303 Aerospace Protectant Smell

Is it just me or does it smell like Punani? Maybe it has gone bad (The bottle is about 2 years old)?

Haven't noticed any smell at all

I recently used 303 on practically every surface of my interior, since I have the leatherette seating, and I don't smell anything. I bought the bottle a couple months ago and finally used it 2 weeks ago, so the age could be the difference. I always wonder how long this stuff lasts....

I used a turtle wax sponge (4" round sponge) to apply it, and I was thrilled with the results. It's the smoothest (no irregularity) and most lint-free finish I've ever seen on a black dash! It's almost as if it repells the lint.

Hmmmm.... Time to pony up for a new bottle... I think it has gone bad if you don't smell anything.

would you guys say the 303 aerospace would be the best all purpose interior cleaner. i'm not looking to buy anything fancy, just something to freshen the dash trim and seats, since it dusts up pretty quick.

I love 303 aerospace but I use it in combination with 303 fabric guard for carpets. I have also been using 1z Cockpit premium but I still find myself leaning to 303 aerospace. I find 1z cp a little slippery for some reason.

I use 303 from my car to my life jacket when dragon boating it's versatile.

Cheers,
Nick

Wait....Its smells like Punani?....Throw that up on ebay as an airfreshner. I am sure some sick bastard will buy it...

I must say mine does not smell either. What ever smell it does have keeps it smelling like a new car.

I have noticed the smell. But for what is does to almost every non fabric and leather surface - I will endure - This is definitely the best stuff i have seen to date. The others are either too glossy or don't cure evenly...

lol I don't seem to get that smell. I actually prefer the smell of 303 to cockpit premium for some reason.
