      Masks rather than eliminates

      I am a air freshener and candle-aholic. If there is a new fragrance/unit that I see whilst out shopping I have to try it!! WHAT IT IS Whilst browsing my local Wilkinsons store, I spotted this Dettol Neutra Air freshener on offer for £1 never one to pass up on an air freshener to make my home smell lovely, I picked one up in the fragrance Fresh Morning Dew. This came in a blue aerosol can, no lid just the push down aerosol spray upon the top. The can contains 300ml of product and tells me this spray eliminates odours at the source and in the air, kills 99.9% of bacteria and provides long lasting freshness. You can use it on bin lids, toilets, pet areas, carpets, trainers and fabrics but not on pets, leather surfaces, polished surfaces, food or food preparation, fabrics with direct skin contact. HOW TO USE I simply spray air freshener whenever I feel my home is in need of a boost and of course if someone has used the toilet and left a "smell" this air freshener is slightly different in the fact that it can be sprayed into carpets and surfaces aswell as being used as a standard air freshener. WHAT DID I THINK Well, whilst the fragrance is ok it certainly does not remind me of a fresh morning. It actually smells very artificial and a bit Febreze like (I'm not a fan of that either). Whilst it says it eliminates odours, I really feel it just masks them and it's one of those smells that if you walked into someone's house you would know they had just squirted the air freshener around to cover the smell. I do think it's handy that you can use it to freshen up carpets and fabrics but as I'm not keen on the fragrance, I did not use it this way. Perhaps I should try a different one, but I'm not convinced it would be much better. I won't be purchasing this again, in fact I threw half a can away as it just wasn't getting used. If you want to try perhaps try one of the other fragrances.

      Amazing!

      Ok so this is gonna be a pretty blunt review... Poo smells, everyone's poo smells, and anyone who says it doesn't is lying. Hence the need for air fresheners. I know that people either generally love them or hate them, but this one really is worth considering. This review is for Dettol Neutra Air in Revitalising Fresh Breeze scent. I picked this up spur of the moment from Poundland - I'm never normally that fussy about air fresheners, but saw that this claimed to neutralise bacteria too and thought I would give it a go. Also, it claims that you can spray on to some surfaces directly which I thought was pretty unique. Although since it lives in our toilet we haven't used it in this way. Take note of the instructions though, as there are obviously some surfaces that it shouldn't be used on. It comes in a pretty bog standard aerosol, nothing fancy - It works, and has a good action on the spray which is all thats important. I've also noticed that you can't feel this come down in little droplets like you can with other sprays, so maybe it sprays a finer mist than most? Which is also a benefit. To be honest, the fresh breeze scent isn't my favourite - Its quite sharp, and not as subtle as I would prefer and is a typical air freshener type smell. Don't get me wrong though, its not unpleasant, just not to my taste. So I'd be inclined to try one of the other scents in future. However what I've been amazed at with this product is the fact that it doesn't just cover the poo smell like other brands, it actually gets rid of it - There is literally no hint of poo in the air at all. I'm genuinely amazed by it, especially in comparison to other air fresheners. Obviously I can't comment on whether it does kill bacteria or not, but I'm guessing to have this effect there must be some truth in the claims. Also, the scent lingers for a while, around 2 hours which is plenty long enough in my opinion. This is so effective, and for the price I think its almost unbeatable!

      Nice citrus smell.

