Cigarette, Burnt Plastic & Skunk - These worked for ALL of them!!
on April 10, 2017
In a moment of stupidity, I left a rug covering part of a floor heater in a rental unit. The next day I found the rug mostly melted and the apartment smelled, which previously had a faint cigarette smell, now had an overpowering burnt plastic smell which would make you gag while you were standing OUTSIDE. Going inside made your eyes water and you literally had to shower and change clothes to remove the smell on you. So, I started airing out the apartment and using carpet cleaner and washing all of the removable fabrics... and it still stunk to holy hell.
So, I went on amazon & bought 2 of these & 2 of another brand (Nature's Air Sponge Odor Absorber -
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00006ICYB/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and opened all of them :) I scattered them around the apartment and closed all of the windows & doors and left for a few days. I used the lids to flip the sponge out of the container so more surface area was exposed. After a few days, the smell was drastically reduced, and after a week it was a very faint smell. I haven't been able to see how they have worked long term, as the apartment was rented (thankfully these worked well enough that someone wanted to live in there.. before using them, it was difficult to spend more than 30 minutes in the unit without getting nauseous).
A few weeks later, a friend had a skunk get in the crawl space. She tried everything to get rid of the smell & nothing was having much of an impact on the skunk scent. I told her about these & the next time I saw her, she was amazed at how well they had worked.
So, if you have a horrible smelling room or house or car.. TRY THESE!! I don't know how much time these saved me! I'm getting ready to order more of them for other rentals & realized I hadn't reviewed them yet. So I can say I would definitely order them again because I'm going to order more right after I post this :)
