How Nilodor Works

How Nilodor Works:

Nilodor Concentrate, the original, non-toxic odor neutralizer was introduced to the American Market in 1955. Since then, it has become famous for its immediate and long term effectiveness in malodor control. This document explains why the concentrate is so effective.

Malodor Control Methods:

There are 5 ways to combat malodors. Each has advantages and disadvantages. They are as follows:

  • VENTING: Venting a malodor simply involves moving the odor away through forced air ventilation. This technique is generally effective in the short and long term. However, it is not a method conducive to good neighbor relations or air quality and can require expensive equipment.
  • ANESTHETIZATION: This method involves using chemicals, such as formaldehyde, to deaden the sense of smell. It is a method which is immediately effective using low cost chemicals. It has no long-term benefits, however, as it does not treat the malodor. The chemicals employed are usually toxic.
  • SOURCE REMOVAL: This method involves eliminating the source of the odor. Obviously, it is the most effective long-term solution to a malodor. It is often, however, the least practical method. Sick room odors cannot be cured by disposing of the patient. Disinfectants and enzyme products are designed to eliminate bacteria or remove one specific odor source.
  • MASKING: Masking an odor involves overpowering a malodor with a higher level pleasant scent. The chemicals can be inexpensive and provide immediate effectiveness. Masks wear off in about 2 hours and require constant reapplication. Masking is not a popular method today as people become offended by the mask itself after a period of time.
  • NEUTRALIZATION: Neutralizing an odor involves lowering the malodor level to a less noticeable degree. The best known odor neutralizer is baking soda, which neutralizes refrigerator odors. Neutralization is an effective means of dealing with malodors on a longer term basis. Neutralizers can be easily applied in almost any situation as they can be non-toxic. They lack immediacy, however, as it takes time to absorb odors.
The NILODOR Way:

Nilodor Concentrate combines the best attributes of two methods to provide immediate and long-term malodor control. A single drop of the concentrate can handle almost any malodor in a 1,000 cubic foot area for 24 hours.

How it works:
  • TOP NOTE MASK: Unique masking agents provide immediate relief for up to 2 hours.
  • LEVEL 1 NEUTRALIZER: Begins neutralizing immediately. After about 2 hours, the neutralization has taken hold and continues to work through hour 6.
  • LEVEL 2 NEUTRALIZERS: Takes hold of malodor from hour 6 through hour 24.
  • IMMEDIATE AND LONG-TERM EFFECTIVENESS …that’s Nilodor Concentrate every product manufactured by Nilodor, Inc. contains this unique deodorizing concept.
Odor Neutralization:

How Do People Detect and Recognize Odors?

Human beings detect and recognize odors by a complex set of physiological and biochemical processes. Detection begins when odor molecules (like benzaldehyde from Maraschino cherries) enter the nose and attach to areas in the nose called “odor receptors”. By precisely fitting into the odor receptors, the odor molecules cause an electrical signal to reach the brain. The brain translates the electrical signal and allows us to recognize the particular odor. If the electrical signal is strong (i.e many odor molecules attached to many receptors), we sense a weak odor. We attach meaning to the odor (good or bad) simply based on experience.

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. 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 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.

How Does Nilodor Neutralize Odors?

The chemical compounds present in Nilodor contain a variety of organic, functional groups (aldehydes, carboxylic acids, alcohols, etc.) which are capable of performing specific chemical and physical interactions with molecules containing common odor-causing functional groups like amines, mercaptans and others. For example, volatile, low molecular weight amines can be removed from the air by forming inert and nonvolatile quaternary ammonium salts with certain components of Nilodor, and mercaptans (sulfhydryl-containing) compounds can form thiohemiacetals which are basically odorless. These effects, in conjunction with hydrogen bond-based and chelation-based complex formation processes which alter odoriferous molecule shapes, combine to generate the powerful odor neutralizing effects of Nilodor products.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:

Remove the Odor Block for the wrapper and strategically place the Odor Block in the area to be cleaned or treated. To control the amount of deodorant emitted by the block and also to extend the life of the block, try these tips:

  • Snip off a corner of the package. Later, when the scent is reduced,  cut off a larger portion of the package. Wrap a rubber band around the package to make sure the block doesn’t fall out.
  • Poke a few holes in the package to control the release of scent.

When the scent is reduced, poke a few more holes in the package. Airflow and temperature also influence the amount of scent released. If the deodorizing scent becomes too strong, reposition the block in an area of lower air flow or lower temperature or remove the block.
