Disappointing: Sagano Review

Be honest... Do you have stinky shoes? Well, I will confess that one of my favorite pairs of wedges can benefit from a fresh powdering of Johnson's Baby Powder after a day on my feet (without nylons). A freshening never hurt anyone, right? So when I heard about Sagano's "Activated Charcoal Shoe Odor Eliminator" I figured it would be worth a try. The reviews on Amazon were positive with an average of 5 stars. Sadly, I was disappointed with my own results and will be sticking with Johnson's Baby Powder.

The package comes with two charcoal packs for $8.95 on Amazon. According to the company's advertisement:

- Activated charcoal is a highly porous deodorizing material that has a powerful ability to attract, adsorb, and remove not only unpleasant smells but also other impurities in the air. So you will not only get rid of stink, you'll also improve air quality. 
- This Activated Charcoal shoe odor remover works on preventing and eliminating the main cause of bad odor - moisture... Therefore your shoes will stay clean and fresh all the time.
- By inserting one of these Activated Carbon deodorizer bags in your shoes, you can keep your old or new shoes dry and free from feet smell.

All those sound amazing. And the process couldn't be easier. Open the package and insert one pack into each shoe. I left them in overnight and the next afternoon was excited and hopeful to smell a fresh change. Alas. Nothing. With Johnson's Baby Powder I can smell a difference in minutes and yet even after an entire 24 hours, I see no change (for the good) using Sagano's "Activated Charcoal Shoe Odor Eliminator".

Some people claim to have good results so if you are interested, you can rest assured that Sagano promises:
100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE: If you're not fully satisfied with the results of this product, you may return your item and we'll give you a refund with no questions asked! So click on the "Add to Cart" button now and start wearing cleaner, fresher shoes every time!

As for me though, I will stick with Johnson's. I hope this review has been helpful for you in choosing your best options!