      I buy a lot of air fresheners to just freshen up the air in my rooms, usually I like to spray them when I have come home and my home smells of pet smells. My home does smell a little of pets and I like to make sure it smells pleasant. The one I am reviewing is the Citrus Breeze. I actually like the name of this one, it sounds refreshing and it is. The freshener comes housed in an aerosol and it has a press down nozzle and has no lid. Having no lid I like a lot because I don't then lose the lid. It has a really nice even mist to this one and it doesn't drip from the can. It sprays evenly around the room and a nice mist and not all cloudy in the air after spraying it. It has a nice citrus smell to it and one I do like a lot, it refreshes the air in my rooms and leaves them smelling nice. I can smell more of an orange smell with this freshener but it has a hint of a lemon smell too added and so I find both these smells add a nice smell to my rooms. Like the way it gives the air in my rooms a fresh citrus smell, this smell does last for some time and doesn't fade faster than some other ones you can buy for the same price. It kills 99.9% bacteria and so it is a good one to kill nasty smells which are in rooms and in the air. Dirt and dust floats around the air and this one kills those bugs to leave the air as clean as possible and with a nice fresh smell. I use it in my bathroom and I bought 2 at the time because I have 2 toilets in my home and it saves having to go to the cupboard to get the spray for the other toilet. It removes cooking smells really well indeed and it removes fish and curry smells and any other nasty smells around the home. It just freshens the air a little bit more if a door has been closed most of the day. I like the way it doesn't mask over odour but removes smell. It says on the can that it kills bacteria when sprayed onto surfaces, I don't actually spray air fresheners onto surfaces and so cannot say as to whether or not it does kill bacteria on surfaces too but the option is there if you want to spray it onto surfaces. It is good for neutralising pet smells, I have pets and the spray does help the rooms smell nice and a nice citrus smell in the air instead of that pet odour. The quality is a good one and it is a good value price at just £1.60 for a 300ml can. It isn't expensive to buy and I imagine it could be priced at a little less bought in a different shop to the supermarket but I haven't spotted it cheaper than this price I bought it. I recommend this one to people wanting a good air freshener with a nice citrus smell. I will buy it again because I like it quite a lot and it works really well indeed for freshening the air in my rooms around my home. I rate it 5 stars.

      A good way to eliminate toilet smells!

      ---Intro--- I seem to have written several air freshener reviews now. I feel that air fresheners of some descript (of course there are a variety of different options) are a necessary evil, mainly to eliminate those bad toilet smells! I'm not brand loyal when it comes to air fresheners, and tend to get whatever's on offer or looks like good value. I bought this Dettol Neutra Air for £1 in Asda which I think is a good price for a decent air freshener. I tend to have 2 different air fresheners on the go at my home, but this particular air freshener is one that we've been using at my boyfriend's house (where I mostly live at the moment for work purposes) for the past couple of months at least (they do seem to last a long time even when used fairly liberally), and I thought I'd review it as we get to the end of the can before starting on a new one. ---The packaging--- This comes in a standard 300ml aerosol can. I have the Fresh Morning Dew fragrance which is predominantly blue, with a rather blurred picture of some flowers in grass, and the green Dettol logo. As with most (except the very cheapest) air fresheners, the nozzle in part of the lid. It's an effective spray with no drippage or wastage. There is loads of information on the back on the can (some of which I'll now discuss). ---Using the air freshener--- This air freshener includes step by step instructions on how to use (shake well, hold upright, spray lightly in air, or 15-20cm from surfaces. This is perhaps a slightly unusual air freshener in that it can also be used on surfaces. Unlike most air fresheners it is suitable to be sprayed onto bin lids, toilets, pet areas, carpets, trainers and fabrics - so this could potentially be useful (I however only use it as an air freshener). It also says what you can't spray it onto which includes pets, food, and certain surfaces. The need to spell it out that it shouldn't be sprayed on pets did make me chuckle! As with all air fresheners there are a number of warnings on the can, such as its extreme flammability, keeping out of the reach of children and that solvent abuse can kill instantly. It also states that air fresheners do not replace good hygiene practices. So while this can be sprayed onto a toilet, you do still need to clean it! ---The smell and other info--- Dettol Neuta Air is said to eliminate odours at the source and in the air, killing 99.9% of bacteria, and leaving your home smelling fresh, pure and clean. It is said to be particularly suitable for bathroom and pet areas as apparently many of the worst odours are created by bacteria. As already mentioned unlike other air fresheners, Neutra Air is also said to kill bacteria when sprayed directly onto surfaces, which could be useful if you've run out of other fabric sprays. Initially I'd say that this is perhaps a little bit less chemically smelling than some air fresheners which has to be a good thing. I think that it smells slightly floral, but not in a sickening way. I find that this air freshener lasts well (and lives up to the long-lasting freshness which the product claims), as the smell lingers a while, but in a good way - leaving the bathroom smelling clean and fresh rather than of chemicals. I think that this is a good air freshener for even the worst toilet smells as it seems to neutralise them pretty quickly! ---Finally--- I think that this is a good air freshener as it does well eliminating the worst smells. I don't think that it's absolutely perfect and will continue on a quest to find the perfect air freshener, but will probably get this one again and perhaps try the other fragrances too. Dettol Neutra Air is available in three scents - Fresh Morning Dew, Soft Water Lillies, and Citrus Breeze. It's good value and it's a good air freshener. 4 out of 5 stars!

