Smelleze Reusable Basement Smell Deodorizer Pouch
Eliminated Musty Basement Odor
By Robert M. (Philadelphia) [7.30.2016]
Last summer we had a leak in our basement due to a problem in our foundation. The result was that the basement became extremely damp and I started worrying that a lot of our stuff stored down there would get spoiled as a result of the unpleasant musty smell that had accumulated down there. I had to find a way out. So I chose Smelleze Reusable Basement Smell Eliminator Pouches, thanks to my neighbor’s recommendation. They worked right away for me and have managed to control both the dampness and mildew odor. They are the best! I have been regularly using and reusing these pouches ever since I discovered them with great results. I love this product. I think people who face this kind of problem in their basements should definitely consider Smelleze. It’s very effective and available at a good price too.
Basement Odor? What Basement odor?
By Shelley (Port Washington) [2.1.2016]
I was tired of the dirty smelly basement odor. This stench was intolerable to me. Slowly and steadily the aroma started permeating the rest of my home. My trusted neighbor suggested using Smelleze® Basement Smell Deodorizer Pouch which I did. I smelled a difference in a matter of hours and the bad basement odor was gone by the next day. I am really satisfied with this product and highly recommend it. Now I’m going to use Smelleze® in other parts of my house that stink badly.
Got My Basement Smelling Clean Again!
By Elizabeth (Newark) [12.27.2015]
I was stricken with a particularly nasty basement smell condition that made it unusable. I was distressed over the situation. I had tried just about everything from expensive electronic air purifiers to dehumidifiers to get the musty basement smell out. Nothing worked, until my niece stumbled upon your wonderful site and got me the Smelleze® Reusable Basement Smell Eliminating Pouches. The deodorizer is a godsend! All I had to do was simply hang the pouches in my basement and the smell was gone within a couple of days. It’s also inexpensive, reusable, and doesn’t require power! I can just place it in sunlight to refresh and reuse. It will last for years and save me tons of money.

DORIS: We bought a small house several years ago. The weather was such that the furniture in it now smells like a basement. Can you help me?
ANSWER: It sounds like the furniture has taken on moisture due the dampness in the house causing it to smell musty like a basement. Use SmellezeÂ® Reusable Basement Smell Deodorizing Pouches to draw the mildew smell out of the furniture by placing pouches in each room. Furthermore, place the pouches inside your air ducts to filter the smelly air and to lower the humidity from the recirculating air.
CHUCK: how many bags should be used in a basement that’s approximately 1800 square feet in size?
ANSWER: We recommend using 1 Smelleze pouch for about every 150 square feet. So for a basement that has an area of about 1,800 square feet, use 10-12 pouches.
RONALD: My basement smells like a sewer. How do I fix the sewer smell?
ANSWER: I recommend placing our Smelleze Reusable Chemical Odor Filter Pouches in the basement to eliminate the sewer gas odor. This product will eliminate hydrogen sulfide which is the chemical that is responsible for causing the smell of sewer gas in your basement. You can scatter Smelleze Natural Chemical Absorption Granules on the floors as well to soak up the sewage odors from there.
FRANK: I have a basement that is 10 feet wide by 20 feet long and 8 feet tall and it smells like mildew or mold. Will the Smelleze bags get the basement smell away, and if so, how many bags would I need for that size of basement? (note: it’s constructed out of concrete not wood framing).
ANSWER: Yes, SMELLEZE Reusable Basement Smell Eliminators will remove mildew and mold odors and is especially designed for this function. I would suggest using about 3 pouches in your basement and spacing them out roughly equally in the middle. You can either hang them on the top or just place them on something. Refresh monthly by exposing to direct sunlight for a day or microwaving for 3-4 minutes and reusing. It will last for years and keep your air clean!
LYN: Do you ship your products to the UK. Your basement odour remover pouches seem just what I am looking for. Can’t find anything similar in the UK. I am not shopping for a company just for my own house use.
ANSWER: Yes, we ship daily to the UK so itâ€™s quick and inexpensive. This is a great eco-friendly product that will get rid of all the typical musty basement odours and work for years.
DF: Had basement remodeled after buying in-laws house. They had 2 instances of water problems. Completely removed carpet, repainted walls, and installed new Pergo flooring. Still have a problem with a musty smell. Basement is finished, used for family room. Any suggestions? Description is 2 separate rooms plus finished bath and laundry room in basement. Walls are restored barn wood that was varnished over plus stripped and painted walls for rest of basement.
ANSWER: You probably have some residual vapors from the water damage. In addition, natural gases from the soil can also permeate the basement causing a musty smell. I suggest placing SMELLEZE Reusable Basement Smell Removal Pouches in each of the rooms. Use 1 pouch/150 sq. ft. This will continually absorb any off-gassing smell you have or emissions from the soil and prevent the basement from smelling musty.
MICHELLE: We have a beach home that suffered water damage in the basement. The walls are concrete as are the floors. There is one interior wall in the damaged area that is drywall. We now have a very bad musty odor that we cannot eliminate. We removed the baseboards which did help. We cleaned the floors and walls with vinegar, have used a fan to dry, and have used many tubs of mildew/scent absorber tubs. Any suggestions would be most appreciated!
ANSWER: Sorry to hear about your problem but we can help. I would suggest placing basement smell destroyer pouches in the affected areas. This product is engineered to absorb and remove musty odors that can originate form water damage. Unlike scented products, this is a true odor neutralizer that gets to the source of the problem by actually removing the chemicals causing the basement to reak. Since odors of this type can degas slowly over a period of time, the product is designed to be reusable for well over a year so it will outlast the problem and you wonâ€™t need to buy replacements. We suggest using 1 pouch/150 sq. ft. for the best results.
