  1. Just got my bucket of odorzout today. One question though, can I mix granules with water or another liquid to make a solution? I’m getting ready to paint several rooms in my house & I want to get rid of smell of cigarette smoke. Making a solution to spray on walls would be ideal. Is it possible?
