Glade Clean Linen Air Freshener
Advantages: Nice smell, lasts well, good value
Disadvantages: Ever so slightly unpleasant on first spraying
Air Freshener in the toilet is one of life's necessary evils. As I've said in previous air freshener reviews, I have had two air fresheners on the go since I purchased the Asda Smartprice air freshener which is lasting me for years since I try to avoid using it wherever possible - it's not THAT bad, but then it's not good either.
Having put my Mulled Wine air freshener back in the cupboard to bring back out next Christmas, I put the Glade Clean Linen Air freshener (produced by Johnson) back on top of my toilet alongside the Smartprice one. Therefore this is the air freshener which I currently use mostly when eliminating those toilet odours!
This 300ml can (so it's bigger than some) is an attractive white and light blue colour. There's a picture of an open window blowing a breeze onto the curtains and a pile of what I think are bed sheets (that'll be the linen!)...it makes me think of spring as I write this in the freezing cold winter.
This can has the nozzle as part of the lid rather than being something you have to remove. While I find that these sometimes fail, I have had no problems with this Glade air freshener. It is a pretty sturdy and good quality can.
---Using the air freshener---
As the instructions on the back of the can say "Shake can well. To freshen the air, point can towards centre of room and spray. This product is not recommended for use on fabric" (so don't go spraying on your dirty linen in an attempt to make it appear clean!) I am pleased to say that there is no leaking or dripping as there can be with some air fresheners.
As with all air fresheners there are a number of warnings on the can, such as its flammability, keeping out of the reach of children and that solvent abuse can kill instantly. These warnings are written in a wide variety of languages.
---The smell and other info---
As far as toilet air fresheners go, I think that this isn't a bad one at all. Although the smell is fairly artificial, it's not as bad as some. It certainly isn't one of those chemically smelling ones which makes you choke!
The can claims that this spray provides instant freshness and long lasting fragrance. I'd say that it is ever so slightly unpleasant right at the beginning (but then, it's better than the toilet smells it's covering!), but it soon mellows into quite a nice fresh smell which does the job of eliminating odours. I prefer the smell of real clean linen, but this isn't bad as a substitute. It does have a slight floral hint to it. As the can claims I think it does last pretty well.
I am not brand loyal where it comes to air fresheners. However, I would recommend this. You don't need to spray a great deal, so it will last you well. At the current cost of £1.20 in Asda and £1.23 in Tesco, it's pretty good value. You might even be able to find it cheaper elsewhere.
There are other products in the Glade range which use this fragrance (such as touch n fresh dispensers), so they might be worth bearing in mind if you use that sort of thing! Glade also have different fragrances available as air fresheners, so perhaps bear in mind if Clean Linen doesn't take your fancy.
I'll give this 4 out of 5 stars!
