Odors In The Basement


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Place clean coffee cans filled with charcoal briquette's (not those with lighter fluid) around your basement, they will absorb basement smells. You can change the briquette's every 3 or 4 months, you can tell when they need changing. I have a large basement and have 6 cans down there.

    Thank you so much for this idea! I will try it immediately. Lots better than constantly spraying air freshner.
