(ARA) – If you have kids, from the time they’re in the cradle to when they move into a college dorm and everywhere in between, they need help keeping their stuff clean. And when back to school season arrives, the backpack, sports duffle, locker and dorm room all take on smells of their own.

The forgotten banana in the backpack, sweaty hockey gear left in the duffle or last week’s turkey sandwich in the locker all create tough odors. You may be able to stick the backpack in the washer but smells often linger even after being washed. And you can’t wash out their locker at school.

An easy solution for both problems is to drop a Fresh Wave Pearl Sachet into the pocket of their backpack. The kids hang the pack in their locker where it further attracts and rids the locker of bad odors. The packet attracts the odorous molecules from the locker as well as the backpack to keep both smelling fresh.

Fresh Wave, a unique odor neutralizing product comprised of a proprietary blend of Soya, natural extracts of Lime, Pine Needle, Aniseed, Clove and Cedarwood, comes in a variety of forms. Independent laboratories’ research and data prove that Fresh Wave products are effective for eliminating all kinds of odors.

How does it work? When the mixture of natural elements is activated by airflow, it attracts captures and neutralizes odor molecules. All that remains is a clean, natural-smelling environment, with no masking fragrances and no harsh chemicals.

When the kids go off to college for the first time, many will stay in the dormitories. Dorm rooms have smells of their own from last year’s occupants and probably the previous ones. Not only is this smell not welcoming, but can be intolerable. Not to mention the odors that come from some roommates who aren’t especially tidy.

You can’t follow your kids there to help, but you can send along something to help them keep their space smelling more like home. Make a college survival kit, including things like a set of utensils and dishes, homemade cookies, a picture of the family dog and something to help keep their space smelling fresh and clean.

If you think your kids would never use it, think again. The Fresh Wave Gel is so simple. They just open the jar and set it in an inconspicuous spot for continuous, safe odor removal. Air currents in the room waft over the open jar allowing the gel to soak up odorous molecules. You can send a new jar with them every semester for a fresh, clean-smelling living environment — so much better for studying!

And for the conscientious student, drop a small bottle of the Fresh Wave spray into their packs for those times when they pull an all-nighter and don’t have time for a change of clothes before class. The spray eliminates all kinds of odors, even cigarette smoke, for a fresh, clean smell without masking perfumes.
