This fresh2 bulb is a revolutionary new type of compact fluorescent light bulb that goes way beyond merely lighting a room. The fresh2 bulb actually breaks down common household odors, leaving your home smelling fresh and clean, while providing pure, energy-efficient light. First, this CFL uses just 23 watts of electricity, while providing the same amount of light as a 90 to 100 watt incandescent light bulb. Second, it will help eliminate orders during its first three years of use. This is the perfect CFL for use in bathrooms, kitchens, and other rooms where odors are often present.
How does it work? The titanium dioxide coating on deordorizing CFLs create a photocatalytic reaction when exposed to the fluorescent light produced by the bulb. This reaction releases electrons (negatively charged particles), creating a positively charged hole in its place. This combination of positive and negative creates a strong oxidizer called the hydroxide radical, breaking down odors coming into contact with the positively charged hole.
