April Means Spring Cleaning and Earth Day

  Earth Day, Carbon Footprint and Plastic Bags,  oh my….

 April 22 is Earth Day, an internationally recognized event that began over 40 years ago.  Today, individuals and responsible companies are helping to build a greener, sustainable, healthier and cleaner future.  There are many informative websites and resources that provide 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, eliminating toxic cleaning chemicals and reducing your carbon footprint.

 Most people see the importance of recyling and understand the hazards of toxic chemicals, many people really do not understand what “carbon footprint” really means.  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 required.  This sounds reasonable.  But, as I learned, other factors need to be considered in the calculation.  I’ll use an example that I read about – The familiar grocery plastic bag.  Apparently, China as part of their pursuit of a greener and cleaner future, has prohibited the use of the thin plastic bags in an effort to sway consumers to use reusable cloth bags.  Here’s the challenge.  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 ..I think the jury is still out on this one.  I recently also found myself in a conversation comparing cloth diapers to plastic diapers and use this post as an example.

At Innofresh, our fragrance free and allergen free, ventilated odor control filters are made with natural activated carbon giving consumers a safer alternative to many toxic scented air fresheners.  Our odor eliminators are eco-friendly because these activated charcoal products do not contain toxic VOC’s – volatile organic compounds or any other harmful chemicals.   For more information about Innofresh and our activated charcoal odor absorbers for home, pet, dorm and car, visit us on our website at www.innofresh.com

Safely Eliminate Dead Mouse Odor Behind Walls and Vents

Eliminate Dead Rodent Odor

 
We know from experience.   You can smell it the minute you walk into a room or open a closet where the smell is coming from.   The odor from a dead, decomposing mouse or other small rodent is enough to drive you out of the house.   Well, before you take a hammer to the wall or search through the vents, there is an easier solution to reducing and even eliminating the pungent odor from a dead mouse behind the wall or in a vent.  This photo might be cute but there isn’t anything funny about dealing with dead mouse odors.   It’s that season.  Dead mice and rats hidden behind walls, cabinets, vents and closets are among our top odor inquiries.   The good news is that we have helped many readers just like you.   There is a way to SAFELY eliminate the odor with natures best odor absorbing material – activated charcoal.  No chemicals or irritating fragrances that just mask the odor.   Our popular FRIDGE IT Cube activated charcoal odor absorber is an extremely effective solution for tackling the strong odor from a dead mouse.  
 
Our customers often ask – “But, I thought that FRIDGE IT was for the refrigerator?”   Yes, that’s most certainly true.  However,  the special ventilated activated charcoal

FRIDGE IT Cube

filter that we use for FRIDGE IT is amazing in effectively absorbing a broad range of odors and has the absorption capabilities to handle even the toughest of odors including dead mouse smells.    FRIDGE IT contains a powerful filter that absorbs and neutralizes odors as they pass through the millions of micro-pockets and pores in the activated charcoal.   The amazing property of activated charcoal is the enormous microscopic surface area that odors (gases) actually “adsorb” to, adhering to the surface of the activated charcoal.    Placing a few of these FRIDGE IT filters in the area that you feel the dead mouse is likely located will help tremendously in absorbing the smell that is lingering in the air.   For best results, place near the baseboards and in the general area near the wall.   Depending upon the size of the room and difficulty of the odor, we typically recommend 3 – 6 odor absorbing filters placed nearby.   They last up to 6 months and can be used elsewhere once the odor is gone.

 
  If you have problems with mice in the house, we recommend first trying to trap the critters in the open with a mouse trap or other device so that it doesn’t just end of eating poison bate and then die behind the wall.  Despite best efforts to trap them, the reality is they often end of simply dead behind a wall and the smell is pretty darn bad.   So, again, before you take a hammer to the wall, discover the amazing power of activated charcoal for absorbing odors.

Earth Day, Carbon Footprint and Plastic Bags oh my.

I mentioned in an earlier post that April 22 is Earth Day, an internationally recognized event that started over 40 years ago.   Today, more than ever, individuals and responsible companies are helping to build a greener, healthier and cleaner future.  There are endless, informative websites and resources that provide 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, eliminating toxic cleaning chemicals and topical for todays debate, reducing your carbon footprint.   

