Different steps to remove the smell in your Mercedes A class
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 capable to absorb inside your Mercedes A class, use the support 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 advise using carpet shampoo mixed with water. Prepare this in a bucket to have a homogeneous mixture. It will be efficient for your Mercedes A class. Apply vigorously with a cloth or the green side of a sponge. You will also need to throw away what you make use of here.
Another useful mixture is a mixture between a third of water, vinegar and finally baking soda. Also very powerful in removing odours in your Mercedes A class.
Rub vigorously for a few minutes. Then, you must dry as much of the area as possible by absorbing with different cloths. The sun will do the end of the work.
Now that the stain is cleaned, here are some suggestions to permanently remove the smell in your Mercedes A class.
First reflex, an anti-odour spray, special for cars. Be cautious, however, if you have leather or other coating in your car. Take something appropriate.
Alternatively, you can employ baking soda, which will absorb these annoying odours of your Mercedes A class. 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 often think about is cat litter. Indeed, this is basically meant to retain and absorb the odours of cats that are long lasting. So it also succeeds very well for your Mercedes A class. It is recommended to let it work a little longer than baking soda (a full day would be very effective).
Finally, we recommend that you use ground coffee in the area in question, it also has very powerful odour absorbing effects.
