Febreze Mist & Refresh

Advantages: Fresh, long-lasting and economical
Disadvantages: Does not eliminate very strong cooking odours but otherwise excellent
As someone who lives in a fairly busy house occupied by up to seven people and a cat and dog, I understand the difficultly of masking smells. Not only this but both of my parents smoke, as do many of the visitors to my house, much to my dismay often inside the front room. This means that on a daily basis the house gets a build up of musty, unfresh smells that constantly bothers me as I am quite house proud and pretty damn pretentious about cleanliness too.
For many years, my Mum and I have purchased a huge variety of aerosols in the attempt to hide away unattractive smells. The majority of them do the job fair enough, keeping away the odours for a few hours at most. However, as I said, I can be proud and so it wasn't enough to just 'mask' the smells, I wanted them gone.
That's where Febreze Mist and Refresh comes in. Each scent is distinct and unoffensive to my sensitive sense of smell, combining odour removal with a light fragrance to truly refresh your home. My favourite of the range is Blossom and Breeze which, although perhaps not entirely exact as it is very difficult to describe a smell particularly on line, I would describe as a light, somewhat feminine scent. I use it all over my house and can still feel its effects well into the day after having cleaned in the morning. Even with persistent smokers in the house, the smell of cigarettes rarely overtakes that of the Febreze aerosol and so it is definitely and excellent, efficient purchase.
However, it is important to note that despite my singing of praises, the Febreze Mist and Refresh brand is only an aerosol and so it is not going to eliminate all odours no matter how much you abuse the can (I say this as my Mum in particular is one to just keep on spraying until she feels competent that the smell is gone, choking us all). There will obviously be tricky, strong smells that the spray can't get rid of, such as curries, but this can still be dealt with easily by waiting for the bulk of it to fade before then spraying (saving you have the can, and quite a bit of money). This may seem an obvious solution but I still felt it worth noting, as like I said, I come from a family of aerosol abusers, and I'm not proud.
This is ideal for medium sized rooms and only requires one or two clicks in order to freshen up and yet not overpower you with a pleasant fragrance. It is highly economical and despite being only 300ml lasts much longer than ordinary sprays. Look around and you'll probably find you can pick it up almost anywhere for a reasonable price. Definitely one I'd recommend.
Summary: A cheap, efficient little spray that helps to freshen up your house or car
