Well, *My House* Doesn't Smell Bad

You are somewhat insensitive toward the offensive odors in your own home but attuned to picking up the offensive smells in others. According to a recent study by Dutch Boy and Harris Interactive, 96 percent of adults have noticed an offensive odor in another person's home, but only 36 percent have noticed a similar smell in their own home. Of course, Dutch Boy has got an angle on all this research. Its new Refresh paint is formulated with Arm & Hammer odor-eliminating technology. Not only is it a smell destroyer, but it also has zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is mildew-resistant. It can be found at Dutch Boy retailers starting at $23 a gallon.

Arm and Hammer Paint

Well, I wonder if it works on eliminating cigarette smoke as well, or at least keeping it down a bit.

Refresh seems very fitting a name, especially since the jug itself looks like kitty litter.

Eliminating Odor with Refresh

04/02/2009 02:09 PM kardos

Refresh actually does eliminate odors caused by smoking cigarettes - it also works great for pets or strong culinary smells.

For more info about how the paint works, go to: http://dutchboy.com/refresh/it-works/

On another note, Dutch Boy is holding a contest for the Refresh paint. 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.

I work on behalf of Dutch Boy, so if anyone has any questions, feel free to email me at: KKardos@mwks-inc.com.
