Odor absorbers & air fresheners


Fridge It in the linen closet absorbing odors.

Today we put away all the winter blankets in the linen closet. Refolded everything, threw out a few old pillows and tossed some frayed blankets. Revisited my grandmothers wonderful handy work that now that she is gone, I treasure so much.

As we cleaned what we noticed was a musty smell coming from the closet, even though it all was clean.  Just over time odors where building up and changing the smell of the linens, pillows, blanket and towels.

We also have a storage linen closet that also had a very musty linen closet smell. So this year we layered the blankets we were storing with Fridge It odor absorbers in the layers of blankets. It is the same product that works so well in refrigerators for odor.  It also works well for home smells, condo odors and for coop, flats and apartment odors.

 The closet , rooms or apartments have the same type of  contained area with air flow, so an activated odor absorber is a perfect solution.  So all summer as the heat rises, the linen odors  or house odors will be absorbed.  Good odor tip.  No odors means no re-cleaning next fall all the blankets.

Odor Control Tips

Let me begin by giving credit where credit is due. Virtually everything I’ve learned about controlling litter box order was obtained from people sharing information at Litter box Central (www.litterbox-central.com ). My notes here are for the most part simply a condensation from that source.


Here are several factors that contribute to litter box odor — and probably the largest single component is what goes in to your cat. The right cat food can make a huge difference between a miserably stinky environment and one that’s odor free. (Please take a few moments to read the Scoop Free section at Litter box Central for more on this topic).

Choice of Litter

The second biggest variable is in your choice of litter (see Recommended Litter).  After a lot of testing (totally by myself and friends, using our own noses) I’ve come to the conclusion that for the most part, the Fresh Step crystals work the best for me.  I emphasize for me, as some people may have problems with the scent used in this litter, etc.  But generally I’ve found this to be the best choice, with the highest odor-absorbing capability.

Activated Charcoal Odor Absorbers

Being the incessantly curious person that I am, I noticed that many of the litter companies have started advertising heavily around activated charcoal in their products. After some searching (and further experimentation), I found a pretty darned amazing product — Innofresh. I spent some time talking with them on the phone to learn more about their odor absorbers to learn as much as I could — but the real proof was when my wife noticed a significant further reduction in odors after I’d had a unit in my Scoop Free for a couple of days.

Now that was the critical test.  Pretty impressive.

I keep one stuck under the purple lid. It simply clips to one of the “vanes” that hold the magnet, and lasts about 3 months. I was so impressed I signed on as a product distributor, and now carry them here in a 4 pack for $14.00.  (It doesn’t make sense with shipping and all to just order one).

Here’s the info from Innofresh:

Innofresh™ PET Fragrance Free odor absorbers utilizes our patented activated carbon technology to eliminate odors and is completely fragrance free. No worry about irritating or harmful fragrances for your pets or yourself. Fragrances just cover up odors while Innofresh™ PET odor absorber traps and eliminates those lingering odors from your pets.

Our activated carbon odor absorbers work effectively against those tough litter box odors, as well as in areas where gerbils, pet mice, hermit crabs, ferrets or other small animals are kept. Just clip our odor absorber on to your cat litter box or even outside small animal cages to eliminate odors safely and effectively and without chemicals, gels, powders or sprays. Built in clip securely fastens to most litter boxes, and cages. Don’t settle for litter that claims to control odors. Eliminate them with Innofresh™ Pet activated carbon odor absorbers and to use Forever Litter Tray® (permanent replacement for Scoop Free® disposable cartridges)

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



Top odor problems for autos and trucks

Cars and trucks have their own odor issues.  I have had many come to this blog looking for odor elimination solutions for cars, trucks and pick ups.

 

The areas that they are searching to get rid of cigarette smoke, cigar smoke and pipe odors.  They also are looking for how to get rid of trunk odor of various kinds.  They also look for odor elimination in cars from pet smells and of course the “I eat in my car and it now stinks”, how do I get the smell out of my car. 

A few have asked about spilled milk or getting rid of milk odor.  A few have also asked about musty odor smells from water getting in the car or musty smells from mud or hunting or camping equipment that were lift in the car and now the car stinks.  The most unusual ones to me are the how do I get dead mouse or animal smell in the car or truck?

 

There are basically a few options to get rid of your car, truck or pick up odor problems, this also applies to RV’s.:

1:  Clean out the car, bring it to a car wash and vacuum out the garbage is the base line.

