Febreze Mist & Refresh
Advantages: Fine mist anti-odour product
I must admit, over the years of buying Febreze trigger spray odour-neutraliser bottles and fabric freshener sprays I had become quite sick of that classic "Febreze smell". I recall Ariel started adding Febreze to their washing powders so the scent of Febreze to me became associated with trying to mask odours- and I disliked that Febreze smell so I stopped buying it.
A few months ago a friend re-introduced me to this when I asked what they used as their house always smelled lovely- to my slight surprise the answer was Febreze Mist & Refresh. Now the container itself is a sort of half can, half trigger spray hybrid. The bottom part is like your average spray air-freshner, but the top section has a trigger to pull. When you squeeze the trigger, there is no big powerful aerosol 'SHHHHHHHHHK' effect/ sound- instead it is more like a spritz- quite a weak 'ffffffffffft' noise and a fine mist spray.
I use this to get rid of cooking smells as there is no door between my kitchen and living room, so if I cook anything like a roast or bacon etc the whole house stinks afterwards and I noticed my hair started to pick up cooking smells so now, after I have been cooking, I spritz some of this Febreze mist around the kitchen and living room and it really does do what it says on the tin (neutralises odours).
The scent it gives out is really fresh smelling and quite uplifting. Only a few spritzes in the corners of the room will disperse and will leave your room smelling fresh for a good 24 hours if not longer. I used some i the middle of last week and a friend popped over 3 days later and said how fresh my house was smelling so I would credit this to the Febreze.
This is quite pricey as far as air freshener type products go. I have just done a quick search and this item is selling on EBay for £4.99 a bottle! It is currently on offer for £2 at ASDA but is selling for £3 at Tesco/ Sainsbury's. So it is double what I would normally look to pay for something like this. My bottle has lasted for several months now and although I don't use it daily, I do cook quite often and I like to use it when I am cleaning the house to just give the place a little boost.
The manufacturer is P&G
The product comes in a variety of scents: cotton, apple spice, coastal breeze, blossom & Breeze and winter evening.
The pack has the usual warnings on about keeping it away from children and not spraying it near your eyes.
Interestingly the pack also states "Air fresheners do not replace good hygiene practices". I am now wondering who thought they did to result in P&G feeling compelled to write that on the pack!
The product should be used with caution by anyone who is sensitive to perfumes or allergic to perfumed products. Also it contains a non-flammable propellant (I assume this means it is better for the environment but it does not say this anywhere on the can).
Overall, I would buy this again but only if I see it on offer somewhere as it is pricey (one star removed for the £3 price tag!).
