Thought of the Day 2010 #63 - Eliminates Odors?

Just how does something like Fabreeze eliminate odors and not just cover
them up? Is it microencapsulation? I know it's not anti-bacterial, so
it's not working that way. Does it pluck up the offending scent
molecules and ship them to stinkier climes? I wanna know! Does anyone

easy answer?

Very hard answer, but more technical?

Cyclodestrin. Little pockets of gaseous materials that trap the smelly molecules and pull them to the ground.

sorry, typo Cyclodextrin
