Odor absorbers & air fresheners

5 ways to avoid travel odor

I had a search for an odor absorber that you could take with you out of the country. The question came from a reader who was traveling to India and said the smells are just horrible and have a bad sink to her nose.  The hotel rooms smelled really bad, like bad body odor and curry spice.

 So she was wondering if Fridge It did such a good job for her house and refrigerator, could she bring them with her when she traveled and use the odor abosbers in the hotel room or on a bus or in a meeting room? 

The answer is yes!

1: You can travel with them since there is no spill and non- toxic and not flammable.

2: You need to take them out of the packaging and place them in a plastic zip baggie that can be opened for inspection, but also reseal them in the bag, so it will not be absorbing smells of your luggage. Unless you want that. Some use them in the suit case to keep clothes smelling odor free during the travel process.

3: There are versions made just for your luggage, ( flat wafers, ) so that the odor of your last location is not carried to your next destination.

4: They also can be placed on the hotel draws to prevent odor transference to your clothes or can take smoke smell out of the clothes to extend ware.

5: I some time take 6 out and put them all in one room and it is amazing to me how the air smells so fresh and clean.  So multiples may be needed to absorb odors in a short time frame.

So yes, bring Fridge It and let us know how it worked.  If you have any other questions about traveling with Fridge It contact the manufacturer by email at customerservice@innofresh.com or go to their web site at :   www.innofresh.com

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.

 To find Fridge It or Innofresh you can contact the manufacturer by email at  customerservice@innofresh.com or check the web site www.fridgeit.com for more info.

How to remove boy smell from room

Face it,  boys are smelly.  A boys room stinks!   Beyond the B.O. (Body odor),  just get a boy 8 years and older in a room, close the door and let the odor begin!  Get to 13 and the smell is overpowering.  Odor elimination is key as apposed to trying to mask the smells with scents.

The biggest  part of the boy smell problem comes from sneaker odor.  That really needs to be attended to quickly by placing  a charcoal odor absorbers in each sneaker.  Add in that a boys room generates more heat when they and their friends are there and you need to get the boy smell odor out of the air.  Once the boy in the pre teen or teen odor stage, it is very understandable that an ongoing odor absorber strategy and an odor solution is needed,  beyond bathing and showering.

 Plainly every mother and father knows “Boy Smell”, sometimes moms call it “Smelly Boy”, it is a rancid combination of perspiration, heat, rank smelling hair and well worn favorite cloths, sneakers, sports equipment, gym bags and shoes that add to the unique smell that can only come from a boys room.

 It does call for action. First – shower or a bath is job one, cleaning the room is job two.  When it comes to group boy smell ,this is not going to be enough.  The sneakers and room in general need to have odor absorbers.  I recommend a charcoal odor absorber for foot odor by  www.Innofresh.com,  Innofresh odor eliminator to get the odors out of the air and does not mask the smell. 

If the sneakers need special odor treatment, take the shoe or sneaker and place inside a baggie.  Place three Innofresh foot odor absorbers in the bag, two inside the shoe foot area and one outside in the bag and allow air to stay in the bag and give it a day and check the progress. It will take a few days to get the odor down to a reasonable level or hopefully odor free.  If the sneakers are badly soiled, try removing the insoles and replacing it with a sports insole from www.walkpainfree.com .  I love their inserts!

 If you have really bad Boy Smell, then use the larger versions of the carbon odor absorber called Fridge It , nnaturally activated Charcoal odor absorber in several key spots. Under the bed , in the closet, hung on the hamper and trash can and in the gym bag. This will do wonders for getting the “boy smell” out of the room.  For a larger room you may need 4 to 6  odor absorbers depending on how strong the odor in from your boys are.
