If you are a teacher in K – 12, chances are that your classroom can use a bit more clean smelling air without using irritating sprays and fragrances.  No insult; it’s just that a room full of kids all day can lead to some unwanted odors.   Nevermind, many K-6 grade rooms with little animal cages….oh la la…smells. 

Fundraiser Idea – Special side note for PTA’s – tired of selling wrapping paper and candy for fund raisers?   Everyone has a refrigerator and everyone will love a FRIDGE IT, so perhaps this year, your schools Parents Teachers Association can include selling FRIDGE IT odor absorbers as a fundraiser.  Just email us at customerservice@innofresh.com if you would like more information.

No judgement here about the personal habits of college kids, but speaking from experience, shared rooms and bathrooms during college just does not seem to bring out the best in personal grooming habits.   Shared rooms usually mean smelly rooms and bathrooms.   Other problem areas are closets, hampers, under sinks and especially those rented dorm room  mini-refrigerators.    

“ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” awhile ago, took on its popular “Made in America” series to college campuses with a challenge to use only products that are made in America to furnish dorm rooms.   Yes, it’s possible.   And, you can include FRIDGE IT odor absorbers as well.   We are proud that our products are made exclusively in America and we thank ABC World News and all our customers in supporting products that are made in America.

One of the more popular inquires we receive this time of year is from parents of college students.  “How to I get rid of the smell or odor in my sons/daughters dorm room” or more direct from the student – “My roommate is a slob and it stinks in my room”

The good news is that there is a great way to eliminate the odor – And with a product made in America.   Students and parents have discovered the amazing property of activated charcoal.   Score an “A+” for eliminating the musty, pungent and mal-odors found in dorm rooms without spending money on expensive air purifiers or irritating fragrances.

“My roommate never cleaned out his stuff from the refrigerator and it always smelled…..then I put (FRIDGE IT) in the fridge and no more odor.  Thank you”  Roger

“My sons dorm room really stinks and the smell was coming from the closet.  I sent him a care package with your product (Innofresh SPORT odor absorber) and when I last visited, it really worked” –  Karen

 FRIDGE IT ventilated activated charcoal odor absorbers are powerful enough for the toughest smelling refrigerators.  Just place a couple of these amazingly effective,  fragrance free AND allergen free, activated carbon odor eliminators in the freezer and refrigerator and eliminate the odor for good.  The activated charcoal filter will neutralize and eliminate the odor and will last up to 6 months.   Works better than baking soda and lasts longer.

 Innofresh SPORT odor eliminators also are completely fragrance free and ideal for eliminating odors in smelly closets, footwear, hampers and drawers.  Just place or clip on and let the power of activated charcoal do the rest.   Very popular among sports enthusiasts for sports equipment that can’t easily be washed and great for sport bags and gym lockers.

Secret of Activated Charcoal and Activated Carbon for Odor Elimination and Removal

Photo - charcoal1
Innofresh Activated Charcoal Products is a leading supplier of U.S. manufactured activated charcoal odor absorbers for the consumer and commercial markets.  Since 1992, we have provided superior activated charcoal odor absorbers for home, work, dorm, pet areas and automobiles and outdoor recreation from musty odors in cabinets and closets to power outage problems in refrigerators and freezers.   Our activated charcoal with VAC technology provides effective odor removal and elimination even from the toughest odor causing environments including outgassing, dead rodent odors, diaper pails, musty basements, college dorm rooms and office break rooms.  


Here are some of the more frequently asked questions about Activated Charcoal:

Photo activated carbon 2What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is a highly porous, natural material that attracts and removes organic chemicals and gas from the environment.  It is manufactured by burning various carbon materials, such as wood, coconut shells and other organic material in a specialized oxidation – oxygen free process that results in literally, millions of microscopic pores and cracks inside the carbon that provides an enormous amount of interior and exterior surface area in which odor molecules are attracted to and neutralized.

What is the difference between Activated Charcoal and Activated Carbon?
Actually, there is not any difference.  Both of these terms can be used interchangeably and are synonymous with each other.

What can Activated Charcoal remove?
Activated charcoal is used in many fields including water treatment and medical devices to eliminate various organic pollutants from the water and the air including some toxic chemicals including VOC’s such as benzene and some other oils.   At Innofresh, we use this amazing material to create superior carbon filters for elimination of household, pet and car odors including smoke, food, animal, musty and other unwanted odors.  For additional information about Innofresh Activated Charcoal, click on this link to our website page – What is Activated Charcoal?

Is there a difference between regular charcoal briquettes used for barbeque grills and activated charcoal for odor elimination?
The answer to this is a big “YES”.  And, even more importantly is the safety of not using ordinary barbeque charcoal for odor control.  Activated charcoal or activated carbon goes through an extensive process which significantly increases the microscopic pores that attract and eliminate odors.  To explain it further, not all activated charcoal is the same and this makes a difference in performance.  Our activated charcoal filters are made from high quality materials and undergo a porous binding process that eliminates black powder and small particles common to most activated charcoal.   
Safety – Another important distinction is that, in addition to not being “pure” or oxidized as activated charcoal, charcoal briquettes generally have other chemicals added to them to make them combust better for use in grills.   So, keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and use activated charcoal specifically made for odor elimination for a safer, more effective way to eliminate odors.

