I've used Kamberra for years and it work great. I was never happy about the smell, but the stuff really works. An 8 ounce container lasts about 2 months and during that time I cannot detect any of the mold odors. However, I just found a new product that works even better and lasts longer and it cost less. I'm in love with the fragrance. It has a very mild and subtle citrus minty odor and removes all odors including dog and cat box. I found (deleted) on line and the price is less than Kanberra Gel.

After reading Minniwaskas writings about the Kanneberrra gell I decoided 2 months ago to give it a try and like him am somewhat of a beleiver that it seems to have had some positive effect. We have noticed a difference in our head as well as the whole boat when she is locked up for any period of time.

Sitting in the last two weeks of oppressive heat here on the Chesapeake was the ultimate test. There was no smell when I opened the boat. In addition none of the clothes I had left on the boat had a "boat" smell Like others I wished the faint scent was pleasent.

I found if on google, but the webpage is ******.com. This stuff is less expensive but smells great, like minty lemon citrus. We live and keep our Pearson in south FL where we have the damp Bahamas wind most of the season and rainy the rest of the time. I do have 1 of the solar vents. I must replace the rechargable c-cell battery every year. This combination works for us.

We've noticed the same. Of course, they never smell on the boat, but the moment they come out of the duffle at home, I always smelled the boat. Last time I brought clothes home, I was very surprised. No smell.

I have found that the gel works best when the space remains closed and air is well circulated. Air conditioning on is the best, the circulating dehumidifier works too. It is not as effective with all the hatches open when out at anchor.

I just put in an order for some. We'll see how it works.

I'm normally a very mild mannered and polite forum member, but I have to cry ********. After I happened to see a second post by SailaroundtheKeys plugging PUR-A-FY Air Gel, I got suspicious.

SailaroundtheKeys has made 5 posts on SailNet. In 4 of them he has plugged PUR-A-FY Air Gel. In his profile he lists his occupation as "Customer Relations". Any guesses for what company?

His profile lists http//www.purafyairgel.com/ as his homepage.

SailaroundtheKeys profile says he is located in South Florida. Nature's Innovative Solutions LLC, the makers of PUR-A-FY AIR GEL, is located in Fort Lauderdale Florida.

Idiot that I am, I thought that the post I quoted above was a genuine, and unbiased, user review. It appears it was nothing more than a marketing ploy on the part of SailaroundtheKeys. My guess is that SailaroundtheKeys is really Richard C. Belmont, Owner and Manager of Nature's Innovative Solutions LLC.

Maybe I was fooled because of what he wrote above "I found it on Google, but the webpage is purafyairgel.com". If that isn't an intentional attempt to mislead, I don't know what is.

What really ticks me off is that based on his bogus review, I ordered his product! Even if his product is as great as he claims (which based on his behavior in the forum I would question), I refuse to trade with anyone who conducts their business in an underhanded way.

Dhays. I did think I smelled a rat. I also saw the multiple plugs from a new poster, but thought the newbie might just have been contributing what they knew. Let's see if SailaroundtheKeys comes back to defend themselves.

I did look at the purafy website and it was hard identify what the stuff is. IIRC, you had to provide your contact info to get some evidence. Kanberra certainly seems to be more above board at this point.

Also, I ordered the Kanberra refills, which saved a ton. The downside with the refill is the bag it comes in seems like you must use it all at once. I suppose you could keep extra in a different airtight container.

I just happened to see another of his posts last night, which raised my suspicions. I first thought the same as you, that he might be just contributing about a product he likes a lot (I've promoted the use of dehumidifiers a bunch of times). However, as soon as I started to check things out, it became obvious.

I'd love to be wrong. Maybe SailaroundtheKeys can correct my miss-perceptions? Doubt it.
