chipotle smell

So a couple weeks ago i bought some chipotle and forgot it in my x3 for about an hour and now there is a chipotle smell in the car everytime i enter.... I tried spraying down the carpetting with febreze and I was thinking maybe the smell is burnt into the seat.

any ideas on removing the smell besides paying for an expensive detail?

I've successfully used this product in the past - you can purchase these at many stores:

Stinky-Be-GoneŽ Works Hard To Absorb All Types Of Odors!



http://www.griotsgarage.com/product/stinky-be-gone.do?

Stinky-Be-GoneŽ is better than ever! Have an SUV that is a rolling fast food cafeteria? Inevitably there will always be a lingering odor from french fries, spilled milk, misplaced diapers and wet pets. Place a two pound bag of Stinky-Be-GoneŽ under the seat and it will knock out those odors and eliminate musty, stale air as well. (Great for closets!) Reduces even nauseous oil and gasoline fumes! The bag of porous volcanic rock contains Zeolite, an odor neutralizing mineral. Lasts forever. Simply place the bag outside in direct sunlight for 6 to 8 hours to recharge. Use it in your car, garage, basement, closets, laundry room and more! Nontoxic, environmentally safe and has a grommet for easy hanging.

+1 on Griots "Stinky" -- works on leather, sensatech, leatherette, or cloth. Great stuff!

Probably too late now, but I always park mine in garage overnight with all windows down if I pick up take out. That seems to air our bad smells nicely.
