Here's a sneak peek snippet from the upcoming issue:PRODUCT REVIEW:
If you’re anything like me, you probably have a fairly substantial collection of older books and magazines in your home library. I have a collection that goes back to the 1960’s with a few odds and ends that go as far back as the 1920’s. I’ve tried my best to store them properly, avoiding moisture and sunlight, but they still seem to have one thing in common; they all smell a bit “funky”. I recently purchased a number of magazines on eBay that were definitely not stored as well as they could have been; they actually left an odor on my hands after handling them. This was the last straw for me, so I began to scour the Internet looking for some way or some thing that would help freshen my library. After chasing down a few leads and finding mostly dead ends, I think I have found the perfect product.
Smelleze® from Imtek Environmental Corporation, is an amazingly simple and effective product that works as advertised. To remove their odors, I placed a few of my more pungent periodicals in a sealed Rubbermaid™ container for a few days along with the Smelleze® pouch. Much to my surprise, the magazines came out fresh and odor free. To be honest, the magazines came out with no odor—completely neutral smelling. Smelleze® works by actually absorbing and encapsulating book odors, not by masking them with fragrances.
Books, magazines, and documents may also be stored with a Smelleze® pouch over long periods of time to absorb moisture and to prevent musty mold and mildew odors from permeating them. To periodically rejuvenate the pouch, simply heat in the microwave for 2-4 minutes, or place in direct sunlight for a day and then reuse. A single Smelleze® pouch can be used many, many times; making it very cost-effective.
Smelleze® is natural, non-toxic, odorless, reusable, non-flammable, and non-caustic. It is an environmentally friendly solution for eliminating musty book odors without using harsh chemicals or harmful processes.
An extra large pouch of Smelleze® costs $12.99, and is available from http://www.noodor.com
