 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.

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



Fridge-It Fridge Odor Absorber does eliminate tough odor

I get lots of questions on where to find Fridge It (R) Naturally Activated Carbon absorber and does it work well?  The answer is yes, because it is designed to eliminate the tough odors in refrigerators and freezers.

They also ask can you use it in more than the refrigerator? Yes, Fridge-It can also be used for house, garage and car odors, pets, closets, RV’s, boats. 

They ask if it is messy or toxic?.  No, it is not a messy, it is a cube or flat wafer, so no spray and it cannot spill, or make a mess.  Yes, It is non toxic and safe. 

So here is the background on why it works.  Fridge It is made of natures best odor absorbing material, carbon. Fridge it uses advance porous technology and patented airflow design to maximize odor absorption. It’s naturally activated charcoal element in the absorsber traps and neutralizes odors. Drawing the odor out of air and trapping it in the absorber. 

Depending on the odor, for regular odor maintenance it will last up to 6  month. For bigger odor issues, you will need more and once the odor as been captured, you are going to need to replace it earlier or double or triple up, depending on the odor.  The goal is no odor, no scent.

Fridge It now comes in two sizes and shapes.  The original Fridge It Cube for bigger odor issues or the flatter Fridge-It Wafer, so areas that are needing a smaller odor absorber.

My most frequent questions is readers asking where they can buy Fridge It?.  It is available at selected retailers, like Sur la Table, Camping World and Military Commissaries and seems to be growing everyday.  Also a hint:  They sell an Innofresh Auto odor eliminator in auto retailers, which is a clear holder in the wafer shape. It is the same type of product, packaged for the auto market.  So The CSK auto supply chain of Checker Auto, Schucks, Krager Auto, Murray’s also carry it and would work the same.

You can also order on-line direct from the manufacturer Innofresh  with a minimum order of a 6 pack ( they do allow combos to mix and match product) at the Innofresh website who sells Fridge It , go to, www.innofresh.com or at www.fridgeit.com, click on order and it will bring you to thier shopping cart.  You can also down load an order form from their web site, if you want to order by mail.

Those who want to order just one to five odor absorber, can look at the links section of this blog, I have added many of the other on-line retailers who see the product.  I have attached some photos, so you can see what you are looking for.

How to get rid of carpet and rug odor

I get a lot of requests to the blog to address carpet and rug odor and how to get rid or is it possible to absorb odors with Fridge it odor absorbers. Yes it does work as an odor absorber for carpets.

There is a simple explanation for odors in the carpet and it has not to do with the top level cleaning for dirty carpet,  it has to do with dirt and liquids such as urine going down into the carpet fiber, carpet backer and into the padding.

 Most carpets that are cleaned get the surface dirt, some steam clean gets the fiber soil, but not much gets the padding clean.  The issue is when a carpet is cleaned the moisture wicks down and forces the moisture into the padding layer, the stain and odor stays and the odors returns in short time.  The other issue is that most use spray a fragrance in the carpet cleaning product or in the stain resistance spray they add after cleaning.  This to some is not a pleasant smell and they describe it as odor.

The first issue is to determine the type of odor, if it is a pet stain, then you need to carpet clean all layers and then use a odor absorber to collect the odor and trap it.

If it is a musty smell or cigarette smell in the rug, then a few odor absorbers should do the job.

If it is general traffic dirt on your carpet, then a cleaning of the carpet is all you will need. If it is body odor, then an air-freshener or odor absorber in addition to the cleaning is needed.

If it is a spilled drink or bottle, like milk or soda.  Clean the spot and use an odor absorber to gather up the odors and get them trapped at the localized level. Milk or baby formula that is spilled will have a sour smell forever and will grow over time with heat or humidity.

If the issue is mold or water damaged carpet then professional help is needed, including removing the pad, repacing carpet and treating the cement. In that case, once treatment is done, then the sour smell can be controlled with odor absorbers.

If it is ground in food, clean the area of the carpet and use an odor absorber to gather the odor up. 

For carpets, I recommend the wafer odor absorber products, like Innofresh odor eliminator, or for bigger areas use Fridge It Charcoal odor cubes.  Figure one to two is needed for each 8′ x 10′ area.  I place them under the couch, or under the coffee table, to be sure they get the odor captured close to the source. Give it 24 hours and you should be smelling odor free.

Are you Allergy sensitive to odor elimination products? The goal is to get rid of odor or that sour smell in your house.

Fragrances from gels sprays, plug ins and oils can cause issues to those with allergies. Allergen Free options are available with activated carbon filters like the Innofresh line  www.innofresh.com that do not disperse irritants into the air. They absorb odors and are fragrance free, non toxic and nothing to spill.

Irritants can linger in the air causing allergic reactions long after they are sprayed or opened.  Ever notice when you go into a car with a fragrance air freshener you start sneezing?  Ah Ha or more likely Ah Choo.

 Keep your nose and lungs clear and open, and still eliminate odors instead of creating irritants that make you feel bad due to fragrances.  If you spray in the air,  you are in-hailing it through your nose.
