Tesco Value Air Freshener

Tesco value Air freshener!!! Yet another really "Exciting" product to review here then....
Well it may not be a very exciting product to review but, nevertheless, it is of a product type that a large number of us do use on a regular basis, so is worthy of comment.
This Tesco Air freshener, from its bargain basement "Value" range, is supplied in a conventional Aerosol format, with which we are all familiar. The can is yours on handing over the princely sum of 28 pence to Messrs Tesco ltd... It is certainly cheap enough, and is available at all Tesco stores.
So what do you get for your 28 pennies then?
You get a typical Value range, blue and white "Logoed"; can containing 300ml - what ever that means, of Air freshener. The can actually measures 10" high and 2" in diameter - that means more to me than 300ml does.
Operation is straightforward as you would expect, shake well, point and spray - no surprises there. The spray itself is quite tight in dispersion and quite directional. It is a little "Wet" compared to some other products but that is not really a problem as by the time it has settled it has flashed off and appears to cause no problems.
The smell / fragrance is, shall we say different! In my opinion it is not a particularly nice or comforting fragrance, but is acceptable. It is certainly better than the majority of smells that you are trying to mask - I think........ Mind you a Bacon Buttie smells far superior to this stuff, so I perhaps better back track a little on that point.
Please do not expect this product to compare favourably with some of the "Top of the range" products available out there as it would be an unfair comparison. If it cost £2 a can then maybe it should be better, but remember it is only 28p - it ain't gonna be that brilliant - but it isn't that bad either. Horses for courses come to mind.
There are copious amounts of Instructions / directions /warnings printed on the can. Most of which are common sense and statutory mumbo jumbo, allied to Governmental / EU drivel. Read and be bored.
The only bits which matter, in my opinion, are as follows:-
Do not spray directly onto Furniture and Fabrics.
The product is EXTREMELY INFLAMMABLE (Contains Butane and Propane).
Protect the pressurised can from direct Sunlight and temperatures over 50 deg C, do not expose to naked flames etc.
Do not spray the product near eyes and face.
Keep out of reach of Children and Animals.
The rest is *********** (I'm being polite again!).
So in conclusion, it's cheap and cheerful, does what it says it does - just about. But think, you can buy seven or eight of these cans as opposed to one can of some other products. Are they really worth THAT much extra? Perhaps not.
Certainly if you are on a tight budget then I reckon this product is well worth your 28 pennies. If money is not tight or you really must have a "Super" smelling fragrance then this Value Air freshener is maybe not for you.
"You pays your money and you takes your choice" has never been more appropriate than when it is applied to this product.
Summary: Worth a punt at the price. If you don't like it, you've only wasted a few pence.
