Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Althea very good at removing odors
I first tried this product last summer at the Home Depot on 7 mile rd. in Detroit,Mi. My mother's home had a musty odor from the basement. It was a combination of sewage gas and mold. It the process of doing the repairs this product saved my nose. I bought several for my mom. When I returned the New Orleans area I could not find it at my local Gretna, La store so I ordered them on line. I picked them up at the store and use them for my cat liter area. It does the job and really last. I tried several products over the years but so far this has been the best. The fragrance it light and is not noticeable after a few weeks but it still keeps the air smelling clean. I also noticed some products cause my eyes to be water and my nose to burn when I am too close to them. I have not had that issue. I will be ordering more until my store can get them in stock.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Charlotte Smelled great but..
The product did not freshen the air. I put one in my son's room and it did nothing except sit on a shelf unseen. I also placed one in my bathroom and there was no difference there either. I thought maybe there wasn't as much moisture in the air as I had previously believed. The third receptacle I didn't bother to even open. I had the two others in use for about 3 weeks at least. Was not pleased with the product despite the reviews.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PS724 Disappointed
I really, really hoped to enjoy this lovely aroma throughout my bathroom and in my son's room,however,the only timeI did was when I held the container directly under my nose. I assumed they were "old" or maybe I didn't have as much moisture as I originally had thought for the product to "work". I returned the three that I bought but i would try other Damp Rid products as I have heard nothing but good about them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Willwgp Takes Out the Smells!
This is a very easy product and does its job. Place it in the car, bathroom, living room, pretty much anywhere smells are present. It contains and absorbs the smells pretty well! I have one in my car, and another in the litter box. You can hang it if you prefer. What else can I say? It doesn't seem to give off the flavor unless you got up close to sniff it, but it gets rid of the bad smells, and that's really all that matters. Should last over 60 days. Definitely buy one if you're looking to take out the smells.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pappy Absorbs offensive odors
We have our cat's litter box in our utility room and wanted something to keep its odor in check. So we got the Genie since it has a charcoal filter inside. That does a great job of absorbing the offensive odor while replacing it with a nice pleasant vanilla/lavender scent. We hang it right above the box using the built in plastic hanger loop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarterB Works Even Better Than Expected
I didn't have high expectations that this product could clear a strong pet odor for the space size that it claims. After a couple hours of placing it, I couldn't tell much of a difference. However by the next day the odor was undetectable!...even getting down close to the "problem areas".
The vanilla scent it releases is faint enough to freshen the air but not too strong to dominate the room. It says it can last up to 60 days and we'll see how the room smells at that time. For the price it is on par with the many air fresheners are on the market and even less expensive than some. Also, it does not require an electrical socket.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevlar Does the job but large rooms are a challenge
This does the job but should be confined to smaller spaces. Larger rooms over power the product. The smell is potent if used in regular sized rooms which helps to eliminate unwanted odors and replace them with vanilla. Sometimes it is hard to tell if it is eliminating the odor or just overpowering it. Does the job though for when you are in the kitchen and cooking.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pohonui Great for musty closets
I like this odor eliminator. I wish it had more of a vanilla scent and less of the lavender, but it worked to remove a damp musty smell in a closet in the older part of the house and that was what I was looking to do. I like the fact that I can hang it or place it flat. It does its job and I will probably buy these again, maybe with a different scent, but it did work well.
