Volcanic Odor Removal Bags

This type of odor eliminator really is amazing how they work to absorb odors. They are filled with ionized volcanic minerals that are non toxic. Volcanic odor removal bags eliminate smells from basements or closets and can be used in the attic too. We had a large basement that would occasionally get some water leaving a mildew smell behind.

In this large basement we placed 3 of the odor eliminators around one at the end one in the middle and one at the far end. Along with a de-humidifier the smell was gone within a couple days. These odor bags stay in the basement now and about ever 6-8 months we put them in the sun for around 8 hours to recharge the ionization.

Covering up odors with perfume based air fresheners doesn't eliminate the odors and a constant replenishing of sprays and plug in air fresheners is needed. These can become costly and effectively they aren't removing the smells they are just masking over the smell.

As always there are a couple different manufacturers of the bags. Some come with hangers and are in different sizes but ultimately the volcanic minerals are what help to eliminate the nasty odors in these confined spaces of your house or home. Be sure if you purchase 1 or more that you choose the correct size for the area that has odors need to be removed.
