DIY Activated Charcoal Odour Absorber

Get rid of bad smells naturally with this homemade activated charcoal odour absorber.

You’re easily exposed to more than a dozen different scents in a single day. Maybe you smell the fresh cut grass on your walk to work, the clean scent of laundry straight out of the dryer, or the delicious aroma of cookies baking in the oven.

Or maybe you breathe in the stench of old work boots after a long day’s work, or the sweaty smell of an overused gym bag after hockey practice. Maybe you even open the fridge to the overwhelming smell of last week’s dinner leftovers still hanging out in the fridge. Oops.

A sense of smell can be both a blessing and a curse depending on the situation that you’re in. Those times the bad smells become more overwhelming than that cookies-fresh-out-of-the-oven smell, is when your mission gets critical. Your best defence is to neutralize those stenches that you don’t want to smell with a DIY Activated Charcoal Odor Absorber.

With the powers of adsorption, activated charcoal is able to hold the odours, and leave your stinky boots and bags smelling neutral.
