Taking control of odor with Ever Bamboo! Read my #review of their Bamboo Charcoal Deodorizers!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary sample of one or more of the products or services mentioned below in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and/ or believe will be good for my readers. In some cases, an affiliate link has been applied.

Company Bio: Ever Bamboo’s bamboo charcoal is produced from the rapidly growing moso bamboo. This type of bamboo can grow two feet or more in a single day, reaching a height of 60 feet in two to three months.

Due to the growth characteristics of moso bamboo, millions of tiny holes are created as the plant densifies as it matures, a process taking approximately five years. It is these tiny holes that ultimately give the resulting bamboo charcoal its revolutionary abilities as both a deodorizer and dehumidifier. These benefits have been enjoyed for more than five centuries in Asia.

Personal Experience: Ever Bamboo provided me with a selection of their products for the purpose of this review. I chose the Boot Deodorizer, Premium Closet Deodorizer, Bin Deodorizer, and Fridge & Freezer Deodorizer.

Each of these products are made from bamboo charcoal. Bamboo charcoal has a porous surface that absorbs odors, moisture, and pollutants. This makes it effective as a deodorizer and dehumidifier for multiple areas inside and outside your home, office, and car. It can be used to filter water, making it especially useful for drinking water and aquariums. Imagine aquarium rock that filters the water! Bamboo charcoal even works in the garden… use it around plants indoors or out to control your plants’ moisture levels. It really is an amazing product!

Our foyer closet is used to store all of our coats and jackets for the year as well as our entire collection of shoes, boots, and sandals. As I’m sure you can imagine, this can create quite an odor problem within this small space. First, I placed the Boot Deodorizer in the worst offender… my husband’s work boots. Then I hung the Premium Closet Deodorizer on the closet rod. The combination has made a huge difference in that space. Your nose is no longer assaulted by the smell of feet when you open the closet door. I’d almost venture to say that it smells pleasant! ;)

The Boot Deodorizer sacks are sized just right to give plenty of odor control to the largest of boots, but still tuck into a smaller woman’s boot or shoe. The closet deodorizer has a clever keyhole shape that allows you to easily hang it among your clothes.

Our next odor demon was the garbage pail. We don’t put food waste in the trash, but our potty training toddler still has the occasional accident in his training pants. Even when you dump solids in the toilet, you’re still left with a lot of odor in the trash. The Bin Deodorizer sticks right inside the pail to tackle the odors right at the source.The actual little bamboo charcoal sack fits inside a black sleeve with a sticky back and velcro. so you can easily remove it for “recharging.” (I’ll explain that later.)

I originally placed the pouch under the lid, but the sticky back came loose and we nearly threw it out with the trash. I relocated it inside the pail on the side wall. I didn’t find this as effective as the Closet and Boot Deodorizers, but this had an even tougher odor to handle. It did help some.

The Fridge & Freezer Deodorizer has proven itself. It gets moved around in our fridge constantly as we shuffle things around and it is holding up very well to the activity. It has been hard at work keeping fridge odors under control. It’s doing to well that I completely overlooked a container of moldy strawberries! This is actually a good thing… it proved to me just how well it was working… and then I cleaned my fridge thoroughly. :)

To “recharge” the bamboo charcoal, it just needs to be placed outside under direct sunlight (2-3 hours per side) every 30-60 days. With proper care, the products can last up to one year. When it’s time to move on, the bamboo charcoal pieces can be mixed with gardening soil or used in decor pieces in your home. Clever, right?

Pros: Renewable, green method for absorbing odors, moisture, and pollutants. Effective and easy to use. Many uses all over your home. Recyclable.

Cons: May not handle really strong odors as well as other less green methods.

  1. (Review} Ever Bamboo ~ Bamboo Charcoal Deodorizers) I sure could use a few of these Deodorizers in a few places at our house. One place would be around the cat’s litter boxes for sure.

    • I definitely think these could do the trick. They even make one designed for use in high odor situations or large rooms. At about $10-15 each, it’s a really good value for keeping odors at bay.

  2. Ah!!! Sounds like an awesome product. Not only does it seem to knock out the toughest of odors, it is “rechargeable”. Another plus, for me, would be masking food odors from the trash bin. My furdoggy loves to dig stuff out of the trash when mommy forgets to take it out.

    The boot one sounds like a winner for my husband’s size 12.5 shoes!!! YAY!!!

    Wonderful review!!

  3. These seem to be taking the place of baking soda. I think they would work better though after reading this review.

    • It definitely worked better than baking soda has for us. It’s also longer lasting… and you can use the charcoal in decorative ways after it’s done.

  4. I have never heard of this before but it sounds great. We have a closet in our basement that we store out winter hats and coats and when it is time to pull them out they always smell.

    • It sounds like you can relate to our closet dilemma. This really did the trick.

  5. My husband could totally use these for his steel toed work boots! He is in boots from 6am-4pm Mon-Fri and his feet sweat like crazy! Going to have to try these out! No more stinky!

    Reply
    • That sounds very much like my husband’s schedule in steel-toes. I can relate to the stinky! ;) This should do the trick.

  6. I would love to try these as there’s many closets in my house and some shoe closets too! Very green :)

  7. Oh thanks for sharing this information. I think these could be very handy and helpful. Baking soda does not work for everything LOL

  8. I like that they used bamboo to make the charcoal from since it is a grass that grows quick like a weed. I could use some of these for my son’s room in general and for his shoes and closet. He is 13 and gets pretty ripe smelling when he starts sweating and this month it’s supposed to be in the 90’s for most of the month.

  9. My closet could definitely use one of these! I like products that really deodorize, rather than just covering it up (because even stink is better than fake florals mixed with stink!), and this sounds excellent.

    Reply
    • I agree with you! Those flowery “deodorizers” just create more odor. Yuck!

      Reply
  10. Oh man, I need to try these. My dresser for some reason smells atrocious. But I’m too cheap to get a new one. lol I bet these would work great though.

    Reply
    • I wish I had some of this when I was deodorizing the dresser I refurbished for my son’s room. It had a horrible smoke and musty smell and I tried a dozen different methods to get rid of the odors. I think it was the combination of them all that finally worked… and the 5 coats of paint and stains. LOL

  11. I love that more and more products are using natural ingredients to solve problems. This is a perfect example. I will look for these at the market, I could see a million reasons to use them.

  12. I’ve tried this product before and I agree that they work great. I put one in the bottom (under the bag) of my diaper genie! It worked miracles! I didn’t know that I was suppose to put them out in the sun now and then. I will have to try this. I also didn’t know that you could mix it with your gardening soil. That is fantastic!

    • Thank you for the extra feedback on these. It’s great to hear that I’m not the only one with such a positive experience… and I’m glad you learned something to make your experience with them even better. :)

  13. Living in Florida, the dehumidifying would be a great help to combat mold and mildew as well.

    Reply
  14. I have not seen this product in the stores. I think I will stick with baking soda as it is much cheaper. Though if an opportunity arises to try, I will.

    Reply
  15. Anything organic and natural is typically better than anything bought that has chemicals and toxins. I would enjoy getting this product.

  16. I would love to try these deodorizers out. I love the fact that they don’t have a distinct smell like a spray.

    Reply
  17. I had never heard of this product, but will be ordering some for my basement. I love how they use nature to cure the problem without leaving a carbon footprint. The fact that bamboo grows so quickly makes it an ideal product for many uses. I will let you know what I think. Thanks for the review and introduction.

  18. I’d never heard of these, but they seem pretty neat. I really like that they’re green too! I wonder if they’d work in my smelly laundry room?

  19. These sound wonderful. I never knew charcoal could be used this way, amazing!
