Auto Care 101: Identifying the Type(s) of Odor in Your Car

Did you just smoke a cigarette in your car? Is the car still reeking of your child’s vomit from last week? As you are likely to know already, most smells, particularly that of cigarette smoke, is not easy to remove from your car even as you shampoo the upholstery and carpets.

But the fortunate part is that the majority of these smells—vomit, food, cigarette smoke, urine, mildew, grass, skunk—are some examples of the common ones – are organic. A suitable cleaner coupled with the right technique can do the job for you i.e. keeping the material from further decomposing. It would act in a similar fashion against the offensive and unhealthy smells budding from its air conditioning system.

Auto Care 101: Using Biocide Auto Shocker to Deal with Strong Odors

Drive a truck, a car, or an SUV? The make/model of your car doesn’t matter when you are using an innovative product such as Auto Shocker, which uses Chlorine Dioxide, or ClO2, as its powerful chemical deodorizer and odor elimantor.

What You Need to Do

Instead of simply going ahead with deodorizing, the first thing you need to do is prepare the car for the process. This includes removing the dirt and trash stuff from your car, essentially cleaning up. The cleaner the car is, the more effective the attack is going to be. Also, keep the areas accessible for penetration like opening the glove compartment and placing the floor mats on their sides. And last but not the least, keep the car in the shade because sunlight hastens the Cl02 degradation.

The directions basically instruct you to submerge the product in a particular cup of water and place it in the vehicle before closing the door. You don’t have to be present while it works; you can dispose of the packet and air your car once the due time is complete for an impressively fresh-smelling car. The time varies according to the severity of the odor.

How it Works

ClO2 is an oxidizer, meaning that it will break up or neutralize the odor molecules residing in your car with the help of oxygen. Constituting of charged molecules, it is literally attracted to the foul smells. What makes it different from other chemicals is that it will degrade quickly to water and simple salts.

5 Easy Tips to Remove Bad Odor

So you are a neat freak you say. You can be a neat freak all you want but that doesn’t guarantee you will be able to avoid those stinking smells that force you to hold your nose. Opening windows and exhaust fans won’t do much to help either when you are battling with the odor of cigarette smoke, pets, aftershave and perfumes, even bad food. Ready not to give in? The following tips and tricks should help you remove stench and odors from your rooms in your house!

remove bad smell

1.     Bath-time for your trash cans

This is for cans both outside and inside of your homes, so take special note. Make sure you are using hot soapy water the next time you wash them so any smelly remains still clinging to it will come off.

Once dried, place right down at its bottom multiple (used) fabric softener sheets. This will absorb the unfortunate smell; yes, your trash actually won’t smell this time.

2.     Home remedies a-cookin’ for the lingering odors in kitchen

According to the EPA, the air inside homes is 2-100 times more polluted than outside; chemical fresheners, while common, aren’t exactly healthy. The grilled salmon smell for what you had for lunch, for one, can be fixed with boiling a mixture of baking soda, water, and lemon peel; burning all-natural soy candle would help prevent it in the first place.

If the offensive smell is from the fridge, eliminate it with a sachet of dry coffee grounds (and cloves) you can place it inside. Alternatively, use white vinegar to wipe the fridge walls. Counters and cutting boards can be scrubbed with a mixture of salt/baking soda and lemon juice; follow it up by rinsing and then applying mineral oil to the spot.

  1.      Deodorize the toilet

Used frequently, you can work with household vinegar and allow it to sit for 5 minutes at least before briskly scrubbing it and flushing it. On the other hand, a scrub made with baking soda, borax, and salt is useful too. A scented scrub is available with some drops of essential oil dabbed onto cotton balls.

  1.      Neutralize the musty basement

You would want to activate your dehumidifier; it would no longer be damp, but that isn’t going to get rid of the mildew smell. For that, you would need either inexpensive vodka or rubbing alcohol, mix it with some drops of tea-tree oil, and spray it on the musty items. Sounds too much of an effort? Opt to shelf activated charcoal; it will absorb moisture and deal with the smells too.

