Uncover the Ease of Using OdorXit ClO2
OdorXit ClO2 uses the oxidization method
to solving odor problems. By definition OdorXit ClO2 is
a contact chemistry. IE the chlorine dioxide vapor (the active component
of OdorXit ClO2) must come in contact with the
source of the odor and the source of the odor must be prone to oxidization.
That is exactly what OdorXit ClO2 does. When
the mylar outer covering is removed, the inner pouch containing sodium
chlorite is exposed to the air and water or water vapor. This combination
converts the sodium chlorite into chlorine dioxide gas which is a strong
Using the included clear plastic self adhering pouch to mount the packet
on a wall, or cabinet or above a door, or on the side of the basement steps
works very well. If you have a ceiling fan in the area, set on slow and
blowing up. You can also us a small desk fan set on slow or low to circulate
the air in the area being treated. Do Not have the fan blowing directly
on the packet. In small areas like closets and bathrooms the fan is not
necessary and not recommended. The best placement in a closet is above
the door frame. The best bathroom placement is across the room from the
shower or tub and away from children.
Chlorine dioxide will oxidize/neutralize a wide range of
malodors including mold fungus, mold spores, tobacco smoke, fire smoke,
spoiled food, fish, animal scent spray (including cat and skunk), animal
and human excrement, bed pan, sick room, and cooking odors. OdorXit ClO2 also
kills germs that can make you sick like
Like all oxidization-based products, OdorXit ClO2 can
neutralize or oxidize a finite amount of material. This being
said, if the pouch size used is not large enough to do the job, using another
one or larger one will continue the process until it is completed. Subsequent
re-contamination as is the case with mold and bacteria, the treatment simply
must be repeated. This fact does not detract from the fact that OdorXit ClO2 is
fast acting and completely effective on a very broad range of malodors.
OdorXit ClO2 is simple to use. When you are ready
to start treating an area, remove the outer mylar packaging from the inner
Tyvek packet and place it in the plastic self-adhering pouch supplied with
the product or on a plastic plate or in a plastic cup (with a few drops
of water if the relative humidity is less than 40%). The Extended Release
version will produce gas for 20 to 30 days. The Fast Release version will
produce gas for 20 to 30 hours. In either case the same weight packet will
produce the same amount of gas. Both the Extended and Fast Release versions
require a small amount of water to work. 40% to 70% relative humidity is
ideal for this purpose. If the relative humidity is lower than 40% a few
drips of water added or damp paper towel can be placed next to or under the
packet to trigger the reaction. If the relative humidity is higher than 70%
the time the packet will be active will be less but the same amount of chlorine
dioxide will will be produced. The packet does not work below freezing
(32 degrees F or, 0 degrees C ).
Keep OdorXit Products and all odor control products away from small children
and pets. As safe as OdorXit Products are, they are serious odor control
products, not toys. OdorXit Products should be treated with respect and used
When using OdorXit ClO2 Slow Release, it is not necessary to
vacate the area being treated if the packet being used is the proper size.
If a heavy chlorine bleach odor developes leave the treated area or remove
the ClO2 packet for a few hours. This situation can occur if the packet is
too large for the area being treated or too much water was added to packet.
