Absorb Stinky Odors Naturally
Updated: Oct 4, 2019
We often hear advertisements from various air freshener companies claiming to eliminate odors with their products. Whether essential oils, solids or aerosols sprays, three out of four American homes are scented with some type of commercial air freshener. Everyone likes a fresh toxic free environment, however, air fresheners use chemicals to cover up smells in a room or any enclosed area? Some air fresheners even contain nerve-deadening chemicals that temporarily block our sense of smell. Just because you mask an odor with a fragrance doesn’t mean the odor is eliminated, it means that the odor is temporarily covered up to meet an immediate solution of air enhancement. Due to chemical usage, pulmonary conditions such as asthma and allergies are often induced. Bamboo charcoal absorbs and removes odors. The chemical process of absorption is often compared to a sponge soaking up water. The water is “drawn-in” and fully embedded into the sponge, not being limited to the surface area. Charcoal deodorizers work in the same matter. The micro-porous activated bamboo charcoal clean the air naturally and help prevent mold and mildew by absorbing excess moisture, preventing the formation of airborne allergies. The more holes there are, the more surface area there is, and therefore, the more moisture the charcoal can hold. In addition, activated carbon has a large surface area due to being a porous material, which allows molecules to stick to the surface.
