Why Most Odor Removal Products Don’t Eliminate Smoking Odors

If you’re a smoker, you might not know what the fuss is about smoke odors. After all, you’re accustomed to the smell and it doesn’t bother you, as long as it isn’t totally out of control. Your nonsmoking friends, however, probably don’t feel the same way. You might think that spraying Lysol or other odor removal products or putting some potpourri out eliminates smoke odors, but your nonsmoking friends will still notice them.

Whether you’re trying to make your home or apartment smell nice or trying to remove smoke odor from car, you need odor removal products that actually remove the odors. Most products simply cover them up (and not very well). Biocide Systems’ line of odor removal products completely and permanently eliminates smoke odors. It also eliminates pet odors and other organic odors (i.e., the vast majority of odors in your home or car).

Most odor removal products don’t’ do anything to deal with the actual odor. Air fresheners and similar products try to make your home or car smell better by masking the smell with another smell. The reason Biocide Systems’ odor removal products work better is that they deal with odors on a molecular level. When you use Room Shocker, Auto Shocker, or one of Biocide Systems’ other odor removal products, the active ingredient (chlorine dioxide) bonds with the odorous molecules. Harmless ions are released and the chemical makeup of the odor causing molecules is changed. You are left with an odor-neutral space.

Whether you are trying to remove smoke odor from car, eliminate musty odors from a room, or dealing with skunk smell on your dog, Biocide Systems has the perfect odor removal products for you. They all work on the same principle: completely and permanently eliminating odors. The choice is yours: you can use standard odor removal products and cover up the smells with fragrance or you can Bio-Shock your home and car and eliminate the odors completely.

Simple Steps to Improve the Trade-in Value of Your Car

If you’re a smoker, you’re probably used to smoke odors in your home and car. Unfortunately, anyone who doesn’t smoke will notice them right away, especially in a vehicle. If you’re planning on trading in your car, you can up the value by removing smoke odor from car before speaking with a reputable dealer. You may think it’s impossible to eliminate smoke odors, but it’s simply not true. Here are some steps to get rid of smoke odors for good:

  • Clean out your car completely. Remove all trash and debris and give it a good scrub down. This won’t eliminate smoke odors, but it will give you a good starting point to do so.
  • Don’t use air fresheners. These don’t work by removing smoke odor from car – instead, they just cover it up, causing you to think the smell isn’t as bad as it actually is.
  • Open the glove compartment and ashtray and place floor mats on their side. Now, you’re ready to get rid of smoke odors with Biocide’s Auto Shocker Quick Release.
  • Activate the Auto Shocker packet and seal up the car. Auto Shocker uses chlorine dioxide to completely eliminate smoke odors in less than 24 hours!
  • When it’s done, air out the car. This will help get rid of a faint chlorine smell. Removing smoke odor from car has never been quicker or easier!

You’ll want to use Biocide’s Auto Shocker to get rid of smoke odors a few days before trading your car in. This way, you’ll have time to air it out completely. Many people tell you it’s impossible to eliminate smoke odors, but they’ll have no idea you ever lit a cigarette in your vehicle when you use Auto Shocker. Now, you can eliminate smoke odors, not just cover them up with fragrances. After all, who wants a vanilla-smelling ashtray?

Even if you’re not trading in your car, you can use Biocide’s Auto Shocker to get rid of smoke odors, fast. Just because you’re a smoker it doesn’t mean you have to drive around in a car smelling of ash. Removing smoke odor from car has never been easier with Auto Shocker.

Stop Carrying Cigarette Smell On Your Clothes – Get It Out, And Keep It Out!

If you’re a smoker, or you live with one that smokes in your home, you’ve no doubt realized that you carry a little something with you wherever you go – that nasty and unpleasant smoke smell. And no matter how long you’ve put up with the smell, there’s no real getting used to it and anyone that you run into is bound to notice it right away. But you don’t have to live with the smell wherever you go. You can get rid of smoke odor on clothes, and you can even keep it off – even if someone’s constantly smoking right next to your closet!

The first thing you have to do is always be mindful of the cigarette smoke smell on your clothes while you’re washing them. Normal detergents, especially those that aren’t the highest quality, often aren’t strong enough to eliminate smoke smell. Always be sure to use an extra-tough detergent, and one that’s designed to combat cigarette odor, if possible. Also, be sure to use fabric softener sheets when you’re tumble drying your clothes. Again, often one is not enough with these so use two or three if you need to. And if you find these irritate your sensitive skin, use ones that don’t come with a fragrance but that will still neutralize odors.

Caring for your clothes of course, will only get rid of smoke odor on your clothes after you’ve worn them, and for a little while when they come out of the drawer. But, if you’re just going to hang them back in a closet that also smells like cigarette smoke, the smell is bound to seep back into your clothes in no time. The key then, is to eliminate the smoke smell in your closet, so your clothes can continue smelling fresh.

A product such as our Room Shocker 30-Day Time Release product ( will eliminate the cigarette smell from the space around your clothes, and keep both your closet and your clothes always smelling fresh and clean. Because it’s time-released, the space and your clothes will keep smelling good; and even if you keep your dirty laundry hamper in with your clean clothes, this product will absorb the cigarette smoke from your dirty clothes too.

Room Shocker is a safe and effective product, and allows you to remain within the room the entire time it’s working. You’ll know it’s working because the smell will be gone, but you’ll never even notice that it’s there, because it’s so easy to use. And of course, that cigarette smell also carries with it the noxious fumes that make cigarettes so harmful to people’s health. But Room Shocker completely sanitizes and sterilizes the air in the room where it’s placed. So not only will your clothes smell better, but they’ll be healthier, and so will the air around you too!
