Survey says – Office breakroom refrigerators and trash cans are among worst smells

Breakroom Refrigerators Need FRIDGE IT

Breakroom Refrigerators Need FRIDGE IT

The office breakroom.  Now, that’s a study in human behavior.  I have to say that at least our breakroom at Innofresh has the best smelling, cleanest refrigerator and odor free trash and sink area.   Of course, when you have a great supply of FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor eliminators always on hand, it sure helps.

How about you?  Do you have an office breakroom that can use some, ah hem, “help” ?   Write to us and include a  photo of your breakroom fridge and tell us about it.  You might just end up with a couple of free FRIDGE IT odor absorbers. Send your story and photos to customerservice@innofresh.com or leave with comment with photo on this blog.

Have you opened the refrigerator or freezer and almost passed out from the odor coming from inside?  You know that pungent smell coming from someones leftover lunch from 3 weeks ago.   Breakroom refrigerators and how to eliminate refrigerator odor is one of our top search terms as well as questions about how to get rid of bad odors from breakroom trash and sink areas.
We’ve all been there.  You reach for your lunch sandwich in the office refrigerator, only to be met with the worse smell from decomposing food.  To make matters worse, someone already took your sandwich, right!

In 2009, you may have read about the refrigerator odor problem at the AT&T building in San Jose, California.   This is a true story.  It seems that the office refrigerator was so noxious from food smells,  that when an employee took it upon herself to clean it out along with using some chemical cleaners, it sent several of her co-workers to the hospital and prompted the evacuation of 325 people from the building.    It turned out that a combination of the odor and using the wrong cleaner sent noxious fumes through the air.

Now, hopefully your office refrigerator isn’t quite that bad.    To avoid the bad smells and noxious odors coming from an over crowded and neglected refrigerator, here are a couple of steps.

Step 1.  Assign someone responsible for posting a sign on the refrigerator that says something like “Every Friday, this refrigerator will be cleaned out so if you don’t throw it out, we will”. Then, on Friday’s before closing up for the weekend, that person would be responsible for throwing out anything left in the fridge that could potentially start smelling.

Step 2.  I know this sounds like a sales pitch, but make sure you put a couple  of the FRIDGE IT ®Cubes in the fridge.  This will take care of any lingering odor in the refrigerator.  Also, place one or two units under the sink, near the trash to keep the the entire breakroom smelling fresh and clean again.   The refrigerator that smelled terrible will now be a joy to open and use.   It might even inspire employees to help keep the fridge clean.

You don’t have to take my word for it.   FRIDGE IT  “absolutely does work” as seen on NBC’s KAMR Does It Work Segment. FRIDGE IT odor absorber performed so well in eliminating refrigerator odor that they gave it their highest rating. Click on this link to see the 2 minute spot on YouTube KAMR DOES IT WORK.
FRIDGE IT has a ventilated, activated carbon filter that is amazing and is the ec0-friendly choice for even the worst odors in refrigerators and freezers.   Completely fragrance free and chemical free, the activated charcoal absorbs and eliminates the odor for good.   By eliminating odors, this also reduces cross contamination of smells in your refrigerator so your sandwich won’t taste like your co-workers french onion salad.      Tested against baking soda, activated charcoal is the clear winner for eliminating odors in refrigerators.

Not only is FRIDGE IT great for the refrigerator and freezer, but you can use the power of our advanced activated charcoal filter in so many other areas around the office and home including under sinks, near trash and garbage areas, closets, cabinets, storage, pantry, garage and even smelly dorm rooms.    FRIDGE IT works so well that it is even the fragrance free choice for dead mouse odors behind walls.     FRIDGE IT and Innofresh odor absorbers don’t mask and cover up odors – they eliminate odors for good.

What really are odors and how to eliminate them

What causes odor

What Causes Odor

What are common household odors and how does our sense of  smell work?  What is an odor eliminator compared with an air freshener?

Our readers ask these questions all the time. I’ve tried to provide answers with links for more information on how to eliminate odors, difference between regular charcoal and activated charcoal and some other tips on absorbing smells and eliminating odors. 

