Regular Charcoal vs. Activated Charcoal as an odor eliminator

Mark Twain

Why use activated charcoal?  Our readers and customers ask “does regular charcoal work as an odor eliminator?”   I’d like to share some additional information on this topic of Activated Carbon or Activated Charcoal and explain why this material is such an effective odor eliminator for a wide range of odors including cigarette smoke, moisture odor, food, pet, footwear and so many other musty household odors.

For even more detailed information about how activated charcoal works, link here activated charcoal –  another blog entry where I talk about the difference between charcoal and activated charcoal (used interchangable with activated carbon).     We hope that it helps our readers understand the powerful difference and safety issues between ordinary charcoal used for grilling and specialized activated charcoal that is manufactured as an extemely effective fragrance free odor eliminator.  Keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and use activated charcoal for eliminating odors.  Did you know that activated charcoal is even more effective in eliminating refrigerator and freezer odor than baking soda.

So, why the photo of Mark Twain above?   Here is where Mark Twain comes in to explain the difference between charcoal and activated charcoal.
“The difference between the “right” word and the “almost right” word is the difference between “lightning” and “lightning bug”  
– Mark Twain

In other words,  when it comes to eliminating odors,  make sure you look for the important word “activated”.  You’ll find this term “activated” in all Innofresh and FRIDGE IT odor absorbers to describe our “VAT” technology – Ventilated activated charcoal.  It’s what makes the difference.    For safer and more effective activated charcoal odor eliminators,  look for the original FRIDGE IT  and Innofresh brands.  Visit our web site to learn more about our products and also for fast and easy on line shopping  www.innofresh.com

Review – Fridge IT activated charcoal knocks out refrigerator odor

Audrey, author of her blog Audrey’s Giveaway Blog puts FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorbers through some pretty tough refrigerator odor tests and the winner is FRIDGE IT!

 Audrey says “We grow our own onions in the garden & they tend to be stronger than the onions you buy at the grocery store. As luck would have it, the day before the Fridge-It Activated Charcoal Odor Absorbers arrived, I had cut up an onion and only used 1/2 of it. The unused 1/2 went into a ziplock bag and into my “onion drower” in the fridge. My whole fridge smelled like onions! It was quite strong. This would be a good test for the Fridge ITcubes. I placed on on a shelf in the door & one in the onion drawer. After about 6 hours, when it was time to make supper, I opened the fridge for the first time since adding the cubes. I was pleasantly surprised to have no smell in the fridge! The Fridge IT worked amazingly well on getting rid of the onion smell as well as any other smells that were in there. ”   “These are definitely products I would recommend to anyone with a fridge or garbage can! You can purchase these online at InnoFresh.com. ”

Discover what Audrey found – Fridge It, fragrance free, activated charcoal odor absorbers beats baking soda and  eliminates the toughest odors in refrigerators, freezers, cabinets, drawers, under sinks, near trash, stale kitchen odors and so many other areas around the home.  Easy to use !

What really are odors and how to eliminate them

What causes odor

What Causes Odor

What are common household odors and how does our sense of  smell work?  What is an odor eliminator compared with an air freshener?

Our readers ask these questions all the time. I’ve tried to provide answers with links for more information on how to eliminate odors, difference between regular charcoal and activated charcoal and some other tips on absorbing smells and eliminating odors. 

Here is the simple definition of odor from Wikipedia – “An odor or odour is caused by one or more volatile chemical compounds.  Odors are also smells, which can refer to both pleasant and unpleasant odors.  The terms fragrance, scent and aroma are used primarily by industry to describe a pleasant odor while terms such as malodorous, stench, reek and stink are used to describe unpleasant odors”

The largest group of household odors consist of organic compounds, although some inorganic substances such as ammonia are considered odorants.    For humans to smell  something, molecules from that item need direct contact with your nose.  Everything that you smell gives off molecules whether the odor is pleasant or unpleasant.   Typically, these molecules are very light and volatile, meaning that the odor molecules can evaporate easily and also can travel or float through the air to your nose.

Inside your nasel passages are special neurons with hair like projections called cilia.  When an odor molecule comes in contact with these cilia, this binding triggers the neuron in a way that sends a message to your brain which you then perceive as a smell.  

How can you safely and effectively eliminate odors?
There are different ways in which you can deal with household odors.   One way involves covering up or masking the odor with yet, a stronger odor.  This treatment is most common with scented air fresheners, plug-ins, gels and sprays. However the underlying odor will still be present.    Other products are designed to actually neutralize and eliminate the odor. Common products include baking soda and activated charcoal.  Another advantage of these odor eliminators are that they are fragrance free and also great for people with chemical sensitivities and allegic reactions to some fragrances.     Baking soda can be effective in eliminating some odors, particularly those smells that are “acidic”.   Activated charcoal (often called activated carbon) on the other hand has the ability to neutralize a wider range of odors and it’s unique microscopic configuration allows for a very large capacity to absorb a great volume of odor molecules.

In her product review, The Penny Pinching Mama tells of an odor problem with her really bad smelling refrigerator.  Especially after the Holidays, she needed some extra help and, like so many other readers, baking soda just wasn’t working to control the refrigerator smell. So, she gave FRIDGE IT  cube activated charcoal odor absorbers a try and “noticed a dramatic difference within hours”.   “The Fridge IT odor absorber” is even powerful enough to remove dead mouse odors from behind walls and received accolades from The Food Network and NBC”

That’s not all.  Same story with her kitty litter box.  After using Innofresh PET odor eliminators on her large litter box, it “smelled SO much better the next day”.
