Trash Odor Control Products

How Our Odor Control Products Make Trash Smell Great!

Since the beginning of human civilization, trash has always been there and it has always smelled. As early as 3,000 BC in Knossos, Crete people dug holes to bury refuse, which they then covered with dirt.

Modern civilization and technological innovations have greatly improved trash disposable methods, but eliminating its smell seems always to be a work in progress.

The ambient scenting market is flooded with over the counter options, but for superior odor control, there is nothing that does the job better than the products developed by Sani-Air.

For those who may wonder exactly why trash smells so bad, there are definite answers. It is, in the end, much better to know because that knowledge becomes a tool in a kind of know-your-enemy way.

Garbage smells because of the decomposition process and all of the bacteria that feed on rotting matter. Different materials decompose differently and have diverse odors.

Decomposing food scraps, for-example, attract microbes that multiply, feed on the rotting waste and release foul-smelling chemicals such as:phosphorus, nitrogen and carbon.

Trash can also smell badly from bio-degradable items such as leaves, yard clippings and grass and by dog waste, which is a particularly smelly affair because it has a foul odor all its own before it even mingles with other trash in a bin or can.

Sani-Air International History And Products

Sani Air has undergone several name changes over the course of the last almost seven decades.

Known once as California Scents Professional and API Associated Products, their proven track record as a leading purveyor of air-diffusion systems, odor control products and fragrance oil refills has remained unchanged over the course of almost seven decades.

Sani-Air does stand alone within the ambient scenting marketplace because it does not service end user commercial enterprises and focuses exclusively on the odor-control needs of jan san companies and scent marketing suppliers. 

How Trash Can Smell Much Better

Fragrance refills and diffusers all play a part in greatly improving the smell of trash in modern life. Sani-Air’s Aroma Styler is a perfect example of cutting edge technology at work.

This ambient scenting diffuser is as powerful as it is easy to use. Constructed from sturdy and light aluminum, this diffuser connects easily to any existing HVAC system and comes in three convenient application sizes; The Alpha for areas up to 10,500 cubic feet; The Beta for spaces up to 21,000 cubic feet and The Gamma for up to a whopping 63,000 cubic feet.

The Aroma Styler’s cutting edge technology converts liquid scent into dry, vaporous, very fine, micro particles that are 50 microns or less in size. These molecules are immediately diffused into open space, and they create an indiscernible vapor that drifts evenly across it.

It is is the perfect diffuser for ambient scenting, controlling malodors and improving indoor air quality for both large and small areas.

Other products that make trash smell a lot better include: The Trash and Dumpster Spray, Fresh Straps, Scatter and Mega Fresh products. More on each follows below.

4 Sani Air Fragrances That Obliterate Bad Trash Odors

All of the following square fragrances can be used in the API-2000 unit or the ProMaster MVP diffuser machine.


Cherry-cranberry is very desirable because it counteracts septic odors best and in liquid form is much more potent than powder.

It is also Sani Air’s BOB fragrance, meaning it is a giant wafer that hangs near or in a dumpster or trash room or anywhere else it may be needed. Potent, sweet and tart, cherry also retains a bitter almond nuance that balances its character.

Sour, tart, floral and  rosy cranberry perfectly complements the cherry elements, providing a delightfully pleasant synthesis of scent. 


Bubbly and bright, this uplifting fragrance opens with top notes streaming with  fruity, berry elements and a burst of volatile, organic compounds.

A floral/fruity heart note soon takes hold, featuring facets of powdery, sugary violet and woody-nuanced and tangy, raspberry. This memorable scent completes with a dry down dominated by dark, rich, warm and sweet vanilla musk.


Potent and uplifting, this Sani Air fragrance evokes the “feel” of the dark forest after a rainfall. Head notes stream with facets of soft, powdery cotton, woody, green fir needle, refreshing, minty pine, fresh lemon and sharp lime zest.

These aspects soon drift into a heart note of dusty, sugary and woody night blooming violet, earthy ozonic and pleasing fresh rain and salty, briny aqua marine. A dark, sensual dry down of patchouli competes this compelling fragrance. 


This deodorant square fragrance is marked by aspects of lush, elegant and strong vanilla balanced with rich floral facets. It is potent, pleasing and memorable.
