Ever Bamboo Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I can tell you, our house has some serious funks. 

Hockey gear    Man shoes

We often keep the hockey gear in the garage because it is full of funk. We always keep the shoes out there. Does my garage smell? OH YES. 

I was very pleased to be able to review some anti funk devices- in the form of Ever Bamboo. 

What is this all about? They sell products made of bamboo charcoal that naturally removes odors from funky places. This is right up our alley. 

The first product I got to sample, was their soap. The whole package smelled great before I even opened it. Lavender. One of my favorite scents. 

It wasn't time for a shower, but I did need to wash my face, so I sudsed up my bar, and set to cleaning. I was half way expecting this to have black suds, but they were white. Silky and great feeling, and washed off very easily. 

My skin felt very clean, and maybe just the slightest bit dry, but it is dry here in Phoenix at this time of year, so that is ok. I was pleased with the way it felt, and I did not experience any breakouts later which I sometimes get with certain products. 

The ingredients are 
Water, Glycerin, Sodium Stearate, Propylene Glycol, Sorbitol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Laurate, Sodium Olivate (Olive Oil), Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Stearic Acid, Lauric Acid, Pentasodium Pentetate, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Bamboo Vinegar, Bamboo Charcoal Powder, Lavender
That all sounds like pretty decent stuff to make into a soap. I suspect that vinegar and charcoal powder are the fabulous ingredients that make this soap work the way it does. Yum!

My bathroom still smells like lavender. I am pretty pleased with this product!

Next on the agenda- the stinky man shoes.

My man likes to wear his shoes one pair at a time.. so they can get to be a bit funky after 12 hours are work. Apparently he does take them off at his desk but.. ewwww.

So here are the inserts for the shoes. ( oops, the hockey package got in the pic- but they are the shoe inserts.)

Here are the inserts in the shoes.

I left them in the garage on a table, with the package, so he would know not to interrupt the experiment.

I wish the internet had stink o vision so you could experience the difference in before and after. Blech.

As for hockey gear, well, I will say that there is a definite improvement in the scent. 

The only bother is that the smelly man will re-scent the gear. lol. There isn't much to do to prevent that!
