Camping Tents – How to Deal with Mold, Mildew and Odors

  • 07 Jun, 2017
  Camping can be a very fun activity. 
That’s especially true during this time of the year. In a world where we all constantly feel busy, there’s something very liberating about being able to disconnect and enjoy the type of simple fun that nature is so good at providing.
Whether you consider yourself a camping expert or amateur, you’re probably going to use some key pieces of gear. One example of this gear is a tent. With a quality tent, you can easily get your base set up whenever you go camping and enjoy an environment that protects you from any elements you may encounter.
Although there are a lot of good things that can be said about tents, this device isn’t without some issues. Specifically, it’s only a matter of time until you encounter things like mold, mildew or unpleasant odors in your tent. Since these problems can be very frustrating and make it seem like you’re not going to be able to enjoy your tent any more, the good news is we’re going to cover exactly what you need to know to make your tent like new again.
Combating Mold and Mildew
If you have mold or mildew in your tent, it’s important to understand that you need a way to oxidize and abate the mold. While products like OdorXit Concentrate and Magic are very powerful odor removers and have a wide range of applications, they’re not fungicides. This is why we developed a line of products that are specifically focused on oxidizing mold fungus and mold spores on contact. By using an Air Quality Manager (AQM) product from OdorXit , you’ll be able to get rid of the mold or mildew that’s growing on your tent. Since our products in this line are specifically designed to eliminate mold and mildew, you’ll also get rid of any unpleasant odors they’re creating.
Say Goodbye to All Bad Odors
Mold and mildew can definitely accumulate on the surface of a tent. However, these are just two examples of the types of substances that can cause odors in this piece of equipment. Between everything the human body produces and all the other things your tent may encounter while being out in nature, the list of odor sources can be quite long. This is where OdorXit Magic shines.
One of the reasons cleaning a tent can seem like a tricky proposition is you can’t machine wash this item. Fortunately, Odorxit Magic is even more effective than machine washing at odor removal. Simply spray this great product throughout your tent, let it air out and then enjoy camping once again in a tent that’s free of all bad odors!

The recent storms that have ravaged multiple parts of the US have caused unprecedented damage. If you or your loved ones were affected by any of these storms, our thoughts and best wishes go out to you. Because these storms were so large in scale, people have experienced everything from moderate to complete damage.


Since getting rid of bad odors is our area of expertise, we want to help anyone who lost power for an extended period of time during one of these storms but didn't face complete damage to their home and belongings. Even if you're dealing with a refrigerator that smells incredibly bad due to it being fully defrosted and having items like frozen food decompose for days or even weeks, we want to go over how you can fully restore your appliance to its former condition.


5 Steps to Saving Your Refrigerator After Losing Electricity


The first step is to remove all of the spoiled food. This can be a truly nasty and smelly experience, which is why you'll want to wear a protective mask and gloves as you do it. Once your refrigerator is clean, take it outside and spray it out with a garden hose. If you have a truck or access to one, consider taking your appliance to a car wash and use the high-powered equipment to spray it out.


The next step is to spray one ounce of OdorXit Concentrate mixed with 30 ounces of water everywhere the refrigerator smells. That means spraying the insulation behind the doors,

under and around the door gaskets, the inside, behind the drawers and every little opening where the defrosted food might have dripped. Once the OdorXit Concentrate solution comes in contact with the rotten food smells, it will remove them from your refrigerator completely and safely.


The second to last step is to let the refrigerator dry outside then bring it back in the house. Don't panic if it still smells a little. It just means there is still at least one spot that hasn't been treated yet. You'll be able to knock it out by continuing to sniff and spraying wherever you detect even a slight odor.


The final step is to remember to be a good neighbor! Spray a few shots of the OdorXit Concentrate solution in the drain at the car wash or wherever you ended up treating your appliance. Anyone who comes by after you will be very glad you did.


By following the process above, it's possible to save even the worst smelling refrigerator, which in turns means saving hundreds of dollars by not needing to buy a replacement. So if you know anyone who's currently trying to restore belongings like their refrigerator, feel free to share this post with them by email or on Facebook.

While spring cleaning is something that most homeowners think about and many take part in, it’s easier for people like college students who are living in dorms to overlook. But just because spring cleaning may not be as common throughout college dorms doesn’t mean you should skip it.
