Let's clear the air

Let's clear the air

OK, I am not a student (actually, I came upon a device that would potentially help my grandson -12 yrs).

The other day I came upon a "gizmo" that demonstrates how smoke can be "cleared" from an area at a garage sale. I asked the person who had it & she said they used to be in the air purification business but no more. This demo device shows how smoke is dissipated by several methods using "liquid smoke" in an acrylic box. Made by "Alpine Industries, Blaine, MN. I bought the "gizmo" for $5. Thinking that my grandson could use it I bought it. Now I need some more info on the gizmo, so is anyone able to help me out? I would appreciate it very much.
I can send a photo of this gizmo, let me know.

Barry's Response - Apparently, this device uses ozone to clear other contaminants from the air. The problem is it needs to introduce a dangerous level of O3 to the air in order to be effective.

If you Google the manufacturer's name, as I did, you find several articles indicating that the company has been court-ordered to stop making claims about the product, probably because of this drawback.

Ah yes:

If it sounds to good to be true, most of the time it is. If you're talking about toxic cigarette smoke, the only thing that will help this 12-year old is for the smoker to quit. Don't smoke in the home, garage or in his face.

To kill oneself is up to one; to kill another is not. Second hand smoke kills and the butts take up to 12 years to decompose, leaving dangers for children and wildlife. They also affect our natural water.

If you're a smoker, please don't leave this poison behind. I'm sure you were not looking for this kind of response...

Health and Happiness to you and yours.
