Why Do OdorXit® Products Smell The Way They Do?

  • 02 Apr, 2010
The reason the OdorXit® Magic and Concentrate smell the way they do (and that is not bad) is that; their odor is what the stuff that makes them work smells like. The post Why Do OdorXit® Products Smell The Way They Do? appeared first on Odor Removal for Just About Everything.
My neighbor, who is still house-breaking her beautiful and ultra friendly 2 year old Puggle (half Pug, half Beagle) will not use OdorXit Concentrate to eliminate the urine odor in her family room carpet because she does not like the way it smells. I don’t know what she would prefer it to smell like nor does she, but not what it smells like now.  It doesn’t matter that the OdorXit smell only lasts 1 or 2 days after use…it has to smell like something else.
The reason the OdorXit® Magic and Concentrate smell the way they do (and that is not bad) is that; their odor is what the stuff that makes them work smells like.
We have added no special (cover) fragrances to these products for several reasons.
  1. If we were to add a fragrance to OdorXit products, there is a 100% chance that a majority of users would want some other fragrance. So…If you want your house or office to smell like roses, or lilac, or some other smell you like, use a fragrance dispenser to disperse the perfume after you have used an OdorXit Product to eliminate the offensive odors.
  2. OdorXit liquid products either absorb (Magic) or neutralize (Concentrate) odors and odor producing products.  That includes urine (mercaptin), feces, rotting material, ammonia, most perfumes and many other odors. So if we were to put a perfume in an OdorXit product it would limit the ability of the product to do its job because perfumes are odors too.
  3. Since OdorXit liquid products actually do work to eliminate odors, putting a perfume or fragrance in the product would possibly make the product less effective. It would also limit the ability of the users to determine if their effort to treat a contaminated area had been completely successful.
It is not our intention to make the world smell like something else.  It is our intention to eliminate bad odors.  Some times not so mad odors get caught up in the effort.  As an example, it you sprayed OdorXit Magic into the air and then took a big whiff of the mist floating where you sprayed it, the chances are the mist that lands on your olfactory nerve in your nose will intercept the smell of the t-bone you have planned for dinner.   Or spraying magic on your wife’s wrist after she has sprayed your favorite perfume there will absorb all the alluring fragrance.
The bottom line is that broad spectrum odor eliminators like OdorXit Products eliminate lots of odors. Use them prudently.

Remember when you were a kid and you got a new puppy for Christmas? You came down stairs to see if Santa had come and left you gifts. But there sitting in a box with the wobbling lid was a long floppy eared puppy! Your eyes got as big as saucers! You couldn’t believe your eyes. It was the best Christmas ever. A new dog for you!


Will You do the Same for Your Kids?

And now it’s your kids’ turn to get a new puppy under the Christmas tree from you. You remember all the fun of your puppy – you named him Buddy. He was your buddy. He followed you everywhere. Through the house, in the back yard, some days he even tried to follow you to school. He was the perfect companion. At least that’s what you remembered.


But now you’re the mom in this equation. Not the wide eyed little girl so you’re thinking of all the other ‘situations’ that come with this little puppy.



Oh, the training.  Who gets to remove dog urine from the carpet? Will that be your job this time? What about not jumping up on people. How big will the puppy get? Who gets to train him not to bite; to get along with the cat? That training just seemed to happen with your childhood dog, Buddy.


And what about the house breaking – no peeing in the house? You don’t remember having to remove dog urine from the carpet as a kid. That’s right. Your Buddy never peed inside the house. Well, maybe he did. But you as a kid never had to clean it up so you don’t remember.


Dog Poo on the Carpet

And the poo. You do remember stepping in it once on the carpet as you got out of bed. But that was only one time. Right? You thought it was funny because you tracked it all the way down the hall…on the carpet.

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.
