How long will the Earth Care Odor Remover Bag last?
Typically the bag will last 3 months after it is removed from the plastic. (It will last indefinitely in the plastic.)
It does depend on the types of odors it is being used on.
For example, for a dead rodent odor it will typically last 3 months, so the bag will typically outlast the stink from the carcass.
If it is being used for strong cigarette odor it may only last a few days or weeks.
How you can I tell if the bag is no longer removing odors?
If you hang a bag and the odor is gone for a time period but returns, that indicates that the bag is “full” and you need to add more bags. Or if you smell the bag and it has an odor that also indicates the bag is “full”.
What do you mean the bag is “full”?
Think of the bag as a sponge. Odor is drawn into the bag and the Earth Care Mineral inside absorbs the odor. The molecular structure of Earth Care consists of billions of microscopic pores, which gives it a large surface area (exceeding the size of a football field). This enables Earth Care to absorb phenomenal amounts of odors. Once “full” it becomes saturated and can no longer absorb odors.
