Default Ozone Generator Question.

Has any one used this, or something like it?
And does it work?
Thank You

My opinion of those and the skeeter devices are they are worthless. If it is the least bit windy out, anything those devices put out will be long gone and not hang around your area to do its job.

I have one - it works well , but the effects are short lived in my opinion. After a couple days things seem to revert to their original smell. I OzG my truck every once in a while, but after a while it always smells like an old truck again.

Default Depends on how much money you want to spend

I had a job of cleaning up a smoky smell in a vehicle and almost used an ozone machine from a tool rental store. I heard that they use them for hotels/motels to get smoke and other smells out of a room.

Being cheap, of course, I wash hunting clothes with baking soda and borax which is scent free and lacks any brighteners/UV cleaners.

Everyone can do their own thing. But I saved a $1500 bill for cleaning up a vehicle smoky job with home made scent killer, so I'm sold for life.

They do work well.
You do have to use it often to get the max benefit.
Small price to pay to keep scent free.

I spent several decades in the dry cleaning business. An Ozone machine works just fine in an enclosed place where it can filter the air. These gadgets they're trying to push for hunting are pure snake oil. They CAN NOT and WILL NOT cover your scent. DO NOT waist your money. There is no way in hell this toy can do what they claim. IF you were in a big plastic bag and this thing was attached to the only opening perhaps some relieve. Of course you suffocate before you got to the tree. LOL
