PURGGO Perfection

   Let’s face it; there are a lot of automobile air fresheners on the market.  You can drive in a vehicle that smells like a Pina Colada, a vanilla cookie, or the ever-popular pine tree.  The problem with these is they all cover the stink with a stink of their own.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t find anything pleasing about fast-food/dogs/artificial scent combos.  What is wrong with eliminating the odors and replacing it with the smell of nothing?  There is a lot to be said for fresh air.
   That is the idea behind the incredible PURGGO Car Air Eco-Purifier.  It all began when the inventors were trying to discover a way to eliminate the odor of a lovable Golden Retriever from their friend’s car.  Air fresheners, sprays, and baking powders were not an option due to the dog’s sensitivities and the owner’s asthma.  Following the advice of their dear Grandmother, they discovered that bamboo charcoal has been used in Asia for thousands of years to purify both air and water. 
   It made sense that an air eliminator using a renewable resource such as bamboo charcoal would allow air to pass through the pores, and cavities trapping the odor particles inside.  PURGGO is made with natural hemp and designed using Japanese simplicity as well as, Zen philosophy.  I love the look of it.  No more little rearview mirror trees for me!
   The biggest question is; does it actually work?  Let me tell you the experiment we used here on the bayou.  First, you need to understand that we tested it on my husband’s 1997 Chevy truck.  He bought the truck new and has taken impeccable care of it.  The truck has been our go-to vehicle for traveling with dogs.  Recently, we bought a new SUV and with a new wire kennel, it is now our dog mobile.  This has left Skipper’s poor truck locked and left sitting idle in our garage.  Last week, we decided to take the truck for a ride to keep its motor purring.  Whew!  After being closed up for a few days, the truck had a musty dog odor.  It was the perfect trial for the PURGGO.  I’ll be honest; I wasn’t expecting it to get rid of the smell completely.  When Skipper went out to test it four or five hours later, the unpleasant odor was gone.  He called me out to smell it for myself.  There were no masked odors and no nauseating fruity/flowery smells.  The smell was just a neutral odor.

   PURGGO is versatile and works in your vehicle, bathroom, or over the litter box.  You can hang it or set it out of the way.  The odor eliminating power of bamboo charcoal is 4x more porous than regular charcoal.  It is all natural, non-toxic, and lasts for an unbelievable 365 days!  Most car air freshener only last 45 days.  PURGGO can even remove tobacco smells.
   The awesome people at PURGGO want one of my readers to experience this incredible air purifier.  We are giving away one PURGGO Car Air Eco-Purifier and will announce the big winner on BFTB NETWoof News April 13th.  Enter on our Rafflecopter and be sure to come back each day to tweet!

  1. Well, although it's a very good idea not to have overwhelming scents, a neutraliser is a great idea, I personally don't know what's wrong with eau de musty dog!

  2. Sounds like a great product. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. I just have to comment on how much I love that tongue.

  4. Well, first of all, I'm sure I don't have any bad smells to myself...maybe Bailie or Katie do, but not me! We got a Critterzone with a car kit we can use on road trips. It works well and other than that, the windows are open when it is nice out. Glad you boys are enjoying a better smelling ride!

  5. I have to admit I usually HATE the smell of automobile air fresheners. But if Purggo goes for neutral, I should definitely check it out. Have a lovely end of the week.

  6. Oh, I am loving this!!! Is this open to Canada too?

  7. I think we could've used that yesterday after our trip to the beach. Ma says there was an odd "wet dog" smell in Daddy's truck. :-)

  8. that's a perfect idea... to neutralize the smell instead to cover it with another scent. 4 paws for this intention... do you think I can use it too when they say I would need a bath?

  9. Gosh this sounds great - We bought Dad's pickup used and the previous owners were smokers. Even after a few years the odor still lingers. And of course in mom's car there is that doggy odor!

  10. One of my foster puppies peed in my car and despite trying tons of products there is still a lingering odor!

  11. What a cool product! Thanks for sharing.

  12. This sounds like a cool product. We don't travel a lot with the dogs now, but once we start swimming we'll definitely be getting that wet dog smell. Plus I sure might like to try it for the kitty litter.

  13. This sounds like a really useful thing!

  14. YES YES YES - we know only to well the icky doggie smell that is left in our cars and so many of the air fresheners just add to the smell and don't get rid of it. this sounds like it would be a great option - providing it isn't too expensive.

  15. How interesting! Mom needs one for under her desk cuz that is where Stanley likes to go to phart BOL!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  16. Leak & smell proof sounds good to me!!
