Okay, think of some of the worst smells you have had in your home. Odors you would do anything to get rid of…embarrassing odors or ones that make you sick whenever you get a whiff of it. Sometimes these are in the bathroom, others come from deep down in your drains, sometimes our furry friends are the culprit. Here’s a forewarning…I apologize as this post covers one of the more repulsive odors I know, so it might be a little gross.
We had some out of town guests a while back and in an unfortunate turn of events, two of us got sick from some sort of food poisoning during the visit. One of us did not make it to the restroom in time and instead threw up all over the carpet on the way to the master bathroom. Even though it was thoroughly cleaned, the odor lingered and lingered – right in our bedroom. It was enough to make me feel sick all over again. I didn’t have the time to rent a carpet cleaner (which I did later at the next opportunity) so I needed a fix quick.
Fresh Wave Natural Odor Eliminator has a wide range of products to eliminate odor from odor crystals to drain cleaner, from laundry detergent to home spray and more. There are no harsh chemicals and it doesn’t just mask the odors – it eliminates them naturally. It is non-toxic, biodegradable, and safe for humans, pets, and the environment. As an added bonus it is made in the USA. Ingredients include water and natural extracts of lime, pine needle, aniseed, clove and cedarwood. The scent has a fresh citrus woodsy smell.
I purchased the Fresh Wave Home Spray and the Crystal Gel. The home spray can be sprayed into the air or onto surfaces or fabrics, so after spot testing on the carpet, I doused the spot with the spray. Additionally I opened the crystal gel to make sure all remaining odor would be absorbed. Thankfully, it worked! The remaining fresh smell was not overwhelming or chemical smelling. It left a light pleasant citrus smell in the air and our repulsive odor was gone! Additionally, I also like that the crystal gel container has a pretty little top on it, to make it a nice addition to a bathroom or kitchen. For those who travel a lot or need freshening on the go, Fresh Wave also make a travel size home spray that packs easily.
