Cleaning and Safety Tip: Charcoal Briquettes compared with Activated Charcoal for Odor Control

Regular Charcoal compared to Activated Charcoal for odor control….and, is it Safe?

Q & A Forum:
Here’s a question that we are often asked about how to get rid of various household odors. “Does activated charcoal (or activated carbon) really work better than regular charcoal briquettes used on the barbeque grill to absorb and eliminate odors?”

Activated Charcoal works much better but 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 to learn more about activated charcoal at this link –   http://www.innofresh.com/activated-carbon/ To explain it even further, not all activated carbon is the same and this makes a significant difference in performance.   Our Innofresh and Fridge IT activated charcoal is made from the highest quality materials such as coconut shells compared with other products that use a lesser grade of materials.   This makes a difference in the end-product.

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.

Keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and for a much more effective and safer way to eliminate odors, use activated carbon. Innofresh activated carbon with VAC technology utilizes a patented ventilated porous system to provide maximum odor absorption and elimination effectiveness.    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.

Full Moon, Vampires and Garlic

Full Moon Tonight

Full Moon Tonight

ON  THE  LIGHTER  SIDE……..

A full moon is out again and you know that there are lots of stories, myths and legends surrounding a full moon.  If you believe that garlic keeps away vampires, you’ll have a cabinet or refrigerator full of these odoriferous cloves.   But, how did our ancestors keep the smell in control?  Charcoal, perhaps?    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 for maximum odor eliminating results.

History behind garlic and vampires.
For years, cultures around the world considered garlic, not only as a food, but also garlic is said to hold some medicinal properties among other uses.   As far as vampires, according to some traditions, various methods including garlic can be used to protect against vampires originating back to Eastern Europe where vampires are believed to be afraid of garlic.      Perhaps this has 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!)

So, 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.  Fridge IT odor absorbers are available at favorite retailers and conveniently on-line with always fast delivery.   Easy on line shopping for FRIDGE IT at BuyFRIDGEIT.  or just go to this link http://www.innofresh.com/odor-elimination.html  Enjoy the benefits of garlic without the smell in your refrigerator or trash areas.       Great for all around the home including under sink odor, near garbage and trash, closets, storage, cabinets, drawers, garage, pantry, diaper pails and so many other smells and bad odors around the home.

Regular Charcoal vs. Activated Charcoal as an odor eliminator

Mark Twain

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
