Do Odor Eliminators Really Work?

on Oct 26, 2020

Have you ever noticed an unpleasant smell in your home and couldn’t figure out where it was coming from? Everything looks nice and clean but there’s just something about the smell that’s just off. This could be for a plethora of reasons. One of them being the fact that you don’t have a good odor eliminator to help you out.

But what even is an odor eliminator and do they really work?

What Are Odor Eliminators?

An odor eliminator is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a product specifically formulated to eliminate odors from your home. You can find eliminators like these in formats such as sprays, gels, scents, and even electronic molekules. 

How Do Odor Eliminators Work?

Depending on the format of the product each one works differently.  

Molekules 

Air purifiers, work electronically to filter the air in the room which helps to eliminate certain odors and smells from your home. If the smell is really bad, molekules can certainly help the smell go away however, you’ll want to find the root of the smell as soon as possible to make sure there aren’t any serious problems. 

Sprays 

These are the most popular way to eliminate smells and they are certainly the most affordable. You simply spray any fabric or surface where you notice a bad odor and it does the work for you. With spray eliminators, it’s important to read the label because you want a product that’s actually working to get rid of the smell (OdoBan) instead of one that will just cover up the smell (Febreeze). 

Gels

Gels are another way to help eliminate odors in your home. They are a hands-free way to neutralize bad smells. Though this option isn’t ideal for homes with children and pets because they can be toxic if ingested. 

What Is the Best Odor Eliminator?

This is a tricky question because it all depends on the strength of the odor. If the smell is very strong and you need to eliminate it right away or you can’t figure out where it’s coming from you may want to consider an air purifier. 

But if the smell isn’t really that bad, and you know it’s coming from an old pair of shoes, then you may want to use a spray such as OdoBan that not only helps eliminate the odor but also kills certain bacteria.
