Bleach in a Febreeze Bottle

On the evening of 10/2/2010 I smelled a funky odor in my car so I decided to give my interior a shot of Febreeze as I sometimes do. I grabbed a bottle of Febreeze from the kitchen, but the bottle didnt work. So I checked the bathroom and found a bottle of febreeze....or so I thought. I started to spray the drivers side carpet and suddenly I got the smell of bleach. It turns out my mothers home health aide had filled this bottle of Febreeze with bleach and DID NOT label it. The first two photos are of the bleach damaged carpet and floor matt, the second two are the undamaged passenger side for comparison.





The cost to replace the carpet and floor matts (you must buy all four) installed, $856.00. Fortunately the home health agency IS footing the bill.

Edited post. I guess I cannot put the pictures directly into the post. Put links to the photos up instead.

Black or grey spray paint. Lightly dust it in and sponge or towl rub it into the carpet. Dealerships and detailers do it all the time to cover spots.

^^^ this. It may give you crunchy carpet for a little while, but it's better than $900
