Does the Bad Air Sponge really work?Getting that funky smell out of your house can be a real task, but Bad Air Sponge aims to make it as easy as can be. There’s nothing worse than an odor that won’t go away. Even if you keep things nice and clean there are still some smells that seem to linger on long after the source as been removed. If there were only a product that could knock out these smells for you as they occur. Is Bad Air Sponge that miracle product?

There are several products on the market for odor elimination. It’s big business. There are many different smells out there that people can’t tolerate, and having trouble keeping control of. Some of the most popular unpleasant smells are the ones left over from cooking, the ones around the trash can, and pet odors. It can be frustrating to try and combat these odors, but they still stay on.

Products like Glade try to cover up the smell, and Febreeze is the most mainstream product that is designed to eliminate the odors found in clothes as well as the air. Bad Air Sponge takes the same approach at attempting to eliminate the odor, rather than just covering it up.

The Claim
All you have to do is open the container and let it go to work. This is part of the draw to Bad Air Sponge because you don’t really have to do anything. Unlike an air freshener that you have to manually spray each time there’s a smell you don’t care for, with this you just open it up and it should keep up with odors as they occur.

The Cost
Bad Air Sponge is relatively inexpensive when you consider its effectiveness. You can pick it up for less than $12 and depending on how bad your odor problem is, it will last anywhere from a week to several months. You can even use it up to the very last bit by placing the near empty piece into your vacuum cleaner bag, or your trash can, taking the odor out of these places.

The Commitment
You don’t have to do much with the Bad Air Sponge. It’s really a set and forget type of product. If you find that it’s not working as well as you thought it would you should follow the steps it suggests for stronger odors. It will run out and need to be replaced at some point, but that’s easy enough, and the price is at a point where it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to keep using it.

Most people that have tried Bad Air Sponge are believers. The ones that didn’t like it probably haven’t used it according to the instructions. There are ways you can make it even more effective than it is. You can take the entire unit out of the tub and place it on its lid. This is recommended if you have a really strong odor that is overpowering your place.

You can also put it in front of a window, the breeze will flow through it and allow a mix of fresh air and allow Bad Air Sponge to permeate throughout a larger area.

Final Bad Air Sponge Review

Bad Air Sponge is very effective at eliminating odors that occur in common places, like the kitchen and bathroom. If you have pets it’s good at neutralizing pet odors, and if you have tried other odor eliminators without success you might find that this is the one product that finally works for you.

With so many choices of products that allow you to freshen up the smell of your home, it’s hard to decide which one to go with. It’s always best to eliminate things rather than cover them up, so the approach taken by Bad Air Sponge is a solid one.

Our Recommendation
Grab yourself a Bad Air Sponge. With its low cost and fantastic user feedback, chances are it’ll solve your various odor problems and return things back to normal. If you find that it isn’t working the way you thought it would, make sure to follow the directions that are included for stronger odors and you should see some improvement.

  1. If it’s a big smell don’t waste your money on the 14 oz size, go for the 2lb. We had stray cats get into our basement and use it as a bathroom, and didn’t know until we turned on the furnace. Kept asking, “What the heck is that smell?” It was so horrendous downstairs we gagged when we tried to clean it. A 2lb Bad Air Sponge neutralized the odor. The 14 oz upstairs not as good. I’d love to buy a 4lb or 5lb size in case something like this happens again, but can’t find one bigger than the 2lb.

  2. I use this product to remove lingering smells from bedrooms and wardrobes, especially since I live with smokers. It really does work to remove odors, and the bedroom I first tried it in has not had the smell come back even though I removed the Bad Air Sponge after a day. I plan on buying more to put throughout the house.

  3. I love love love the bad air sponge it is awesome it is worth the money it eliminates odors but it has a pleasant non-toxic smell that it gives off while it is absorbing odors… I have put it everywhere in my house I have used it in my car and the other day I got ready to sell my car and I took out the little bit that was left and when I got in the car the next day to drive it it smelled very musty so the bad Air Sponge is awesome! Comment about fabreez or other sprays is that they mask the smells with artificial additives which are not good for our lungs, really bad for babies and elderly….

