FRAM® Brings a Fresh Breeze Where We Need it Most.

First of all, let me start by introducing my husband to you. 

Hi everybody! This is Michael.



Yeah, he's TOTALLY rugged, and I LOVE that. But notice with me for a second what ELSE all of those above activities have in common. 

I'll give you a second. 



OK, I'll tell you. They SMELL BAD, ok? 


And have you EVER smelled a Honda Accord after a rugged, fishing, camping, sand-covered volleyball lumberjack dude DRIVES IT? The sand in every crevice, the sweat and lake water marinating into the velour seats... 

Think MIDDLE SCHOOL BOYS' LOCKER ROOM, only all the odors from hundreds of middle school boys is confined to a tiny little 57.3 cubic feet of space. 

What I'm trying to say is my pretty little Honda Accord STINKS, y'all. 

My poor vehicle reeks of THE STENCH OF AN UNWASHED CAVEMAN. FOR DAYS. IT'S A FORCE MORE POWERFUL THAN ANYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE. 

It's more than just an odor... it's a beast.  I thought I'd need a priest to get rid of it.

So I'll be honest... when I heard about FRAM® Fresh Breeze® cabin air filters, I BEGGED them to let me give it a try. I really had no idea my Honda Accord even HAD a cabin air filter! Because with ALLLLLL that smell going on INSIDE the car, the LAST thing we need is more odors from the outside wafting in.

It was SO EASY... in my car, you get to the cabin air filter through the glove box.  And don't mind the dust on the dashboard... the volleyball playing caveman has been driving it.


You just open the glove box, and squeeze the sides to pop it all the way out.





A little drawer slides out with the air filter in it.



This is it! It was NASTY! As I'm sure you can imagine...



Yes, those are DEAD BUGS AND SPIDERS in my cabin air filter! And probably sand and chainsaw oil...



The new filter goes into the tray, arrows pointing down...



And that's it. Five minutes, tops. See the QR code on the front of the box? When you snap it with your cell phone it takes you to a video showing how to install it.



I'm super impressed already! FINALLY... my the air in my Honda will be safe for my children to breathe again... at least, the air coming IN THROUGH THE VENTS will be safe... even if we can't do a thing about the odors my husband brings into the car with him. 

But for the LOVE, could someone please buy this man a TRUCK?! A truck compatible with FRAM® Fresh Breeze® cabin air filters, that is, because clearly we NEED a little Fresh Breeze in our lives.

We had a mouse make a nest up inside the van vents--and we can't get the smell out. These should do the trick, we will be trying them.

I didn't even know I had an in cabin filter!!! I need one of those!!!!

Melissa Taylor said...

Because I want one? Yeah. That's why...

Melissa Taylor said...

I had NO IDEA there even was a filter for my vents. But this would explain why my car smells like musty mildew every time I turn them on. I need to get me one of these bad boys.

Melissa Taylor said...

My hubby is a hunter and a fisherman a true outdoorsman. He loves his jeep we dont have a truck but it amazes me how he can stand the smell of it sometimes? I've had to drive with the window down in the winter just from the rancid smell? And he said he couldnt smell anything.ha!

Melissa Taylor said...

My minivan could use some fresh air. My kids spilled milk in the back seat during 100 degree weather and no matter what, a funky smell remains. I think that this filter might be the answer to our problem.

Melissa Taylor said...

Cool! I didn't even know you could change an air filter in car...

Melissa Taylor said...

I don't share my vehicle with a stinky guy but I need to avoid coughing and sneezing spells that could cause me to have an accident. After all I can't sneeze with my eyes open! I need an air filter but Fram doesn't make one for my car yet.

The boyfriend goes waterfowling with the Lab, and after a morning's hunt, the truck could use cleaner air.

I suffer from allergies so I would prefer to have cleaner air in the car.

Melissa Taylor said...

I need clean air to breathe, especially when I am driving so I maintain my alertness.

Melissa Taylor said...

I don't have to share my car with anyone (except friends) and I swim 3 times a week so my car is pretty good. I do think that clean air is a very good thing.

Thanks for the contest.

I need it because we take our dog everywhere when we drive.

Melissa Taylor said...

I don't share a car, but there have been various spills of food over the years that over time have left a funky smell. So I would love something that helps eliminate that.

Melissa Taylor said...

I do have to share a vehicle with my husband. thankyou

Melissa Taylor said...

Cleaner air because my rooms are small and collect dust and allergens build up quickly.

Melissa Taylor said...

Yes, I need a car cleaner in my vehicle as my husband to is a stinky and sweaty man. He likes to workout and hop in the car and come home to take a shower. The smell of old sweat is awful. I am always put car fresheners in my car and i never knew about the air filter. This is great.

I need cleaner air because my kids play soccer and baseball and my husband comes home very dirty and sweaty after working all day.

Melissa Taylor said...

I have kids and they tend to be stinky.

Melissa Taylor said...

My car is 12 years old I don't think this filter has ever been changed. I could really use this. I'll have to see about finding it in my car and getting it replaced. Sadly, FRAM doesn't make one for my car (probably because it is too old) but I'll see what I can find. I'd love to be able to filter the air coming into the car.

Melissa Taylor said...

My kids leave their dirt gym bags in the car. It stinks. YUCK

Melissa Taylor said...

dirty air can cause breathing problems for all of us

Melissa Taylor said...

I do share the car with my husband, he has bad allergies so I need to keep[ the air cleaner, I try to remove as much pollen I can from the car, air filter would help!

Sometimes hubby is in too big a rush to shower after a workout at the gym, so yes there are times I have to share with my caveman. I need cleaner air in my vehicle on those days especially in this TX heat.

Melissa Taylor said...

My son has terrible allergies, and I need to keep the air fresh in my car.
