“ Brand: Daisy / Product Type: Air Freshener „
I only tend to use an air freshener in the bathroom and I tend not to buy the large aerosols as lets face it they are as bit bulky and it's far too easy to overdo it with them. I found this in my local tesco for £1.78 and as there were three spray cartages in the pack as well as the dispenser I decided to give it a go. As with all these types of air freshener the dispenser can be stuck to any clean flat surface by the sticky pad provided. Then simply pres the dispenser and a measured dose of the spray is released. The cartridge was easy to load but you will need to be careful where it is positioned or the flap won't lift and you won't be able to fit the cartridge. The dispenser is small and can be easily hidden in an inconspicuous place. This is useful as the dispenser isn't the most aesthetically pleasing thing to look at. There is also a 'screw-fix' hole to hang the dispenser on but to use this would have meant the hassle of putting a screw into one of the walls of my bathroom and DIY has never been my strong point. The item is also only available with the dispenser in white. The only one I have tried is the lemon-lime scented one although I have not seen any other varieties so I can't comment on their availability. Whilst this does not smell exactly like lemon-lime more like cheap lemon-lime sweets or a generic citrus scent it isn't exactly unpleasant. Initially it is quite a strong and the lime is very noticeable as is a fairly strong sweetness. The sweetness comes mainly from the chemical scents used in the manufacture of this kind of product. The scent does soften on spreading through the room and the lemon proportion of the spray becomes a bit more noticeable. The smell does linger for quite a while after spraying and it does keep the bathroom fresh. One of the things which I have realised is that the adhesive powers of the sticky pad is not very good. The dispenser came away from the wall within a week so it was out with the double sided tape to fix it back onto the tile. I am still using the first cartridge and it has been in use for about a week and a half. This does suggest that it is good value for money as with the branded ones you could pay more than the cost of the while pack for just a single cartridge. Each of the cartridge contains 15 ml of the spray. The dispenser does look quite flimsy and it may not last very long but as it wasn't exactly expensive it can be replaced with out much extra cost. Unfortunately I haven't seen any refills sold separately but again £1.78 for the three cartridges and the dispenser will hardly break the bank when I get to the end of the third cartridge. As with most products of this type you will need to keep the spray off surfaces like polished wood etc as the ingredients will end up doing it some damage to the finish of the wood if contact is prolonged or made too often. The brand 'daisy' is one of the discount brands which Tesco carries and I don't believe that they are stocked anywhere else.
