Fresh2 Bulb Simulation

The Fresh2 Bulb
It's a light bulb that removes stink from your room. What a concept. The Fresh2 is a 23 watt compact fluorescent that gives off the same amount of light as your old-school, non-stink-removing, energy-wasting 100 watt incandescent bulb. A thin transparent coating of titanium dioxide on the Fresh2's spiral bulb, when activated by light, actually destroys bad odors in the kitchen, bath, nursery, laundry room, basement, etc. The Fresh2 doesn't just cover up bad smells with a fragrance; its oxidizing action breaks down odor molecules into harmless carbon dioxide and miniscule amounts of water vapor. At $10 to buy and about $10 per year in electricity cost to run, the Fresh2 works out way cheaper than aerosol sprays, plug-ins, or powders, and does a better job of eliminating odors. The odor-removing power lasts for three years and the bulb will provide light for 10,000 hours (about ten times the life of an ordinary incandescent bulb). For the full Fresh2 story, read my lead article over there on the left. You do read my business articles, don't you? Man does not live by Cool Things, links, and funny pictures alone.
