Some products come in the form of sprays for temporary masking the smells. While other products can pull moisture out of the air to reduce a dampness and lessen the odor.  Most common is the use of a temporary spray that masks the smell, while other types pf sprays works with the fabric or carpet to freshen the fiber.  

5 top tips for finding the right odor absorber

 1: Activated Charcoal Odor Absorbers: These odor absorbers are natural, non toxic and fragrance free as an odor absorber solution by using Activated Charcoal filters.  Products such as Fridge It   cube or wafer is used for refrigerator odor elimination, as well as for dead mouse odor or closet odors.  Innofresh wafer odor eliminates for sport odor, footwear smells, pet odor, auto odors.   The odor absorber with activated charcoal has absorption into the filter and that traps the smell, so the odor or smell is gone.  This would be used in odor in refrigerators odors, freezers that smell and for ice that taste bad, smelly sneakers, autos that smell, RV’s , musty closets, basement odor, smelly laundry rooms and  for trash odor, pet odor and litter box odor. 

 2: Air freshening sprays: such as Ozium Timemist Fresheners which is a spray to mask the odors, is best used  in bathrooms, bedrooms or in large areas that need a fast freshening for odor.  

3: Moisture absorbers: Such as Damp Rid  uses materials that pull moisture out of the air, which then reduces the odors and musty smells that can come from moisture from a room or basement.  

4: Air fresheners oils, gels: Such Pure Linen odor absorbers or Cedar Magic as or other scented oils, plug-ins or gel air fresheners  are known for infusing a smell into cars, boats, bathrooms ect.

One of the best options is to try to remove the odor all together.  This is better than masking them.  Check the labels on all odor removing products to be sure it is non toxic, no spill and what the warning may be for the product. If you have allergies than  using a product that traps and eliminates odors from food spills, pet dander, and from other musty smells, odors needs to be done without using overpowering fragrances.  The length of time you have or can tolerate to remover the odor is a key consideration. Is this a short-term odor or a longer odor problem.

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.

Summer turns to fall, then winter and putting away your summer clothes in your closet and the change over of your clothes each season is your annual ritual. Due to this process you start to notice things about your closet. How your closet smells and what kind of closet odor and odor removal you need gets more attention. Yes, it is a good idea to use a closet odor absorber year round and change it 3 times per year.

Closet odor can be easily eliminated with an activated charcoal odor absorber like Innofresh odor eliminators.  Why do you have closet smells and odors and how do you need to get them under control? The other question is do you want to neutralize the odor so it is fragrance free, or you want to add a scent and use an air freshener to be more what you had in mind.

You contribute to closet odor by adding moth balls, clothes you have worn and hung, footwear, coats or by placing things on the top shelves in musty card board boxes. Add what you have on the floor in the closet like shoes, sneakers and add the odor from the shoes on the shoe rack or the shoes and purses just thrown into the bottom of the closet, all add to the odor problem.  Add in tightly packed clothes on hangers that are not allowed to air out and then shut them in a small sealed room and you will have closet odor.

Thus you need to have a three zone approach. One to three absorbers for top shelf items, place one in each box or bag.  The hanger area, you need to allow some air flow, so unjamming the clothes is a must and hang an odor absorber to prevent odor transfer.  On the bottom of the closet get the foot odor absorbers for each shoe that can be placed into the shoes that are not worn, to absorber the odors. If you use the closet  as most do as your catch all for sports equipment, ect, then be sure to place a larger activated charcoal refrigerator odor absorber like a Fridge It cube in on the floor, to grab odors. Figure one Fridge It charcoal odor absorber can help a 6′ x 6′ area, if there is good air flow.  If not, you need more and segment them per zone in your closet for odor control and odor elimination. No one wants a smelly closest, so an naturally activated charcoal odor absorber will do the job nicely. So yes it is a good idea of use a closet odor absorber over a air-freshener. Air fresheners will not remove te odor, just add a scent to all your clothes.

Fridge It is a naturally activated charcoal odor absorber that absorbs refrigerator and freezer odors,  It can keep your ice maker smelling great and ice tasting fresh.  Fridge It is a purple cube that last up to 6 months. it is also great for under the sink, near trash containers, storage closets, garages, RV and Boats.
