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.

National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day is November 15. Save on FRIDGE IT Activated Charcoal Odor Absorbers.

It’s True – There is a “National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day” and it is on November 15  – To honor such an important day, we are offering special SAVINGS on all Activated Charcoal Odor Absorbers at www.innofresh.com

photo refrigeratorOn the lighter side…..Yes, there really is such a day.  Perhaps the best way to get motivated to do something is to declare a national holiday of sorts.  Well,  now there is no excuse – it’s time to clean out the refrigerator and finally throw out the unidentified food objects “UFO’s” in the back of the  refrigerator or hidden in one of the produce bins.   After all, it’s National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day on Nov 15th…for real!   So, clean out  your  refrigerator and  eliminate that dreadful refrigerator and freezer odor that you put up with every time you open the fridge.

How This National Holiday Got Started?

It’s difficult to say exactly how this day got started, but some references suggest that it started back around 1995, with a special Whirlpool promotion.   Initially,  Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day seems to have started as the 3rd Wednesday in November, however as general awareness and momentum gained around this idea, November 15th seems to have stuck.    Even Emiril (the famous Chef) wrote several years ago,  “I just learned that November 15 is National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day”.   So, indeed November 15th has become the official date – perfect timing for right before the holidays.    It makes sense that everyone should start the holidays with a clean and fresh smelling refrigerator.
Whatever the reason, your refrigerator could probably use a good cleaning.   If you haven’t kept up with your fridge, go ahead and put on that Hazmat suit and shelf by shelf, sticky and smelly drawers, go for it.

Inspired?
We would love to hear from you.  Share your fridge clean-out and odor elimination stories and photos and upload it to “comments” on this posting or on our facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Innofresh?ref=hl
What do we see as the worst smelling refrigerators?  Well, dorm rooms and break rooms are often the worst, so we expect again, to see some of those.  Some past photos are pretty crazy. Here’s a fun clip from NBC affiliate KAMR with a segment called  “Does It Work” showing a particularly bad smelling refrigerator and how they solved the problem fast and easy with FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorbers.

It’s really a good time to tackle this chore.  You’ll need the extra room in your fridge anyway for the holidays and the last thing you want to worry about is the odor from the refrigerator or freezer, including bad tasting ice.   While you’re at it, make sure you finish the job by placing a couple of FRIDGE IT odor absorbers in the fridge to maintain a fresh and clean smelling refrigerator.  It’s much better than baking soda. And, for another food saving tip -don’t forget to check the temperature in your refrigerator.

Lighter Side of Blood Supermoon – Vampires, Garlic and Activated Charcoal

Photo - Moon 2 SUPERMOON TONIGHT

The largest full moon of 2015, called “supermoon” will light up the sky this Sunday, September 27.  At approx. 8:00 AM EDT, the moon will arrive at “perigee” which is the point in its orbit bringing it closest to Earth.   The full moon can appear as much as 14% larger in the sky.  This total lunar eclipse will spawn a rare and dramatic “supermoon”.

Supermoons occur when the moon reaches its full phase at or near the satellite’s closest approach to Earth, and appears abnormally large and bright as a result. The Sept. 27 event is quite special; the last supermoon eclipse occurred in 1982, and the next won’t take place until 2033

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE….

So, what does this mean for all those concerned about werewolves and vampires?  There are lots of stories, myths and legends surrounding a full moon including stories of Vampires.  Vampires are very popular again in the movies and talked about more than ever.  So, here’s what you need to know.  If you believe that garlic keeps away vampires, you’ll have a cabinet or refrigerator full of these odoriferous cloves.   Right?  Perhaps this works and you won’t have Vampires.  But now, what do you do about the garlic odor and how did our ancestors keep the smell in control?  Charcoal, perhaps?

MORE ON THE LIGHTER SIDE….  History Behind Garlic and Vampires.

To a lot of folks out there, a full moon brings to mind lots of stories, myths and legends that surround a full moon including Vampires.    For years, cultures around the world considered garlic, not only as a food, but also garlic is said to hold medicinal properties among other uses.  As far as vampires, according to some traditions, various methods including garlic can be used to protect against vampires.   This originated back to Eastern Europe where vampires were believed to be afraid of garlic.   Perhaps this had something to do with the idea that garlic can be used to get rid of many insects and mosquito bites (and maybe vampire bites too).

More about Charcoal  –
So, if you are inclined to follow in the footsteps of legend, make sure you keep your refrigerator and cabinets odor free with activated charcoal.   FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorbers are the perfect odor eliminator for maximum odor eliminating results.

Whether there is a full moon or not, if you love garlic, make sure you keep FRIDGE IT activated carbon odor absorbers in your home too.   The activated carbon absorbs, neutralizes and eliminates even the toughest odors.   FRIDGE IT doesn’t cover up odors with fragrances but eliminates the odors for good with natural activated charcoal in a long lasting, convenient filter that you can just hang or place near any odor.

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.
