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.



The official sport of office odor. Odor ID your co-workers.

How does your office smell?  Most likely, like old socks and musty plants. Odors in the office are truly becoming a sport.  The official sport of office odor. Everyday you come into your office area faced with “whats that smell” and you get good at it and then you master it.  

Start off  easy with  the smells in your office. Can you ID  the smell or odor? Start to know which smells have to do with the time of day.  Start in the morning, when you come in ,  ask yourself, does it smell like brewing coffee or like a damp musty cave?

At lunch does it smell like a half eaten lean cuisine from the micro wave or gym sweat wafting at you from your co worker who went out for a workout and didn’t shower.  When you get up to go for the late afternoon 7th inning stretch, does it smell more like a closed up mine shaft or cabin, where the air is getting stale, still and smelly?  If so, you are playing the latest sport in America.  “What that odor” The official sport of  office odor.

Add in  the office refrigerator crammed with old left over lunches long forgotten,  or your boss who has an old plant that has gnats and smells like an old ladies house. The bathroom smells that follow people out of the restroom, you got it, your now ready to play.  Odor ID your co-workers.

The people  in your office all come as their own contestants ready for you to “name that odor”: 

Here they come, close your eyes: Is it  the breath mint boss, the perfumed hotty, the dude that brings his dog to work or the chick who wears the odor of her cat whom she sleeps with.  The delivery guy that has that diesel trail, or the accountant that smells like old paper and a hair piece sprayed with cheap hair spray. The investor with the expensive after shave, or  the sales pro with the BO problem. The admin who moth balls all her clothes and can’t smell it, or the marketing web guy who is a chain smoker.  I bet you have one of each at your office.

So sit back and enjoy the sport and when you want it to make it stop, here’s a tip: get creative and make a tower of Odor absorbers, all those odors will be quickly gone and the odor absorbed .  Your office will feel odor free and you can breath again and stop playing game.  But more important right now, the games on… What odor are you ?

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

My fridge smells! Getting rid of refrigerator odors has been an ongoing hassle, until I started using Fridge It odor absorber.  www.fridgeit.com It is a purple cube that is an activated charcoal odor absorber that you put in your refrigerator and it takes out the odors from your refrigerator and freezer , pronto.  By gosh… it really works.  No spills like other products I have tried that were always tipping over. This cube is self contained, so you can hang it or just stick it on the shelf.

The air flows through the cube and the smells are captured into the Naturally Activated Charcoal Odor Absorber. The product says it last six months and that is about right.  Plus it is very inexpensive, under $4.00 for a cube, so it is well worth it.

The other thing I tried was to put fridge it into my ice-maker catch bin and the ice cubes actually did not pickup freezer tastes or smells. Worked great and the ice cubes taste was so much improved.

I went on to try it in my garbage can in the garage and it worked great.  My friends have a boat and they said they tried it and it worked in their ice chests on their boat and they even leave a few around in the boat to keep the boat odors down in the boat itself.

Fridge It is made by Innofresh  and you can go to their web site www.innofresh.com or www.fridgeit.com, if you have trouble locating it, you can email at info@innofresh.com . I also like that it is made in the USA and is non-toxic.

So a big thanks to Fridge It for really getting my refrigerator and freezer odors under control.
