The Japanese have long been utilising natural bamboo charcoal, also known as “takesumi” to purify and deodorise water and air. It is the most natural, effective and eco-friendly air freshener or water purifier you will ever come across.
The Chikuno Cube is an air freshener made from ultra fine powder of bamboo charcoal and clay minerals. Don’t underestimate its power by the small size; it is tremendously effective at absorbing odour in the fridge, closet, and purifying the air of any room or car in which it is placed.
So what makes the Chikuno Cube different from other takesumi? The specially designed honeycomb structure is its secret... filled with microscopic cavities, they can trap odour-causing chemicals from the air. Just one gram of charcoal amounts to nearly the same surface area of a tennis court!
This small cube is 100% natural, odourless, non-toxic, and can be "recharged" each month by leaving it in the sun for six hours. Reusable for up to a year.
