1. Make sure there are a few inches of space around the condensing coils.
2. Clean the coils.  Dirty coils trap heat and can cause costly repairs.
3. Check seals around the doors making sure they are clean and provide a tight fit.
4. Don’t stand in front of the fridge with the door open constantly. It’s true, you are letting out the cold air.

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.

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

Activated Carbon

Activated Carbon

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.

All our products are proudly manufactured in the USA with safety, quality and top customer support, our priorities.      Visit our web site and read our other blog entries to learn more about Innofresh Products and some other helpful tips.   Visit our on-line store to shop conveniently for our fragrance free collection of activated carbon odor absorbers.   http://shop.innofresh.com/main.sc Fast ship is important –   We strive to ship all orders within just 1 – 2 business days and with PRIORITY United States Postal Service for quick delivery  (International orders are shipped US Postal Service regular ground delivery).  Thank you for visiting Innofresh Products.

Earth Day – April 22. Tips On Being Eco-Smart. Why Is Activated Charcoal Better?

Earth Day comes once a year, but you can keep your home free from toxic chemicals, VOC’s and irritating fragrances all year.
And….what does carbon footprint really mean?
Also, a little ditty about plastic bags.

This year, we celebrate the 46th anniversary of Earth Day, an event which is recognized internationally.   Today, responsible companies and individuals are helping to build a more sustainable, greener, healthier and cleaner future.  You can find many useful websites and resources the provide valuable information on everyday things that you can do to help the environment – from tips on better recycling to reducing car idle time, turning off lights and eliminating toxic cleaning chemicals that contain volatile organic compounds.

Photo - footprintsMost people see the importance of recyling and understand the hazards of toxic chemicals both, for the environment, but also for individual health.  But, most people really do not understand what “carbon footprint” really means.  Since it is Earth Day again, here is a quick review.   An understandable definition of carbon footprint that I’ve read is “the amount of energy used by yourself, an organization, an event, or product to sustain itself”.   In other words, the total amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse emissions that are required.

This sounds reasonable, but other factors also need to be considered in this calculation.  I’ll use an example that I read about that illustrates the point with the familiar grocery plastic bag.  Apparently, China, as part of their pursuit of a greener and cleaner future, has prohibited the use of thin plastic bags in an effort to sway consumers to use reusable cloth bags.  Here’s the challenge, which is also the same for the U.S. and other countries.  A new study by the Environmental Agency of England found that the thin plastic bags actually have a smaller carbon footprint than the reusable cloth bags and even disposable paper bags.  According to their findings, you would have to reuse a cotton bag at least 131 times to equal the carbon footprint of a plastic bag (USA Today).  Furthermore, if you reuse plastic bags, say as garbage liners, the difference is even greater. The point of this short post is simply to suggest making informed decisions while acting responsibly to do your part in recycling and reducing harmful chemicals in your home and environment.  And, as far as plastic bags are concerned, I think the jury is still our on this one.

Photo activated carbon 2What about VOCs and other toxic chemicals?  At Innofresh, our fragrance free and allergen free odor eliminators and air fresheners are made with natural activated charcoal, giving consumers a safer alternative to many of the toxic scented air fresheners.  Our activated carbon odor absorbers are eco-friendly because these activated charcoal products do not contain any toxic VOC’s – volatile organic compounds or any other harmful chemicals.

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.

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/