        Disadvantages

        A good all-round air freshener

        ~~~~~~~~~ Orange spray ~~~~~~~~~ This air freshener is currently residing in the bathroom in my house, and as I used it today it seemed like a good time to write a review. The one I have cost £1 from Asda, and is slightly different to the ones pictured here as it comes in an orange aerosol can. The Neutra Air freshener is available in a range of scents but the one I have is Citrus Zest, and it promises to do more than just freshen the air. According to the blurb, Neutra Air fresheners also neutralise odours and kill 99.9% of bacteria when sprayed on surfaces. ~~~~~~~~~~ Chemical edge ~~~~~~~~~~ There is nothing special to say about the packaging of this air freshener, as it's a pretty average spray can with a button at the top. Pressing this lets out a fine mist of the spray, and it definitely has an orangey fresh fragrance. One thing I do notice about the scent though is that it does have a slight chemical undertone to it. This isn't too overpowering or particularly unpleasant but it does take the edge off the otherwise nice citrus scent of the spray. As I say I used this air freshener just today, and overall I like the fragrance of it. What I also like is that the smell does linger so you can still smell the freshness a while later - and luckily the slight chemical edge goes after a while! I found that I didn't need to use a lot of this to get rid of odours and to leave the rooms in the upstairs of my house smelling nice. ~~~~~~~~ In summary ~~~~~~~~ Although I am not 100% sold on the smell of this, overall I really like it and I think it works well at removing odours and freshening the rooms of my house. It costs £1 and upwards, and is also available in the fragrance Morning Dew.

        No more expensive than other brands and also has an extra action!

        I never knew there were products to disinfect air. But I should of guessed that if anybody was going to make such a product, it would be Dettol! The product itself is contained in a standard aerosol can which you will find almost all propelled air fresheners in - so nothing new there. The main difference with this product is what is inside the can. The product is primarily an air freshener. It acts initially just like any other air freshener; spraying a fragrance into the air to cover up any bad smell that may be lurking around. The spray then acts to apparently kill 99.9% of bacteria in the air - Dettol claims that many of smells in the house are caused by bacteria and killing them will neutralise the smell. I do not know if this is true or not but the air freshener certainly does seem to eliminate the majority of smells around the house. I like to use this air freshener in particular if somebody has a cold or other illness to hopefully protect myself or other people in the house from catching it too. Dettol is primarily a health company after all. (Yes, I know a cold is caused by a virus and not a bacteria and hence this spray will not affect it - I was giving a simple example only). I have only used the "Fresh Morning Dew" fragrance so cannot comment on the others. The reason I have only tried this one is because, as the title suggests, it is very fresh and leaves the house feeling new and rejuvenated. It smells like all of the other common "Fresh" fragrances that you find in every air freshener range which are usually named "Fresh Breeze" or "Fresh Linen", all of which are the same as each other usually. The fragrance lasts for a couple of hours before it begins to wear off and after it has gone the eliminations appears to have worked on the bad odours which were in its place beforehand.

