What is charcoal, how is it beneficial

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.

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

why your parents always scooped out the ash from the coal pot to
