Hello all,

I just bought my 5th VW and I was quickly reminded of the crayon smell in the car. I have a temporary fix for you that I just tried today.

Supplies needed:

  • Cookie sheet
  • Incense holder
  • Incense stick (user preference)


  1. Get a cookie sheet
  2. Place the cookie sheet on the floor board
  3. Insert you favorite incense flavor in the holder
  4. Light the stick and let it burn for 5 seconds
  5. Blow it out
  6. Now place in on the cookie sheet
  7. Make sure all the windows are rolled up
  8. Let it burn all the way down
  9. Now open the windows, or drop your top for about 2 hours
  10. Roll the windows back up and take a deep breath with your nose
For me this removed about 90% of the smell. What happens is that the smoke bonds to the moisture trapped in the sound insulation and padding under your carpet. I will let you know how long this works. I will check back in next week.

For a permanent fix look here for the carpet kit for your VW:
