Removing Garbage Bag Odor From Your Kitchen

  • 28 Jun, 2009
Are you concerned about the environmental impact of the hundreds of thousands of ultra strong garbage bags being added to our land fill garbage dumps every day? The post Removing Garbage Bag Odor From Your Kitchen appeared first on Odor Removal for Just About Everything.
Are you like me? Are you as concerned about the environmental impact of the hundreds of thousands of ultra strong garbage bags being added to our land fill garbage dumps every day as I am? Do you wonder how many years will it take these bags to decompose and release the nutrients harbored in the garbage back into the environment?
The answers to these questions are:
  1. I hope so
  2. Land fills are filling up with encapsulated garbage very quickly and not releasing the trapped neutralists back into our environment.
  3. Deterioration super strength plastic garbage bags takes way too long measured in years
There are several strategics that will substantially reduce the number of plastic garbage bags entering our land fills every day.
  1. Use your garbage disposal for all your organic garbage.
  2. Use paper grocery bags as garbage bags instead of plastic bags.
  3. Use the largest plastic garbage bag you can to reduce the number of plastic bags you use.
  4. Buy and use products that create a minimal amount of garbage/trash.
  5. Recycle all reusable/recyclable trash.
If you don’t have a garbage disposal or you have a septic system that will not accept garbage you are left with only 4 alternatives. And bagging table scraps and cooking waste is just about the only alternative most of us have. Bagging can quickly become a very smelly alternative so the obvious solution to the odor problem is to simply take the garbage out and start a fresh odor free garbage bag. If you are using the increasingly hard to find paper grocery bags that decompose quickly both in the land fills and in your garbage cans the environmental impact is reduced substantially. But they are a poor substitute for plastic for controlling wet garbage.
No doubt you have seen the garbage bag TV commercials for Glad ® OdorShield ® garbage bags and the Hefty ® Odor Block ® garbage bags. I must admit the commercials are quite compelling until you actually see the item at the store and learn that the Glad ® bags have 3 scents to choose from.  The Hefty ® bags say that they are unscented. If you are a scented candle kind of  person, using a scented garbage bag is probably an acceptable alternative to using a product that actually removes the offensive odors from the garbage bag and prevents the odors from contaminating the air in your kitchen or pantry or where ever you choose to hide you kitchen garbage container.
The alternative is quite simple and inexpensive. OdorXit Magic’s secret formula of water based essential oils is a deodorant that is sprayed into an empty garbage bag or container with the included mist sprayer. It continues to absorb garbage odors produced by the contents of your garbage bag for days. Yes, only 1 or 2 pumps of the mist sprayer will protect your kitchen from garbage odor for at least a week or more and when you finally do take out the full garbage bag, your garbage can will benefit from the lack of offensive odor and the environment will benefit by you using fewer plastic garbage bags.
OdorXit Magic  absorbs the odors produced by the items in your recycle bin too. Just a couple of pumps on the inside of the bag of box and the odor is gone.
Where can you find this magical product? On the OdorXit Web site of course, but you can also find it is selected hardware stores in southwestern Ohio and a growing number of Big Bob carpet stores in Ohio. Visit our Retail Store Locator for our growing list of retail outlets.

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.
