The Musty Smell Challenge
A musty smell is one of the most challenging, unpleasant and stubborn odors to have in your home because it comes and goes until you solve the problem completely at the source. Generally speaking, dank musty smells are caused by mold and mildew that release foul gasses into the air. What causes mold and mildew? A combination of stagnant (non-circulating) air, darkness, and moisture create a perfect storm of musty odors. Basements are ideal breeding grounds for musty, moldy smells, but so are kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, storage closets and guest bedrooms. The pungent and sometimes stifling stench of mildew will only get stronger with time, and will come back with a vengeance each time you air out the room - until you put science to work with Smelleze® Reusable Musty Smell Deodorizer Pouches.
Musty Smells are Stubborn and Lingering
Did you know that musty smells trigger a "stay away" reflex in humans? It's because our survival instincts steer us away from moldy air spores and stale-smelling air that can impact our respiratory health. Some people are so sensitive to foul musty air that they will avoid visiting your home, without ever telling you the reason. Musty air originating from the basement can permeate the entire house, but there are many places where musty, moldy odors can get trapped in your home:
- Furniture, drapes and curtains
- Carpets and rugs
- Linen closets
- Attics and garages
- Unventilated rooms and storage areas
- Senior citizen quarters
- Home libraries and reading rooms
- Bathroom and kitchen cabinets
- Kitchen and garage refuse collection areas

Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
Does your product just eliminate odours? Is it also necessary to keep a dehumidifier running to eliminate moisture in a damp basement? Or is your product sufficient?
Our SMELLEZE Reusable Musty Odor Absorbent Pouches are designed to eliminate odors at the source. In addition, it will also remove excessive moisture at the same time so it is a dual odor and moisture eliminator. If you use at least 1 pouch/150 square feet, and rejuvenate regularly, you will not need a de-humidifier.
Thank you for responding to my last question. Before I order, I want to know if the pouches that I plan to put in my basement room have no smell of their own. I tried some horrible smelling liquid in a little bottle from the hardware store. I had to put a few drops of it in a glass container. The smell of the liquid was far worse than the smell of cedar that now fills the room. It is not a damp room. It's very dry, so mildew is not the issue...Thanks for your help!
Our Smelleze Musty Smell Eliminator Pouches are totally odor-free and fragrance-free so you will not have any smell issues. The product works by absorbing and eliminating odors without emitting any chemicals or scents
We have a partially finished attic space (plywood flooring has been put over the joists and insulation). There is a full stair case going up to the attic. The attic has a very strong musty (likely mildew) odor which seeps through the entire house if the door is left open at the bottom of the stairs. We have just purchased some Smelleze bags but I wanted to know how to eliminate the odor from occurring. The attic was well ventilated in the summer by vents on three sides of the attic. It is not insulated so it gets very hot/cold. I was thinking of finishing the space with insulation and drywall but there would not be any air circulation (we have radiator heat and no central air). Your suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.
Firstly, continue to use the Smelleze Musty Smell Eliminator Bags after the odor is eliminated in the attic to prevent it building up in the future. You can also use them in other parts of the home where the odor has permeated. Secondly, I would suggest placing MOISTURESORB Moisture Absorbent Pouches in the attic to absorb the excessive moisture to prevent dampness and musty odors.
how do get rid of musty odor from a window air conditioner that is in the wall
I would suggest hanging 1 or 2 Smelleze pouches where the air is blowing out to filter it and remove the bad odors. This simple solutions works really well.
