short clip while showcasing a bright blue Little Trees car air freshener and highlighting her Pennsylvania roots.
Jordyn took a moment to inhale the smell of her car before admitting, “I love it when my car smells so good.”
She lamented having to replace the hanging air fresheners once a week to keep her car smelling fresh.
“Basically, I just bought these dryer beads and I’ve never used them before,” she continued.
The TikToker showed the tube full of small bright blue beads, which are normally used in the washing machine to give the laundry an extra fresh scent.
After briefly struggling to pry open the perforated plastic seal with her nails, she then showed the camera an empty plastic spray bottle.
She carefully poured the pearls from her palm into the pink bottle.
“I don’t have a funnel or anything, so that’s probably the best way to do it,” she said as a few of the beads fell into her lap, much to her chagrin.
The beads only filled the bottom of the bottle before she poured in room-warm water from a water bottle.
“I won’t use too much because I want it to be quite strong,” she said, before shaking the bottle in a circular motion.
“Okay, I think it’ll just sort itself out. We will spray it everywhere and hope for the best.”
She got to work, squirting the makeshift solution onto the back seats.
Then the camera catches her looking over her shoulder to the back seat to see if her affordable hack works.
“No, yeah, that smells damn clean,” Jordyn admitted happily.
People flooded the comments with their thoughts and advice on the clever scent trick.
“Hey girls I’ve been using this method for years,” one commented. “Try to dissolve the pearls with hot water, then add fabric softener and some more water!”
“Ummmmm I don’t have to run to my car with all the supplies,” commented another.
Jordyn replied, “DO IT, it smells so good!”
Another person provided more helpful advice for keeping the interior fresh between spraying sessions.
“Now put some pearls in a salt/pepper shaker with holes visible at the top and leave it in your drink holder for hot days,” he said.
Jordyn praised the recommendation: “So smart! Ty!”
One commenter asked if the hack would work on leather seats, although Jordyn warned her viewers to tread carefully.
“I would be careful as I’m sure the product would leave residue on leather. Maybe if you have carpeted floor mats?” She answered.
Other car owners have taken to TikTok to share their car cleaning secrets, from keeping squeaky-clean cup holders to avoiding scratches and dents when another car parks too close.
