i never learn

i keep leaving my windows open, and it keeps raining. last week, someone used my car and left the windows open over Shabbos. by Sunday morning, the front seats were thoroughly soaked, and water had collected in every indentation in the front of the car. it took three days, but the seats finally dried up.

and then the car started smelling. it always had a funky-old-car smell, but now it's accompanied by a very strong moldy smell, like an animal that has been left out in the rain for a week, then tied up in a plastic bag and placed in a very small, stuffy closet.

the smell is almost unbearable.

so every time i get in the car, i open all the windows. and it seems like i keep forgetting to close the windows. whenever i get back to my car, there's always one window that's been left open-not very wide, just about 3 inches-enough for the seat to soak up some more water. and with this erratic weather, it keeps raining, on and off-not very much, just for a few minutes at a time-enough for the car to retain water and smell again.

I think your best option would be to move to the desert.

Lysol will help get out the moldy smell. You can do it while it is wet or after it is dry but you will need alot of it. Spray all the carpeting well, almost to saturation.
