Here are the 5 top ways to choose which odor absorber or air freshener that is right for you and will eliminate and remove odors. Smells, can come in all types and levels of odors.  To really make the best choice, the first step is to find out what is causing the odor .  The identification of the source of the odor will give you your next steps and lead to a product for removing the offending odors. This can be done in various ways, from removing the odor with an odor absorber or to cover up the odor with a scented product, such as an air freshener. Some odor products pull the odors  out of air and absorb them. Others products replace the odor with a more pleasing smell, such as citrus or cinnamon. 

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.

5:  Spray on  fresheners:  Such as Febreze is used as a fabric freshener for clothes, linens, drapes, rugs and furniture. The spray in this product attaches to the fabric which changes  the smell on fabric, cloths and carpet.  

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.

 Odors are something you don’t ask your neighbors for advice on.  It is something you don’t want to talk to anybody about, but you do want to get rid of the odor or find out what kind of  odor it is . Or you have reached your nose pain point and you just want to find out how to get rid of the odor and be on your way. 

Searches for information on odor and odor elimination to gain internet advice on odors are extensive.  But why?  My thought is that odors are like bugs, there are so many types and that your don’t want to keep them; you want to get rid of rid of them as quickly as possible and you do not want to talk to anyone about your problem. What could possibly be on the life list to get rid or seek how do I get rid of that smell, and what should I use to fix this odor problem I have?  

Asking questions to the internet is the best step.  How can you get rid of an odor or a smell of a: Mice, rats, bugs, weeds, neighbor, boyfriend, old clothes may be at the top of the list getting rid of an odor.  So talk odors to your computer, it won’t tell anyone.  So what type of smell are you trying to get rid of?  What odor has become so offensive that you focused on getting advice on?

A great Q&A is at Innofresh website, check it out.




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.
