Block Out Odors

Uncommon Knowledge: One gram of charcoal has nearly the surface area of a tennis court!

That's because charcoal is filled with microscopic cavities - so many, in fact, that they can trap odor-causing chemicals from the air. This specially designed Chikuno Cube uses a honey-comb structure to maximize this power - creating a surprisingly effective air freshener for your refrigerator, closet or other enclosed space.

Can be "recharged" each month by leaving it in the sun for six hours. Reusable for up to a year. Do not use where Chikuno Cube could get wet (i.e. the shower). Made in Kyoto, Japan.

Winner of the 2008 Japanese Good Design Award.

    Comments about CHIKUNO CUBE:

    We've been having problems with our fridge being smelly the past few months and I finally found this product. It's really great! Now there's no smell at all! It's small, elegant design, and very effective.

      Not noticeable when in clear view
      One of those great simple green inventions
      Read the fine print on the number of cubes needed for the space-- it takes quite a few for a small room like a bathroom or kitchenette.

        Not really worth it, unique but not as effective as would like for the return on investment. But liked everything else I have bought so far.

          I cook often and have leftovers. Even though I cover everything, my fridge can get smelly. I put this in my fridge and no longer need messy baking soda for odor control.

          Comments about CHIKUNO CUBE:

          This was a great gift for my sister who lives in a small NYC apartment. She's going to get more for different rooms. It's small, which is good if you want something that isn't obvious, but I think the design looks great so I wish it was a little bigger. Actual size is about 1.75" cube.

              I have replaced the baking soda in the fridge with one of these. it works better, looks better and is reusable. I am planning to buy a couple more to put in our garbage room and bathroom.
