Get that stink out

Pew! Have you ever opened up your fish house, camper, cabin, or even your garage and thought, "What is that awful smell?!"

Smells can come from anywhere and from anything, but some smells are worse than others and they don't seem to dissipate even with the windows open!

Our noses have the ability to differentiate over 1 trillion different scents! As amazing as it seems it's a fact.

While how smell works is an interesting study in itself, we aren't going to get into that in this short blog post.

What we will talk about is a simple, yet effective way to get rid of smells in your fish house, camper, cabin, house, garage, or anywhere else odors pop up.

Smell Be Gone

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a product out there that simply eliminated odors instead of masking them? If that product could be safe for you and your family and your pets, that would be an extra bonus.

Well, has what you are looking for!

Here in Minnesota, it is nearing the end of ice fishing season. That means taking the fish house off the lakes and it also means getting rid of that stinky, fishy smell. If you don't clean your fish house before you close it up for the season, well, next winter you could be in for a moldy, mildewy, stinky surprise!

Mold doesn't just grow in your house, boat, shed, or grows all over including your ice house.

As we are removing the fish houses, an extra step now can save you a lot of work later. Getting rid of mold takes a lot longer than preventing it!

Our Xanigo Marine line of mold prevention products has you covered! It works in your fish house, your boat, your garage, and even your house! Anywhere mold grows, Xanigo Marine products work!

Mold and mildew can cause a lot of odor problems for many of us. Even if we don't think mold is hanging around, you would be surprised at where it can sneak in. Our bathrooms can be hot spots for mold. Basements and other places in our homes can be breeding grounds for mold.

Get rid of the mold and a majority of foul odors will go away!

We also offer Vital Oxide which also works great at getting rid of foul odors. You can check out this article about how we got rid of cat urine smells in a carpet in my house. In a nutshell, however, here are some quick pointers from that article.

About Vital Oxide and its odor-eliminating powers

Vital Oxide is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered product that is a super effective odor eliminator. It is ready to use with no mixing required.

In tackling my "cat" odor, I sprayed Vital Oxide right from the bottle all around the room. The smell did not disappear immediately, but within a few hours, it had been nearly eliminated. If you have ever had a cat urine odor in your house, you know that it is a smell that is really hard to get rid of. After a day, the smell no longer existed!

Because Vital Oxide is safe, I didn't have to worry about my other pets getting sick from smelling or coming into contact with the product.

Easy and effective clean-up

Here is the method for cleaning up pet urine and eliminating odor.

Whether it's urine, vomit, or droppings, Vital Oxide has the cleaning power to eradicate foul-smelling odors and stubborn stains.

1. To clean urine from carpets or upholstery, use a dry towel to initially blot up as much of the urine as possible, being careful to not rub it in.

2. Then, rinse the area with a bit of hot water to dilute the remaining urine.

3. Repeat the first step to blot up as much of the urine and water as possible.

4. Finally, spray Vital Oxide on the area to eliminate odors and stains. Be sure to use enough of the formula to penetrate the carpet or upholstery fibers and all areas the urine may have penetrated and simply let air dry. A fan can be used to dry the carpet or upholstery faster if needed. Its formula contains a unique form of stabilized chlorine dioxide that is very effective at killing bacteria, viruses, and mold yet non-corrosive to treated articles and gentle enough to handle without causing skin irritation.

So, in brief, I won't trust odor elimination to anything else. My health and the health of my family and pets are important enough to trust products in our Vital Oxide and Xanigo Marine lines.
