Ford patents method for removing new car smell

Ford has a filed a patent application for an automated new-car-smell removal method, designed to make your brand-new vehicle smell less, well, new. According to the company's filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office, new car smell is caused by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) given off by leather, plastic and vinyl materials in a car's interior. Adhesives, sealants and glass cleaners may also contribute to the odour.
