While we weren’t blown away by any of the air purifiers we tested, we were impressed with this Vitscan set.

First off, it’s all about the charcoal. Unlike most air purifiers, which use carbon to eliminate odors and trap particles, this set uses activated charcoal. It is, essentially, charcoal that has been treated to make it more porous, allowing it to trap more things.

That’s why these are so good at eliminating odors—they’re like little odor traps. They also have a high surface area and have been treated with an odor-eliminating solution during production. We put several of these bags in our gym bag and our test lab was free of shoe stink after just a few hours.

This set comes with a variety of bags for a variety of uses: shoe odor eliminators, car air purifiers, and a couple of large ones for larger spaces like closets or bathrooms. If you want to get your hands on some super-purifying charcoal bags at an affordable price, this is a great option.

Vitscan 12 Pack Bamboo Charcoal Air Purifying Bag FAQs

They have storage facilities in China so sure the majority of all these products come from China.
It is UV rays that recharge it, so it doesn’t need to be warm. It just needs to see the sun. Even if there is snow on the ground, as long as the sun is out it should work.
The bag states 100 percent bamboo charcoal, I guess that’s carbon free
Since mold is a fungus and these charcoal bags are designed to help reduce or eliminate odor by adsorption I rather doubt that they will have any effect on mold. Mold is something that you would have to use a specific type of product, such as a mold-specific disinfectant. However I would recommend that you contact the manufacturer to make sure.
