Ecomomic troubles creates a need for odor control.

Perhaps we all have gone home to spend less money, to watch the new fall line up or just try to cut back from the go go of the past 8 years. What I have noticed for the past few weeks is we are staying close to home, we are eating as a family at family meals, unheard of… at least at our house. 

I have developed an urge to clean and sort and gain control back in my life.  If I cannot control the economics around me than I can do something to control what is around me, which is clutter and odor.

With that urge to clean comes odors that I have not encounterd in a long time.  I have cleaned closets with the need to get rid of the musty smell, kitchen cabinets to get rid of the smell of the wood that has always bothered me. The trash can, it needed a good washing and a change of odor absorber.  I have cleaned out the refrigerator, and freezer and added a new charcoal odor absorber to neutralize the odors.  I have cleaned the camping equipment and placed them away for the season with odor absorbers to help absorb the fire smell from our last camp out.

I sorted out the excesses of clothes that the kids have outgrown, that my waist line has out grown, or that I bought and never wore and now think it was a waste. I have aired out my closets, but more space to let the odors absorbers work in the closets. 

 I have washed my car and cleaned the inside, getting a new lilac scented air freshener for the car. My husband likes fragrance free, so he got an auto odor eliminator.

 I have cleaned out the pet crabs cage and the crab still smells, so I am back to 4 pet odor absorbers that keep the critters world and mine smelling clean.

I have cleaned my summer shoes and sneakers and placed a charcoal foot odor absorber for each shoe, so it will be fresh smelling all winter and when I need them again. 

I have teen age sons with “boy smell’ issues, I guess they had not been around much, but now I have added a larger sized odor absorber in each of their rooms and bathroom.  I cleaned out their gym bags and put new odor absorbers in each bag.

 I guess if I cannot control the economic troubles these days, I can sure get rid of my clutter and odors, that I chose to ignore and now are front and center. In these times I can control odor in my home and with my odor absorbers keeping my house and fairly odor free…  I am home…and home smells good.

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.

Ways to help prevent closet and linens odor

Closets are an eco system all in themselves.  Odors, stinks and smells come in many levels and many kinds. There are the odors from clothes, books and boxes that are stacked on the shelves.  There are the shoes on the floor all emitting odor.  Add a laundry bag with smelly clothes ready to be washed or just dumped on the ground stacking up. 

There is the smell of moth balls if you have or had a moth issue.  The smells of old things, like your mothers favorite purse or mink stole or your stash of memories from high school that has the smell of metal taste in your month.  

Add in the boxes and boxes of photos and keep sakes, and your ski or sports equipment all crammed into the back corner and the list goes on and on as to what will cause odor in your closets… you will have an odor problem. 

 There are also the linen closet smells, such as pillows that are past their throw out date.  Smells from blankets that you keep avoiding washing.  They can smell like grandma perfume or her bad breath.  Yuck!

The smell of towels that might have been folded too soon after being washed and have a mildew smell.

There is the closet smell from the pet that has gone to the bathroom in the closet or the mouse who has died in the closet or in the wall.  It all adds up to adding levels of stink, odor, terrible smells and bad whiffs.

 The lucky thing is a closet is a small space that is able to be closed, so odor elimination is possible. That is getting rid of the odor by taking the smell out of the air, so it does not return and leaving no other smell in its place.  It is the same process as cars that have an odor issues, that a naturally activated charcoal odor absorber does the work very well.  I would suggest 4 cubes for  regular size closet.

 It takes the smell out of air and the smell attaches to the charcoal odor eliminator, with no muss, spill or smell.  Plus your linens, clothes will smell so much fresher, as well as everything else in your closet.

 Before using a odor absorber like Fridge It or Innofresh odor absorber and eliminator, be sure to clean the area or the clothes so you area starting with a good base line.  If it the cat has pee in the closet, clean it up, don’t leave it there.  If not it may take way longer. 

If the issue is mold or water damage, you need to get professional help, an odor absorber will not do you much good since the problem will keep growing which is not good.
