Fridge It: Hurricane Odor Absorber – How to remove the odors that Hurricane Irene leaves behind.

Hurricane Irene leave behind odors from the storm as well as from refrigerators that had no power and from the clean up that will take many weeks were odors can grow.   Odor absorbers are needed right now to place in many areas of your homes and businesses after hurricanes  hit.   The news of a big hurricane hitting the east coast reminds me of the odor removal lessons learned from the gulf coast,  Florida and Texas  storms regarding smells that will need to be removed and the general  odor and odor control from Irene.  In talking with the manufacturer of Fridge It activated charcoal odor absorbers and Innofresh Odor Eliminator that during the last big hurricane disaster, they always get a huge number of online orders and calls for their product Fridge It odor absorbing cubes  and Innofresh Odor Eliminators.  They have to go into additional production for months after the storm.

It is non toxic and completely safe. It is cheap, under $5 for each cube or flat wafer. The odor control does not mask the odor with a strong scent that may aggravate allergies. It is a convenient size. 3″ x 3″ or smaller , so you can use many around the house and not have it seem obvious. It last 4 to 6 months, so this will keep on working for you.   An average room will need 6 to really see some results.  Each cube works by pulling odors from an area approx 6 x 6 feet.  They do have case pricing and when you order a case, it comes with free shipping.

The reason  to use a naturally activated charcoal odor absorbers is:  Simply it works fast, it needs no electricity to work and the filters absorbs large amounts of odor in the porous charcoal. Natures best odor absorbing material is carbon. Fridge It has taken it and added advanced porous technology and air flow design for maximum odor absorption.  Even after the electric is back on and you clean out the refrigerator, it will still stink.  Thus they get many orders and calls weeks after the storm for Fridge It odor absorbers.

The Charcoal traps odor and more importantly neutralizes air-borne odor, not mask them with a scented spray. The Innofresh odor eliminators or the Fridge It Cube odor absorbers requires no battery or electricity, so it can be put to work absorbing odors right away, even before the electricity can be turned back on.

Fridge  It works on all sorts of odors: refrigerator odor and freezer smells. smoke from cigarettes, food spills, pets, dead mouse smell and other musty odors a hurricane will create.  It will not work on mold or things that are actually water damaged or water-soaked, you need professional help for that type of extraction. Once the water has been extracted, and a mold spray has happened, then the odor absorbers are effective.

If you need to protect valuables from the water damage,   Fridge It  activated charcoal odor absorber works well if you use it in the plastic bags to protect or water proof your clothes you saved and want to protect during the clean up process. You toss a Fridge It cube or Innofresh wafer odor absorber into the plastic bag and sealed the bag and the clean clothes stay odor free. 

As the house dries out the odors start thus placing non effected clothes and linens, toys and other things you do not want to damage in the dry out process in sealed bags with an odor absorber will prevent the odors from transferring to those items.

Top way to get rid of fish odor

Fish odor and getting fish smells out of your house has been searched for on this blog more and more lately. There are four different types of fish odors.  The odor from fresh fish as you store it in your refrigerator, second when you fillet the fish, third is the odor after you have cooked the fish. The fourth is if you have a fish tank and it is not maintained and gets the fish aquarium smell and odor problem.

Fish stored in your refrigerator is going to smell. Even when very fresh. The older the fish, the more it will smell, if not stink.  Start off by always using an charcaol odor absorber.   When you have fish in the refrigerator, double or triple up on the absorbers, for the length of time they are stored in the refrigerator. If the fish juice drips, you are going to have to clean the refrigerator in addition to the odor absorber.

Filleting of fish, the boards you use, the way you dispose of the the trimmed parts, all relate to cleaning and fish odor, much like an onion smell.  First use a board to cut on that is of a material that can be washed on hot in your dish washer. Lay paper towels under the board to catch the fish gut and juice.  Then place all the trim and paper in a sealed Baggie when the fish is filleted. High heat wash the board and you should be good to go. If you still have odor, use an charcoal odor absorber.

Cooked fish odor does linger, so you need an odor absorber to trap the fish smell that is now in the air.  This is important to do, since you do not want odor transfer to happen to your cloths, furniture or carpets. Odor absorbers works well for any strong cooking odor, like fish, onions or garlic.  This advice also works on general cooking odor and getting rid of onion, garlic or other strong cooking smells in your house.

 The fish in your aquarium does get an odor when the algae builds up.  For that odor type  use 2 to 3 odor absorbers to keep the odor contained close to the tank.  If you stand next to the tank and you can smell odor, you need an odor absorber.  Remember the odor absorber is not to be put in the tank.  It is placed outside the tank or clipped on the outside  of the tank or on the table near the tank.
