Gonzo Basement and Garage Odor Eliminator
Gonzo Basement and Garage Odor Eliminator
Gonzo Odor Eliminator for Basements and Garages is the best way
to keep musty areas smelling fresh. It eliminates odors
without perfumes or cover-ups, using non-toxic and environmentally
safe volcanic minerals. These minerals have a negative charge,
allowing them to attract positively charged odors and trap them for
good. Contained in a net bag, the minerals act like a magnet,
drawing in unpleasant odors and removing them from the air.
The Gonzo Odor Eliminator for Basements and Garages can be used
for a number of applications. Use it to eliminate pet odors; airborne bacterial odors; smoke odors from cigarettes,
fireplaces, and chimneys; odors caused by trash, lawn mowers, and
gardening supplies; musty odors from mold and mildew; and any
unpleasant smells found in basement and garage areas.
To use, simply place the net bag in any area containing odors.
One 2 lb. bag is effective for an area of up to 600 square feet.

We have purchased the Gonzo Basement odor eliminator stones a few times now. We are happy to report that they work quite well. Unfortunately after our first purchase we did not realize we can refresh them by setting them out in the sunlight. We are now doing that to extend the life of the rocks.

Customer Q & A
Q1: What feedback do you have on fireplace odors.
These will help with smoke. They used to make Smoke Odor Eliminators, but have since ped that product b/c of low demand. In general though, Smoke, Basement, Pet... all the same thing. The only difference is the packaging. They do help with smoke, but with smoke in particular, if the concentrations are high enough it takes several of these to make a difference. For fireplace odors, a small air purifier with carbon might be your best bet. Even a Honeywell, which doesn't pack granulated carbon which is best for removing odors and smoke, would help 50150 or 50250 provided you replace the prefilter on schedule. The prefilter in those units has some carbon that for light to medium odors, it does work pretty well. Hope that helps.
Q2: I have the lava rocks and love them. I put them outside in the sun and asked my husband to bring them in since i had to go out of town. It rained on them for two days, will this effect them at all.
You may notice a slight decrease in their performance for a while, but if thoroughly dried, they should bounce back to absorb odors as they did before.
Additionally, certain types of lava rock are used in water filtration. Though not ideal for this use, they do work. So, like activated carbon, whether used to filter liquids or molecules in the air, they are effective.
Q3: How long does one bag last?
How often do they need to be replaced?
Each basement odor eliminator will last about 6 months before being recharged. This will vary depending on where you are using it and how strong the odors are. I've generally seen about four months of use before the odor starts to creep back in to my shoe closet. To recharge you simple place the bag in the sun for a couple hours and it will release any trapped odors. The bags can go through this recharge process several times before you may need to eventually replace them.

Gonzo Basement Odor Eliminator
Living with two cats means my wife and I have to maintain their
sewer system, the kitty litter box. We have experimented putting it
in many places in our house trying to overcome the unpleasant visual
and effluvial odors that are associated with it. Currently our
latest solution has the litter box in a closet in our downstairs
playroom area. This closet is not vented and it is dark, and because
of that it smells. My wife had heard about this product researching
solutions for kitty litter odor problems.
At a glance, the Gonzo Odor Bag looks like nothing more than a sack
full of porous rocks. That is what it is. It's the nature of the
rocks that make it effective, they are volcanic rocks with an
immeasurable number of visible pores. It's these visible pores that
make the Basement Odor Eliminator work.
We followed instructions and hung the bag in the closet above the
litter box. Simply put, it worked. We came back to the area the next
morning and noticed a distinguishable difference, the odor had
vanished and the small area seemed cleaner.
We were curious about the life of the product, the instructions
state to recharge / rejuvenate the lava rock, take the bag and set
it out in the sun every 6 months or once you start noticing odors
again. We plan on doing just that.
Until then, we have solved a problem that we struggled with for a
long time. We even considered putting an air purifier in the closet
but because there was no electrical receptacle and because the room
was so small we could not figure out a way to make that work. This
solution is as effective, and much more cost effective than an air
We are very happy with this product and have no reservations about
recommending it to others. My only concern is with its effectiveness
in a larger size room. We are using the product in a walk-in pantry
