Dettol Neutra Air

Dettol Neutra Air
Advantages: Nice and fairly fresh smelling, can also be used on surfaces
Disadvantages: None really, although can't be sprayed directly on pets!
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.
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!
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!
Summary: A good way to eliminate toilet smells!
