Where did Spring Cleaning come from? Tips for Spring Cleaning and Household Solutions

 

Photo - Spring Cleaning SPRING CLEANING – So, where did that idea come from?

  On SALE – visit us at www.innofresh for sale and free ship deals.

 From the very early days, several ethnic groups and faith traditions adopted Springtime rituals of cleaning, before or after celebrating holidays, that may have evolved over time into what we now call “Spring Cleaning”.    In times past, particularly in cold climates, people kept their houses closed throughout the cold months and heated their homes with coal, oil and wood.  The coming of Spring was the time to make a musty home, fresh and clean again.  The arrival of Spring was a time to throw open windows and doors and allow fresh air into the home and to clean the yuck that was built up in mattresses, rugs, drapes, etc., removing soot and ash that had built up over the winter months.   Even mattresses, that were made of straw or other natural materials, would typically wait until Spring to replace the old filling with fresh dry hay.

Home Solutions – Top Pick for fighting tough fridge and freezer odors and keeping ice tasting good

 Photos - Real Simple 1RReal Simple magazine offers advise from energizing your life, ultimate guides, gifts, clothing advise and home solutions.   Real Simple offers the solution – “Speed Clean Your Freezer In 20 Minutes”.  In an earlier article, they featured FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorbers from Innofresh as a “secret weapon and top pick” for getting the job done.   “Fridge IT cube fights tough odors (and keeps ice from tasting funky) for up to six months”.

Thank you to Real Simple magazine for sharing these tips as well as so many other great features and articles.    For more information about Fridge IT, Innofresh Products and our line of special ventilated, activated charcoal odor eliminators, please visit us at our website at www.innofresh.com.

Fridge IT activated charcoal odor eliminators also works equally amazingly all around the house including closets, storage, under sinks, trash areas, musty cabinets, stinky diaper pails, dorm rooms and so much more.   The secret is in our special  high grade activated carbon that we use and our advanced porous process.  Beats baking soda!

Is there a difference between regular charcoal and activated charcoal for odors?

We are often asked about the difference between regular charcoal and activated charcoal –  “Does activated charcoal (or activated carbon) really work better than regular charcoal briquettes used on the barbeque grill to absorb and eliminate odors?”.

The answer is a big YES.   And even 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 for a more detailed description of activated charcoal at this link –   http://www.innofresh.com/activated-carbon/

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.
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.

The Best Way to Remove Odors from Refrigerator and Freezer

Tips on how to eliminate even the toughest odors from your refrigerator.  When should you use Activated Charcoal instead of baking soda?


A common question that we get all the time is “Does baking soda really work to get rid of smelly refrigerator odor”.   Well, our answer is yes and no.   Here’s why.    Baking soda doesn’t really eliminate odors all that well.  An open box of baking soda in your refrigerator will absorb some odors, especially if the odors in your refrigerator are “acidic”.  The alkaline baking soda can absorb many of these odors.  But, even then, as the powder in the box contacts water vapor, it tends to cake over and lose most of its effectiveness.

 

So, the bottom line is that baking soda does work for some odors and for a limited time can be reasonably effective.  However, if you are looking for the better odor absorber, activated charcoal wins hands down.   The fact is that activated charcoal or activated carbon is an incredible odor absorber and we recommend it, particularly if the odors are particularly bad and for odors that are not “acidic”.     Activated carbon is the natural material that is used in water treatment facilities and even in the medical field for its ability to absorb contaminents.    The natural material “carbon” is treated in a process that produces a highly porous material which “activates” it so that it can absorb an incredible amount of odors and contaminants.

Fridge IT and Innofresh activated carbon odor absorbers provide superior and long-lasting odor elimination for the toughest odors.   Our micro-vac technology produces a highly absorbent natural odor eliminator with ventilated activated charcoal.   Save money and time with this 21st century solution to eliminating odors – whether in your refrigerator, freezer or other musty, smelly areas in your home, pet areas, car, dorm, basement and much more.

Guide To Cleaning Your Refrigerator and How To Eliminate Refrigerator and Freezer Odor For Good.

