Odor absorbers & air fresheners


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.

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.

Five top ways to  eliminate and remove odors.

Odors can come in all types and levels.  The best way is to understand the underlying odor what is to find out what is causing  the odor . This identification of the smell will then lead to planning a strategy to remove the offending odor, either through odor removal  with odor absorbers or to overlay a smell to mask the odor with a scented air freshener, so the odor is masked.

There are five top ways to eliminate odor and there are different types of odors and solutions. The best solution will depend on the smell or odor and what is causing or had caused the odor.

Some odor removing products actually pull the odors or smells out of air.  Some products replace the smell with another smell on going. Some products are in spray form for masking temporary smells. Some products pull moisture out of the air to reduce a dampness and that will lessen the smell.  Some others are sprays that masks the smell and works with the fabric or carpet to freshen the fiber.

Innofresh Odor Absorbers

Innofresh Odor AbsorbersFridge It used to absorb odors in refrigerators

1: Activated Charcoal Odor Absorbers: Are a natural and fragrance free  odor absorber solution : Using Activated Charcoal filters.  Such as Fridge It  www.fridgeit.com or Innofresh odor eliminators www.innofresh.com .

The odor absorption  is in the filter and thus traps the smell out of the air into the filter, so the odor or smell is gone.  This would be used in odor in refrigerators, freezers, sneakers, autos, RV’s , closets, basements, laundry rooms and trash, foot odor, pet odor and litter box odor.

 2: Air fresheners: Such as Visor Fresh or other scented air fresheners for infusing a smell into cars, boats, bathrooms ect.

3: Air freshening sprays: such as  Glade or Ecco Mist Air Fresheners which is a spray to mask the odors, in bathrooms is a natural way.

4: Moisture absorbers: Such as Damp Rid which pull moisture out of the air, which reduces the musty smell factor in a room or basement.

5:  Spray on  fresheners:  Such as Febreze which is a fabric freshener that attaches to the fabric which chanages  the smell on fabric, cloths and carpet.

The best options is when you totally remove the odor  and  it is even better if you eliminate odors instead of masking them.  Also check out if it is non toxic and what is the mess factor of each product. Using a product that traps and eliminates lingering odors like food spill, pets and other musty odors needs to be done without overpowering fragrances, especially important if you have allergies.

The length of time the odor remover or odor eliminator works is a key consideration when you want to remove odor ongoing. These are the top five ways to eliminate and remove odors.
