Wonderful Uses of Charcoal. Sounds Too Good To Be True


Its uses domestically are numerous but majorly for cooking.
Charcoal is one of the most disregarded products at home. We only see the need for it when it is time to set fire for Banku.
However, if you really need first aid, charcoal is something you need to have on you all the time, you might not know this but it is one of the most medicinal products you can have at home due to its poison extraction ability.
In case you never gave it much attention, this is the time to do so. Here are 13 benefits of charcoal you never thought about.

1. Preventing Odour.
Does your shoe smell bad? just get some charcoal and put it in them. Do you have any bad smell in your room? Drop some charcoal where you suspect the smell could be coming from. Does your fridge or freezer smell? Put a piece of charcoal in it. Do you have strong body odour? Just make a powder out of charcoal and use, thank us later.
Charcoal is very good at getting rid of bad smell. Ever wondered why your parents always scooped out the ash from the coal pot to pour in the hen coop or toilet before sweeping? That was to get rid of the odour.

2. Keeping Food Fresh.
If you want your vegetables to be fresh all the time, just make a solution out of charcoal and leave your vegetables in them. Thank us later.

3. Removing Toxins From Food.
These days, people complain about the use of fertilizers on plants and vegetables, making them unwholesome and poisonous. If you have charcoal, you don't need to worry about this, all you need to do is leave the vegetables in a charcoal solution overnight and it'll take care of the toxins. If you suspect any food contains too many chemicals, just drop them in a charcoal solution for some hours and you're good to go.

4. For Teeth Whitening.
If you want to whiten your teeth, pay no attention to all these adverts on whitening chemicals and technology, just get yourself some charcoal and grab hold of a plantain stalk, make a powder out of the charcoal, mash the tip of the plantain stalk, dip it into the charcoal powder and brush your teeth with it for a week, thank us later.

5. Restoring Soup That Went Bad.
Did your groundnut soup or palm nut soup go bad? No need to worry about pouring it all away. Just put it back on fire and drop a piece of charcoal in it. This will extract all the bad taste and smell and restore the soup to its fresh state.

PRODUCTION:... We produce quality charcoal from hardwoods, like thick, Orin dudu, apepe, dongo yaro and the like, sorry I could not get English name for those one.
Mature trees can only be found in thick bush and are fell down with saw machine.
They will be cut into sizes which people could carry. Next is blanching I.e cutting the leaves after about a week of cutting. After is the loading or arranging the branched trees together. The next step is covering with leaves and sand for it must burn without air else it will turn to ashes
After about two weeks it will finish burning and will be ready for removal. When removed, you will put inside sacks and ready for sale.

You must take government license called permit before cutting the trees.
You must also belong to produce and sell before you will be allowed to cut.

Once the charcoal is bagged, you can either sell at the farm to marketers or sell your self to end user,
If you are selling at the you collect your money right on the spot, and presently it is sold between #1,000 and #1,200 multiply that by 100 bags
If you want to sell to the end user, transportion is a major challenge from farm to final destination, because of its nature, cabstar, containner or pick up car maybe appropriate the least you will pay per bag is 300 depending on the distance.
Also there are external factor such, police, Forrester on the road
The least price which you will sell is 1,600 depending on the area also multiply that by 100
Finally, if you don't belong to the marketer group you can't sell. There are places where they produce charcoal, Igbo ora, Alabata etc.
