Also, because no one's mentioned it here, the outer label peels off leaving a nice looking neutral print on the jar.
If you're looking for a safe and effective air freshener that you can put out and forget about which won't leave cloying chemical perfume odors, I highly recommend giving this product a try.
CREATE ADJUSTABLE STRENGTH ODOR REMOVAL
A good approach for bathrooms that get a lot of use:
1. Flip it onto it's lid (gel out of container);
2. Cut "vent" strips out of bottom of container with a razor;
3. Leave gel on lid, put container on top. It's now sitting upside down.
4. Lift container to expose ALL the gel for faster odor removal, put container back to cover leaving only vents for slower, longer-lasting odor removal.
Alternatively, just switch from a partially off/fully off lid, but this will only expose the top of the gel, and so won't achieve strong/fast odor removal.
1. Consider using less product and/or adding a scented product to save money if you have strong, continuous smells in a large area. Where that is the case you'll need so much of this product that it's own slight odor won't have space to neutralize itself (which it does otherwise).
2. Save money by buying in bulk
- Cheapest: Buy a case at Goodbyeodors.com
- 5-lbs via Amazon Bad Air Sponge Odor Remover
3. Flip it out of the container onto its lid, or scoop bits of the product out onto pieces of cardboard in the space when you first use it. Experiment to determine the least you need to make the smell acceptable/gone.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I USE?
Take into consideration:
' Space: Full rooms with tough odors need extra, small spaces with minor odors just open the container
' Heat/air flow: The product will evaporate much faster if there is excess heat or a lot of air flow.
' Source: A continuous source of strong odors (such as wafting smoke, cat litter box) will require more of the product.
' Size of source: One pet accident is a small area. A smoke-damaged room has odor particles in EVERYTHING, and will take more product
HOW CAN I MAKE IT STRONGER/WORK FASTER?
Use plenty of scoops onto paper plates/pieces of cardboard and leave around in worst odor areas.
As it shrinks/dries up, cut pieces in half to expose more fresh odor-fighting chemical if you don't want its effectiveness to fade.
HOW TO MAKE IT LAST LONGER/COST LESS?
Consider buying the 5-lb bucket (link at top).
Consider using less and also using a scented product of some kind.
Keep it away from areas that are
' Have lot of air flow
WHAT'S THE BEST STRATEGY FOR CAT LITTER?
DISPOSAL: If you can't take it out right away, consider a diaper pail. Most have a slot inside the lid for some kind of scent disk. Attach a piece of wire or fabric mesh (twist ties work fine) to the scent holder area to make hanging spot to scoop some bad air sponge into.
THE SPACE: Buy the 5-lb (link at top) version to save money over time, and start with more scoops spread around than you think you need, then cut back to test.
WILL I SMELL THE PRODUCT ITSELF?
The product has a slight slight citrus-y smell that will actually neutralize itself in most uses. But:
YOU WILL SMELL IT IF:
' It's less than a foot away from your nose in an open area (or 2-3 feet if you expose a lot of product);
' You use a lot of the product;
' It's in a very hot area or in an area with a lot of air flow;
' Air flow occasionally blows from the product towards your nose;
WHAT ABOUT REALLY, REALLY BAD ODORS?
The worse the odor and the larger the space, the more of the product you'll need to scoop out and leave around. But it really works well, though you may have to use a lot of the product.
TIPS FOR MILDEW
Windows over time can get water damage and mold, so consider using the sponge near windows. Also, read the next tip.
WHAT DOES IT WORK LEAST WELL ON?
A material with mold/mildew is just like having a smoker lighting one up: both create new smell and spread it into the air continuously.
Also, even after finding and removing/using chemicals (bleach, special paint) on mildew-infected area, it tends over time to have gotten into everything in the space affected (like smoke), so you need more product than you think you do.
COMPLETELY ELIMINATING TEMPORARY ODORS
Use as much as you need to eliminate odors, but keep using it for awhile EVEN AFTER the smell appears gone. What happens is that odors near the surface spread fastest and are neutralized first, but deeper odors still exist. If you stop using it too soon, a small amount of deeper odor will slowly spread, and so you may need to use the sponge again.
Alternatively, use it until the odor is gone, then use again if smell seems to "come back." Still, 2-3 uses should permanently eliminate most odors.
Company say it is not, and that it's even safe to eat. But if you use such a large amount that you can smell the product strongly over a long period of time, you are probably getting more of the chemical than anyone has been tested against. However, one reviews says "This product uses the same chemical, para-dichlorobenzene, that is used in urinal cakes, heavy-duty industrial cleaners, some plug-in air fresheners, and as the main ingredient in mothballs."
CHECK ON ARRIVAL: It should fill the container and look not at all shriveled when you open it. If it is shriveled, return it right away--it's been partially used up, probably by accidental exposure to air.
Remember, continuous strong sources in larger spaces (mildew, new smoke, lots of cats using a litter box, etc.) will need a lot more product than you might think. As well as large spaces that have been contaminated with strong odors--although once they are gone, you will need no or very little product ongoing.
The only drawback is that product itself doesn't have a particularly good, fresh smell - it's kind of like the blue stuff in port-a-potties. But you really don't smell it that often, and it isn't too strong. It's just a "trace smell."
Flash forward a month, and I'm laying in bed, and my nose is really itchy and sensitive from the smell of primer. I bought an ozone machine and used it multiple times. I placed three boxes of baking soda around my room, and I left the windows open with a box fan blowing out the air while I was at work. I added some plants and even boiled vinegar to neutralize the smell.
There was still a strong smell of primer, and it was making me feel sick at night. I didn't even want to be in my new home.
I bought this bad air sponge thing because of the reviews and because I was desperate. The first few nights, I was getting a headache from the weird smell coming from it. I think I have a more sensitive nose than most people. o_o I placed one of those air fresheners with the smell of linen. (You know, those ones that look like water beads and shrinks down. When that happens, I just add more water, and it lasts 5 times longer.)
Anyway, literally. The smell of primer is gone.
The smell of the bad air sponge thing is still lingering just a little though, but it's very faint. I took it out of my room and placed it in my shoe closet (along with that glass bead freshener), and I'm freaking serious. It works so well when paired together. I don't even know how.
If you're starting to get desperate, try this thing out.
Oh, I forgot to mention that my room is about 10x14.
