What is Fresh Wave and their Odor Removing Gel product?
Fresh Wave is a company dedicated to producing environmentally-friendly odor removing products. They've been producing products free of harsh chemicals now for twenty years.
I first met Fresh Wave at the Mom 2.0 Summit in Orlando. I hadn't heard of them before, but after I spoke with them at the summit, I was interested if you really could balance something that removed odors, was safe for the environment and for my family.
I was given a few free sample products at the summit and decided I would come home and do a test of their products in my home and write this review.
Are the Fresh Wave crystals safe?
Yes. They are. I mean, I didn't taste them or anything. But we did use their product for over a month, around my two children and our pets.
Their products are made from natural ingredients. All Fresh Wave products blend natural ingredients like extracts of lime, pine needle, aniseed, clove and cedarwood. While I still don't recommend tasting their products, they definitely didn't have the harsh chemical smells that other products definitely have.
How does the Fresh Wave Gel work?
The Fresh Wave Gel uses natural odor-absorbing materials. It sucks in all the "yuck" instead of trying to cover it up or kill it. Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel molecules evaporate into the air, outnumbering those bad odor molecules. For typical household odors one Fresh Wave Gel (7 oz or 15 oz) will be effective up to 200 square feet.
What was our Fresh Wave Gel field test?
Okay, so to explain my test for this Fresh Wave Gel review. I mentioned I have two boys, right? Did I mention we're also temporarily living in a small apartment?
How about the pets? Did I mention them as well?
I took two 7 oz Fresh Wave Gel containers and placed them in the boys' bathroom for one month. This was a bathroom that I almost couldn't set foot in before Fresh Gel. I mean, it smelled soooo bad. My wife and I would clean it regularly - with those harsh products. It never stayed smelling clean. At best, it would smell like bleach, but even that didn't last long.
Did the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gel product work in our test?
Yes! It worked very well, in fact. Before we placed the Fresh Wave Gel container in the bathroom we were cleaning the room multiple times a week to remove the odor.
Since we've started using Fresh Wave Gel, we are on what I would consider a more 'normal' cleaning schedule. We clean the room based on the level of cleanliness, not just the smell.
Here's how I really know it worked - my 14 year old son actually asked me why the bathroom doesn't smell any more. This coming from a teenager that barely gives me more than one-word answers to "how was your day" actually had a conversation with me about the smell (or lack thereof) in the bathroom!
