Remove Odors and Humidity in Your Home with One Secret Ingredient
There's no need to do any prepping and mixing, too
It's safe to say that every homeowner, renter or otherwise, wants a sweet-smelling home. Sometimes, we even go out of our way to research hacks that can keep it crisp and clean for longer. However, in a tropical country like ours, it could be tough as humidity is the mortal enemy of trying to preserve scents in closed spaces.
Don't fret, we've found a two-in-one solution. This magic ingredient can get rid of dampness and funky odors at the same time—it's called binchotan.
Originally discovered by the Japanese, they have found that the kiln-hardened charcoal mixed with sand, soil, ash and a light coating of dust—which are all believed to contain negative ions—is very effective for absorbing moisture and smells from ambient air.
To use it, all you need to do is place a small stack of it in a basket or a glass jar in parts of your home where it can get pretty humid. While it won't leave any unique aroma, it has the power to neutralize the space before you add a spritz of air freshener. Remember to take the pieces out in the sun every few weeks to dry them out and get them ready to work their magic again.
