    What was the name of that oder removing candle

    At one time someone posted about an oder removing candle. I followed the link saved it to my favorites. I did not have a need to buy them just then. Well my computer crashed and I can not find the post.

    I remember the posting said it could be used in the house and also in the car. Best candle ever.
    I think it said that if you put it in a car all the old smoke smell disappeared. I think it also said that you could use it for pet oders.

    I'm looking at removing PET ODERS!
    I do not remember anymore of the post.
    Can someone help me locate it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but here is a link to a past thread that includes candles for odors:

    Prism99 thanks for the link- nope that is not the one. I do remember having to order the candles.

    The poster said that their daughter put one in a vehicle in the smell disappeared in a short amount of time.

    I'm hoping this person will read my post.

    Not convinced these sort of things work - yes they might freshen up the air but odours are in the very fabric of the house, ie carpets, sofas, curtains and only cleaning will remove them

    I'm not sure of the name of the candle that my daughter bought at her store, she's a pet groomer. It does work, it has a nice smell but even if it isn't lit you can smell the candle, it last a long time too. Good luck finding it. You might try putting baking soda in your carpet and then vacuming it up.

    I was told that pure beeswax candles clear the air.

    The odors are in your carpet, wooden flooring, window hangings, furniture, etc. A candle will only mask the odor not get rid of it. If your house is closed up for a long time the odor will get worse. We had an odor, I had the carpets, wood flooring and furniture steam cleaned. Still an odor, cleaned the blinds and other window coverings, washed all quilts on beds and couch, got rid of throw pillows. Still an odor, got new bathroom rugs, tada, no more odor, it was the rubber backing on the rugs. At least my house is really clean and smells good. A friend had the same problem, she has an older home, turned out the wood in her kitchen cabinets were rotting due to years of moisture from steam, grease and dishwasher. Expensive fix! The cabinet maker advised her to try sanding them and apply varnish, she opted for a kitchen remodel.
