When we go to trade shows, we find that people are very curious about the Moso Bag. They want to know what it is, how it works, how to use it and the list goes on. Here we’ve gathered the questions we are asked most often. If you have a question that’s not addressed, please send it our mailbox.
What is the Moso Bag? The Moso Bag is a natural, extremely effective air purifier that absorbs odors, bacteria, harmful pollutants and allergens. The Moso Bag also dehumidifies, which helps prevent excess moisture, mold and mildew.
What’s in the bag? There is just one ingredient inside the Moso Bag – 100% Moso bamboo charcoal. This incredible natural product is made from Moso bamboo, a species of giant timber bamboo.
How is Moso bamboo charcoal made? Converting Moso bamboo into bamboo charcoal takes several weeks during which the bamboo is dried and then treated at high temperatures in a kiln. The resulting bamboo charcoal has millions of tiny, porous holes through which it absorbs impurities and excess moisture.
What types of odors and pollutants does the Moso Bag absorb? The Moso Bag absorbs unpleasant odors such as smoke, pet smells, paint and mustiness. It also absorbs pollutants. Bamboo charcoal has been scientifically proven to reduce harmful chemicals including formaldehyde, ammonia, benzene and chloroform gases emitted from such items as paint, carpeting, furniture, air fresheners, chemical cleaners, rubber and plastic.
Why use the Moso Bag? Many conventional air fresheners contain dangerous chemicals such as formaldehyde, petrochemicals, p-dichlorobenzene and aerosol pollutants. We created the Moso Bag as a safe and natural alternative.
How long does it take for the bag to work? It begins working immediately after you open the bag. However, because it doesn’t give off a scent like an air freshener, it can be difficult to know if it’s working right away. But you’ll know soon. In just a few days, you will notice major improvements. Within a week, odors will be completely neutralized.
What is the best size Moso Bag for my space? The Moso Bag is available in three sizes, to best fit your needs. For optimal results, position the Moso Bag in an open area; it is safe to place on any surface.
50g Mini Moso Bag (package of two): Covers 10 square feet, which is great for small contained areas like shoes and boots, gym bags, lockers, laundry bags, trash bins and luggage.
200g Moso Bag: Covers 90 square feet and is excellent for small spaces including cars, boats, closets, bathrooms, pet areas and laundry rooms.
500g Moso Bag: Covers 250 square feet, making it perfect for larger areas such as kitchens, living areas, bedrooms and offices. Tip: Place in newly remodeled rooms to reduce unpleasant odors and toxins!
Where is the best placement for the Moso Bag? It’s best to put the bag in fairly open areas where air can pass through – it’s not good to tuck it away or place it underneath things (unless, of course, you’re using it for a gym bag or hamper – but when you’re placing it in a room or a car, you want to have air circulation around the bag).
How long will the bag last? The Moso Bag will last up to two years.
Is the Moso Bag safe around pets? Yes! The Moso Bag contains one ingredient only – bamboo charcoal – which has no chemicals or toxins, making it safe to use around pets and children.
How do I rejuvenate the bag? To rejuvenate, we recommend placing your bag in the sun once a month for at least one hour. We recommend flipping over the Moso Bag occasionally while it is in the sun so all of the bamboo charcoal can rejuvenate. If you live somewhere that doesn’t have much sun, know that the Moso Bag will last for more than 30 days without sun, and in some cases as long as 90 days. However, you’ll get the best performance when you put it in the sun every 30 days.
Will the Moso Bag still rejuvenate in winter? Yes, simply place your Moso Bag outside in direct sunlight.
What happens if I accidentally get the bag wet? It is not permanently damaged. Simply place the bag in the sun to let it dry out. Once it’s dry, the charcoal will begin to work again.
Can the bamboo charcoal be recycled? Absolutely! Bamboo charcoal is an amazing product. After two years as an air purifier, the bamboo charcoal makes a wonderful addition to your garden, where it promotes plant growth and completes its lifecycle as a product that comes from the earth and ultimately gives back to the earth.
What is the outside of the Moso Bag made of? The exterior bag is made of linen, a fabric derived from the flax plant.
What is the difference between the different colors of the Moso Bags? No functional difference, the color choices are simply for aesthetics.
