Febreze Review

I have two cats and a new puppy living in my home so I’ve noticed at times that it’s not the freshest smelling. That really bothers me because I don’t want my home to smell like my pets.  It gets even worse when it’s hot and humid outside because some rooms get that damp, musty smell- especially the basement! It needs some TLC.

For the past month and a bit, I’ve been using Febreze product throughout my home and they have made a HUGE difference. I don’t notice the musty smell as much when I go into my basement and am greeted by a nice, smelling home when I open the front door.

In my living room on one of the end tables, I have a Febreze Candle in Vanilla & Refresh scent. When lit, this candle gives off a wonderful sweet aroma and is very inviting. Even after I blow it out, I can still smell it.  It’s in a beautiful glass jar and matches our decor. It burns for about 30 hours and releases odour neutralizers as it burns to help eliminate any lingering pet odours in our house. I’d love to try some of the other scents and place them in different areas of my home. I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many candles! The other scents available that I want to try are Thai Dragon Fruit, Hawaiian Aloha, Lavender & Vanilla Comfort and Apple Spice & Delight.

The Febreze Set & Refresh is one of their new products that is really simple, yet effective. It’s an air freshener that you can place in different areas of your home that need a little boost. For the first use, you just insert the cartridge and that’s it. I have mine in both our bathrooms since they work best in small to medium size rooms.  I tried Hawaiian Aloha and Spring & Renewal- both are amazing!

As for the Febreze NOTICEables, I’ve been using those already for awhile and love them. They are great for larger rooms like our living room and kitchen and upstairs hallway. They are a scented oil warmer that you plug into your wall outlet and it will rotate back and forth between two complimentary scents. The scent will last for about 30 days if you set it on low. If you set it on high, you will notice more of the scent, but it won’t last quite as long. I know this product makes the biggest difference for me when I first come into our house.  I’m always looking in our local stores for these and hoping they carry more of a selection. On the website, they list such interested scents that I want to try out like Brazilian Carnaval, Apple Spice & Delight, Berry Paradise & Melon Mist and Calypso Breeze and Hawaiian Paradise. I’ve tried out the Lavender & Vanilla, Linen & Sky and the exotic Thai Dragon Fruit & Moonflower (my fave). If you have an area of your home that you want to freshen up, I highly recommend trying this product.

Febreze Air Effects is an Air Refreshener that quickly takes out any undesirable odours that are festering in your home. We use it mostly in the bathroom, and down in the basement near the cat litter. It does a great job of getting rid of the stinky smells. I like to spray it right before I have to clean the cat litter box. I hate that job and would wear a mask if I could so this product makes it a little more bearable. Also after we got the new puppy, he had many accidents and boy was it gross! Crazy how something so cute like a new puppy can smell so bad! The scent I use is New Zealand Springs, but they have over 18 scents to choose from like Rocky Springs & Cool, Sweet Citrus & Zest and Linen & Sky.

Febreze Fabric Refresher works wonders on getting rid of smells in your blankets, furniture and even curtains. I have used it on mattresses the kid’s night time accidents. I use it about once a week on the furniture to keep things fresh especially since my cats think the couch is their bed! The kind I use is called Linen & Sky and it has the fresh laundry smell. They have many other kinds you can try like Lavender, Vanilla & Comfort and Thai Dragon Fruit.
