Advantages: Cheap, easy to open, light scent that is not too overpowering, few different scents available.
Disadvantages: Scent runs out quite quick, cheaper products do the same job, seems to like catching dust.
I love to keep my home smelling and looking good at all times and I use numerous products to scent my home. I use scented candles, air fresheners, gels and almost anything else I can find that is said to keep a home smelling nice. I use 'solid' gels in my bathroom as I find that these keep working for a few weeks, are easy to wipe dust off and they blend in well enough in the corner of my bathroom.
This is a white plastic air freshener with a solid gel inside, the colour of the gel is dependant on the scent chosen and in the past I have used Lavender and Lily of the Valley, with Lavender being my preferred favourite for my bathroom. This has a thick bottom so I usually just stand it up on a ledge beside my toilet. To use this I simply have to peel off a sticky label from the front which then exposes the numerous holes on the front and the air freshener gel starts releasing its scent.
The scent of this is reasonable without being overpowering and while lavender can sometimes seem a little 'old lady' or 'sleepy' I find that this is just enough to keep my bathroom smelling nice when visitors first enter it. You can definitely tell that this is lavender and I do not really pick up any other scent just a light lavender scent.
The gel inside these shrinks down over time and while it does not keep the scent going for months I find that I forget to replace them straight away as while the scent is no longer obvious there is really no huge visual reminder such as an empty container, as you would get with different air fresheners.
Overall I would rate these as an average 3/5. The scent is not strong, it runs down quickly and there are much better products out there, even gels like these, available for cheaper and that work better.
Summary: An average solid air freshener from Glade.
