Does it really eliminate odours?

Febreze Mist & Refresh
Advantages: Eliminated odours, fresh, not overpowering
Disadvantages: Not a long-lasting fragrance
We have been using this air freshener for a couple of years now. This has probably given away that we quite like it. In particular, the aerosol action of this product is far gentler than traditional aerosols which make the loud spraying noise. This makes it far less scary to our cat who will sprint out of the room if we spray one of the other noisy ones.
We mainly buy the "Cotton Fresh" fragrance in this range as, just like its name suggests, it has the freshest fragrance and smells pretty neutral so to avoid being overpowering or too noticeable. I always feel that if you walk into a house and can smell the air freshener really strongly then they have just sprayed it and they are therefore possibly covering up something. None of the this range would give me that impression if sprayed as although they do leave a nice fragrance, it is not too strong.
The main action of this air freshener, I do not think, is its own fragrance, It is intended to eliminate odours from the air. I have to say that it does appear to work quite well. I can spray it into a rather smelly room and immediately all I can smell is the febreze fragrance, however, this fragrance will only last a few hours. BUT, after this few hours you would usually expect to smell the smelly room again - most of the time you cannot (or at least not as bad) therefore suggesting that it does actually eliminate odours from fabrics. No one in the house smokes so I personally have no idea how well it works with smoke smells but I have heard positive things about it in regards to this.
Summary: If you want to eliminate rather than mask odours, get this!
