About Citrus-Mate Products:

Orange-Mate® Mist, Lime-Mate® Mist, Lemon-Mate® Mist, Grapefruit-Mate® Mist, and Cinnamon-Mate™ Mist are manufactured in Oregon by Citrus-Mate Inc. from high concentrations of natural citrus peel oils. Citrus oils and aromas are generally the major by-products of citrus processing and are used in a variety of marketed products.

There are approximately eight types of oils and aromas commonly manufactured from citrus. Their characteristics, standards and uses vary among the types and grades. The citrus oils used in Citrus-Mate products are the best quality available. They select high quality citrus for one reason: to provide you with a top quality and dependable product.

Citrus-Mate products work at eliminating odors because they contain the unique physical properties of essential oils. These oils are distilled and highly concentrated.

The concentration of Orange-Mate® Mist averages ten oranges per ounce of product. Thus a 7 oz. container holds the concentration and eliminating powers of seventy oranges. The essential oils in Citrus-Mate Mist products possess the ability to attack and absorb odors. This ability is carried out in several steps:

1. When the product is released into the atmosphere in a gas form by depressing the actuator on the container, citrus ions (active electrical charges) are released. These ions are attracted to other suspended particles, i.e. odors.

2. Citrus ions are very active electrically and they bond with other ions to form a compound. In essence the citrus ions search out and attack odor.

3. Once the compound is formed, the citrus in it absorbs the odor due to a process called oxidation. Oxidation in citrus occurs very rapidly when exposed to the atmosphere. It is important not to release the product until desired because oxidation results in decomposition and spoilage. For these reasons, Citrus-Mate uses a hermitcally sealed container which protects their products from spoiling because it is suspended in air-tight conditions.
