Finding a natural odor eliminator that is toxic free, scent free and natural is typically a major effort. Most products that are touted to eliminate or absorb odors really just cover-up problem areas with additional fragrances.
Plus, sometimes it’s impossible to actually remove odors completely because of the cause…such as moldy materials that will just have to be replaced in order to get rid of the problem. However, there are many situations where a natural odor eliminator will work effectively.
One of the best natural odor eliminators is zeolite. Zeolite is a volcanic mineral that naturally absorbs both odors and moisture from polluted air. It’s also reusable, because the mineral is negatively charged and can be recharged simply by exposure to the sun.

Here’s an excerpt from that article about some of our personal experiences with zeolite that may interest.
Zeolite Really Works as a Natural Odor Eliminator in Tough Situations
In fact, on a personal note, my husband and I have had two major occasions to enjoy the super duper power of zeolite to remedy stubborn, odor-obnoxious situations.
1. The Impossibly Smelly Car Interior
The first was when we bought a used Jeep that had unfortunately been “cleaned” and detailed with some sort of awful smelling product that pretty much made it impossible for me to ride in. The odor became apparent especially when the sun warmed the leather interior.
A leather shop owner told my husband that probably someone had slathered a silicone based conditioner everywhere in the car and that it was very difficult to remove. It even made the leather tacky feeling.
I really couldn’t ride in it because of headaches, feelings of nausea and respiratory problems. After experimenting with ways to remove the stuff, I hit on using a tablespoon of trisodium phosphate in 1/2 gallon of warm water to wash down the interior. (No, it didn’t hurt the leather at all.)
Geared up with face mask and gloves, I washed it down several times. It was amazing at how much better the interior smelled. The tackiness was also gone. But, a slight smell kept creeping back whenever it was warm.
I happened to remember a few small zeolite bags I had in the house and tossed them in the car, two on the dash and one beside each of the front seats. Amazingly, it wasn’t long before I could safely ride in the Jeep. We keep the zeolite bags where they are for continued odor control. They work great.
2. Replaced Awful Air Fresheners at Fitness Gym
The next incident came when the large gym where my husband works out, decided to install automatic air fresheners that intermittently squirted out synthetic fragrance throughout the entire place.
So, no more gym for me.
After a few months, one day the owners were having a casual conversation with my husband about how much the commercial air fresheners were costing them. They were also wondering about a more natural alternative.
That was an open door. My husband immediately told them about zeolite for natural odor elimination. They did a little research and then, bought large buckets of it to place around strategic areas of the gym: work out areas, locker rooms and sauna. They are very pleased with the results.
Me, too. Now, no more chemical fragrances.
I’ve actually joined the gym again.
You can pick up natural zeolite for an odor eliminator in several different product forms such as buckets, small bags and more. The fact that it’s rechargeable, makes it especially useful and inexpensive. See More Zeolite Odor Eliminators here.
