Odor absorbers & air fresheners


Removing a smell coming from kitchen cabinets.

I get lots of search requests on getting rid of odors or smells from kitchen cabinets.  Many are from homeowner who have just remodeled  their kitchen with brand new kitchen cabinets. The cabinets look like a dream, but the are very unhappy that the new cabinets ooze a horrible cabinet odors and stinky glue smell.  So bad they wished they had not changed the cabinets out.

The other type of cabinet odor removal search is from owners of homes that have lived in thier homes for many years or new home buyers who have just moved in and cannot stand the last owners odors left in their cabinets. The common complaint is there is an unpleasant odor coming from the kitchen when I open my kitchen cabinets.  Odors can also come from bathroom and garage cabinets,  as well as dresser draws.  The question searched always is: How do I get rid of this kitchen cabinet odor?

You can mask the odor with a scented over-spray. An air freshener will do this covering of odors for a short term fix.  If you are looking for get rid of the odor for good so you don’t smell it then you need to get an activated charcoal odor absorber like FridgeIt.    Fridge It odor absorbers have been used for over 10 years for cabinet and draw odors with great results.

 Just place one odor absorber inside each cabinet and you will notice the odors will be absorbed. They last up to 6 months, so this is long term odor elimination and absorption.

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.



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.



Summer is coming and so are the odors. Top summer odor problems

Summer  smells and odors go hand in hand.  Some really good smells, like the smell of flowers or crisp sea airbring joy and happiness. Others are the smells that turn into odors, like hot and oppressive heat and the odors that come with Summer that bring us to a pain point to find a way to get rid of the odor.  The higher the temperature and humidity the more people are looking for odor control with an odor absorber

Odors are a year round problem, but other than when there is a hurricane and the electricity is out, do we see such an increase in people buying odors absorbers and searching on the Internet for various solutions to their individual odor problems. Summer odor problems start in the middle of May and seems to go until mid Sept.

 The top summer odor problems are:

1: Refrigerator odor.  The higher the temp the more the fridge has to work. Add to that the summer vegetables and take out foods and you have a ripe refrigerator needing odor control.

2: Sandal and sneaker odor.  Lets face it, you are outside running around, shopping or taking the kids to the park in bear feet, no socks with heat and humidity.  Odors just grow and grow, so use an odor absorber in each shoe at night.

3: Pet odor.  Pets is cages when the heat goes up, needs cleaning more often.  If that does not happen, odors will use a  Pet odor absorber to do the trick for pet odors.

4: Car odors: In summer you live in your car, you eat in your car, you go to the beach, you change in your car.  All that extra living sure adds to the odors coming from you car.  Either an odor absorber or an air freshener will work well to get rid of odor or cover the odor with a scent.

5: Boat, RV and camping ice chest odor. Ah, the great outdoors. There you are out in your boat, living in a RV and storing your food in ice chests.  Giving you the idea that you can escape to the great out doors, but you cannot escape  from vacation odors.  Sleeping blankets, tents, even the trash gets a little pungent. So stock up on a case of odor absorbers for those vacation needs. Also works great if you bring it along for airline luggage odor and hotel room smells.

So enjoy Summer while it is here and remember that odors can be controlled with odor absorbers.



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.

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.