Here is the simple definition of odor from Wikipedia – “An odor or odour is caused by one or more volatile chemical compounds.  Odors are also smells, which can refer to both pleasant and unpleasant odors.  The terms fragrance, scent and aroma are used primarily by industry to describe a pleasant odor while terms such as malodorous, stench, reek and stink are used to describe unpleasant odors”

The largest group of household odors consist of organic compounds, although some inorganic substances such as ammonia are considered odorants.    For humans to smell  something, molecules from that item need direct contact with your nose.  Everything that you smell gives off molecules whether the odor is pleasant or unpleasant.   Typically, these molecules are very light and volatile, meaning that the odor molecules can evaporate easily and also can travel or float through the air to your nose.

Inside your nasel passages are special neurons with hair like projections called cilia.  When an odor molecule comes in contact with these cilia, this binding triggers the neuron in a way that sends a message to your brain which you then perceive as a smell.  

How can you safely and effectively eliminate odors?
There are different ways in which you can deal with household odors.   One way involves covering up or masking the odor with yet, a stronger odor.  This treatment is most common with scented air fresheners, plug-ins, gels and sprays. However the underlying odor will still be present.    Other products are designed to actually neutralize and eliminate the odor. Common products include baking soda and activated charcoal.  Another advantage of these odor eliminators are that they are fragrance free and also great for people with chemical sensitivities and allegic reactions to some fragrances.     Baking soda can be effective in eliminating some odors, particularly those smells that are “acidic”.   Activated charcoal (often called activated carbon) on the other hand has the ability to neutralize a wider range of odors and it’s unique microscopic configuration allows for a very large capacity to absorb a great volume of odor molecules.

Activated Charcoal beats baking soda in eliminating refrigerator and freezer odors

Baking Soda

Baking Soda

 
Activated Charcoal really does beat baking soda to eliminate odors in refrigerators and freezers.

FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorber

FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorber

First, let’s clear up the difference between baking soda and baking powder.   We get this question a lot.  Both of these products are leavening agents and often used in baking.   Baking powder actually contains baking soda and also contains other ingredients including cream of tartar and cornstarch.    Baking soda, on the other hand typically is used when a recipe contains a high acid ingredient such as yogurt that requires neutralizing.  Baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate helps regulate pH balance.    It is generally not recommended to substitute baking soda for baking powder in a recipe.

Traditionally, baking soda has also been used as an odor absorber in refrigerators.   If you’re still using baking soda for this, you may be interested to learn that activated charcoal actually beats baking soda in eliminating refrigerator and freezer odors.  FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorbers are the ideal new way to effectively eliminate a much wider range of odors in your refrigerator and works just as effectively in freezers too.      For more information on activated charcoal, also known as activated carbon,  just click on this link – activated charcoal.

Watch The Food Network TV segment.   FRIDGE IT activated charcoal is an extremely effective, fragrance free odor eliminator.  Recently, FRIDGE IT was shown on an episode of the Food Networks “Food Detectives” segment titled “does baking soda do anything for your refrigerator to smell clean”  . The Food Network brings you some of the other great shows like Iron Chef.  Click on this link to view this fun episode comparing Baking soda and Activated Charcoal.    At the end of this informative segment, Ted Allen shows our very own FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorber.   Our popular little purple cube is the original FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorber that you’ve probably seen at many retailers and on line.   This TV segment demonstrates nicely that, while baking soda does eliminate some odors; activated charcoal is much more effective in really eliminating the tough refrigerator odors caused by food in your refrigerator.    It’s also important to know the difference between regular charoal and activated charcoal.   Please read our blog entry on that subject as well.

FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorbers really work well and can effectively eliminate refrigerator and freezer odors and reduce cross contamination of food odors.  No more fruit smelling like fish and cheese smelling like onions.     FRIDGE IT is completely fragrance free, non-toxic and so easy to use.   Just place or hang on refrigerator shelf and forget about it.   The patented ventilated activated charcoal starts working immediately.      

Did you also know that FRIDGE IT is extremely popular as an effective odor eliminator for most other areas around your home, garage, work and even pets.   Traps and neutralizes odors in areas including under sinks, near trash and garbage areas, cabinets, drawers, closets, storage, diaper pails, garage and even smelly dorm rooms and office work areas.   No more worry about lingering odors and no worry about fragranced sprays that can irritate allergies, messy powders, plug-ins or gels.    Just place FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor absorbers near the problem area and eliminate the odors safely and effectively.
