Our goal is to make the world a safer, cleaner place. We aim to change the way people look at “organic.” No longer do you have to give up quality for safe cleaning. Our Air Purifier & Cleaning Products work as well or BETTER than poison products — and they are totally organic and safe. Other major manufacturers of “odor eliminators” design products that don’t actually “eliminate”; they simply “mask” propagating the environment with harsh chemicals that is intended to only “disguise” the odor. We are designed specifically to correct this wrong & eliminate odors instantly & organically.

@hd:We Tried This Out
Name: Freshana and Petromist
Manufacturer: Freshana Organic Solutions, Roswell, Ga.
What it is: Odor eliminator and oil remediation (removing) solution
What I thought before I used it: In a word: Skeptical.
I enjoy watching Infomercial spokespeople. Not for the products that they sell; or the services they yell about; instead I like to watch them for the outlandish claims and fantastic demonstrations that they use to make us, the audience, want to grab our credit card. I have been on the receiving end of too many friends who have purchased and been disappointed with the “As Seen on TV” claims.
In the case of Freshana and Petromist, I didn’t get the “show”; no yelling or exclamatory statements that “this product will turn a land fill into a nature preserve”… (Even their web site is understated!) In the packaging material I received both products included the statement (note the normal tone of message) “try it out and see what you think…”
Why I like it: The product’s odor is not extreme. There is no instant rose, cinnamon, sour apple or other “perfumed” type smell that makes me wonder what the user is trying to cover up… instead, the smell is slightly like an ozone machine when it is operating… very understated and pleasant.
What I don’t like about it: The only downside I have with Petromist was that I’m not sure what sets the oil remediation apart from other generic degreasers. In my testing, I received the same results with big store green type generic grease removers. I had no qualms with Freshana.
Where I found it: The products come from a local business. I heard about them through a recommendation.
Where I used it: To test this product I conducted several “slightly” scientific experiments. They were:
** I sprayed Freshana into a teenager’s smelly dirty clothes closet… (Results were instant. The odor was destroyed and didn’t return till new dirty clothes were placed in the closet. I’m not sure any product could be a “teen odor preventer”.)
** I sprayed Freshana onto a pet urine-stained and smelly carpet (Nice improvement… the dog even paused and sniffed the now fresh smelling area, but did not “re-scent” the carpet” Hooray!!!)
** I sprayed Freshana into a covered trash can that was in desperate need of cleaning. (The odor disappeared quickly. It hadn’t returned a couple of hours later after even after baking in the sun)
** I sprayed Petromist onto a greasy Stove top (Results were similar to any other Degreasing cleaner)
** I sprayed Petromist onto a dog’s bed; no urine this time, just dog smell (Results were the same as the air freshener. The odor was removed and replaced by the slight ozone smell.)
How else could this product be used: While I did not do a test trial for this, Freshana could serve a valuable purpose during the make-ready process, particularly with apartment homes previously lived in by cigarette smokers.
Final comments: I’m a big fan of products and services that perform the way their makers say they will without them having to make outrageous claims. (Please note I’m not a paid spokesperson for any product or service. This is an unsolicited opinion and in no way should be taken as a guarantee.)
