Summer...Sand...Sun....Fun.....ODORS!!!

Summer's heat and humidity oftentimes cause unpleasant odors to intensify.  

There are two approaches to odor control:  odor masking and odor neutralizing.

What is Odor Masking and How Does it Work?
One approach to odor control has been odor masking. Masking an odor simply involves setting up a competition between a malodorous molecule and one with a pleasant odor.  This is the approach common in most "air fresheners."

The two types of molecules compete for their particular odor receptors in the nose. By using an overwhelming amount of masking agent, the masking agent receptors in the nose become highly stimulated and the malodors are not able to compete to produce a detectable odor.

This approach, substituting one odor for another, will only be effective against persistent malodors, if the masking agent remains present and in sufficient concentration, to continue winning the competition. However, when employing odor masking, the malodor is not modified and remains in the air.

NILodor Products are Odor Neutralizers
In order to neutralize an odor, a product must do at least one of two things:

Remove a malodorous molecule from the air so that it never reaches nasal receptors,
OR
Change the shape (molecular geometry) of a malodorous molecule so that it won’t fit properly into its nasal receptors.

If the malodorous molecule is either removed totally or unable to fit in its receptors, no odor will be detected.

NILodor products contain a unique chemical formulation which does both. The product not only removes malodors from the air but also chemically modifies many malodorous molecules so that they can’t fit into their nasal receptors.

Thus, NILodor products are true odor neutralizers. As an added bonus, the products also leave a mild, pleasant fragrance which accents any environment.