  1.      Overpower stale closets and carpeting

And if it were not embarrassing enough for you already, you have the wardrobe emitting these horrible smells too. Pet owners will have to fight the bacteria and urine off their plush carpets too. Go proactive- hang in a clean sock with dry coffee grounds in your closet, and proceed to give your carpet a baking soda treatment and thorough vacuum. For the bacteria, spray a disinfectant in between cleanings.

Office or Home, Use Room Shocker to Deodorize

It can be risky letting the stench go untreated, more so when you are considering it in your ‘new’ office space or in your recently vacated rental. A little time and effort on your part can go a long way to get rid of it.

  1.       Ventilate the room. Take the smelly items outside too, if possible.
  2.       Clean the space including vacuuming; washing thoroughly the hard surfaces, and soft furnishings; and changing filters to any heating/air conditioning system you think are affected.

Since a clean room shouldn’t necessarily be equated with odor-less spaces, hence whether as a precaution or a management service, proceed to use the Room Shocker solution. It basically uses Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2), an oxidizing agent that the Biocide Systems have made available for such small-scale use in the form of single-use high-tech packet, to disinfect your room and neutralize the smell without leaving any sort of harmful residue behind.

All you need to do is to place the packet of ingredients into the disposable plastic cup that is filled 1/4th with warm tap water, leave and close the room, and let it emit the vapor (thus the deep penetration) and tear apart the odor molecules. Following it, you may need to ventilate the room again before it is ready for your guests.

How to Remove Cat Pee Odor

Despite all his or her attitude, you love your cat. They are precious bundles of joy. Right there to give you love and accommodate you. So you can’t but help overlook their mistakes and make cover-up stories for the ‘accidents’ your cat caused. But there is one thing that is decidedly not excusable: your cat relieving itself in your bed, on the carpet spread across the living room, or even on your work clothes!

Cat pee odor

Your cat piss whiff is going to be greeting your guests when they enter your house. I know, you can’t bear it yourself and it’s dreadful. And the only fear you have in mind as you prepare to clean it up is what if the stain and the smell never go away. Now that would be a problem.

Follow these tips on removing cat pee odor from your home and the reasons behind it.

  1.       Cats are known to be fussy creatures as well as being “fuzzy”, adorable pets. Try to keep their litter box as clean as possible so they wouldn’t have second thoughts about doing their business elsewhere.
  2.       For when your cat or kitten pisses on the carpet, make sure to blot up as much of the cat pee with paper towels or old rags; treat the spot to a water and vinegar mixture and let it dry. Then sprinkle baking soda over it. After having tested the hydrogen peroxide on an inconspicuous area of the carpet, sprinkle the solution along with dish detergent and work it in with a good old brush. Let this dry too and vacuum it. 

If, for some reason, you can still smell the cat piss, lather and rinse it before repeating. You may want to consider renting a wet vac or extractor to get rid of the heavy stains set in your carpeting; avoid the steam cleaners for upholstery or carpet cleaning though because it will permanently bond the stain to the fibers.

  1.       For the machine-washable laundry, including your bedding, clothing, rugs, add apple cider vinegar or baking soda to your usual detergent and then air dry it. Again, if the cat urine’s smell is still detected, then wash them again, this time adding an enzymatic cleaner to the mix.
  2.       If the wood of your baseboard, furniture, or walls has reacted to the urine acid and feature discoloration, you would need to remove and replace its layers of paint or varnish. There are washable wallpapers and washable enamel paint that are considered safe for pets.
  3.       But if you are looking for a green and easy to use product, which additionally is effective at removing the strong cat pee odor from your home and car, Bio Shocker can help. Not much is required on your part in terms of time and effort; it is even safe so people who get affected with the chemical stuff can benefit from it.

Cleaning of the cat’s mess is stressed too for the reason that if they can smell their own urine at the particular spot, they will continue to come and use it again repeatedly. Given that, the economic Room Shocker is the ideal solution because they eliminate the odor forever using CI02 odor eliminator technology. 

If home remedies are not your thing, contact 877-792-4624 and get to know more about this revolutionary technology. With Biocide products, it’s a guarantee you won’t always be worrying about accidents in future.
