Since I had a dog blog he wanted to know if I had dog odors in my car or home. After an indignant sniff I realized that when people are subject to the same odor, they lose the ability to smell it.
I remember as a child passing through a part of a nearby town that had a commercial solvents plant. As children we gagged at the awful smell and wondered how the people could stand to live there. We were told that the people soon could no longer smell it – which seemed pretty weird to us.
We've probably all had the experience with people whose perfume or after shave arrived minutes before they did. When people use the same scent for a while they stop smelling it and use more and more without realizing it.
So, OK, my car probably does have a slight doggie odor that I've grown used to and OK, not everyone will think it is pleasant.
There are always heavily advertised products like Febrese and various air fresheners, but they always seem perfumy, toxic, and unpleasant to breathe.
Mark sent me a prototype which I put it in my car and there are no more doggie odors or perfumy smells.
The secret is bamboo charcoal.
Bamboo charcoal is 4 times more porous than normal charcoal and the pores act like a big sponge to absorb odor and moisture to filter the surrounding air. There are no masking perfumes or chemicals.
It has been used in Eastern countries for thousands of years as nature's purifier. It lasts for over a year. All you need to do is place the Purggo in the sunlight for an hour each month to renew it. After a year you can add it to your soil as a fertilizer.
The world willl never run out of bamboo. It is an incredibly fast growing, invasive plant. In my climate if you plant it in your yard, it can quickly take over your yard and both neighbor yards in a short time. It has been known to grow 40 feet in one growing season.
I am impressed with Purggo and the clever marketing campaign. I am delighted to be a backer on Kickstarter and to recommend it. Find out more here.
