Eliminate Odors With These Bamboo Charcoal–Filled Linen Bags
Sweaty running clothes. The litter box. That odd funk emanating from the back of the fridge. Unpleasant scents can transform a home, particularly as we spend more time indoors, into an olfactory purgatory. Enter Moso Natural, a line of odor-eliminating linen bags filled with an unexpected ingredient: bamboo. The California-based brand is named after a species of the woody grass (pronounced “MOH-soh”), which it sources from China’s Fujian province, dries, and fires in a kiln to create porous charcoal that attracts and stores particles from the air. When placed in the sun, UV rays clear out the material’s cavities, creating more space to trap unsavory scents. Moso Natural tailor-made its bags, complete with a handy hanging hole, for closets, bathrooms, and kitchens; it also designed pouches that slide into shoes and sit discreetly in car interiors. Each lightweight sack works its magic for about two years. After that, the company recommends sprinkling the charcoal onto the soil in your garden, where the carbon-rich substance will help plants thrive.
