DIY Coffee Scented Car Freshner

Sunday, August 14, 2005

I was getting tired of the aftermarket car scents that dangle from your rear view mirror. Besides, short of going to an automotive store, I was never able to find a coffee scented car freshner so I decided to make my own.
Total cost= around 3 dollars

Here are the supplies you will need. Coffee beans, a small jar to hold the beans (preferably with an aluminum lid), a fork (I used a hammer and a small pick for making the holes in the lid).


Because I used baby jars, I had to empty the contents of that nasty mush out. After I dumped the contents out, I put a dab of toothpaste in each one, filled the rest with water and shook it a few times to get the smell of baby food out.


Here are my jars drying out. You want to make sure that your jars are completely dry before continuing on the project.


Here I punched holes with my pick and hammer. You can use a knife, fork or whatever you choose but I wanted a little more control in the placement of vents (my second jar was much more aligned).


Now take your coffee beans and fill the jar to the brim.


There she is. Done quite painlessly.


Total time from start to finish was about 10 Minutes.

Another version would use grounded beans and a little coffee filter. Grind/crush the beans or buy ready made coffee, and put into the baby jar. Then cut a coffee filter as round as the cap, and place it in the cap. Now cap it. Same thing, looks different, the filter prevents spills, and makes a perfect emergancy stash if ever needed.

you can also just sprinkle ground coffee into the car interior and then vaccuum the car during weekly/monthly cleanup. we used to do this for the carpet/tile floors in our bingo parlor. worked like a champ at clearing out some of that smoke smell.

This looks like a fun thing to try, shall have a go next time I get hold of a small jar. One thing I thought tho, was wouldnt it be better if you had the beans ground up so more aroma is released? To stop the grounds from falling out the vapour holes in the lid you could attach some fine filter paper to let the smell out but keep the coffee dust in :) A great idea, thanks for sharing.

So my car is going to start smelling of Starbucks? Couldn't be worse than what it's smelling of right now.

I'll give it a go as long as I use Cinnamon.

This site has many interesting things, thank you for your efforts. I like your article, look forward to your next article.
Hey Great.. Information you are sharing.. Thank you...
The actual car scents associated with a brand new car can be extremely enjoyable. Sadly, that smell may diminish easily but if your car isn't retained clean. Odors by waste, dirt, smoking, and many others can impact just how your car's internal may smell.
