We initially passed on testing the Mayunuo 5 Pack Nature Fresh Bamboo Charcoal Air Purifier because we assumed that its five bags of charcoal were essentially the same as the three–bag version, at nearly double the cost.
However, after our testing, we discovered that these are actually superior to the three–bag version. So, if you don’t mind paying a little extra for more bags, we recommend shelling out for this 5–bag option.
The Mayunuo is one of the more effective air purifiers we tested. Its odor–eliminating properties were so strong that a bag placed in our kitchen trash can completely neutralized the smell of two pounds of raw chicken wings in our refrigerator.
However, we did find one major flaw: It’s impossible to tell which end is up! We found it impossible to tell which end was up. This can make it difficult to store or pack away, since you might not get them rolled up tightly enough.
(We tried rolling them into a ball and couldn’t get it to stay.) While we didn’t test any purifiers that were specifically made for cars, we think these packs would be a good choice for anyone looking to rid their car of stale smoke or body odor.
