1. Vremi 30 Pint Dehumidifier Musty Smell Eliminator
Features & Benefits
- Over 792+ Positive Reviews
- A 70 PINT 9-GALLON ROOM DEHUMIDIFIER - If your standard unit of measure is ice cream (or beer), our dehumidifier removes up to 70 pints from the air per day. But if you like to measure in gallons as in milk (or beer) this dehumidifier can remove up to a whopping 9 gallons. This Energy Star certified dehumidifier is fit to quickly and effectively absorb moisture with minimal energy consumption for medium to large rooms
- DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND - We designed the Moisture Maniac Dehumidifier with convenience and style in mind. This dehumidifier sports a sleek, clean look with convenient built-in wheels and handles and a quiet fan that will do its job without you hearing it
- REAL EASY TO USE - It's a dehumidifier, not a rocket ship and our design reflects that. Simply adjust to your ideal moisture setting, let it run its continuous 24-hour cycle until the tank is full, where it'll then shut-off automatically. For added convenience, there’s also a drain hose outlet for continuous draining (NOTE: hose not included)
"We have a new construction home with a 1200 square foot open basement, no finished area. We'd been warned that new concrete takes about 5 years to cure and not to leave anything important (like books, clothing) on the floor as it could mold and mildew. In November we discovered some pretty significant condensation on one of the back corners of the basement and it was spreading. We also discovered behind some other furniture similar mildew on the same back wall. The 2 wood furniture items against that wall were also mildewing. Heating the basement was out of the question, so we explored the option of a dehumidifier and settled on this one based on reviews and the fact that it could work in an area up to 4000 square feet. We set it up on a Sunday, cleaned all the mildew off walls and other items, and waited. We had it on the setting to run constantly. At first it seemed like nothing was happening but by the next Sunday, the wet corner had completely dried up and no other areas or furniture were mildewing. My husband emptied it each morning even if it wasn't full to be safe. A few days later, he set it to "comfort" setting and everything continued to stay dry. During a very cold period of arctic type temps, the corner did start to show condensation again (it actually frosted up on the inside it was so cold!) so we set it to run continuously and it dried up this time in about 3 days. While we're still cautious as to what sits on the basement floor, we're much happier with the conditions thanks to this unit. I would highly recommend it!" - FS

"My couch cushions STUNK so bad like pee from my son who has been wetting the bed. I initially (before buying angry orange) had tried using vinegar before and aired it out but that didn't work. Of course I washed the outer cover of the couch cushion as well. So I came across angry orange and I mixed it as the instructions ask into a spray bottle and sprayed it onto the cushions that had the dried pee on them. The stuff is very strong smelling only when it is drying. I also want to tell you that I have a very good sense of smell so maybe I feel that the mixture is stronger than others might think it is but my daughter also thought it was strong smelling. However once the cushions dried you couldn't smell the orange smelling chemical smell anymore AND the URINE smell was no longer present I was so so happy because the smell was driving me crazy. The bottle is has a lot in it and i will not be using all of it but I could see animal owners using more of it than I would. I am giving it 5 stars because it completely took away the smell of urine!!! God sent product!" - Stacy

"We bought this because we live in an apartment complex and one of our neighbors smokes heavily... We had been smelling it in our apartment and it was making my girlfriends allergies/ asthma a lot worse. Bought this based off of reviews, listed sq ft it can clean, and the styling. It has honestly had a night and day difference, with it running her symptoms are almost entirely gone, and on the high setting it cleans the 500+- sq ft living room/ kitchen very quickly. We usually run it at the low or medium setting and you will barely even notice its on, its almost like a nice white noise machine. The option to change the outside filter color is just another plus, as you can customize it to fit the room its in. I'd hugely recommend this to anyone looking to cover a medium/ large space, you won't be disappointed! :)" - Jake

