History of Coupons and Special Family and Friends Offer

Companies have been using coupons to help market and promote their products for over 100 years.  But, how did the use of cents off  coupons actually start?

The term “coupon” was derived from the french word “couper” meaning “to cut”.   In 1894, Atlanta businessman and co-owner of a small  beverage company called Coca-Cola , Asa Candler made an  innovative decision when he created the first coupon by using handwritten  tickets as coupons for a free glass of Coca-Cola to help market this new soft drink.  His company employees distributed the coupons as well  as placed in magazines.   To offset the cost to fountain shops, the company gave away free syrup to cover the costs of the free drinks.    It is estimated that over the next 20 years, 1 in 9 Americans have received a free Coca-Cola.

Shortly after Coca-Cola introduced it’s coupon idea, a grocer named C.W. Post began using coupons to help sell groceries.  His coupon gave customers a one cent discount on his latest cereal – Grape Nuts.

My, have times changed.   Coupons are so much part of our life and shopping culture now, in addition to traditional media outlets such as newspapers and magazines, coupons are now available downloaded from the internet and are referred to by such names as discount codes, promotion codes, shopping codes, source codes and a variety of other terms.

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

Activated Charcoal Filters – Natural, fragrance free air freshener for cars, trucks and R.V.’s

I should first explain what Las Vegas has to do with this blog on how to eliminate smoke, pet and food odors in your car.  I received a photo with a note from a reader.  As the note read…. “On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I took advantage of the very convenient Las Vegas taxi service.   It wasn’t my first trip, so I expected perhaps a lingering odor coming from the last passengers cigarette smoke or some combination of spilled beer and I don’t know what….”   “Or, even worse, a combination of these odors with an overpowering scented air freshener – for a delivery of fruity smoke and beer smell!”

“To my surprise and delight, when I got in the back seat and settled in, there was no bad smells, no indication of previous smokers or lingering odor from last nights late night party and no scented air freshener hanging from the rear view mirror’.   Instead there it was – a Fridge IT.     ” The cab driver had two in the car.  This one in the back and another up front.”   Wow, what are the chances, I say.    Great story and I wanted to share it.     This cabby discovered a better way to eliminate odors – with unscented, 100% fragrance free FRIDGE IT.

Many of our readers in fact do use FRIDGE IT for inside the car and it works great.   We also developed an activated charcoal odor eliminator just for this use as well. It’s called Innofresh AUTO odor eliminator. You get the power of activated charcoal that traps and neutralizes odors, but also the convenient size and built in clip on feature on the back.    Either way, you won’t go wrong.   Both products utilize our VAC technology – a porous ventilated activated carbon filter that absorbs even the toughest odors that you might even find in taxi’s.    (Hey, nothing against taxi’s, but some of these could use a bit more freshening with fragrance free activated charcoal).

Now, you can find Innofresh AUTO odor eliminators conveniently on line at http://www.innofresh.com  or just click on the link directly to Innofresh AUTO.

“Thank you for a wonderful product.  Prior to ordering your product, I tried placing charcoal, coffee grinds, white vinegar (at separate times) and the smell of cigarette smoke was not subsiding or leaving my car.  I went to the extent of even having the car detailed and the smell got worse because the chemicals they use.   Nothing was working. …..Your product did it. I placed it inside my car and in the trunk and after 2 days the smell started subsiding until now, is all gone.   So, thank you for a wonderful product”

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.
