Now what a great idea for a long lasting scent. I'm going to definitely try that.

https://www.ultraodorsgone.com/home-uses. This is the best product I have ever used. It does not mask odors, it completely eliminates them.

Pet supply section

Go to the fish tank section, get a package of those pre filled filters with activated carbon.

  • If you are running the ac, slip one inside the duct.
  • If you are running the fart fan, slip one between the screen and blades
  • If you have a under microwave fan, slip one into section on top of the filter pad and fan
  • Small solid, no porous bowl secured with museum wax, eat and apple, put a thin slice in the bowl, eat an orange, put a thin slice in the bowl. If in front of a sunny window, put whole anise star herb in the bowl. Flip them every time you walk by so they dry evenly and don't mold. Toss out or place on a tree branch when it no longer smells and the wild birds will eat them.
All are non mechanical and cheap enough to toss at the end of each month. Don't purchase normal carbon, get the activated carbon. If you are crafty, you can bake the activated carbon to reactivate it, but that puts all the sour smells it gathered back into your coach while baking.

As Thom is allergic to smells and stuff we have to be very careful about strong things. That's including moving away from someone 2 aisles away in a store that has dumped perfume or cologne on themselves.
That being said the best thing we have found is to just find out what is making the smell and get rid of it and open the windows to let it air out. Tried Fabreeze, all of them, and they are all too strong even the ones with supposedly no smell. Forget Irish Spring, way too strong. Our laundry detergent is no perfume and no dyes. We smell the shampoo, soaps and shaving cream before we buy them cause too strong and they get given away.
We had to rehome the cat because of his allergies, and he loves cats, so we take care to make sure he does not have too many problems with allergies. Most of the time there are no problems but we make sure it stays that way. Funny thing is he is fine with grills, wood smoke and black powder ... go figure.

We use a model similar to this http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00BPA...pi=SL500_SY115

We only use the ion generator occasionally but leave the other features on. I am aware of the issues with negative ions so we use it only after cooking or after the coach had been in storage.

The filtration system works extremely well and does not add any fragrances or odors (except with ions on). We leave it in the bedroom and let it run 7x24.

Works for its, YMMV -Steve

The Sharp plasmacluster technology produces no ozone. It has really helped my allergies as well.
