Tested: Meguiar's SQUASH Quick Air Refresher
by Martin Gonzales
The Meguair's Quick Air Refresher is magical awesomeness in a can! Not only does it do an amazing job at eliminating odors, but it now comes in a Lemon-Lime Squash smell! If you've been in the import car game for more than just a few years you have definitely stumbled upon, or maybe obsessed over, the amazing scent of squash.
Our story has to start a couple years ago when we had the chance to meet the Meguiar's team at a media conference and they were showing us their new line of Quick Air Refresher sprays and Whole Car Air Refreshers, which are more like a scent-bomb. The scent-bomb caught our attention, but our inner JDM-fanboy couldn't help but ask, “Why don't you guys come out with a squash smell?!” Now, we're not saying the new Lemon-Lime Squash scent came out because of us, but apparently we weren't the only ones asking for it.
Fast forward to the same conference this year, and as soon as we walked in the door the Meguiar's team asked us one question, “what do you think we came out with this year?” We were totally kidding when we answered with, “A JDM squash air freshener!!!” But sure enough, that's exactly what they had waiting for us to try out. We cannot put into words the excitement that came over our group! You would have thought someone must've just won a brand new car on the Price is Right with the amount of excitement and noise coming out of our conference room!
We recently used the Lemon-Lime-Squash Meguiar's Quick Air Refresher in our EP3 Civic Si which is currently being used as the company beater and had great results. It's important to vacuum your car completely and it wouldn't hurt to wipe down and clean all the interior panels to get rid of any funk that's been clinging on to your car before spraying. We sprayed a couple low-traffic spots on the carpets and also gave it a couple general in the air sprays. After driving the car a couple days we noticed that not only was the squashy goodness still there, but some of the funky smells we couldn't previously identify were significantly diminished. Win win!
Here's a quote from our resident drifter Rathyna Gomer:
In conclusion, this is the best air freshener ever! Ok, so we can't really quantify or claim that, but in our opinion this is one of the most exciting car care products to come out in a long time. It's really awesome to know the product development team is in touch with our community and is listening to what we want. So go out and buy yourself some cases of this stuff. We know we are!