Cleaning and Safety Tip: Charcoal Briquettes compared with Activated Charcoal for Odor Control

Activated Carbon

Activated Carbon

Regular Charcoal compared to Activated Charcoal for odor control….and, is it Safe?

Q & A Forum:
Here’s a question that we are often asked about how to get rid of various household odors. “Does activated charcoal (or activated carbon) really work better than regular charcoal briquettes used on the barbeque grill to absorb and eliminate odors?”

Activated Charcoal works much better but more importantly is the safety of not using ordinary barbeque charcoal.  Activated carbon or activated charcoal is actually special oxidized charcoal that has gone through a pretty extensive process which significantly increases the microscopic pores that attract and absorb odors.  Click here to learn more about activated charcoal at this link –   http://www.innofresh.com/activated-carbon/ To explain it even further, not all activated carbon is the same and this makes a significant difference in performance.   Our Innofresh and Fridge IT activated charcoal is made from the highest quality materials such as coconut shells compared with other products that use a lesser grade of materials.   This makes a difference in the end-product.

Safety – This is something very important. Another distinction is that, in addition to not being as “pure” or oxidized as activated carbon, charcoal briquettes generally have other chemicals added to them to bind and make them combust better for use in grills. This is another reason we do not recommend charcoal briquettes for eliminating odors to avoid cross contamination with chemicals.

Keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and for a much more effective and safer way to eliminate odors, use activated carbon. Innofresh activated carbon with VAC technology utilizes a patented ventilated porous system to provide maximum odor absorption and elimination effectiveness.    This all adds up to superior odor control performance compared with other products.    For more information, please visit our web site at www.innofresh.com and learn more about our popular FRIDGE IT and Innofresh fragrance free activated carbon odor absorbers and how to use them effectively.

All our products are proudly manufactured in the USA with safety, quality and top customer support, our priorities.      Visit our web site and read our other blog entries to learn more about Innofresh Products and some other helpful tips.   Visit our on-line store to shop conveniently for our fragrance free collection of activated carbon odor absorbers.   http://shop.innofresh.com/main.sc Fast ship is important –   We strive to ship all orders within just 1 – 2 business days and with PRIORITY United States Postal Service for quick delivery  (International orders are shipped US Postal Service regular ground delivery).  Thank you for visiting Innofresh Products.

Earth Day – April 22. Tips On Being Eco-Smart. Why Is Activated Charcoal Better?

Earth Day comes once a year, but you can keep your home free from toxic chemicals, VOC’s and irritating fragrances all year.
And….what does carbon footprint really mean?
Also, a little ditty about plastic bags.

This year, we celebrate the 46th anniversary of Earth Day, an event which is recognized internationally.   Today, responsible companies and individuals are helping to build a more sustainable, greener, healthier and cleaner future.  You can find many useful websites and resources the provide valuable information on everyday things that you can do to help the environment – from tips on better recycling to reducing car idle time, turning off lights and eliminating toxic cleaning chemicals that contain volatile organic compounds.

Photo - footprintsMost people see the importance of recyling and understand the hazards of toxic chemicals both, for the environment, but also for individual health.  But, most people really do not understand what “carbon footprint” really means.  Since it is Earth Day again, here is a quick review.   An understandable definition of carbon footprint that I’ve read is “the amount of energy used by yourself, an organization, an event, or product to sustain itself”.   In other words, the total amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse emissions that are required.

This sounds reasonable, but other factors also need to be considered in this calculation.  I’ll use an example that I read about that illustrates the point with the familiar grocery plastic bag.  Apparently, China, as part of their pursuit of a greener and cleaner future, has prohibited the use of thin plastic bags in an effort to sway consumers to use reusable cloth bags.  Here’s the challenge, which is also the same for the U.S. and other countries.  A new study by the Environmental Agency of England found that the thin plastic bags actually have a smaller carbon footprint than the reusable cloth bags and even disposable paper bags.  According to their findings, you would have to reuse a cotton bag at least 131 times to equal the carbon footprint of a plastic bag (USA Today).  Furthermore, if you reuse plastic bags, say as garbage liners, the difference is even greater. The point of this short post is simply to suggest making informed decisions while acting responsibly to do your part in recycling and reducing harmful chemicals in your home and environment.  And, as far as plastic bags are concerned, I think the jury is still our on this one.

Photo activated carbon 2What about VOCs and other toxic chemicals?  At Innofresh, our fragrance free and allergen free odor eliminators and air fresheners are made with natural activated charcoal, giving consumers a safer alternative to many of the toxic scented air fresheners.  Our activated carbon odor absorbers are eco-friendly because these activated charcoal products do not contain any toxic VOC’s – volatile organic compounds or any other harmful chemicals.
