Clips onto most cages

If you are a teacher in K – 12, chances are that your classroom can use a bit more clean smelling air without using irritating sprays and fragrances.  No insult; it’s just that a room full of kids all day can lead to some unwanted odors.   Nevermind, many K-6 grade rooms with little animal cages….oh la la…smells. 

Fundraiser Idea – Special side note for PTA’s – tired of selling wrapping paper and candy for fund raisers?   Everyone has a refrigerator and everyone will love a FRIDGE IT, so perhaps this year, your schools Parents Teachers Association can include selling FRIDGE IT odor absorbers as a fundraiser.  Just email us at customerservice@innofresh.com if you would like more information.

No judgement here about the personal habits of college kids, but speaking from experience, shared rooms and bathrooms during college just does not seem to bring out the best in personal grooming habits.   Shared rooms usually mean smelly rooms and bathrooms.   Other problem areas are closets, hampers, under sinks and especially those rented dorm room  mini-refrigerators.    

“ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” awhile ago, took on its popular “Made in America” series to college campuses with a challenge to use only products that are made in America to furnish dorm rooms.   Yes, it’s possible.   And, you can include FRIDGE IT odor absorbers as well.   We are proud that our products are made exclusively in America and we thank ABC World News and all our customers in supporting products that are made in America.

One of the more popular inquires we receive this time of year is from parents of college students.  “How to I get rid of the smell or odor in my sons/daughters dorm room” or more direct from the student – “My roommate is a slob and it stinks in my room”

The good news is that there is a great way to eliminate the odor – And with a product made in America.   Students and parents have discovered the amazing property of activated charcoal.   Score an “A+” for eliminating the musty, pungent and mal-odors found in dorm rooms without spending money on expensive air purifiers or irritating fragrances.

“My roommate never cleaned out his stuff from the refrigerator and it always smelled…..then I put (FRIDGE IT) in the fridge and no more odor.  Thank you”  Roger

“My sons dorm room really stinks and the smell was coming from the closet.  I sent him a care package with your product (Innofresh SPORT odor absorber) and when I last visited, it really worked” –  Karen

 FRIDGE IT ventilated activated charcoal odor absorbers are powerful enough for the toughest smelling refrigerators.  Just place a couple of these amazingly effective,  fragrance free AND allergen free, activated carbon odor eliminators in the freezer and refrigerator and eliminate the odor for good.  The activated charcoal filter will neutralize and eliminate the odor and will last up to 6 months.   Works better than baking soda and lasts longer.

 Innofresh SPORT odor eliminators also are completely fragrance free and ideal for eliminating odors in smelly closets, footwear, hampers and drawers.  Just place or clip on and let the power of activated charcoal do the rest.   Very popular among sports enthusiasts for sports equipment that can’t easily be washed and great for sport bags and gym lockers.

That Time Of The Year – How To Eliminate Dead Mouse and Rat Odors Behind Walls and Vents – Secret of Activated Charcoal

 It is that time of the year and a change in weather.  The faint scratching that you heard in the walls have gone quiet.  Instead, it has been replaced with the rather pungent, very “stinky” odor of decomposing rodents – mice or rats.   The amazing property of activated charcoal is in it’s ability to absorb (actually adsorb) a huge volume of odor in it’s millions of microscopic pores.  That’s why it’s often the preferred solution for eliminating the toughest of odors without the use of fragrances that just cover up odors.  100% fragrance free and allergen free.

So now you know the secret that the experts use.  Safely, Quickly and Effectively Eliminate Dead Rodent Odor that is hidden behind a wall or in a vent – without harmful chemicals or irritating fragrances that just cover up the odor.  BEST OF ALL – NOW ON SALE at www.innofresh.com

Another common problem with rodents this time of year is well, sorry, mouse poop.  Here’s a great article from Deadspin that addresses this problem – How Do I Clean Up All This Mouse Poop? Written by Jolie Kerr – a cleaning expert  

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.   Before you take a hammer to the wall or search through the vents, there is an easier solution to reducing and even eliminating the strong odor from a dead mouse behind the wall or in a vent.   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.  There are a number of products that claim to reduce the odor, but the best answer is to actually absorb the odor with carbon or charcoal.  Getting a spray bottle of odor reducer is not going to help when you can’t get to the dead rodent.   Placing activated charcoal odor eliminators in the area where the smell is the worst is your best choice.    Our popular FRIDGE IT Cube activated charcoal odor absorber is extremely effective in tackling the strong odor from a dead mouse.

