First of all, I am super excited to announce that I am doing my first giveaway! One lucky winner will win a set of SmellWell packets. Hosting a giveaway was one of my goals for my blog this year.

But first, here’s my review of SmellWell!

If you have been reading my blog, you may have seen that I reviewed SmellWell earlier this year. But upon getting to test SmellWell for a second time, I’ve gotten more creative with places to put them.

SmellWell, a non-toxic product, come in sets of two, and in different fun patterns — last time I chose Pink Zebra and this time I chose Blue Leopard. There’s also a plain black color.

I used SmellWell on the driver’s seat of my car. I’ll be doing this again! (Vanessa Junkin photo)

The product basically does what the name says — on the box, it says “makes your stuff SmellWell!” Use the product overnight rather than expecting it to work immediately.

There’s plenty to read about the product on Amazon. Here’s a sentence from the Amazon listing: “SmellWell removes the moisture right where bacteria and fungi thrive to eliminate the problem before it occurs.”

You can purchase SmellWell on Amazon. SmellWell retails for $9.95 for a set of two, and you can get three sets for the price of two sets by using the code “BIBPRO10.” Put all three in your Amazon cart and then enter the code to see the discount!

When I tested SmellWell last time, I pretty much stuck to using them in shoes and with running clothes as I traveled. While those are still good ways to use SmellWell, I’ve gotten some additional ideas since then.

I saw a post from Mai, another BibRave Pro, about using them in flats. I have done that since then, and flats are a perfect place to use them since they can definitely get stinky.

During the SmellWell #BibChat earlier this month, the idea arose to use them in my car. All the time, I get into the driver’s seat of my car with sweaty clothes on, and unfortunately, I leave the wetness of the sweat and a stink behind. Although it does dry up, I figured it would be a good idea to let SmellWell take in some of that moisture/smell.

After emptying a laundry bag of sweaty running clothes, I also put SmellWell in the bag to help with freshening that (just don’t wash the SmellWell).

I also used them in my softball glove at the end of the rec softball season.

I have had my first set of SmellWell for about four months — I got them at the end of February. SmellWell are meant to last about 3-4 months, and just today when I was smelling my first set, I realized that the scent has subsided. (However, I wouldn’t be surprised if they still helped freshen up items, even if not to the same extent.)

This is what you will win if you win my giveaway — one set of SmellWell packets in the Blue Leopard pattern. (Vanessa Junkin photo)

I received my latest set of SmellWell packets earlier this month and they seem to be working as well as when I got them. The scent is strong and can be noticeable from a distance, but they certainly seem to do their job.

So, do you want some SmellWell of your own?

Here’s where you can head to Amazon — don’t forget the code “BIBPRO10.”
