Charcoal Bag

Why would hang a bag of charcoal in the basement?

The place still smelled!!!

Redneck radon kit!

The “general” theory is charcoal absorbs odors…:smiley:

Years back, there was post on the science of odors and charcoal but it had to do with air filters and activated charcoal filters and such.

This looks like they used “Kingsford”…:D:D I hope they didn’t use lighter fluid on it…:wink:

Amish version of the glade plug in???

I went in a friends house and they had a layer of Kingsford all over the garage floor, trying to absorb pet odors. Didn’t work too well.

Tell him to light it…:mrgreen:

Tell him he bought the wrong kind.:roll:

Activated carbon

**Activated carbon**, also called **activated charcoal** or **activated coal**, is a form of [carbon]( that has been processed to make it extremely porous and thus to have a very large [surface area]( available for [adsorption]( or [chemical reactions]( [1]]( The word *activated* in the name is sometimes substituted by *active*. Due to its high degree of microporosity, just one [gram]( of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 500 m² (or about 2 tennis courts), as determined typically by [nitrogen]( gas adsorption. Sufficient activation for useful applications may come solely from the high surface area, though further chemical treatment often enhances the adsorbing properties of the material. Activated carbon is usually derived from [charcoal](
