 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.

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.



My new luggage smells really bad. What can get rid of the odor?

Luggage odor, the luggage has a bad smell or developed a bad  luggage stink. Or if you just purchased a sets of new luggage, or you  tried airing them out and you wondered how to get that smelly ” new plastic” smell out of them?   Use a Fridge It cube odor absorber placed inside the sealed luggage for inside odor.  If you are storing the luggage or it has a odor from the outside. Place the luggage in a plastic bag with a few odor absorbers, leave some air space in the plastic bag and seal the luggage in the bag for odor issues, or jsut want odor free luggage.  Fridge It absorbs the odors quickly.  If you do not want your clothes to pick up the smell from the suit case or have to do laundry or wear that odor around during the trip, bring a few along on the trip.  They are also really good for hotel room odor, airplane odor , bus odor and train smells to keep your seat /space odors under control from other passengers.

It is the same product that absorbs odors from refrigerators and freezers.  The activated carbon can absorb and trap the odors in the enclosed space of luggage,  just like it does a fridge.  Just as it works great for purses with odors or music cases or guitar cases.  Anything that has an enclosed area that it can remove odor from.

If you cannot enclose the absorber the the object than place the object in a plastic bag and place the Fridge It odor absorber in with it and seal the bag. This works for old book odor, or anything that may have picked up an odor you are having and issue with.



Good idea to use a closet odor absorber with activated charcoal.

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.

If you have more question you can get info from the web site at:  www.innofresh.com  the makers of Fridge It and Innofresh odor absorbers.

Fridge it and Innofresh product lineA question to my blog, is this the same Fridge It  products that sold on clip strips and in the kitchen gadgets section in Walmart for years and now I cannot find it?

Yes ….this is the same Fridge It  “purple cube” that you came to know, trust and love.  It is the same naturally activated carbon odor absorber that may of you have bought at Walmart for over 10 years.  Yes, Fridge It is still made all in the US and is manufactured at a plant that hires adults with disabilities that puts them to gainful work. So feel good about that.

The update is at the moment, they are not available in Walmart, but they do that to suppliers on occasion, and then they put it back in.  So If you love Fridge It  as much as I do, then ask every time you go into Walmart to – Bring Fridge It Charcoal odor absorber back.

They now have a great way to order on-line directly from the manufacturer.  They say they ship quickly to US, UK and Canada. The product is sold in the US, Canada, England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and India.  Other countries coming soon.

As a hint they told me that if you want to buy Fridge It from a store or retailer in the US,  that is currently available at Camping World, Sur La Table, and commissaries on US bases, as well as on-line at : Fridge It.  Many retail chains are looking very closely to adding it to their retail locations.  So ask at your local store or hardware. 

The automotive industry took a real liking to the product and they now sell under the Innofresh brand as wafers for auto odor and is sold at Checker Auto, Schucks Auto, Kragen auto, Murrays auto.

I have been told by the manufacturer that it has been picked up by distributor Harolds, so you may now see it at  food chains, health food stores or retailers who use this rack jobber.  You can order direct on-line for Fridge It   or click on this link to go to the official web site page for Fridge It.  If you want to be sent an order form by email: request that at orders@innofresh.com