          A decent air freshener

          Despite the fact that I have plenty of animals in my home (and I wouldn't have it any other way) the one thing that I actually hate is the smell. Of course, the pet odour smell is something all pet owners have to face but I hate the smell and the thought of people walking into my home and smelling that pet smell and being put off is enough for me to be OCD in cleaning my home generally every day I am cleaning something. To help I like to use air fresheners just to help with the smells that is associated with animals and generally every day living. One air freshener I have been using for a while now is the Dettol NeutraAir. I generally buy it when it is on offer and stock up as I find it economical that way. Dettol is a household brand known for their germ killing products from sprays to wipes and now to aerosols. Dettol is a brand I have been using for years and I find that it gives great results and is something I can rely on to help keep my home germ free especially with a child and pets running around. Dettol NeutraAir is an air freshener which has been specifically formulated to eliminate odours right at the source and therefore killing any smell that may occur. It also has the ability of killing 99.9% of bacteria in the air. The aim not only to keep your home germ free is also to provide your home with a fresh and clean scent which lasts longer. It is available in three varieties: Fresh Morning Dew, Soft Water Lilies and Citrus Breeze all in 300ml aerosol. My Dettol NeutraAir of choice is Soft Water Lilies partly because I preferred it over the others as I love the scent of lilies and as shallow as it may seem I preferred the pink packaging. The 300ml aerosol is just like any other air freshener there really is little difference. The green Dettol logo is on the front together with lovely images of lilies all the way down the front of the canister. On the back there is all the information you need about the product, how to use it, ingredients list and of course warning information. To use the Dettol NeutraAir you simply press down on the top of the plastic cap and it sprays out as a fine mist. The Soft Water Lilies fragrance wasn't quite as floral as I expected it or as sweet but it does have a very pleasant floralish type aroma but isn't as fragrant as the standard aerosols you can get in floral aromas. But for me as long as it managed to keep odours at bay I wasn't too fussed with how floral it was but it is incredibly pleasant and is actually quite refreshing. The fine mist goes quite a way but you can clearly see it when it comes out so you know where you are spraying the aerosol. The fragrance starts immediately which is nice and it does give that clean aroma that you are wanting. I find that I tend to use it after I have cleaned just as a top up especially when using bleach and wanting to get my home in a fresher aroma than the bleach aroma. The fragrance does last for quite some time after it has been sprayed which is obviously nice and that pet odour has almost vanished. My cats and dogs tend to sleep and eat in the utility room which is where I like to keep the odours at bay and the Dettol NeutraAir manages to keep the odours under control for quite a few hours after using it which is nice and it manages to get round the kitchen and downstairs easily with a few sprays. It does exactly the job that it claims and for an aerosol I am quite pleased that it lasts for as long as it does and leaves a pleasant slightly floral aroma behind. I do use other air fresheners around my home but this is one that I prefer and use a lot. I find that it works and helps keep odours at bay without any issues. As for the 99.9% bacteria free air I cannot of course say that it does or doesn't but I'd like to think that it does. For me, this is one product I will continue to buy as I like the results. Definitely a recommendation and I can award it 4 stars. ~ Useful Information ~ Brand: Dettol Price: From £1.50 Size: 300ml Availability: Supermarket, discount stores etc.

            an overpriced product, would expect more from a brand such as dettol

            As a standard addition to my bathroom, I like to have some spray for when my daughter or partner (not me of course!) do a smelly no.2! I bought this spray about a year ago when it was on offer for £1 in sainsburys (now retailing at around £1.70) and was keen as Dettol is a reputable brand and previously I have owned sprays such as febreeze and Oust and none of them have actually worked to eliminate the odour, merely masked the smell! - What it advertises - It advertises to kill 99.9% bacteria, as the worst smells are caused by bacteria. Dettol neutra air eliminates these odours leaving the area smelling pure and clean. Can be used on bin lids, toilets, pet areas, carpets, trainers and fabrics. Cannot be used on pets, leather surfaces, polished surfaces, or food preparation surfaces. - Does it work? - In laymens terms no. I have the citrus breeze scent, and whilst it has a nice airy, strong citrus scent to it, it does not mask unpleasant scents in no shape or form. As a matter of fact, it makes the smell worse, because a smelly no.2 combined with a strong lemony/lime (which smells artificial by the way!) scent just irritates my nose worse and gives me a headache on top of it all! My honest opinion would be in a dirty area, e.g. a smelly bin just give it a good clean and not attempt to mask it with this spray because it just doesn't work! In regards to the bathroom I now simply opt for opening a window and flushing some harpic down there which does a far better job at cleaning it! I have been extremely disappointed with this spray and it now sits in the bathroom just gathering dust.

            bacteria killing spray

            I am not really loyal to any particular brand when it comes to cleaning products buying whatever is on offer. When I saw that my local Waitrose were selling cans of Dettol neutral air for just 49 pence, I decided to buy a few. Dettol neutral air is an aerosol designed to eliminate unpleasant odours from the home. Dettol claim that it works by killing the airborne bacteria responsible for bad smells. They also claim that the spray will kill 99.9 % of bacteria. Using the spray is simple; just shake the can and spray a short burst into the air. The sprays come in a choice of three scents - citrus breeze, soft water lilies and fresh morning dew. I bought the fresh morning dew scent as that was the only one of offer. The cans have different coloured lids to help you identify the scent variants. The cans each hold 300 ml and usually cost around £1.50. Dettol say that this spray is suitable for use anywhere in the home, including the kitchen and bathroom. I only use the spray in the cloakroom and bathroom. The first thing I noticed after using the spray was the lack of any strong scent. As far as I am concerned this is a huge positive as I hate strong artificial chemical smells! The spray is very effective and getting rid of bad smells in the bathroom in record time! One or two sprays are enough to leave the bathroom or cloakroom smelling sweet again. Although I use this spray on a daily basis the can is still about half full after several months of use. Overall I am very impressed with this spray and wish I had bought a few more cans! Dettol neutral air is available in most supermarkets although not for the bargain price I paid!

              another product to be trusted from dettol!

