Barking Wednesday - Purggo is coming!

Hi….I wanted to make sure to tell you upfront that the products mentioned in this post have been received for free for evaluation purposes.  With that being said rest assure that I only give honest opinions. The opinions are my own and always will be.  Thanks for visiting.
 
Welcome to Barking Wednesday - each Wednesday I discuss a topic related to my bestest friend King my Black Lab. This week I want to share a new product I was asked to test.

Two weekends ago I was traveling with Kingers in the Jeep. He had gotten wet and he stayed in the back seat of my Jeep. The next Tuesday Dawn used my Jeep to take the kids to SIx Flags Great America.  When Caleb - my 13 year old grandson sat in the Jeep the first thing out of his mouth was  "It smells like dog in here."  Dawn rolled her eyes and keep going down the road. Right away when she told me I said "Of course it does - King is always riding in the Jeep".  

On Wednesday a package arrived and to my amazement it was items  from a company named Purggo. Purggo is the marker of car freshners that are 100% bamboo charcoal. Perfect Timing for a review!

When I opened the box I was taken back my the concept of the air freshener. I immediately read the instructions to find out what I needed to so I could get the freshener in my dog smelling Jeep.

They recommend that you let the Purggo sit in the sunlight for about one hour. This allows any moisture that got into the Purggo during shipping to be removed. Removing the moisture restores the odor absorbing capabilities of the Purggo.

The instructions state that you tie the Purggo to the seat
headrest.  Check out how I attached the Purggo to the Jeep headrest.

The info states that the Purrago will last 365+ days. All I need to do is put the Purggo in sunlight for about one hour a month. That is it! No replacement needed for over 1 year! Nothing to buy or add to the Purggo. Since sunlight is FREE this is GREAT.

Thursday  - the Purggo had been in my Jeep for one day. When I sat inside...I was amazed at how nice it smelled.  I would describe it as a FRESH smell.  NO dog odor and no chemical smell. 


I knew the test will be Caleb - Friday morning when I pick him up. Caleb has a nose like a hound dog!  LOL  I wonder if he will notice the difference and if so will he say anything. Caleb is 13 and very opinionated.  

I picked up Caleb...no word about the Jeep. I was beginning to think that the Jeep still smelled like dog to him.  Then when I went to drop him off  at home he said.."Thanks Nana for cleaning out the Jeep - it is nice not to smell dog"  I said "You're Welcome"  As I drove down the road I thought "YES" "The Purggo works - because the only thing I did was install the Purggo!


Purggo is Eco Firendly

100% Natural!!! No harsh chemicals which can trigger asthma and allergies.

NO masking odors - Purggo absorbs odors!

Last 365+ Days - the only thing you need to do is place the Purggo in sunlight for one hour a month

Eco-friendly - made of bamboo one of the fastest growing  crops... bamboo can grow up to 40 feet in one month.

When your Purggo is no longer working after a year...discard the ingredients into your garden or flower beds...it is 100% natural fertilizer.

The funny was when Kingers got into the Jeep.  Right away he noticed the Purggo hanging from the headrest. He sniffed the Purggo and then laid down.  Nice to know that I am keeping the Jeep smelling good with no risk of harm to Kingers or anyone that is riding in my Jeep.

Purggo's mission is helping people breathe healthy and live happy.  Please join them in helping spread the word about this great product.  Purggo will be launching a Kickstarter campaign soon. The Purggo is in the early stages - they are redesigning the Purggo to be more attractive. Here is a pic of the newest design!  Very stylish!

I am very pleased to say that I placed the Purggo in my Jeep  over a week ago. Since then I have taken a road trip with three grandkids and one 100 pound black lab. I have had Kinggers in the Jeep numerous days.
NO DOG SMELL!!!
The Jeep smells so fresh!

  3. Huh. I would love to try this too. I'd need three though- we have 3 vehicles!! All of ours are older it's not so much dog smell as older cars that have been around the block, you know?

  4. I love that idea. Little kids and snacks, muddy feet and shoes can get stinky, too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. never heard of it, but i would give it a try... when it rains my dog smells so bad.. its hard to get her clean.. i would put this near her bed

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  31. I will have to try this out! Between 2 dogs and 3 kids, my van could use it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My daughter needs this for her car. It always smells like her dogs and mildew. I'm not sure how she stands it!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think we need one or two of these products for every room in my whole house! LOL
    Sure is nice to hear that there is something that works naturally to freshen a space :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I definitely need one of these for my car! My dog is a stink dog and smells up my car, too, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have friends who take their dogs everywhere. I'm definitely going to pass this information along. (I'm also going to tell my mom about it, though her dog only rarely rides along in the car.)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow, that is impressive. I have two dogs and I don't take them in my car too often so I don't have that issue. However, I wouldn't mind one for my house.

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is a great product for people with pets. I love that it is eco-friendly!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I could use this in my boys room or bathroom. Good gosh what is it going to smell like when they are teenagers.

    ReplyDelete
  41. As my dog gets into her senior years, she starts to smell more and more. I bet this would help.

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is fantastic! Dog smell can linger, so this is a great problem solver

    ReplyDelete
  43. This sounds like a must have even if you do not have pets but kids!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That was the perfect way to test it out and see if it worked. Wet dog isn't a nice smell, so if this removes it, I'm all for it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. No matter how much we love them, dogs do have their own unique smell. That's pretty impressive that your grandson noticed right away and that you only have to put it in the sun once a month. We might have to look into this.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow, I could definitely have used this when we had dogs. I could never get that smell out of my old station wagon!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Man- this would be good for people without dogs too! I am sure that any soccer mom would appreciate a Purggo!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I wonder if it works with cats and their things mine sorta peed inside my hubby's truck and after 6 months it still smells like it

    ReplyDelete
  49. That is awesome I really need one off these. I hate when the car smells like wet dog. It seems to take a long time to go away.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have two dogs so this is kind of a must have! Thanks for sharing this review.

    ReplyDelete
  51. This is such an interesting product. I have a dog so naturally I would love to try this.

    ReplyDelete
  52. This is such a neat idea. Never seen one of these before.

    ReplyDelete
  53. My car doesn't smell like a wet dog but I swear it smells like the kids have old food or sweaty socks in there. I have febreze car clips but this may actually be better.

    ReplyDelete
  54. That is such an awesome concept. I wonder if they could make one of these for the house after our dog goes outside in the summer.

    ReplyDelete
  55. that is so cool. I need one for Big Bertha aka my GMC Yukon. Thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  56. that sounds like a great product! when I get a car I will have to try it out!
