    I found that these were excellent at controlling – really, completely eliminating – odor in shoes that didn’t present too much of a challenge… you know, your everyday shoes (maybe you wear socks with them, maybe you don’t, but either way nothing too crazy’s going on). For athletic shoes, however, I found that these were not sufficient. Three weeks into a new pair, my son’s soccer cleats reek – even with absolutely faithful use of these inserts – and his gym shoes are starting to head south, too.

    Ultimately, these can do only so much. So, I’m still in search of something to control the cleats/gym shoes odor problem.

    Great for backpacks, gym bags, work boots and more! Work fairly fast and don’t leave behind any weird scents of their own!, August 15, 2015

    These are great little deoderizer bags! I tested mine in a few different senarios so far and have been really happy with the outcome of all of them. I think they are a great product and very well made. The stitching is well done and the grommet is sturdy and handy to have if you would like to hang them somewhere. It worked quickest in the tightest space I tested, which was a small container that I keep my gardening gloves in. It had devloped a weird smell so I left one of these in for a few hours. When I checked back the scent was gone! It acted really quickly in clearing that up, which was a plus.

    They made quick work of my husband’s backpack too. He uses it for his work stuff, lunches, and often stuffs his gym clothes in it, so this was no small feat. I put a bag in overnight not expecting much change since it smelled pretty rank in there, but by morning I could not detect a scent!

    His work boots were a bit tougher, but slowly the scent became more bearable over time. This was more difficult of a challenge since he does wear them daily and works in swampy conditions, but after 4 days or so the boots strange smell dissapated and they smell more neutral and possibly a bit more like leather again! I do have to put them back in every night however to keep the scents at bay.

    Overall I’m incredibly happy with this product! I love that it doesn’t have a strong smell of its own that merely covers up any pre-existing smells. It actually eliminates them and in pretty good timing too. The bags are fairly big, so they may hang out a bit if you put them in children’s shoes, but I think they’ll still fit fine. I was told they can be left in the sun for a while to recharge, and that you can disspose of them safely in the garden even because they are charcoal. I recieved mine free for review purposes.

    Everyone knows the frustration of unwanted odors, whether from trash, restrooms, or stinky shoes, so I was happy to try out these deodorizer bags filled with bamboo charcoal from HomePro Goods. These are nicely designed with a sturdy canvas exterior, large grommet hole for hanging up, and slim shape that is easy to fit into tight spaces. As a scientist by day, I know well that activated charcoal powder is excellent for removing odors and impurities from air or liquid mixtures, so it makes sense that works for home applications as well. These are perfectly sized to slip into shoes or can be hung up in a closet or other space that can use some odor remediation. I’ve been using them in my tennis shoes and I really notice a difference. I also put one up on a shelf in our downstairs bathroom to help with odors there. They look nice enough that guests won’t even realize that they are deodorizers!

    I’m very glad that I was able to order this as a free promotional sample in order to evaluate and provide my honest review.