              I recently got this as it was on offer for a £1, and even though I quite enjoy using neutrodol I was up for trying a different product! This is part of the dettol family, something which I have used for years because I love how trustworthy and clean the products are. This particular one comes in 3 different types of fragrance, and these are morning dew, soft water lilies and citrus breeze. Like some other products out there it doesn't just cover up the smell, but actually eliminates the germs leaving your home feeling clean. The product --> It comes in a 300ml aerosol, in a few different colours which reflect on their smell. I have the morning dew one. The fragrance does last around, and because it is nice and not over the top I don't mind. I feel like is lasts for a couple of months, but this just depends on how often you spray it. Having a dog it is a daily/2 day job to freshen up. As most smells come from bad bacteria, it is good to know that this actually gets rid of 99% of the bad germs that cause the smell in the first place. Morning dew can also be sprayed on surfaces and then wiped away after a few minutes, which is also handy if I have run out of my spray. The cost --> In ASDA this sometimes can be on offer for £1, but usually it is £1.70. Recommend, especially to help clean up surface germs too!

              Disadvantages

              This is an odour eater that just doesn't smell very nice

              Dettol Neutra Air Fresh Morning Dew Despite there being an abundance of 'spray devices' that you can place around your home, these spray cans are still very much a popular buy for the average home. When you have guests coming round, it is so easy to whip out a can and spray wildly around your head to desperately try and get your home smelling fresh and sometimes fruity. It can leave a long lasting pleasant smell that can easily brighten up anyone's day when they get a whiff. The question is can Dettol's Neutra Air Fresh Morning Dew do all of that? What is the 'Dettol' range? You'd be forgiven for thinking that the name Dettol is not normally associated with an air freshener. Usually you would pick up Dettol bleach to clean kitchen floors with but over the past couple of years Dettol has become so popular that it has expanded into kitchen work surface cleaners, antibacterial wipes and even hand wash for your bathroom. Owned by the Reckitt Benckiser group, Dettol first started off as an antiseptic cleaner, with its TCP sort of smell and murky yellow / brown liquid, but has now transformed into a well recognised brand on the high street, The Packaging The Air Freshener comes in a 300ml can of about 20cm tall; you know the usual size for this type of product. It is pastel / sky blue in colour and depicts a sort of meadow on the front in a very watercolour-esque design, assumingly to match the 'Fresh Morning Dew' aroma. I've got to be honest it isn't a very eye-catching design and Air Fresheners by Glade caught my attention first; the only reason I bought this was simply because I use other Dettol products. You'd be forgiven for thinking that it actually was a product made by Febreeze, because the design right down to the colour is almost identical, apart from the Dettol logo standing firm in green. On the reverse of the can it has a sort of checklist with ticks and crosses on where you can use this air freshener and where you cannot. Bin lids, Toilets, carpets, fabrics are allowed where as leather surfaces, food preparation areas and pets are definitely a no no, not that you need telling that the product is not intended to be used upon your pets directly. A quick four step by step guide tells you how to use this also. The Claim Now Dettol Neutra Air claims to be more than a simple air freshener. It doesn't just add a nice fragrance throughout your home, but also eliminates the odour, kills 99.9% of bacteria that clogs up the air causing bad smells but alas also eliminates 99.9% of bacteria when sprayed on to surfaces. It's almost like an air freshener, fabric cleaner and ventilator in one. I cannot simply write yes it works or no it doesn't here, simply because bacteria is something we cannot see. I will agree that it can eliminate bad odours throughout your home, so for the most part it can be safe to assume that it is true in its claims. Using the Air Freshener The lid has a button on top, which once pressed squirts out a spray of the product out of a small hole in the side of the lid. When using the product in the air, holding it upright and squirting will cause of small 'spray' to jet out in the direction you wish. It is a very thin light spray which means it can be used sparingly; a little goes a long way if you will. When used upon fabrics, such as your settee, holding it downwards and spraying over your furniture until a mist has appeared over it would do just the trick. The Smell I'm afraid this is where the downside appears. When purchasing an air freshener, for the most part it has to smell nice. That's one of if not the most important feature. Maybe I was the one that was wrong, but what do you think of in your own mind when reading 'Fresh Morning Dew'? I think of freshly cut grass, a sort of breezy summer fragrance that is fresh, not fruity but almost like walking out in the morning and knowing that it is going to be a great day, weather wise. Well I'm afraid that is definitely not what is inside this can. It smells absolutely awful! Very much like wet, soggy mould. A sort of offish smell that makes you screw your face up and say out aloud 'what is that smell?'. It does have a first impression of freshness, before the mould eventually takes over. The only plus side I can think of is that when sprayed in the air or even on your settee, the smell evaporates very quickly and is simply gone. You have to question though does this really satisfy your description of an air freshener? Surely you want your room smelling of its 'fragrance' for at least an hour or two? Overall, I would most definitely not recommend this air freshener. It smells disgusting; it most certainly doesn't lift your spirits or create a warm fresh smelling environment to welcome your guests into. Yes it offers other advantages such as killing bacteria and neutralising odours, but I would prefer to use three different products than using this one to do all three. In my own opinion, I expect an air freshener to smell wonderful, sadly this does not. It is most definitely not value for money at roughly £1.70 especially when its competitors offer better smelling, longer lasting equivalents that can cost much cheaper.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                It's 5 out of 5 for me

