    Slice up some oranges or lemons, leave the slices out of plates for a day or so, should soak up the smells, after a day or so repeat with some fresh slices.

    Yes, she is the best for things thru your mouth.

    But when it comes to what to shove up your lower orifices, Gwyneth just can't be beat!
    Whether its eggs or steam or other objects to be inserted, she knows best!

    Activated charcoal by itself isn't going to help too much with that. Large air circulation fans + exhaust fans out the windows will work best.

    After most of the heavy smells are aired out, then look at getting some cheap air filters. The xiaomi air filter is <1000, provides a lot of air flow at the highest setting and now has a filter with an activated charcoal core. Using the air filter upfront isn't a good use of money unless you're already living in it.

    It's a bit hard to find serious information out there, but from what I've managed to gather, a big load of activated carbon can be quite effective. The other ingredient used is potassium permanganate, but this is probably not easy to acquire locally.

    I've yet to come across any purifier that is usable on a max airflow setting (well, maybe the BlueAirs as that's what they are designed for). It's also worth taking the charcoal filter and out of any filter and looking at it, the Xiaomi, like most on the market, is laughably token. I quite like that purifier for other reasons, but completely disregard the charcoal filter part.

    Thanks for the advice but I started this thread 3 years ago and I'm all sorted now

    Yeah, this thread only kicked off again because someone decided to promote charcoal tablets (which sounds like a terrible idea on the face of it), but it I guess we decided to run with it anyway.

    How much does it cost to get team GOOP to say your product is great?
