We recently discovered The Moso Bag and it looks like a great way to minimize odors and keep trouble spots under control (think the laundry hamper or gym bag).
The Moso Bag was developed as a solution to a couple of problems. You can relate to air fresheners for the car that are packed with chemicals. Same with spray fresheners that are often deployed around soiled laundry.
To answer this challenge, the company set out to create a functional air purifier that is completely safe for people and the environment. The magic ingredient comes from China, more specifically Moso bamboo charcoal where locals call it the “black diamond.”
The product may seem too good to be true. It’s eco-friendly, sustainable, affordable, and safe. In fact people throughout Asia use it to not only purify the air, but also to purify water and in some cases it is ingested to help detoxify the body.
Through research, Moso Bags found that the bamboo charcoal works well to remove odors, bacteria, harmful pollutants and allergens from the air. It is also a natural dehumidifier, helping to prevent mold, mildew and excess moisture.
Aside from the laundry, the product can also be used in garbage pails, and event refrigerators and freezers in lieu of baking soda. To maintain the Moso bag over its life cycle of approximately 2 years, simply place the Moso Bag outside in the sun for an hour once a month. The UV rays from the sun clear out the pores of the bamboo charcoal increasing the absorbing properties of the bag.
After two years of use, the Moso Bag can be added to any garden, lawn, or indoor plant. The bamboo charcoal when added to the soil can help plants absorb moisture and nutrients.