                Poo smells and it isn't a good smell. So in our bathrooms and toilets we keep an air freshener.... For those times when the pong catches the back of your throat or you want to disguise the fact that you have been voiding your bowel. I've always thought it a bit odd that you go into a toilet and find it smelling of citrus or vanilla or something - it's hardly a natural smell. I just want a neutral smell - something that isn't a smell at all. Of course, that's when Dettol Neutra Air comes into its own because it successfully eliminates bad smells without choking you with another unnatural smell. After you spray it (and you don't need much) it seems to suck up all the bad smell in the time it takes to wash and dry your hands and you can exit the toilet with your head held high - proud of the job you've done! The Dettol name is also a reassurance because we associate the brand with rendering things clean and safe and we all want our toilets to be clean and safe places. It claims to eliminate smells by killing odour forming bacteria. Dettol Neutra Air comes in a 400ml container (this particular one has 33% extra free). It is contained within a standard aerosol can. It is a solvent and is extremely flammable so appropriate care should be taken when using/storing this product. Rather than simply spray this product into the air, a big benefit is that you can also safely spray it on surfaces such that 99.9% of surface bacteria are killed. We only tend to use this product in our bathroom and toilets, but it is suited equally well to other smelly areas/things such as pet areas, trainers, household bins and the like so the product offers a degree of versatility that air fresheners alone do not provide. We like the stuff and would recommend it to others.

                  See review.

                  I like to think I manage to keep my house neat and tidy, but with two kids, one husband, two guinea pigs and a goldfish called Dolphin, sometimes the list of chores and the dirt and smells that go with them over take me! For my ten year wedding anniversary this year, my mum (in her infinite wisdom!), decided to fill a box full of cans of stuff, I had everything from tinned peanuts, through to can's of vodka and coke, with the subject of this review being one of those cans included. The product I will now review is - "Dettol - neutra air, citrus breeze". Well my first thoughts on this was that it was a surface spray, and with it being in my usual favourite of a fruity scent, I was of course really pleased. The spray comes in a stand up can holding 300ml of spray. The can is very distinctive looking, being a bright yellow colour with a matching colour plastic cap, which holds the spray nozzle. There is all the usual information to be found on the can, brand name, product name, scent and instructions for use, these are of course very important, as after reading them I realised that this is not only a surface spray, but also anti bacterial air freshener too. This spray is ideal for use in area's that are really smelly as once sprayed into the air, neutralises the bacteria in the air that causes bad smells, we have something similar for use at my place of work ( a hospital), though that stuff doesn't smell as lovely as this one does. The smell is a rich and tangy scent of lemon and lime, that not only covers but really does get rid of the bad smell, and I have yet to find an odour that this hasn't worked on! I usually give my settee and curtains a weekly spray with this stuff and it makes them smell lovely for a good day afterwards, also this can be used on any soft furnishings rugs and carpets, as long as it doesn't come into direct contact with your skin, which to me simply means don't spray onto yourself or your clothes. This can also be used to combats smells and bacteria on bin lids, in bathrooms and even in trainers, but should never be sprayed on kitchen work surfaces or anywhere it may touch skin or could potentially be ingested by human or pet, though is perfect for keeping pet areas fresh, we have two rather smelly guinea pigs, that I clean regularly but do smell a bit strong after being in a house with central heating on! The spray itself comes out as a vapour, so if sprayed onto surfaces dries very quickly, which again is the same when sprayed into the air, nothing worse than spraying your room and it settling on the laminate flooring and you slipping on it! Price wise and availability this is currently being sold in Asda for £1.00 a can, though full price I think it retails for around the £1.50 mark, there at east three different scents to choose from, but for me the fruity scents always win hands down.