Our customers often ask – “But, I thought that FRIDGE IT was for refrigerator, freezers and trash odors?”   That is certainly some of the uses for FRIDGE IT.  However, the special ventilated activated charcoal fliter that we use for FRIDGE IT is amazing in effectively absorbing and neutralizing a broad range of odors and has the absorption capacity to handle even the toughest of odors including dead mouse odor.   FRIDGE IT contains a powerful micro carbon filter that absorbs and neutralizes odors as they pass though 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.  Just 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 these odor absorbers near the baseboards and in the general area near the wall.  Depending upon the size of ther room and difficulty of the odor, we typically recommend 3-6 odor absorbing filters placed nearby. 

If you have problems with mice in your home, we recommend first trying to trap the mice in the open with a mouse trap or other device so that it doesn’t just end up eating the poison bate and then die behind the wall.  However, 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 taking a hammer to the wall, discover the amazing power of activated charcoal for absorbing odors.   Not just any charcoal, but the ventilated activated charcoal of FRIDGE IT.

Top 5 Essential Rules for Listening

Are you a good listener?

Whether in my personal life or in business, I’ve found that one of the most important skills to do well is “listening”.   I know this seems obvious, but it amazes me how many people just are not that good at it.   I’m not suggesting that I’ve figured it all out either, but I do make an effort every day to be attentive to this important skill and continually work on improving it.    Believe me, having spent my younger years in New York, the urge to finish someone else’s sentence does get the better part of me, but listed below are some essential rules that I use to be a better listener.   How I apply this to business is discussed after the top rules.

1. Don’t interupt.  Allow the other person to complete a thought.

2. Do not spend the time while the other person is talking to be thinking about your next thought or question.

3. Clarify what you have heard from the other person.  It’s OK to ask, “if I understood correctly, you said…”

4. If you already have decided what the other person was going to say or answer, then don’t bother asking in the first place.

5. Don’t underestimate the importance of excellent eye contact.   This personal style helps you dial in better to what others are saying.

At Innofresh Products, I make sure that everyone practices these 5 rules for better listening.   It’s more than just being polite.  I believe it significantly impacts in a very positive way, our relationships among ourselves and very importantly, with our customers.    Not only is our customer service department acutely aware of the importance of listening to our customers, but everyone at Innofresh Products is dedicated to providing the best possible experience everytime with everyone of our customers to the delight of our customers.

Listening to our customers also better allows us to respond with the best possible product solution to fit their needs.    Think about this quote “When a customer walks into a store to buy a drill, they don’t want a drill, they want a hole”. It’s our job to find out exactly what kind of hole the customer needs and how best to provide our product solution.   Other companies just talk about drills.     So, feel free to contact us and we’ll go out of our way to understand what you need so that we can provide the very best support – all the time, every time.

Innofresh Products proudly manufactures all our fragrance free activated charcoal air filters and odor eliminators in the USA.  Since 1992, Made In America!   Please visit our website at http://www.innofresh.com  to learn more about FRIDGE IT and Innofresh odor eliminators, or click here to go directly to our shopping cart – Innofreshshopping.

A Marketing Lesson Learned – The Man By The Side Of The Road Who Sold Hotdogs

Occasionally, I have the opportunity to speak to various groups about a range of business topics.   Recently, I spoke about Social Media and consumer brand Marketing, which included a strong point about going back to some of the basics.   Of course, this doesn’t mean that a  company should abandon newer initiatives that are relevant with the new tools available.  Rather, instead using the exciting, current social media avenues available,  engage the consumer by still applying some of the basics.     I’ve used a phrase that sums up what I consider “Marketing 101” and it applies to both traditional marketing and social media marketing   – “Have something good to say, say it well and say it often“.

So, you may be thinking, why the photo of the hot dog stand?  Years ago, I came across a short story titled “The Man Who Sold Hot Dogs Along The Side Of The Road”.    It was relevant then and, with a couple of small changes, is relevant today.

Many years ago, there was a man who lived by the side of the road and sold hot dogs.
He was hard of hearing so he had no radio.
He had trouble with his eyes so he read no newspaper nor watched TV.
But he sold great HOT DOGS.
He put up signs on the highway telling how good they were.
He stood on the side of the road and yelled “BUY A HOT DOG, MISTER?”
And people bought, because he was so enthusiastic.
He increased his meat and bun orders.
He bought a bigger stove to take care of his growing trade.
He was so happy selling hot dogs and people enjoyed doing business with him.
One day, his son came home from college to help him out.

And something happened.

His son said, “Father, haven’t you been listening to the radio.?  Haven’t you been reading the newspaper.?
“The economy is terrible, people are out of work, we are at war overseas”
Whereupon the father thought, “Well, my son’s been to college, he reads the newspaper, he listens to the radio and he ought to know.”
So, the father cut down on his meat and bun orders, he took down all his advertising signs, and no longer bothered to stand on the highway to sell his hot dogs.
And his hot dog sales fell, almost overnight.
“You’re right, son” the father said to the boy.    “We certainly are in the middle of a recession”

The lesson learned – Have something good to say, say if well and say it often.