2: Deturmine the source of the odor.  If it can be washed and cleaned out, do that.  If it is has been cleaned and it still stinks and you cannot get to the stink out then we are going to need to use an air freshener or auto odor eliminator.

3: For odors that you want to mask with a scent you choose, use Visor Fresh auto air fresheners,  www.innofresh.com.  They have a scent in the plastic that has a long lasting fragrance release.

4: For odor elimination use  Innofresh odor eliminator which is fragrance free, so no scent is added and you get rid of your odor, since it absorbs the odor. You may need to use several depending on the odor. You can get them at: Innofresh Auto Odor Eliminator at  Checker Auto, Schucks Auto, Kragen Auto, Murrys Auto.  it will work for more than auto, just branded auto for the auto segment and the manufacuter knows you may be looking where ever there is inventory to buy  or contact the manufacturer by email at customerservice@innofresh.com or their web site at www.innofresh.com.



10 Top ways to get rid hurricane odor

How to control the odors after hurricanes is a huge issue that the readers of my blog are asking about. The news of big hurricane hitting the gulf coast,  Florida and now Texas reminded me to tell you of the lessons learned about odor and odor control from Katrina.  In talking with the manufacturer of Fridge It and Innofresh Odor Eliminator that during the last big hurricane disaster the numbers of calls for the Fridge It cubes  and Innofresh Odor Eliminators was tremendous.  They had to go into additional production for months after the storm.

The reason  to consider a naturally activated charcoal odor absorbers is:

 1: Simply it works by absorbing large amounts of odor in the porous charcoal. Natures best odor absorbing material carbon. Fridge It has taken it and added advanced porous technology and air flow design for maximum odor absorption.  Even after the electric is back on and you clean out the refrigerator, it will still stink.  Thus they get many calls weeks after the storm for Fridge It odor absorbers.

2: The Charcoal traps odor and more importantly neutralizes air borne odor, not mask them with a scented spray.

3: The Innofresh odor eliminators or the Fridge It Cube odor absorbers requires no battery or electricity, so it can be put to work absorbing odors right away, even before the electricity can be turned back on.

4: It is non toxic and completely safe.

5: It is cheap, under $5 for each cube or flat wafer.

6; The odor control does not mask the odor with a strong scent that may aggravate allergies.

7: It is a convenient size. 3″ x 3″ or smaller , so you can use many around the house and not have it seem obvious.

8: It last 4 to 6 months, so this will keep on working for you.

9:  It works on all sorts of odors: refrigerator odor and freezer smells. smoke from cigarettes, food spills, pets, dead mouse smell and other musty odors a hurricane will create.  It will not work on mold or things that are actually water damaged or water soaked, you need professional help for that type of extraction. Once the water has been extracted, and a mold spray has happened, then the odor absorbers are effective.

10: It works well if you use it in the plastic bags to protect or water proof your clothes you saved and want to protect during the clean up process. You toss a Fridge It cube or Innofresh wafer odor abosrber into the plastic bag and sealed the bag and the clean clothes stay odor free. 

As the house dries out, and the odors start, putting non effected clothes and linens, toys and other things you do not want to damage in the dry out process in sealed bags with an odor absorber will prevent the odors from transferring to those items.

For those looking for the product, you can get them on line at the stores listed on the left links on the side of this blog that say buy or at retail at:   Your can buy Fridge It retail  at:   Camping World, Sur La Table and at US Military Commissaries across the county.  Yes military base stores.

As  Innofresh Auto odor absorber at auto supply stores: Checker Auto, Schucks, Auto, Kragen Auto, Murrys Auto.  It will work for more than auto, just focused on auto for the auto segment and the manufacuter knows you may be looking whereever there is inventory to buy or contact the manufacturer by email at customerservice@innofresh.com or their web site at www.innofresh.com.  They can also ship direct to you in lots of 6, 12 24 or case lots or more or direct you to on line stores that carry it if you want less than 6 at a time.



ABC News, Good Morning America: Debunking Food Myths

 

This is a interesting report that proves my point about how good activated charcoal odor absorbers are like the purple cube, Fridge It.

ABC news reported on: Debunking Food Myths

Culinary Expert Ted Allen Gives You the Skinny on Food Fact and Fiction

Does baking soda really take away nasty refrigerator odors?
The Test: A food tech places his head into two refrigerators full of rotting, rancid food. One has a pound of baking soda and the other does not. He does his best to keep their heads in the refrigerators. The refrigerator that the food tech can keep his head in the longest is declared the winner.

The Result: Baking Soda does help with odors in your fridge, but activated charcoal works better. It works so well because it is extremely porous.
