Odor absorbers & air fresheners


Kitchen Odors need a targeted approach for elimination.

There is plenty of good, and not so good, advise about eliminating kitchen and household odors and in particular, getting rid of the odors and smells that come from the kitchen.   Other than the noticeable odors that are from the bathrooms, or perhaps the room with the 3 cats and their litter boxes in the house, the kitchen usually in the culprit for the majority of the odor or “house smell” that is noticed almost immediately when entering a home or apartment.  The reason is that there are more sources of odor from that one room – the kitchen, than all other combined areas of the home.   As you walk into your home, likely first impression will come from the nose if it’s bad.  Instead, if the smell is clean and fresh, then you’re more likely to impress visitors with a pleasant welcome that says that you care.

 To effectively combat against kitchen odors, you need to take a targeted approach to each of the problems or sources of odor and not try to eliminate the odors by simply spraying some “odor eliminator” into the air.   These do very little to eliminate the odor for good.  What you need is to be armed with effective and specific solutions.

 There are plenty of products that are available to clean surfaces and counter-tops and for the most part they are all good.   Thankfully now, many “natural” products are available that are as good as or better than some leading brands.   Keeping surfaces clean regularly and also immediately after use is always an important and easy way to reduce odor build-up in the first place.   But, no matter how diligent you are, there are specific problem areas that you need to address.

Refrigerator- You would be surprised to learn how much a smelly refrigerator can lead to a smelly kitchen, not to mention having your strawberries taste like onions and your ham like fish.   It’s of course important to keep your refrigerator clean from spills but to actually eliminate lingering odors, go for the power of activated carbon in a product like Fridge It activated carbon odor absorbers.   The natural, fragrance free activated carbon filter literally soaks up odors better than baking soda, coffee, and vinegar combined.   All you have to do is hang or place one on each shelf for incredible effectiveness.  Also Fridge It can be used with great results in your freezer too if your ice is tasting or smelling off.

 Garbage/Trash area – The smell of garbage can quickly permeate the entire house.   To eliminate this problem, again use the power of activated carbon.  Fridge It odor absorbers easily clip on to, or hang from trash cans.  Just keep a couple near by your trash can and odors get stopped in their tracks.

 Garbage Disposal –  There are several ways to keep odors away here.  Pouring baking soda down the drain with water helps but another product that does a nice job is Plink Disposal Cleaner.   The unique little balls break open to deodorize the disposal and dissolve some of the oil and fat build ups that are causing the smell.

 Stove Top Vent – As grease and oils build up, so will odors.   Use a natural lemon or orange based degreaser to wipe away build ups.  These products effectively cut through grease so you can easily wipe it away and leaves no residue.   There are several effective and natural cleaners available for this.

 Cabinets – Cabinets are another unsuspecting source of kitchen odor as they store food, oil, damp dashes and glasses and other assorted kitchen items.    A great way to eliminate this as a cause for kitchen odors is to place a FRIDGE IT odor absorber in each cabinet, getting rid of the odor at the source.

 Under Sink – Another area that is a culprit for odors resulting from moisture, trash and storage is definitely under the sink.   This is another great place for hanging or placing a couple of FRIDGE IT activated carbon odor absorbers.  It’s that easy.

 So, the bottom line is keep your kitchen surfaces and floors clean but use activated carbon odor absorbers like FRIDGE IT for targeted areas and natural greaser’s and deodorizes for garbage disposals and hood vents.

When odors are a nuisance, time to find out the where, what, how and who.

When odors become a nuisance, it is time to find out why.  Odor creates an early warning system that alerts the nose that something going on around you  is not right and begins to irritate your nose, sending signals to the brain and creates a pain point with odor. You then smell  the odor, think of it as something you need to fix, clean, or investigate. 

There can be good odors such as a camp fire, or onions cooking, but in most cases, odors mean something needs to be cleaned or fixed. If you smell smoke you look for a fire, if you smell odors you look for the source.