  4. Shirley it sure does work for my neighbors ethnic foods that smell funky my 4 cats litter broccoli burning foods I even saved the empty container I hang them on my doorway for my Spanish neighbors foods pot smokers city odors that pollution you name it I get them through eBay they come fast molds from air conditioner I take them out put it on the lid blow a fan on them not even 10 gonzo work for those odors of that food you just have to read how to use them I like the industrial strength

  5. This bad air is right down the best product takes out ethnic cooking Spanish foods cat boxes broccoli fish air conditioner molds burnt foods I suffer with an illness where I cannot put up with smells especially Spanish foods nothing took that off 4 cats litter odors this is used even empty container I saved them old ones I hang on doorway and I blow a fan on them I take them out of container pot odors street odors body odors so if anybody says they don’t work or they prefer lousey febreeze which is made with gluten wheat you are not using this correctly this is the dam product that was ever invented! It saved my life

  6. It seems that if the place smells the management should find and eradicate the source. It can’t be good for the residents, plus deterring visitors.

  7. love bad air sponge, rat died in an area we couldn’t get to, worst smell ever, bad air sponge absorbed odor overnight, also took cigarette smoke out of clothes in the closet. the best product ever used.

  8. I saw this product at BedBathBeyond so I thought I’d give it a try. I had high hopes. It was worthless. Complete waste of money!!

  9. Febreze is a product that masks odors and due to the chemical scent acts to dull your smell senses (not all chemicals are listed on the product, no mandate to do so). Febreze does not eliminate odors.The reviewer says, Bad Air Sponge takes the same approach as Febreze. That is concerning. I was hoping Bad Air Sponge could help get rid of a chemical smell but my guess is no; it would only mask it.
    It is actually quite easy to get rid of organic odors using vinegar or backing soda or a combination of both but chemical smells are difficult.
    A tip: A great odor eliminator is Earth Friendly Products Everyday Stain & Odor Remover. It has worked on fabrics without discoloring and no headache inducing or senses hindering chemical fragrance. Great on removing odor and stains as the product states.

  10. It’s a bit pricey, but it works out for me! I have serious allergies like I get sick and nauseous from Freebreeze, Spic & Span, air fresheners, scented candles ( I nearly died from scented candles at a relative’s house) and the like..I use Lysol. Just spray in the bathroom after some one uses the toilet! Not too much, but I like to buy more Bad Air Sponge… Bad Air Sponge costs kinda HIGH..I buy more if they LOWER the price!!!! I would love to buy more Bad Air Sponge if they LOWER the price!!!!!

  11. I thought the point of air sponges was to absorb odour not put a scent into the air. Any spray product will do that.

  12. We’ve used the Nature’s Air Sponge for years (they work awesomely well) but could only find them at a much higher cost this last time we needed them, so we tried switching to the Bad Air Sponge. They both apparently work on similar technology, but the Bad Air Sponge didn’t seem to work nearly as well for trash or pet odors. We usually keep these in each room with our cats’ litter boxes (which also have the trash cans) and there’s been a noticeable difference in odor control with the Bad Air Sponge– so we’ll be spending the extra next time and going back to the Nature’s Air Sponge.

  13. My mother is in a assisted living facility and every time my husband & I went to visit we encountered an odor throughout the facility. This odor over time became over whelming and made us want to leave earlier each time we visited. I goggled Bad Air Sponge and decided to try it out. I have to say it works. I wish the assisted living facility my mother is in would use this product every where. Looking for a great price go to Air Purification Solutions, LLC (NJ), they gave us a free sample to try and there pricing was the lowest I could find. Great customer service……

  14. I was thinking that the Bad Air Sponge was a joke until I read the reviews. I have a smoker in the house and try every kind of sprays and fresheners to remove the smoke odor, but never does the trick. I will try it and place it near the vent to see if it can freshen up the air. I am also hoping it can help with the odor from the cat box too. As much as I spend on air fresheners this would be cost effective if it works. I will post an update to let you all know how it works in my home. Thanks for the reviews.

  15. I love the bad air sponge. The trick to using this product is to place it near your air conditioning or heater air intake vent. I have an electric system about two feet off of the floor with the air intake vent below. I take the grilled vent cover off and place the sponges (2) on the floor (out of the container on the lid) and the air being drawn in circulates them througout the entire house. The one pound containers last about 30 days but they are well worth it , considering their is a smoker in the house. I am seriously considering purchasing the 35 lb. container. I think the reason Jason (last comment) had doubts about effectiveness is when you first use it you can notice a distinct odor from the sponge similar to a lemony air freshener. I think you become accustomed to that smell and don’t notice it after a while.

  16. My wife came home from the shop with one of these sponges the other day and although at first it did seem to work, i’m not sure for how long it was fully effective.
    I’ve been a little disappointed in how long this sponge lasts. for the money i was hoping it would last longer. So far we’ve had it a couple of weeks, and whilst it’s not a massive amount of money, i’d like to see it last a month at least.
    I think i’ll stick to Fabreeze and similar.
