Stinky Paint—I Think Not

I have been putting baking soda in my fridge for as long as I have owned a fridge, knowing that it helped eliminate odors. I diligently replace the box every few months to keep the fridge fresh. Last month I heard about some new paint from Dutch Boy that has baking soda in it. Apparently what it does for a fridge it can do for an entire house. While I don’t understand why it does not lose its odor-absorbing ability like the fridge-based system, I am happy to try something that gets rid of odors. I also don’t understand how the technology locks in the odors preventing the walls from smelling like wet dog, but I will chalk that up to the magic of science. I am thinking of painting the inside of my fridge and never having to buy another box of baking soda (well maybe for actual baking or making volcanoes). Plus, this paint gives off zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), has GREENGUARD certification and is mildew-resistant.

Paint Contest - My House Stinks!

04/02/2009 02:03 PM kardos

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you all know on behalf of Dutch Boy about this really great contest that involves free paint AND cash prizes. Here's the info:

Dutch Boy is looking for the person who feels they have the ugliest, stinkiest room in America.
*Post pictures or videos of your smelly room that needs a makeover
*Grand Prize: 12 gallons of Refresh paint and $5,000
*2nd Place: 8 gallons and $2,500
*3rd Place: 4 gallons and $1,000

Pretty cool… you get free paint that takes care of whatever smell you can't get rid of - smoking, pets, cooking, etc - AND extra money to do a little remodeling, too.

If you want some info about how the paint actually works, here you go:

Through natural airflow, the odor vapor molecules come in contact with the walls and are captured and locked within the paint film. Scrubbing the painted surface will not release the odors.