                    does the job effectively

                    I am not a fan of air fresheners and I usually prefer natural fresh air from outside. But we do need antibacterial air fresheners for removing bad smell in the air, to kill those bacteria hidden in the odour and help us keep the house smelling fresh instantly in situations when we have guests arriving. I happened to buy this product for the first time recently during my weekly supermarket shopping. We were going to have a dinner party at my house and we were looking for air freshener that would help us keep the house smelling fresh and help us to maintain hygiene. I picked up Dettol neutra air citrus breeze as Dettol is a brand I trust, I personally find citrus smell refreshing and it was mentioned on the pack that it kills 99.9% bacteria. The price was £1.00 for 300ml bottle in Asda. Apart from citrus breeze it is also available in two other fragrances Pure Air and Sparkling Waters. The liquid can be sprayed from the bottle lid. We can see the white liquid coming out from the hole and it readily dissolves in the air and then comes the lemony smell although not exactly as a fresh lemon smell. I was recently cleaning my dustbin which is always kept in the garden. The surface of the dustbin was filled with rubbish and the recent rains had made the smell horrible. When I started to clean the dustbin the odour was so bad that I started to get vomiting sensation. I remembered the Dettol neutra air that was in the shelf which we had bought recently and I sprayed the liquid over the bin. Within no time the bad odour was neutralized and I was able to clean the dustbin with no problem. This product indeed makes messy jobs like this easy. This product can be used on bin lids, toilets, pet areas, carpets, trainers and fabrics. It should NOT BE USED on pets, leather surfaces, polished surfaces, food or food preparation, fabrics with direct skin. This Product should be kept out of the reach of children and should not be kept near hot surroundings such as ovens, fireplaces etc. I am very satisfied with its capacity to neutralise bad odour but the smell is not that pleasant as a lemon. I personally recommend this product and give it 4 dooyoo stars.

                      Disadvantages

                      Good value price.

                      I bought this odour eliminator for only £1 for a 300ml can from my local shop on special offer and thought I would give it a try as I had not bought it before and since it was a good price for a branded one, I just thought it made sense and save money. It comes in a can and has a push spray applicator with a lid and the smell is quite pleasant, and has a slight fragrance to it and it refreshes the room perfectly, I am always cleaning and I love my home to smell nice and fresh always as I have pets and so keeping it fresh constantly is my aim always. It eliminates those nasty odours in the air and I bought 2 at the time and the ones I bought were the Fresh Morning Dew fragrance and the reason I bought this one was because I have a sick cat at the moment and she is tending to stay indoors more of the time and her pet area needs a nice refreshing smell once she has left it. This one does the job perfectly in my opinion and I keep one in the bathroom and I also spray it lightly inside my kitchen bin and on the lid part as it refreshes it once cleaned and it smells nice and fresh and I also use it in my bedroom and spray it onto the cushions on my bed and when I close the door and return, I can smell the freshness and I think it is ideal in hallways without windows or doors as in my home I do not have any windows directly into the hallway and so when I spray this it has a nice clean smell and I am happy with the results. Many odours are bacteria and this one eliminates the bacteria to leave a nice pure, clean smelling room. This also can be used onto some surfaces but not food preparation ones and also not onto leather or polished surfaces and not onto fabrics that are in direct sunlight. My hubby sprayed some near his trainers as they were a little smelly lol, and the smell was better in my opinion in the shoe cupboard lol. It is easy to use, just spray into the air in the middle of a room or 15 - 20 cm from a surface and the product does the rest. I do recommend this one, and it is a good quality spray and I will be buying it again, especially when it is on offer again as I have not been disappointed with it at all and it comes different fragrances but am reviewing the Fresh Morning Dew and is different to the ones show on the site and so I think it is maybe a new one since the site placed this review on and I am pleased I bought it and I will be deffinately be buying it again in the future as it is an excellent quality spray. I give it 5 stars. Thank you for reading my review.
