When I was recently given the chance to try a new natural odor removal product by Mother Choice Products I was definitively curious to learn more. I don't use any odor removal solutions at home because most of the time I only find products that are filled with chemicals and fragrances and they are not safe for my family. So I was excited to receive the package with the samples of NaturzAire.
NaturzAire contains a naturally occurring volcanic mineral that doesn't have any chemicals or fragrances. The product is scent-free and it is safe to use around children, pets and people suffering from asthma or that have any chemical sensitivities. It comes in two little pouches that are made of certified organic cotton and you can place them anywhere you need to eliminate odors (will treat up to 80 ft).
To use it you have to recharge the pouch by setting it in the hot sun for about 8 hours or fresh air (in a dry area) for about 3 days. After recharging it the pouch will continue to absorb odors for several months before needing to be recharged. Most odors are eliminated after 8 hours.
As soon as I received the package I started charging the little pouches. It was unfortunately not really sunny so I left them both by the window for 3 days (see first photo) and after that I put one on top of my diaper pail and the other one by the garbage bin. (Note: After posting this I was told by NaturzAire that their pouches actually come charged out of the packaging and you only have to re-charge them after a couple of months of use, great to be able to use them right away!).
I don't really have any bad odor problems with my open diaper pail but as somebody pointed out to me before sometimes people just get used to the stink and stop smelling it. I don't want my house smelling like dirty diapers when visitors arrive so I am using it on top of the pail.
I placed the second one behind the garbage bin and I noticed that there is no stinky odor coming from the area anymore. I really love the fact that I am not spraying any chemicals or using toxic gels that can be reached by my son.
I think this is a great idea and a great product to use if you have a diaper pail and you want to get rid of the bad odor, or for basically anywhere that needs some freshening. Safe, natural, re-usable and economic!
