Freshwave Odor Eliminating Chrystals Informative - Freshwave Crystals, Not Worth It.

Review by jktshff1 on 2011-01-17
RISING SUN, INDIANA -- Long story short, had a critter die in the walls or under the house (most likely a mouse). Hot/cold weather stink was rough. Purchased this expensive ($14.99 for 16 oz) product at Bed Bath and Beyond on the clerks recommendation that it would take care of the problem. Reading the label helped me think that it would help. None whatsoever, cheap scented candles helped more. Heck ejacks gas would have done better. I would not recommend the product.

Taking your word for it.

Wow, jkt, that was expensive! I try only to use natural products. One I use is at Trader Joes and is orange scented. It works well for most odors. Unfortunately I don't know the exact name of it, but it's in a slender blue bottle with an orange on it (non aerosol). It's $4.99, but lasts quite some time. I'm sure others must carry it too. Thanks for warning people about this sham product.

Good info, jkt...I wonder if Lowes, HD, or your local hardware/garden place might have some suggestions (enviro friendly).

Wow jkt this I'm going to have to disagree with you here. Used this product after flood damage in our home's basement and it was a miracle. The price was a little concerning at first but IMHO it was worth it for an effective all-natural product. just my 3 cents.

Terry, might work on wet and mold, but it won't help a dead animal in the walls

I don't think so because I have had that damp mold and to be honest there is no a lot that works in the long run... A dehumidifier and the large tubs of damp rid work for mold and mildew..

Dead animals I don't know what would work..

I think that in general, if you are trying to get rid of an unpleasant odor, it's much better to but cheap scented candles. The expensive name brand ones are designed to give off a pleasant but subtle scent, not to overpower any other odors in the room.
