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.

Extinguish Gasoline Fire!!

February 26, 2010

I recently was playing around with the Auto Odor-Z-Way and found out that this product would put out gas fires!  It is the craziest thing ever.  I had a little gas spill on our shop floor when I was doing some work on our buggy.  A buddy of mine decided that he wanted to have a cigarette and used a match to light his cigarette with.  He then threw the match, that was still on fire, on the ground right into a small puddle of gas.   Of course, the gas started on fire.  So out of instinct, I grabbed the Odor-Z-Way that was sitting next to us on the bench.  I always leave the Auto Odor-Z-Way on my bench so I can absorb oil off of my floor, like a floor dry would.  Anyway, I sprinkled the Odor-Z-Way over the fire.  Amazingly, the product put the fire out with no problem.  I thought this was kind of weird, so I tried doing this in a controlled experiment.  It worked again!  While the Odor-Z-Way was still on the gas spill, I tried to light the spot back on fire again.  It would only spark a little for a second but would not light back up.  I came to the conclusion that the Odor-Z-Way absorbed the gas vapors not allowing the gasoline to start back on fire.  I will definately keep this in mind to use Odor-Z-Way the next time I am around a gas fire.
