The ups and downs of Febreeze

I have really enjoyed Febreeze laundry freshener as a product for several years now. I admit I was hooked by the commercials that said you could spray the fabric that had gotten slightly odorous, and it would just lift up offensive particles and replace them with fresh smelling clean ones. I still remember the one about the mom spraying her kids marching band uniform. I had a friend who sprays her carpets so that when you walk around you release more of the fresh odor. So for the last few years I have been a loyal Febreeze consumer avidly spraying pillows, curtains, carpet, and upholstery.

Recently I received a freebie from the febreeze Home Made Simple site that involved one of their newer products called Febreeze noticeables which when you plug in alternately sends one of two scents into the room. Well my first thought was a bathroom air freshener, but my first whiff of the scents was much to strong for a small bathroom space. Luckily my house has an open floor plan so I plugged it in the living room/dining room area. Wow does that stuff smell strong! It is absolutely unbearable! I gave it a 24 hour trial run, and got such a headache from the overpowering scents coming from the plug in. I can assure you that I did have the scent on the low odor zone because I tested the high one just to make sure (It was worse).

Anyway today’s entry is to say I will still remain a loyal febreeze customer to their fabric sprays, but I don’t know who they tested the other kits on…..but if you see these at the store, just pass on by to your current favorite room deoderizer ( I think I will stick to candles for now).
