Febreze Mist & Refresh
Advantages: Smells lovely, eliminates the odours, reasonable price
Now I'm not normally the sort of person who believes the claims in television adverts so I wasn't impressed by the latest advert for Febreze spray when I was told that it was a new product with special technology to eliminate odours rather than masking them. Yeah right!
Then two things happened - firstly I read a review on Ciao about this product; it wasn't very detailed but the reviewer was impressed. Secondly I received a voucher from Tesco's offering me an extra 200 points if I purchased Febreze spray.
I decided to try it and see if it stood up to it's claims, providing of course that it wasn't too expensive!
That way I could then request a new product here on Dooyoo and tell you all about it one way or the other!
I looked in Tesco's and found the Febreze spray priced at £2.49 for a 300ml can. As I had a voucher for 200 points which equates to £2 in shopping coupons the product was going to cost me a net price of 49p so I bought it.
It comes in a can which is about nine and a half inches in height with a plastic top that has a lever beneath it. If you take a look at the picture at the top of the review you will see what I mean - it's difficult to describe.
To use the spray you just squeeze the lever against the main body of the can like a trigger and the mist comes out of a small hole above the lever.
The front of the can has the words 'Febreze Mist & Refresh - Eliminates odours doesn't mask them - cotton fresh'.
Cotton Fresh is the fragrance of the mist I chose. I have since taken a look at the website at www.febreze.co.uk and there are currently 4 different fragrances which are:
Blossom & Breeze
Apple Spice (limited edition)
The idea is that the patented Febreze odour elimination technology traps and neutralises the bad smells rather than just masking them. The mist itself is water based and is specially designed to give a light, subtle fragrance.
Apparently the difference between Febreze Mist & Refresh and other air fresheners is that the mist contains a non-flammable nitrogen propellant, which when combined with the new style trigger system creates larger droplets in the mist expelled into the air giving a longer lasting scent.
Okay so that's all the technical stuff and now we all know what it is supposed to do BUT does it fulfil the promises?
The answer to that is a resounding YES!
I usually use Air Wick (Haze) 2 in 1 spray which I find very overpowering and quite a cloying sort of fragrance. I also find that the smell in the air is a mixture of the original smell and the smell of the air freshener, which isn't particularly appealing.
I tried Febreze in the bathroom - I won't go into details of the smell that I was trying to get rid of but my husband had eaten curry the day before and it wasn't pleasant!
Anyway one short spray of Febreze and all I could smell was a lovely fresh smell wafting through the air. It worked! The bad smell had completely disappeared and the smell of the Febreze remaining was light and fresh and not at all overpowering. This remained in the air for a reasonable time and when it had gone the original smell was nowhere to be smelt!
So what I am saying is that this product does exactly what it says on the tin and on the television adverts - now that is something you can't say very often.
I will certainly be buying Febreze Mist & Refresh from now on!
