Smoke odor is not only detrimental to your health, it is also very difficult to eliminate because smoke often permeates into the fibers of everyday items. Most air fresheners cover the smell without eliminating it.

After being shut tight for over twenty years, our little cottage had a very strange, musty smell. We pulled up the tile, bleached the walls, painted everything in sight and it still smelled! After dealing with this for over six years, I found Room Shocker while searching the internet once again for that "magic bullet" that might rid us of this awful smell. My husband called it my "magic crystals" and thought I was crazy. Well was he ever surprised when, after using just one Room Shocker that was intended for a 400 sf room, EVERY trace of that stinky odor in our 650 sf cottage was gone! We had taken out all the furniture except for two mattresses that were headed for the dump. Now they smell as fresh as brand new mattresses! From here on out, we plan on using Room Shocker every spring when we open up the cottage. What a treat when something advertised actually works as described!
This product is fantastic. We used it in our basement that has a real musty smell in the spring and fall when heat or air is not running. We use a dehumidifier but the smell is still there, we used this product about 4 weeks ago and the smell has not returned yet. Love it, even if we have to use it every spring it is well worth the money.
We have rental property & had to find something that worked against left over cat smells even after everything had been scrubbed. We took a chance on these I were very happily surprised. They actually work! We just bought a manufactured house that had been abandoned with animals inside. The workers refused to go in because of the smell, we got the flooring out then set off 4 of these & are now living in the home ourselves without even a hint of animal smells. I VERY HIGHLY recommend this product.
