There are hundreds of thousands of people who travel the world for work and pleasure every day. For many years in a time long past I was among them.  Yes, before 911 traveling the world was fun and cheep. You could even smoke on most planes and in the airports without being accosted by fellow passengers and security thugs. My how things have changed!
We have implemented exactly what our esteemed statesman and forefather Benjamin Franklin told us to avoid like the plague. His quote was “ Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. ” This is exactly what has happened in the air travel business.
Traveling around the world before 911, airport security varied wildly from country to country. As an example, in Italy the airport police always walked in pairs openly carrying machine pistols and often accompanied by a large German Shepard dog on a very short leash.  On ELAL Israel’s national air carrier, there were many armed security agents sitting amongst the passengers ready to end any trouble that might arise. There were a few Xray machines and no metal detectors and no arrogant,  poorly trained security people searching every thing you bring near an airport.
When you got to your destination, often you had to surrender you passport to the hotel management for your entire stay. I always tried to find another hotel! But the real surprise was the smells in the rooms left by the former residents and the chemicals used by the cleaning crews.
I have not traveled internationally in too many years except by crews ships which is very very different from flying. The room you get to travel in is it! At least once during the trip the bathroom has the strong smell of chlorine bleach which we all think disinfects the bathroom (NOT) but it smells very impressive.
The sheets and pillow cases do seem to be very clean but the colorful bed covers are much harder to evaluate. Some travel magazines consider them to be incredibly contaminated with everything from spilled food to bodily fluids of all kind.
So here comes technology to the rescue. OdorXit Magic (available in the 2 ounce carry on size) can be used to control the odors quickly and easily for an entire stay with just one application (not just one spray).  If you are concerned about cigarette smoke, bodily fluids, or bacteria and mold, OdorXit Magic will remove the odor but not alter the source. For that, you need a packet of OdorXit ClO2 which kills mold, mold spores, bacteria, viruses and cigarette smoke in just a few hours. You might want to travel with a small personal fan to assist  the ClO2 circulate thought out the room being treated.
In rooms that have one of those heating and air conditioning units that is very near the floor (old Holiday Inn style) mount the packet on top of the unit but not in the air stream. The fan will circulate the ClO2 through out the room very effectively.  In a room with the HVAC unit in a vertical box in the room with the air inlet on the floor and the outlet about eye level, stick the packet above the air outlet.
You may even want to spray some OdorXit Magic into the air inlet of the HVAC just to get rid of the smells  that accumulate there.
You can get OdorXit Products at a growing number of hardware and carpet stores in Ohio or on line at

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.
