Glade solid air freshener
I really do love having a nice smelling home and for that reason I tend to buy a lot of air fresheners. Most of my purchases always come when I am in my local Poundland as the branded items are always a fraction of the price when compared to buying them in the supermarket. However these Glade solid air fresheners can be picked up for under a pound if you find them on a special offer. I know I shouldn't buy things like this as my other half seems to be allergic to just about anything and items such as this really do make him sneeze.that said his sneezing bothers me less than having a stinky home.
The glade solid airfreshner can come I a few different aromas and most of which do actually smell rather old lady like and I steer away from the lavender scented one as this seems to be the worst culprit. The lily one is not so bad and this is generally which one I opt for. For under £1 it's not a bad price for an item that does leave a nice aroma in the room it is situated in.
The solid glade freshened comes in a white plastic case and it has a sticky label on the front which needs to be removed in order for the aroma of the air freshened to be released. This is easily taken off and once it is the fragrance is really rather strong. The solid air freshener will last a good few weeks and in all this time I find that the strength of the aroma will keep diminishing somewhat. More often than not the solid lump inside the plastic case ( which is a actually more of a jelly like substance) will turn into a rock like product and it will have shrunk down in size. Once it has turned rock like however it won't shrink any more or produce any aroma so you know it's time to throw it away.
As far as air freshener products go, this isn't really one of the better ones you can get. The choice of aromas is not that vast and the ones that are on offer are not especially wonderful. However it is cheap and cheerful and I do often get them for the entrance hall and need the stairs at home. I like the fact that the plastic casing is recyclable and there isn't too much waste or an aerosol can to get rid once the product has been used up.the look of the air freshener is somewhat inoffensive and the fragrance created by it does freshen up the room for a short period.
On the whole I think I will continue to buy these glade solid air fresheners as and when the fancy takes me. They are a fair price for a fair product and I can't really ask much more of them. I think a fair product like this deserves a fair score of 3 out of 5 stars and a mild recommendation.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read
