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.

Secret of Activated Charcoal and Activated Carbon for Odor Elimination and Removal

Photo - charcoal1
Innofresh Activated Charcoal Products is a leading supplier of U.S. manufactured activated charcoal odor absorbers for the consumer and commercial markets.  Since 1992, we have provided superior activated charcoal odor absorbers for home, work, dorm, pet areas and automobiles and outdoor recreation from musty odors in cabinets and closets to power outage problems in refrigerators and freezers.   Our activated charcoal with VAC technology provides effective odor removal and elimination even from the toughest odor causing environments including outgassing, dead rodent odors, diaper pails, musty basements, college dorm rooms and office break rooms.  


Here are some of the more frequently asked questions about Activated Charcoal:

Photo activated carbon 2What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is a highly porous, natural material that attracts and removes organic chemicals and gas from the environment.  It is manufactured by burning various carbon materials, such as wood, coconut shells and other organic material in a specialized oxidation – oxygen free process that results in literally, millions of microscopic pores and cracks inside the carbon that provides an enormous amount of interior and exterior surface area in which odor molecules are attracted to and neutralized.

What is the difference between Activated Charcoal and Activated Carbon?
Actually, there is not any difference.  Both of these terms can be used interchangeably and are synonymous with each other.

What can Activated Charcoal remove?
Activated charcoal is used in many fields including water treatment and medical devices to eliminate various organic pollutants from the water and the air including some toxic chemicals including VOC’s such as benzene and some other oils.   At Innofresh, we use this amazing material to create superior carbon filters for elimination of household, pet and car odors including smoke, food, animal, musty and other unwanted odors.  For additional information about Innofresh Activated Charcoal, click on this link to our website page – What is Activated Charcoal?

Is there a difference between regular charcoal briquettes used for barbeque grills and activated charcoal for odor elimination?
The answer to this is a big “YES”.  And, even more importantly is the safety of not using ordinary barbeque charcoal for odor control.  Activated charcoal or activated carbon goes through an extensive process which significantly increases the microscopic pores that attract and eliminate odors.  To explain it further, not all activated charcoal is the same and this makes a difference in performance.  Our activated charcoal filters are made from high quality materials and undergo a porous binding process that eliminates black powder and small particles common to most activated charcoal.   
Safety – Another important distinction is that, in addition to not being “pure” or oxidized as activated charcoal, charcoal briquettes generally have other chemicals added to them to make them combust better for use in grills.   So, keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and use activated charcoal specifically made for odor elimination for a safer, more effective way to eliminate odors.

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.

Safely Eliminate Dead Mouse Odor Behind Walls and Vents

Eliminate Dead Rodent Odor

 
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.   Well, before you take a hammer to the wall or search through the vents, there is an easier solution to reducing and even eliminating the pungent odor from a dead mouse behind the wall or in a vent.  This photo might be cute but there isn’t anything funny about dealing with dead mouse odors.   It’s that season.  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.   Our popular FRIDGE IT Cube activated charcoal odor absorber is an extremely effective solution for tackling the strong odor from a dead mouse.  
 
Our customers often ask – “But, I thought that FRIDGE IT was for the refrigerator?”   Yes, that’s most certainly true.  However,  the special ventilated activated charcoal

FRIDGE IT Cube

filter that we use for FRIDGE IT is amazing in effectively absorbing a broad range of odors and has the absorption capabilities to handle even the toughest of odors including dead mouse smells.    FRIDGE IT contains a powerful filter that absorbs and neutralizes odors as they pass through the 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.    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 near the baseboards and in the general area near the wall.   Depending upon the size of the room and difficulty of the odor, we typically recommend 3 – 6 odor absorbing filters placed nearby.   They last up to 6 months and can be used elsewhere once the odor is gone.

 
  If you have problems with mice in the house, we recommend first trying to trap the critters in the open with a mouse trap or other device so that it doesn’t just end of eating poison bate and then die behind the wall.  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 you take a hammer to the wall, discover the amazing power of activated charcoal for absorbing odors.
 
You can learn more about FRIDGE IT and activated charcoal at our website – Innofresh.   We know fast ship is important.  Orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days and shipped US Postal Service PRIORITY (US domestic orders) for fast delivery.   International orders shipped regular ground US Postal Service.    All our products are proudly manufactured in the USA