Features & Benefits
- Over 38+ Positive Reviews

"This ozone generator was used to sanatize a large yarn collection donated to my local yarn guild. The area Serve Pro owner told me how use an ozone generator to save bags & boxes of expensive yarn that smelled of damp & cigarette smoke. I read reviews, called companies & picked this unit. It worked as advertised, but because of the condition of the yarn, I did have to run the generator for several days in a sealed off room before the odor was completely removed. The Serv Prow owner told me it would take time. This saved $1000s of dollars of yarn we are now using for charity knitting. I have also used the generator to greatly reduced animal spray odor in a large plastic storage shed and to kill a musty smell in a bedroom that currently does not have an air return vent. If you own rental apartments, just buy one and keep it handy to use to remove smoke smell (and take the cost out of the deposit). I spent a lot of money renting these when I had a resort rental. The timer works and the company is a pleasure to deal with. They even provide extra ceramic plates (needed) with the unit." - H.

"I am so happy to discover the Green Gobbler products. I have used the PACS and the liquid to clear my condominium drains. I use the crystal PACS for the shower and kitchen sink drain but use the liquid for the bathroom sink drains because I have pop-up drain stoppers and the liquid is easier to manage for that type of arrangement. My shower drain was a gnarly issue and that's when I started to look for a solution. I originally purchased a few of the PACS at Bed Bath and Beyond and was thrilled to later find them on Amazon. Happily the shower is drain is working well. It took a couple of applications. For the first application I followed the instructions and poured hot water after waiting about 30 minutes. It helped but the drain still needed some attention. So I decided to pour the PAC down the drain and a little hot water to be sure it didn't sit on the drain grid after my morning shower and when I came home from work I poured a generous amount of hot water down the drain...at first I thought, oh well, not much happening and then KAZAM! I heard some sounds, smelled some odors and watched happily as the water started to flow more freely. Now, I use Green Gobbler on a maintenance basis and couldn't be happier!" - KC.

"My mother had a roof leak in a coat closet that went undetected for the summer. Needless to say, everything needed to be washed in order to get rid of the musty odor. That worked well for most items, but there where hats, boots, and furs that could not be washed. I thoroughly cleaned away the mold that had grown on the ceiling of the closet and hung up one of these bags on a coat hanger. Within a day or two all the mustiness was gone - even from the items that could not be washed!
I've used these in my house just to freshen up areas where the dogs sleep and to help with moisture in the bathroom. We did find that they don't get rid of rotten egg smell from the carpet of a car...don't ask, it was horrible!
I think they may be a bit overpriced for a bag of charcoal, but it they work, I guess they are worth it." - Lake

"Amazing capsules! Known now as the “real savior” because it saved me from excommunication! Probably wondering how or why. Well as the old saying goes, went over like a fart in church, is exactly what happened this past Sunday. Normally I don’t dare do such a thing during mass but I had one of those booty blaster burritos from the gas station for breakfast and half way through mass I felt them butt rumblies coming on. Lord knows I tried so hard to hold it in but that little devil squeeked right out the box. Luckily the singing was louder and no one was the wiser.
That was until miss agnus started coughing real bad then with in seconds the whole pew was choking and scrambling for the exit. I knew it was over. But not anymore! Thank you organic charcoal caps!" - AC

"We have a small pet that frequently throws up on our carpet. I decided to purchase a shampooer, and after reading the reviews decided to invest in this machine. The reviews didn't lie! I had previously used a Rug Doctor, and I was pleasantly surprised that this machine is so easy to use. It is much lighter weight than the rug doctor (professional), yet it picked up all the spots on our rug and area rug with ease, using the recommended Pet Soap with Oxy Clean. And, it dried so fast! I have also previously hired professional carpet cleaners, and it took 12 hours or more to dry. With this machine, it only took my rug 1-2 hours to dry. I really like the clear display--you can see it pulling up dirt and water (as shown on the commercials). I was a bit skeptical about this; however, it really works as shown. I have not yet used the handheld furniture attachment with hose but expect the same performance. I also appreciate the cleaning tool that is included--very helpful for removing hair or lint inside the clear head. At this point, I am extremely pleased with my purchase and would definitely buy it again. Great machine! 5 stars!" - Football Mom
