Advantages: Lovely long lasting smell. a little spray goes a long way so economical.
Disadvantages: None really
I always like to have two, or even three air freshener sprays around the house for times when the dog embarrasses himself, or for the usual unpleasant odours which may occur.
I keep one in the small downstairs loo, which doesn't have an opening window. Although it does have an extractor, sometimes a little extra help is needed. I also have an aerosol spray in the bathroom and an extra one in the kitchen, which I use after a smelly meal, such as fried onions, chilli con carne or curry.
I might sound neurotic, having three sprays around but I use them sparingly and not too frequently. As there are two asthmatics living in the house I go easy on chemicals, (As I have said in past reviews) and open a window whenever possible but, as we all know, there are times when a short sharp burst of an artificial odour is the best option.
Sometimes I will spray a little air freshener in the living room or hallway. This is usually when guests are expected and I wonder if my house smells 'doggy!' When I do this I am often reminded of my late mother in law. It was always amusing when we arrived at her home and she would quickly get out the air freshener and spray quite liberally, almost choking us! She must have used at least a bottle a week!
I think, when the housework has been done, a few squirts of Air Wick make it seem (even if only to oneself) as if you've done a great job. Also if you don't manage to complete all the household chores because, like me you're reviewing products on Dooyoo, then my tip (but don't say I told you!) is: squirt a little bleach around the toilet bowl and sink overflows, spray a small amount of polish into the air and lastly squirt some Air Wick,sparingly, around the house. After a short space of time the aroma of these products is faint but the house smells 'finished!'
I use various air fresheners but my favourite at the moment is Air Wick 4 in 1 cotton breeze. I love the smell of Cotton Breeze in particular from this range, as this is a lovely smell. It isn't overpowering and you only need to use a little for the smell to spread around the room so, therefore, it lasts longer than most other air fresheners that I've used.
As, I find, such a small amount of the spray is all that's required it is long lasting and thus economical.
As with nearly all my household sprays/ cleaners I will usually purchase in a pound or 99p store so rarely pay more than one pound.
Air Wick 4 in 1 is made by Air Wick, which was formerly known as Haze.
It is 4 in 1 because, as it says on the container:
1- Premium fragrance
3- Acts in seconds
4- Lasts up to 1 hour
I would agree with these claims.
Summary: Definitely my preferred air freshener spray
