Remove Musty Smells Naturally with Ever Bamboo Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
We all have that one spot in our house that it seems like no matter what you do, there's always an underlying odor that can be unpleasant, at best... downright obnoxious at worst. You know exactly what I am talking about, don't you?
We actually have two such places in our home. Our downstairs bathroom had a minor leak a couple of years ago. Not enough to need to replace the hardwood flooring, but enough to do some slight damage to a couple of slats in the flooring. Every so often, you can smell a bit of wet wood in there. Plus, the trash can in there is used for diapers for the couple of babies that I do child care for. Not to mention, it's a bathroom...of course there will be odors at times.

The other area in our home is an under the stairs closet. At one time, we used this closet to store our whole family's shoes, shoe racks and all. However, over time, we realized that the closet reeked of STINKY FEET. The odor seeped out from under the door and became intolerable. The shoes were moved to the garage, but months later, there is still a slight smell of feet. 
Ever Bamboo entered our home about a month ago. We received a bamboo Room Deodorizer and Dehumidifier (RV $9.99) which is just the right size for our downstairs bathroom (which is a half bathroom). We also received a bamboo Closet Deodorizer and  Dehumidifier (RV $9.99). This was perfect for the under the stairs closet. As a bonus, we also received  a bamboo Shoe Deodorizer (RV $9.99)  which was great for Michael to use in his work shoes after spending a lot of time on his feet at work.

Here is the Room Deodorizer and Dehumidifier in its package.

This is what the Room Deodorizer and Dehumidifier looks like.

This is how we have used the Room Deodorizer and Dehumidifier.  Since we have put it in the bathroom, we have noticed a reduction in odors in there. The odors have not been eliminated, but a reduction is better than where we were so I am happy for it. I am hoping over time that the odors will dissipate further though.

This is how we used the Closet Deodorizer and Dehumidifier. I really like that it is slotted to fit over the closet bar. We have noticed a much bigger reduction of the odor of stinky feet than we noticed in the bathroom. If I stand in the closet and breathe in very deeply repeatedly, I will get a slight whiff of stinky feet. But if I have to try that hard to smell it, I am perfectly fine with the results.
This is what the Shoe Deodorizer looks like. Unfortunately, I can't show you how we have used this one because Michael keeps his work shoes in his car after work. When he leaves for work, he removes the Shoe Deodorizers, puts his shoes on and leaves the Shoe Deodorizers on his front passenger seat. After he gets home from work, he takes off his work shoes, puts the Shoe Deodorizers inside, and comes in the house. So I never see them because I so seldom go in his car. But, when I asked him about the Shoe Deodorizers and if he had noticed a difference since he began using them, he said that he had mainly noticed a difference in the sweat. His feet sweat a lot in his work shoes. Leaving them overnight in his car in the garage, sometimes they didn't fully air dry before he went back to work the next day. He says that with the Shoe Deodorizers, they are air drying better, but he hasn't noticed a difference in the smell yet.
From Ever Bamboo:
After seeing bamboo charcoal products in Asia for the first time in 2006, I see an opportunity to bring it to North America. Conventional odor and moisture removal products are often chemical-based, toxic, and heavily packaged. Wouldn't it be nice for Nature Taking Care of Nature!

Ever Bamboo is:
ALL NATURAL bamboo charcoal
UNSCENTED ♦ eliminating instead of masking odors
RECHARGEABLE under sunshine every 30-60 days ♦ LASTS UP TO ONE YEAR
RECYCLABLE ♦ mix spent charcoal granules with soil
[sustainable + reusable + recyclable]

Bamboo charcoal is produced from the rapidly growing moso bamboo. It has countless tiny holes that give the resulting bamboo charcoal its revolutionary abilities as both a deodorizer and dehumidifier. Purify by Nature!   

I especially love that I can recharge them soon since it will be thirtyish days at that point. I am hoping for better results after the first recharge!