How to Eliminate Refrigerator and Freezer Odor For Good

 

Most people don’t know this but November 15 is actually a holiday – It’s National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. No kidding.   If you want to learn more about this holiday, click on this link to another post of mine that explains the history of this curious day  National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day.   PLUS, look for great 20% savingsclick here.
Well in honor of this special day, I thought it would be appropriate to reprint a quick and easy guide to cleaning out your refrigerator plus tips on how to eliminate refrigerator and freezer odor for good.   I found the attached guide simple and easy to follow, reprinted with permission from LoriW – special thank you to LoriW.

Guide to How to Eliminate Refrigerator and Freezer Odor For Good.

Reprinted with permission from LoriW.
Everyone I know seems to have a problem with refrigerator and freezer odor. It’s a big problem that can cause major cross food contamination, faster food spoilage and bad tasting and smelling ice as well. With this short guide, you will eliminate refrigerator odor and freezer odor for good. Here is the important part – “safely” – without harmful chemicals and fragrances.

It’s not the cleaners but how you clean that is the key.
This will save you time and money in the long run and keep your refrigerator odor free for good. All you need is three things. It’s been my secret for years (along with dozens of friends).

Difficulty Level: Easy

Instructions

Things You’ll Need:

  • Liquid antibacterial dish soap
  • Paper towels
  • Activated carbon product

1

Typical Refrigerator over stocked.

Typical Refrigerator over stocked.

1. The first step is probably the hardest. Need to remove ALL your items from the refrigerator. This is not a necessary step for your freezer unless you had a defrost problem. If so, then, remove freezer items as well.
This process won’t take long, so no worry about food spoilage if you stay on task. Be sure to actually discard all items that should be thrown out at this point, especially if they already smell like something other than what it is. ie. cheese smelling like onion. For those products, it is too late. My personal goal is 10% – 20% of the items should be tossed because they are just expired.

2. Now, time for a little (really only little) elbow grease. Using paper towels and some water along with just a little antibacterial dish soap, start at the top of refrigerator (inside ceiling) and start working your way down making sure to wipe down the sides and each shelf along the way. After each section is completely cleaned, wipe with dry paper towel to get rid of any moisture.
If your refrigerator has racks instead of shelves, wipe the racks down or better yet, remove from refrigerator and wipe down over sink.
I find that the antibacterial soap is mild and works great. No need for harmful bleaches or other chemicals.
An area that many people forget about is around the door and bins AND inside the bins. These are really important since often liquid drips down into these and can really begin to smell after awhile. Just wipe with soap and water all around the rubber seals.
Check the door hinges as well. These often are a great hiding place for spilled things. You may need to use an old toothbrush to get into those places. Time to put everything back now. Don’t forget the 10% rule.

Now, the freezer. Unless you’ve had a problem with defrosting, I find that just concentrating on the ice bin now takes care of most problems. Time to empty out the old ice which may have taken on some of the “old” smell. With ice bin empty, just wipe down with plain water (no soap) and dry before placing back into freezer.

  1. 4

    Last step.
    Your refrigerator is clean. Now, to keep it smelling clean and as fresh as possible while protecting food smell cross contamination, the only product I recommend that works the absolute best is made with activated carbon. The brand that I’ve used for years and recommend to all my friends is a little purple cube called FRIDGE IT activated carbon odor absorber. They are so convenient to use and I believe actually saves me time and money since I’m not throwing out as much, refrigerator never smells and these odor absorbers last for a long time.
    I just place one on each shelf and one in each bin in the refrigerator. I also keep one in my freezer near ice bin.
    So, that’s it. No chemicals, no fragrances, no messy baking soda.

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.

This actually can work for some lesser odors but not really effective for tough refrigerator odor problems, plus it’s messy.  The carbon in the ink actually help soak up the odor.While some posts also included old fashioned baking soda and even coffee grinds, “Sarahview”, “Bettee201” and “Tayloron” posted raving reviews for FRIDGE IT fragrance free activated charcoal odor absorbers. The last time we looked, there were 26 posts with over 5500 views.  Wow.  We wonder if this is a record for the Rachael Ray message board.  Either way, it tells us how many readers are really interested in finding a better odor eliminator for getting rid of nasty refrigerator smells and even bad tasting or smelling ice.      Click on this link at Rachael Ray message board and join in on the discussion.  We would love to hear your thoughts.  If you log in to her site and leave a message on this post, it keeps the discussion on the top of the list.  Please help by leaving comments on that post.
