I’ve got a sensitive nose! I can sniff out a stinky diaper a mile away. It comes from being a Neonatal-Pediatric R.N. Up until a few months ago my house always smelled fabulous, no joke. But my family expanded by one very proper young lady, a busy little boy and a smelly kitty! That means a trash can full of dirty diapers (still working on the potty training) and a cat pan that I can’t seem to keep clean (What can I say? The cat eats more like a shark than a cat! )
I was Blessed to receive a Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter for review. My nose “knows” the difference!
Before Hubby installed the new Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter we were having a problem with odors in the kitchen near the trash can and in the laundry room where Dooney’s kitty pan is located. I’m a clean freak so this was really bothering me! No matter how much I cleaned or scraped the cat pan I detected a faint odor that no one else seemed to smell. I had Hubby the Hubster install the Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter from 3M and turn on the heater. Then I left the house for a few hours. The odors were always the strongest right after I came home from running errands or taking the baby to school.
Hubby was diligent about emptying the garbage (clapping hands) and the house smelled clean and fresh when I arrived home. I didn’t detect any stinky cat pan odors or trash can stinkies when I walked through the door! That’s huge because the weather turned freezing overnight and now the doors and windows are closed. That means odors that would have been trapped in my home have been eliminated by the Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter. In the past I would have sprayed air fresheners to try to cover up the odor. But I recently learned that air fresheners release volatile organic compounds in the air (VOCs)¹. And we all know that scented candles, as lovely as they are can leave a sooty, dirty film on mirrors, glass and walls.
Filtrete Odor Reduction Filters have a unique two-sided design; one side captures large airborne particles and the second side removes household odors. My home not only smells cleaner and fresher, it is cleaner and fresher. That’s because the Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter actually improves the air quality in my home by reducing allergens like pollen, mold spores, dust and mite debris.
