Odor absorbers & air fresheners


Kitchen Odors need a targeted approach for elimination.

There is plenty of good, and not so good, advise about eliminating kitchen and household odors and in particular, getting rid of the odors and smells that come from the kitchen.   Other than the noticeable odors that are from the bathrooms, or perhaps the room with the 3 cats and their litter boxes in the house, the kitchen usually in the culprit for the majority of the odor or “house smell” that is noticed almost immediately when entering a home or apartment.  The reason is that there are more sources of odor from that one room – the kitchen, than all other combined areas of the home.   As you walk into your home, likely first impression will come from the nose if it’s bad.  Instead, if the smell is clean and fresh, then you’re more likely to impress visitors with a pleasant welcome that says that you care.

 To effectively combat against kitchen odors, you need to take a targeted approach to each of the problems or sources of odor and not try to eliminate the odors by simply spraying some “odor eliminator” into the air.   These do very little to eliminate the odor for good.  What you need is to be armed with effective and specific solutions.

 There are plenty of products that are available to clean surfaces and counter-tops and for the most part they are all good.   Thankfully now, many “natural” products are available that are as good as or better than some leading brands.   Keeping surfaces clean regularly and also immediately after use is always an important and easy way to reduce odor build-up in the first place.   But, no matter how diligent you are, there are specific problem areas that you need to address.

Refrigerator- You would be surprised to learn how much a smelly refrigerator can lead to a smelly kitchen, not to mention having your strawberries taste like onions and your ham like fish.   It’s of course important to keep your refrigerator clean from spills but to actually eliminate lingering odors, go for the power of activated carbon in a product like Fridge It activated carbon odor absorbers.   The natural, fragrance free activated carbon filter literally soaks up odors better than baking soda, coffee, and vinegar combined.   All you have to do is hang or place one on each shelf for incredible effectiveness.  Also Fridge It can be used with great results in your freezer too if your ice is tasting or smelling off.

 Garbage/Trash area – The smell of garbage can quickly permeate the entire house.   To eliminate this problem, again use the power of activated carbon.  Fridge It odor absorbers easily clip on to, or hang from trash cans.  Just keep a couple near by your trash can and odors get stopped in their tracks.

 Garbage Disposal –  There are several ways to keep odors away here.  Pouring baking soda down the drain with water helps but another product that does a nice job is Plink Disposal Cleaner.   The unique little balls break open to deodorize the disposal and dissolve some of the oil and fat build ups that are causing the smell.

 Stove Top Vent – As grease and oils build up, so will odors.   Use a natural lemon or orange based degreaser to wipe away build ups.  These products effectively cut through grease so you can easily wipe it away and leaves no residue.   There are several effective and natural cleaners available for this.

 Cabinets – Cabinets are another unsuspecting source of kitchen odor as they store food, oil, damp dashes and glasses and other assorted kitchen items.    A great way to eliminate this as a cause for kitchen odors is to place a FRIDGE IT odor absorber in each cabinet, getting rid of the odor at the source.

 Under Sink – Another area that is a culprit for odors resulting from moisture, trash and storage is definitely under the sink.   This is another great place for hanging or placing a couple of FRIDGE IT activated carbon odor absorbers.  It’s that easy.

 So, the bottom line is keep your kitchen surfaces and floors clean but use activated carbon odor absorbers like FRIDGE IT for targeted areas and natural greaser’s and deodorizes for garbage disposals and hood vents.

How many odor absorbers do I need to use?

 The stronger the smell the more odor absorbers you are going to need. Take my refrigerator, it is large, but I like it smelling odor free.  That closed small space takes 4 Fridge It odor absorber cubes www.fridgeit.com  to do the job the way I like it.  My freezer takes 2, one for ice and one for the freezer. I like the wafer version for that, since it takes up less space. 

I cook a lot of food with strong odors, so that is why need more and want a clean smelling refrigerator.  One or two will do fine if the food does not have a strong smell.

My office, I like a clean fresh smell, like outdoors on a clear day.  That is 6 to 8 Fridge Its.  I stack them up in a big tower and it makes such a difference in my air quality and room smells fresher.  One or two again will do the job, I just liked the smell being so much fresher when I added more.  Try it, it has really made a difference.

My car, since I am not a smoker it only takes one Innofresh Odor Eliminator wafer www.innofresh.com . My sisters car takes five charcoal odor absorbers. Her car is a mess with trash and pet smells really stay in the car with her.



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.
