Compact Fluorescent Fresh2 Light Bulb Doubles As Air Freshener October 18, 2010Posted by bowmanlamps in air freshener, compact fluorescent, light bulb.
Here’s an interesting idea. What if you could use a light bulb to remove odors from a room? Sound ridiculous? Well, it’s not so far-fetched.
The fresh2 light bulb , manufactured by TCP Inc., safely breaks down odors, while providing energy-efficient light. It’s billed as a healthy alternative to traditional, chemically based air fresheners. Simply turn on your light and fresh2 begins eliminating odors in just 10 minutes.
How does it work? The CFL light bulb is covered with titanium dioxide. When expose to the fluorescent light, it creates oxidizers which attack your persistant odors. Imagine the improvement in locker rooms, kennels, laundry rooms and more – even college dorm rooms!
And fresh2 will continue to break down odors for three years. Plus, since it’s a compact fluorescent light bulb, its power to comfortably light your home will last 10,000 hours — saving you hundreds in deodorizers and up to 75% in energy costs.
My college-age son decided to test one of the odor ending light bulbs. He left a stack of stinky, dirty socks in a pile on his floor, turned the fresh2 light bulb on, and left the room. The pile of dirty socks was enough to offend the senses. When he returned to the room a little later, he could not smell the socks. How will you use your fresh2?
