When you walk into a house you probably notice that it doesn’t smell exactly the same as your house does. Each home has its own unique scent. When you walk into some houses you may love the scent of your home. Unfortunately when you walk into other homes the aroma that you breathe in is not as pleasant. If you find yourself walking into your own home and frequently breathing in a nasty smell what do you do?
How Do Air Fresheners Work?
Most people will start with some sort of air freshener product. Air fresheners are products that are designed to mask odors in the air. The job of an air freshener is not to actually eliminate the odor though; they simply cover the offensive odor. Air fresheners come in many different varieties and scents. You can purchase sprays, powders, candles, gels and plug-ins. Some of these air fresheners work continually to help your home smell better. Air fresheners that you plug in are an example of continuous action air fresheners. Sprays, powders, and candles only work when they are activated by the user. All of the different types of air fresheners will indeed help your home smell better but the cause of the odor will still be in your home.
How Do Odor Neutralizers Work?
So how do you get rid of the odor completely? That is where odor neutralizers come in. Odor neutralizers actually eliminate the odors in your home for you. They do this by attacking odors at their source by creating a chemical reaction with the unpleasant scents. There are some natural odor neutralizers that people have used for years. Baking soda and vinegar are both excellent natural odor neutralizers. Many people put an open box of baking soda in their fridge to help neutralize any smells that be start to happen. The baking soda is extremely effective! There are also air cleaning products that serve as odor neutralizers. The commercial odor neutralizers work in the same way that natural odor neutralizers do.
Air Freshener VS Odor Eliminator

Air fresheners are an awesome way to make your home smell warm and inviting. The scents available in the different air freshener products can truly be enjoyable. Many people find that having plug-ins or candles in their home makes them love their home more. There are some concerns with the chemicals found in air fresheners that you will want to be aware of. If anyone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma air freshener products can make their symptoms worse. If you want to make sure that your house does not get a nasty smell in it odor neutralizers are the way to go. Odor neutralizers will help you get rid of the unpleasant smells that may develop in your home instead of just masking them. In addition odor neutralizers will not cause issues for anyone that suffers from allergies or asthma.
