So husband and I moved into a different apartment. It's old and the person who used to live here, seemed to be smoking non-stop. I can smell the cigarettes all over inside the apartment. Sometimes it's even such a strong smell that comes out of no where suddenly. So my husband bought this. Actually he has a good sense of smell so he can smell it more than I can. Anyhow, we put this Hawaiian Shore Odor Neutralizing Gel Beads, 12 oz on a cabinet. Thankfully it doesn't smell as bad now. It is very effective. We even tried to open the windows and leave the doors open for a while but that didn't help. These beads do definitely work. I don't quite remember what he said about the price, but he said that he bought it quite cheap. Plus it continues to work for 60-90 days. I think it's great and I just love the look of those beads too. It smells very strong when you hold it. But otherwise it just normalizes the smell in the living room. The best part is that you don't need to do anything with it, just let it sit and it'll do its work. I would highly recommend it to everyone. It's definitely worthy because (I just looked), it's only about $4 at Walmart and lasts for almost 3 months.
