  • Deodorize Your Car Using Auto Shocker

    Most individuals, in their efforts to ensure their car doesn’t come off as anything less than nice and clean, try to ‘remove’ the pungent smells and odors from their car with fragrances and perfumes for a quick fix. Thing is, it never works. Ever.

    These smells and odors are able to penetrate all types of fabrics and will stubbornly cling to everything unless you are more thorough in your odor removal approach.

    Our product the Auto Shocker, has been highly rated for its efficiency in the removal of odors from vehicles of all sizes.

    From simple usage and effective results to it being non-toxic, Auto Shocker is an environmental-friendly odor eliminator and it is why many professional car detailers love it and use it religiously. Here’s why you should too.

    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.

  • Putting the Grown Up Toys Away the Right Way

    Many of us, especially in the Northern states, dock our boats and park our RVs for the winter months. It’s generally with a sigh and a wistful look back over the summer, wishing that we could stretch it out just a few more weeks. We know this isn’t the time most people think about Spring and getting the recreational equipment ready for the upcoming season, but it should be.

    Think back to last Spring/early Summer. Remember the smell when you first pulled back the tarp or opened the RV after months of having it shut up? Remember the stale, musty odors?

    We’re not suggesting you don’t keep your boats and RVs clean, but the fact is that most people really don’t know how to get rid of boat odor. We’re sure that your RV would have smelled great at the beginning of the season if you had known how to get rid of RV odor.

    The best way to avoid bad smells in the Spring is to Bio-Shock your boat and RV when you put them away in the Fall. Biocide Systems’ Auto Shocker and Marine Shocker are perfect for eliminating odors completely.

    Odors are generally caused by decaying organic material. The reason your boat or RV develops a strong odor while it’s in storage is that it has several months, usually without much ventilation, for that decaying organic material to foment. When you Bio-Shock your boat and RV, you eliminate the odors on the molecular level. Of course, you’ll still want to clean your boat and RV (Auto Shocker and Marine Shocker are odor removal products, not cleaning products or disinfectants, per se). Cleaning alone, though, doesn’t generally remove odors-at least not completely.

    Auto Shocker and Marine Shocker are both safe and easy to use. The simple instructions will show you how to get rid of RV odor and how to get rid of boat odor now, so when next Summer comes, you can get your RV and boat out and start enjoying yourself that much quicker, without having to deal with musty boat and RV smell.

  • Getting Your RV Ready for the Summer

    Anyone who has owned an RV for more than one season knows that they can get pretty musty after being shut up for the whole winter. Even if you did an excellent job cleaning it and winterizing it, chances are that your RV is going to have some odor issues that you’ll want to deal with before hitting the road for that first vacation of the summer.

    Unfortunately, most RV owners don’t really know how to remove RV odor completely.

    You could just spray air freshener in the RV. Of course, you end up with an odd mix of musty odor and floral scents when you do that. So, how to remove RV odor? You need an odor eliminator that really works. You need to Bio-Shock™ your RV.

    Biocide Systems’ Quick Release RV Shocker can have your RV smelling clean and odor neutral in no time, so you can get out and enjoy your RV this summer. Simply follow the instructions on the package and let RV Shocker do its thing. The chlorine dioxide in RV Shocker will eliminate odors and release clean oxygen. Before you know it, you’ll be off to destinations unknown.

    You can’t help getting odor in an RV. Anytime you have people living and sleeping together in a small space, you’re going to have odor develop. The fact that RVs are often closed up for weeks or months at a time doesn’t help, either. It’s a good idea to order extra RV Shocker so you’ll have it on hand when you need it. Ideally, you should use RV Shocker at the beginning and ending of the camping season. Of course, you can also use it in the interim as the need arises.

    When you have the right odor eliminator and know how to remove RV odor, it’s easy to keep your RV smelling clean and odor neutral.

  • Solutions for Getting Rid of Odor in your RV

    When your RV starts to put more funk in your trip than you expected, with that nasty smell coming from well..., somewhere, it’s time to take action.

    If you’re unsure of where the bad odor is coming from, but you need to get it out of your RV, you can use a product called RV Shocker. This product uses chlorine dioxide and will remove all smells such as cigarette smells, pet smells, and other unpleasant odors from your RV in only two to four hours.

    One of the biggest odor problems that occurs in an RV is a musty smell. Musty smells come from dark, damp places and so your best bet is to first find any areas where moisture might be coming in. Check the windows and look for any cracks around the doors or other areas. Then give the entire RV a very thorough cleaning. Remember to clean everything including mattresses, cushions, furniture, and anything else that might absorb and hold the odor. Then leave them outside until they are completely dry.

    Of course, there are always easier ways to get rid of odors in your RV too. One is our product, RV Shocker. This product is available in both quick-release form and thirty-day release form. Both of these products contain chlorine dioxide, which will be released as soon as it’s placed in water. So whether you need a one-time fix for a smell in your RV, or you’re dealing with a lingering odor problem, RV Shocker will be just the thing to get you back on the road again in style – and in a fresh-smelling space!

    One last thought, RV Shocker is also excellent for removing that strong toxic fresh off the line new RV chemical odor!
