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.



How to get odors out of packaging?

Packaging comes from different sources. If it is recycled and shredded and they shredded materials that had an odor so will your packaging.  It really depends on the type of packaging and what has happened to cause the odor.  If it was exposed to bug spray or heavy smoke, you should throw it away.  If not try an odor absorber first.

If it has just picked up a smell or odor then an odor absorber will work well.  Place the packaging in a plastic bag and seal it with 2 to 4 odor absorbers for 24 to 48 hours and see if the odor is gone or at least not noticeable.   If is is a normal  packaging smell that you are objecting to, like the smell of popcorn packaging, the odors aborbers will work, but the smell over time will return.

Cardboard packaging odor, not caused from moisture, will work well with an odor absorber. If is is moisture then it will not  work and the materials should be thrown away.  There are products that are used for basement odor from moisture and that would be a first place to start. 

I like to recommend Innofresh or Fridge it odor absorbers which has naturally actives charcoal and works great for odor elimination.



6 top quick odor absorbing solutions.

 

Six top odor absorbing solution that you can do right now. There are many products just waiting for the right odor or smell elimination They come as odor absorbers, air fresheners, In air sprays, moisture absorbers, on spot and speciality.

1: Activated Charcoal Odor Absorbers: These are  natural  ways to get rid of odor and they are fragrance free  as fast odor absorber solutions : Use the form as an Activated Charcoal filter.  Such as Fridge It   cubes or Innofresh wafer odor eliminators Innofresh . If the area is closed, such as a room, draw or inside a fridge these work great.

These odor absorption filters traps the smell out of the air into the filter, so the odor or smell is gone.  These would be great for use in odor in refrigerators, freezers, sneakers, autos, RV’s , closets, basements, laundry rooms and trash, foot odor, pet odor and litter box odor.

 2: Air fresheners: These are better for larger areas that need odor cover. Such as Visor Fresh or other scented air fresheners for infusing a smell into cars, boats, bathrooms ect.

3: Air freshening sprays: A bathroom must for quick odor short term cover, such as  Glade or Ecco Mist Air Fresheners which is a spray to mask the odors.

4: Moisture absorbers: Water or  mildew requires something that will take the odors out of the air. Products such as Damp Rid which pull moisture out of the air, which reduces the musty smell factor in a room or basement.

5:  Spray on  fresheners:  Fabric absorbs odors and keeps the odors in the fibers. Use products such as Febreze which is a fabric freshener that attaches to the fabric which chanages  the smell on fabric, cloths and carpet.

6: Speciality products: There are products for special types of odors, such as  urine, mold, blood ect, which need to be used for very difficult odors and clean up tasks.

The best option is to remove the odor  and eliminate odors instead of masking them.  See if the product is non toxic, non spill or non stain.   Does the product trap and eliminates odors such as food spilled, pets and other musty odors. Does the product leave you with a overpowering fragrance, that could cause issues if you have allergies.

Check the length of time the odor remover works and make that is a key consideration when you want to remove odor ongoing. 

Whatever type of odor you have there is a safe and natural solution.

Since 1992, Innofresh Products, Inc. activated carbon air freshener products have been on the leading edge of odor elimination science utilizing activated carbon technology also found in advanced medical and water treatment applications. While other companies offer scented products that just cover up odors, we approach the problem of odors differently by developing odor absorbers that eliminate the odors permanently rather than masking them with a fragrance that only covers up odors. Activated carbon has been used in other fields for years such as in medical devices and for water treatment as an exceptional material to eliminate contaminates.
