Remove Skunk Odor With Ease!

March 3, 2010

I don’t think there are very many people that have not smelled the odor of a skunk.  We all know that this odor is one of the worst odors that you could ever smell.  The problem that most of us face when a skunk sprays is, how do you get rid of the skunk odor?  I have talked to many people that say their pets have been sprayed by a skunk, them or someone they know were sprayed by a skunk, a skunk sprayed next to a person’s house, and on and on.  I always tell people that Odor-Z-Way works better than anything else at removing skunk odors and is much cleaner and cheaper to use.  I want to take you through a couple of real life situations and explain how to use Odor-Z-Way when getting sprayed by a skunk.

1) Skunk Spray Next to a Home — As I was saying before, I have had a couple of people approach me and ask if Odor-Z-Way would work outside on a skunk odor?  The answer is yes, Odor-Z-Way will work on a skunk odor even if the odor is outside.  The problem that one individual had is the skunk sprayed right next to the air conditioner which sat right below a window to the home.  When the air conditioner was running the air was being forced upwards right at the window.  The skunk odor was basically being forced into the home at this point.  What I told the individual was to take the Odor-Z-Way and sprinkle a fairly heavy amount in the general area where the skunk had sprayed.  If you can find the exact spot this is even better.  You want to use enough Odor-Z-Way to where you can see some white on the ground.  Now, you just have to wait for the Odor-Z-Way to absorb the entire skunk odor.  This is all you have to do.  You do not need to pick up the Odor-Z-Way later.  Since the product is environmentally safe, it is perfectly fine to let the Odor-Z-Way blow away in the wind or wash away with the rain.  You problem is taken care of easily and with minimal effort.

2) Skunk Odor Removal From Your Pet — The most common type of problems that we hear about involving skunk spray is when someone’s pet gets sprayed by a skunk.  Now, we have all heard about using tomatoe juice, vinegar, and baking soda to get rid of the skunk odor.  The problem with this is that the process takes forever, is extremely messy, involves a lot of work, and does not really get rid of the odor all together.  It may take a couple of days to get rid of the skunk odor after using this method.  If you use Odor-Z-Way, you can get rid of the skunk odor in 2 hours or less.  Since Odor-Z-Way is pet safe, we tell pet owners to give their pet a dry bath with Odor-Z-Way.  Just sprinkle the Odor-Z-Way directly onto your pet.  With a skunk spray, you are going to want to use a decent amount of Odor-Z-Way to get rid of the odor.  Now, rub the Odor-Z-Way into the fur of your pet.  That’s it!  Your pet will eventually shake all of the Odor-Z-Way out on their own.  Since skunk odor is a very strong odor, you might have to give your pet one or two more dry baths depending on how badly they were sprayed.  Odor-Z-Way will take care of the problem for you.

3) Skunk Spray on Humans — Another area that I would like to share with you is when people are out hunting, hiking, walking, etc. and they run across a skunk and get sprayed.  I have been asked several times about these problems as well.  If this happens, what you want to do is take your clothes and place them in a plastic bag.  Take some Odor-Z-Way and sprinkle the product all over your clothes.  You want to use a pretty good amount of Odor-Z-Way, since the odor is going to be really bad.  Make sure everything in the bag looks white.  Now, force all of the air out of the bag and seal the bag so that no other odors can get into the bag.  The point of this is to allow the Odor-Z-Way to absorb only what is in the bag.  Now shake the bag up so the Odor-Z-Way can come in contact with all of the contacts inside of the bag.  Leave the Odor-Z-Way on the clothing at least over night.  After this time expires, shake your clothes out and wash them.  Any extra Odor-Z-Way that is left on your clothes will not harm them or your washing machine.  After that you should have fresh clean clothes again

If the skunk spray gets on your skin, you can also get rid of the smell with Odor-Z-Way without going through the process of the tomatoe juice, vinegar, and baking soda.  You just need to take some liquid soap, water, and Odor-Z-Way and rub into the area on your skin that has the odor.  You might need to do a couple of applications this way, but this will take out the odor in a short amount of time.

These were all real life experiences where people have used Odor-Z-Way to remove skunk odors in various situations.  Anyone who has a skunk odor problem needs to try Odor-Z-Way because everyone will find that the product works, works faster, is cheaper, and can be used with minimal effort.

Odor-Z-Way Compared to Other Products

March 2, 2010

In recent articles that I have written, you probably heard me talk about how Odor-Z-Way is a far superior product to any other product out on the market.  Well, I want to go in and explain why and how Odor-Z-Way is a far superior product to all of the products out on the market right now.  I am going to talk about the comparisons between Odor-Z-Way and other enzyme products (Oust, Febreeze, Ozium, etc.), carbon, and other natural zeolites (solid products such as Odorzout, odor crystals, etc.).

First, I want to take a look at Odor-Z-Way and the advantages is has over its competition.  Odor-Z-Way is odorless.  Odor-Z-Way has absolutely no odor to it because the product only absorbs impurities.  Odor-Z-Way is white in appearance.  This means that the product is a clean and will not discolor, stain, or cause any defects to you carpet, clothing, upholstery, etc.  The product is environmentally safe, human safe, and pet safe.  You can sprinkle Odor-Z-Way on your carpet and your kids can walk through it and the product will not cause any harm to your kids.  You can also apply Odor-Z-Way directly onto your pet to remove odors and there is absolutely no harm caused to your pet.  The product is predictable and has a larger tunnel structure allowing the product to obtain the same results over and over again and absorb more than any other product out on the market.  With being a solid product, Odor-Z-Way absorbs and removes impurities completely so they are not still present.  Odor-Z-Way is an FDA approved product.  The product is also a multipurpose product with hundreds upon hundreds of uses.  This allows you to get rid of 20 other products in your cabinets and replace them with one safe product that will do the job.  This also saves you money!  Last of all, Odor-Z-Way is a true American made product.  Everything that goes into making the product is found right here in the US.  These are the main benefits that we have found that Odor-Z-Way has over its competition.

