You have finally found the fuel leak that had been a problem for several days but now you can’t remove the smell of gasoline that pollutes the interior of your Infiniti Q60.
If you have not quite determined the origin of the fuel smell, we suggest that you check out our article on the subject: “Infiniti Q60 smelling like gasoline”.
If you have identified it, we will explain how to remedy it and bring back a healthy smell in your Infiniti Q60.
Different steps to remove the smell in your Infiniti Q60
First of all, if the fuel source is inside, you must identify it and absorb as much as possible. Use old cloths or mops that should be thrown away after handling as they will not be reusable.
For the remaining fuel that you are unable to absorb inside your Infiniti Q60, use the help of the sun. Indeed, if you keep your vehicle in full sun for a few hours, some of it will disappear.
Now, for the remaining part, you must prepare a cleaning mixture.
We suggest using carpet shampoo mixed with water. Prepare this in a bucket to have a homogeneous mixture. It will be efficient for your Infiniti Q60. Apply vigorously with a cloth or the green side of a sponge. You will also have to throw away what you use here.
Another usable mixture is a mixture between a third of water, vinegar and finally baking soda. Also very powerful in eliminating odours in your Infiniti Q60.
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 complete the end of the work.
Now that the stain is wiped clean, here are some tips to permanently remove the smell in your Infiniti Q60.
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 unpleasant odours of your Infiniti Q60. Sprinkle the area and let it work for a few hours. Repeat the operation for several days for an ideal effect.
Another very powerful product that we don’t necessarily think about is cat litter. Indeed, this is basically intended to retain and absorb the odours of cats that are strong. So it also works very well for your Infiniti Q60. 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 area in question, it also has very effective odour absorbing effects.
Here are the different tips you can make use of to find a clean and odourless interior.
