Uncle Tam’s

Coffee & Charcoal

Uncle Tam’s Maker Steve Simmons first made the coffee and charcoal odor absorber to deal with some unpleasant cat odors at home. A barista at the local coffee shop mentioned how susceptible coffee beans are to absorbing other odors. Steve had his "aha" moment and soon got to work. He channeled the spirit of his great great uncle, Tam, a true do-it-yourselfer who was as self-sustaining as possible, when creating his simple but effective deodorizer bags. Coffee and charcoal (along with other natural ingredients) are packed into the handcrafted cotton bags which absorb and neutralize unwanted odors. There are no chemicals or fragrance added. It’s compact and discreet, and works best in small areas. And because Steve made the bag with pets in mind, he added bitter apple to keep animals from chewing on it. Hang one inside a closet, slide it behind the trash can, stash it in the car, or place it in any spot where things might smell not so fresh. A bag should last around three months, and you can shake and roll it to reactivate its natural funk-fighting power.

Quick Questions

How long do Uncle Tam’s bags last?

The bags are effective for three months or so when kept clean and dry. If your bags need a boost, you can roll them between your palms vigorously to shake up the contents, or warm them in the sun to reactivate.

What do the bags smell like?

For the most part, Uncle Tam’s bags have a neutral, unnoticeable aroma. You can smell the fresh ingredients for a short time when the bags are new, or when the bag is right under your nose. The scent is natural and considered pleasant by most people. Uncle Tam’s does not rely on fragrances, chemicals, or perfumes to mask odor.

Are the bags appropriate for smaller pets like rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, or birds?

Due to their natural chewing tendencies, this product should be kept away from birds and rodents. Uncle Tam’s should never be used inside small pet enclosures. If you have a particularly smelly cage, it’s okay to place the bags alongside or nearby out of reach from your pet.

Can I clean or launder the bags?
