Do Away With That New Car Smell
Do you ever remember that first time that you bought your brand new Ford Mustang? Do you remember the shiny way the classic Ford Mustang parts glimmered and shimmered when light went through the vehicle? Do you also remember that smell that totally told you that yes, the vehicle was a real new one?
Well, you see, that new car smell that your vehicle had when you first bought it may be one of the best things that has ever happened to you. However, did you know that there are plenty of car owners all around the globe who are allergic to this new car smell? You may find it quite heavenly however scientists who have studied such a smell have found out that it can actually cause issues to your health. Yes, these can be quite harmful and cause you asthma and allergies among the most basic ones.
However, there seems to be a solution to such a problem. What Greenguard Environmental Institute (GEI) did today was to actually announce that their micronAir filters have already been certified. Thus, in this sense, such a new kind of auto part could actually now be marketed and sold. The micronAir filters are actually manufactured by Freudenberg Nonwovens and they are now considered as the very first automotive cabin air filters that were actually certified to work well for low chemical emissions.
Carl Smith, the chief honcho of GEI did say, “By targeting the source of interior chemical emissions and selecting low emitting materials and furnishings, auto manufacturers have begun to address increasing government and public concerns about the air in cars. Freudenberg Nonwovens has responded to these concerns for cabin air quality. We applaud them for being the first to attain Greenguard Certification for air filtration products and for showing true environmental leadership in their industry.”
If you did not know, the new car smell that makes many people want to buy new cars are actually a concoction of the various chemicals found present in your car’s interior. After all, these manufacturers do not just simply put everything together and sew them up. They do use various materials to make everything look good and work well. And chemicals can really do harm us especially when we are exposed to them for a long period of time.