I now want to talk about enzyme products that are out on the market.  Enzymes are spray type of products that usually have some type of odor to them.  Some enzymes also claim to neutralize odors and stains.  The problem with enzymes that have an odor to them is that they are masking over odors.  The odor actually never goes away.  When an enzyme like this is sprayed you just have a stronger odor and in some cases if the enzyme is sprayed on a particular gas, you could possibly create a toxic odor.  Enzymes are also not safe to spray on your pets or around your kids.  For instance, if your pet gets sprayed by a skunk you cannot spray certain products onto your pet to remove the odor because they could cause serious health issues.  This is the same thing for your kids.  As for enzymes that supposedly neutralize odors and stains, they do neutralize them, but they don’t get rid of them.  I had an instance where a particular enzyme product was used to get rid of a stain in carpet but left the odor.  The carpet was then dampened and Odor-Z-Way was put on the carpet to get rid of the odor.  The Odor-Z-Way took out the odor but also started pulling the stain back up out of the carpet.  The stain was actually never removed.   It was just neutrally broke down to where it looked like it was gone.  Enzymes can also discolor and cause other defects to your carpet, clothing, upholstery, etc.  You really must be careful when working with enzymes!

Now let’s take a look at carbon.  There is a golden rule with carbon against Odor-Z-Way.  In gas (odor) absorption, whatever carbon can do Odor-Z-Way cannot and whatever Odor-Z-Way can do carbon cannot.  In many instances, Odor-Z-Way and carbon put together can do a lot of good but for the general public Odor-Z-Way is far superior.  There are many products out on the market that use carbon currently.  Carbon does not have the absorption capability that Odor-Z-Way has.  Odor-Z-Way lasts much longer and can absorb much more than what carbon can.  Carbon is also a dirty product, so it cannot be used for stain removal.  Carbon is also becoming very expensive.

Last of all there are several natural zeolites.  These are the odor removal products that you have seen that look like small rocks and claim to do really good at absorbing odors.  In all reality they do absorb odors but not that well.  In comparison to Odor-Z-Way, they can only absorb half of the amount that Odor-Z-Way can and they cannot do stain removal because they are a rock which means they have dirt in the product.  These products also have smaller pore sizes not allowing them to absorb as much as Odor-Z-Way.  They are also inconsistent.  One time you might be able to absorb an odor and the next time the product doesn’t work at all.  You really never know what you are going to get with the natural zeolite products.

Odor-Z-Way can be used in many more areas than enzymes, carbon, and natural zeolites.  The advantages of Odor-Z-Way greatly out way any of the competitions and through extensive testing it has been proven that the superior product on the market is Odor-Z-Way.

How Odor-Z-Way (man-made zeolite) was started

February 26, 2010

Odor-Z-Way was actually created from the water conditioning industry.  After figuring out a variety of uses in water conditioning it was found that a larger size of the same crystal could be used as a superior odor and stain removal product.  I have listed the short story below about how Odor-Z-Way was origionally invented in the water conditioning industry.

In 1925 Emmett Culligan, with help from Fred Lindsay, formulated the process to produce synthetic zeolites. Together, they started the Northwestern Chemical Company. Fred’s brother, Lynn Lindsay, was one of the company’s salesmen, who later started the successful water softener company bearing his name.

In the late 30s and early 40s, there were two zeolite plants: one in San Bernardino, CA, and the other in Yuma AR. By the late 40s, the company had produced a high-capacity zeolite with capacity of 20K grains – doubling capacity of domestic water softeners.  
 
The Changing Marketplace
 
That accomplishment was soon overshadowed by the development of synthetic – or plastic – resins in the early 50’s providing even higher capacities of 30K grains per cu ft. With increased competition from plastic resin manufacturers, Culligan closed the Yuma zeolite plant.
 
 Zeolites are first cured outdoors in large beds before refining and processing. Here, the mild weather and prevalent sunshine of the Kansas City region provides ideal conditions.

The remaining zeolite facility in San Bernardino was later purchased in 1985 by Glenn Gruett, the owner and founder of Water-Right, Inc., a water softener manufacturing firm based in Appleton, Wisconsin. Water-Right had previously used Culligan’s zeolites extensively and successfully in a majority of the softeners they manufactured. They were also one of the largest customers of zeolite at the time.
 
With the purchase of all rights, equipment and technology, Gruett moved the entire operation to Phillipsburg, Kansas, under the corporate name of Mineral-Right, Inc. This operation became the first modern synthetic zeolite plant in the country. Through carefully controlled manufacturing, zeolites are now produced in several different grades, each possessing different water conditioning characteristics.
 
 
The Northwestern Chemical Company closed during the Great Depression. Emmett Culligan pushed onward, starting the Culligan Zeolite Company in 1936 in Northbrook, Illinois. The zeolites manufactured through his operation had a capacity of 10,000 grains per cu ft – two times better than processed greensand. This accomplishment essentially created the modern water softening industry we have today.