The thing about odor is it is very persistent. It keeps bugging you until you do something about it.  Doing something often leads to a search on the Internet as you try to describe the odor to a search engine and seek a solutions. You would rather tell a computer your odor problem then your friends and family.

The first step is to identify “where” the odor is coming from.  The where can tell you many things about how to get rid of  the odor or bad stinky smell.  Is it fixed by simply  just throwing  a dirty diaper? Or is it more serious, like something stinks and it is coming from inside a wall or coming from your closet, kitchen, fridge, freezer, shoe rack or car?

Once you have identified the general area of the odor, that the “what” comes in.  What kind of odor is it?  Is it a smelly sneaker? Is it a cooked fish smell or a smelly carpet or a cat litter box? is it something you can smell put cannot see?

Once you know the what, then the question can be searched on “how” do I get rid of the specific odor? Or if you can get even more specific: How to I get rid of the odor in my refrigerator? Or even more specific in detail like, how do I get rid of the onion odor in my ice maker in the freezer. The more specific you can be the better the solution will be.

This leads to the “who” of odors.  Who should I trust and choose to fix my problem.  Is is a search that leads you to a  product like an odor absorber? What is the product about?  Is it environmentally friendly? Can it really fix the problem and keep it solved in the longterm. Read the label, is the product non toxic? Is it fragrance free or scented.  What are the warnings.

Do I need an air freshener spray that will fix the problem right now, or I need to call in someone who will do the job like a carpet cleaner or a mold specialist?

Yes ,odors are a nuisance and thank goodness they are, so in their own way odors help you.  They give you the heads up that you need to get rid of that odor or smelly problem right away. Happy odor web searching.

What is a good odor absorber or deodorizer for a musty closet smell?

What is a good odor absorber or deodorizer for a musty closet smell is one of the most often asked questions on this blog.  Musty closest needs an odor absorber, damp closet needs a moisture absorber.  They  are very different in use.

For a musty closet use a Fridge It odor absorbers for large odor elimination or and Innofresh activated charcoal odor absorber for smaller odor problems.  It will absorbs the odors in the air for up to 4 to 6 months. 

It also works well in closets or any contained space, like car, motorhome, boat, RV, fridge, freezer or dresser draws.

Damp closet use Damp Rid or similar product that can absorb the moisture, it will not do as much for odor control, but works for taking moisture out of the air.  A good odor absorber is one that get the musty smell controlled and eliminated in your closet.  I prefer fragrance free, but some prefer a short term solution like a spray.

5 biggest mistakes made in odor removal.

Five biggest mistakes made in odor removal.  Agreed, odor removal is not a glamorous subject, but critical to your nose all the same.  Odors cause pain, discomfort and embarrassment.  Odor removal is often rushed, not well thought out and due to that rush for a solution bad choices for odor removal are made.

The 5 biggest mistakes in odor removal are:

1: Trying a short term solution like a spray to cover the odor for a short time, only to have the odor reappear once the spray’s gone.

2: Lighting a candle with a fragrance, equally smelly as the odor, masking the odor with a strong scent.

3:  Cleaning the area will remove the odor problem.  It won’t in all cases where the surface may have been cleaned but the fabric or cracks in the material still have the odor problem.

4:  Buying a product that says it is for another type of odor, instead of matching the odor problem to the correct solution. Carpet odor products are not good for pets, nor is a candle product good for diaper odor.

5: Trying to out wait the odor.  Thinking the odor will go away in a day or two.  Dead mouse in wall is one of those bad odors that you just want to go away, so you try to outlast it, but it gets the better of you and that is why you went to the  Internet to find a solution and are reading this blog.

Basically sprays, oils, candles will mask the odor temporarily and will require additional treatments. What you really needed is a odor absorber that will absorb the odor.  Fridge It odor absorbers are made from naturally activated carbon, natures best odor absorber.  So you place it once and it absorbs odors for 4 to 6 month. You then can forget about odor problems  are solved.  Six of them cost under $20.00, so they are very inexpensive and so effective.  Place a few around the house and you will notice the difference, things just smell fresher with no fragrance and they are non -toxic which is great for children and pets.