I’ve discovered that, while most people see the importance of recycling and understand the hazards of toxic chemicals,  many people really do not understand what “carbon footprint” really means.  An understandable definition (for me) 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 required.     This sounds reasonable.   But, as I learned, other factors need to be considered in the calculation.   I’ll use a recent example I read about. –  The familiar grocery plastic bag.     Apparently, China as part of their pursuit of a greener and cleaner future, has prohibited the use of the thin plastic bags in an effort to sway consumers to use reusable cloth bags.     Here’s the challenge.  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….I’ll be staying with these for awhile.

Survey says – Office breakroom refrigerators and trash cans are among worst smells

Breakroom Refrigerators Need FRIDGE IT

Breakroom Refrigerators Need FRIDGE IT

The office breakroom.  Now, that’s a study in human behavior.  I have to say that at least our breakroom at Innofresh has the best smelling, cleanest refrigerator and odor free trash and sink area.   Of course, when you have a great supply of FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor eliminators always on hand, it sure helps.

How about you?  Do you have an office breakroom that can use some, ah hem, “help” ?   Write to us and include a  photo of your breakroom fridge and tell us about it.  You might just end up with a couple of free FRIDGE IT odor absorbers. Send your story and photos to customerservice@innofresh.com or leave with comment with photo on this blog.

Have you opened the refrigerator or freezer and almost passed out from the odor coming from inside?  You know that pungent smell coming from someones leftover lunch from 3 weeks ago.   Breakroom refrigerators and how to eliminate refrigerator odor is one of our top search terms as well as questions about how to get rid of bad odors from breakroom trash and sink areas.
We’ve all been there.  You reach for your lunch sandwich in the office refrigerator, only to be met with the worse smell from decomposing food.  To make matters worse, someone already took your sandwich, right!

In 2009, you may have read about the refrigerator odor problem at the AT&T building in San Jose, California.   This is a true story.  It seems that the office refrigerator was so noxious from food smells,  that when an employee took it upon herself to clean it out along with using some chemical cleaners, it sent several of her co-workers to the hospital and prompted the evacuation of 325 people from the building.    It turned out that a combination of the odor and using the wrong cleaner sent noxious fumes through the air.

Now, hopefully your office refrigerator isn’t quite that bad.    To avoid the bad smells and noxious odors coming from an over crowded and neglected refrigerator, here are a couple of steps.

Step 1.  Assign someone responsible for posting a sign on the refrigerator that says something like “Every Friday, this refrigerator will be cleaned out so if you don’t throw it out, we will”. Then, on Friday’s before closing up for the weekend, that person would be responsible for throwing out anything left in the fridge that could potentially start smelling.

Step 2.  I know this sounds like a sales pitch, but make sure you put a couple  of the FRIDGE IT ®Cubes in the fridge.  This will take care of any lingering odor in the refrigerator.  Also, place one or two units under the sink, near the trash to keep the the entire breakroom smelling fresh and clean again.   The refrigerator that smelled terrible will now be a joy to open and use.   It might even inspire employees to help keep the fridge clean.

You don’t have to take my word for it.   FRIDGE IT  “absolutely does work” as seen on NBC’s KAMR Does It Work Segment. FRIDGE IT odor absorber performed so well in eliminating refrigerator odor that they gave it their highest rating. Click on this link to see the 2 minute spot on YouTube KAMR DOES IT WORK.
FRIDGE IT has a ventilated, activated carbon filter that is amazing and is the ec0-friendly choice for even the worst odors in refrigerators and freezers.   Completely fragrance free and chemical free, the activated charcoal absorbs and eliminates the odor for good.   By eliminating odors, this also reduces cross contamination of smells in your refrigerator so your sandwich won’t taste like your co-workers french onion salad.      Tested against baking soda, activated charcoal is the clear winner for eliminating odors in refrigerators.

Not only is FRIDGE IT great for the refrigerator and freezer, but you can use the power of our advanced activated charcoal filter in so many other areas around the office and home including under sinks, near trash and garbage areas, closets, cabinets, storage, pantry, garage and even smelly dorm rooms.    FRIDGE IT works so well that it is even the fragrance free choice for dead mouse odors behind walls.     FRIDGE IT and Innofresh odor absorbers don’t mask and cover up odors – they eliminate odors for good.
