My solution....don't hang one anywhere. I hate the smell of air fresheners. Just keep your car clean.

But if you really need some airfresheners I think that martinez suggestions is the absolute best solution.

One of the key points about air fresheners is that they are universal equipment for mini cabs operating in areas where there's quite a lot of late night vomiting. The deeply unpleasant, pervasive stench they exhude is worth suffering because it covers up something even worse.

In all other cases, I'm somewhat at a loss to understand their benefit.

I tent not to use any air fresheners. My car is always fresh as I use Autoglym's Odor Eliminator every time I wash the car. Those air freshenrs dissolve air oils that have the tendency to stick on the AC evaporator and cause air conditioning to smell bad. Most of the bacteria that arising on the evaporators are because of that freshners. A good solution for good air qualiy in the car is a device called Ionizer, widely available for car's sicarette ligher but for me is not good as i hate to have enything else in the car except the originals.

I've always thought that hanging ANYTHING from the rear-view mirror was a really bad idea ... 1} it obscures some of your forward vision ... 2} in the event of an accident, you could just end up with a 'magic-tree' or whatever embedded in your eye ! ...

Ive always like the New Car Scent version. If I put one in my car I usually hang it around the metal stay on the Drivers headrest, I get the smell to enjoy and it's no distraction to anyone.

As for not needing anything just keeping the car clean, you could probably eat off the floor of my Hawk, its always kept pristine (Not that I'd let you), but dampness gets into every car at this time of the year and dampness causes smell, and the pleasant smell of New Car Scent is welcome IMO ;)

I use the carplan pink "tutti fruity" smell (pretty much cos it reminds me of boillies), but that sits in my cup holder happily. But I can't stand things around mirrors they annoy me sooo much ;-)

"Fresheners...where do you hang them from? " - Remember the documentary with the weird guys who 'like' cars............ wonder what they're answer would be? LOL
