Regular Charcoal vs. Activated Charcoal as an odor eliminator

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

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.
