Febreze Thai Orchid Fabric Refresher
Advantages: removes odours, smells lovely
I have used fabric freshener for a number of years as I find it very useful for removing those everyday smells from clothes, leaving them feeling freshly washed. This I find is especially useful when I have been cooking strong smelling food such as curries. On several occasions I have left my coat or jumper nearby which would then pick ip the scent and reek of fried onion and spices. Whilst these smell great in my kitchen I do not really want the world to know what I had for dinner the night before! It is not really practical to wash the clothing on occasions such as these so I usually reach for a fabric freshener to neutralise those odours and leave it smelling fresh.
Febreze is a premium brand of fabric freshener and used to come in just the one standard scent. However in recent months they have introduced a new range of smells. One of these is the Thai Orchid variety, which I recently purchased and will be reviewing today. This is available in all major supermarkets and priced at around £2.80.
The freshener comes in a hot pink plastic bottle, which contains 500ml of the product. The front label has a picture of a thai orchid flower. The product is dispensed through a trigger pump at the top of the bottle. The nozzle has a lock on it so that it has to be twisted to the 'on' position before it can be used. I think this is a useful safety feature if you have children around.
According to the label the freshener is inspired by the delicate fragrance of fresh thai orchids for a moment of pure relaxation and zen. It goes on to explain that zen is peace and enlightenment and using this spray leaves behind the chaos of odours to leave things smelling truly fresh. It certainly sounds promising!
To use turn the nozzle to the 'On' position. Spray evenly on the garment from a distance of 15-30 cm until the fabric is slightly damp. Leave this to dry and as it does so the odours will disappear. I first used this on a jumper that had been left in the dining room and although it had been washed it had picked up some of the smells from the kitchen and so didn't have that freshly washed smell any more. I squirted the product all over the jumper and let it dry in a different room.
It took around 15 minutes to completely dry and as it was doing so I noticed the very pleasant smell that this freshener has. I don't really know what a thai orchid smells like so can't comment on how realistic this scent is but to me it smelt quite tangy and crisp with a hint of sweetness. It was quite mouthwatering! I could also see that the freshener had worked really well to remove rather than just mask the odour. The fabric smelt like it has just come out of the wash and I couldn't detect any odour. The scent also didn't fade away quickly which was great too.
I also use this regularly on my curtains and my sofa gets a weekly treatment with this to freshen it up too. The freshener can also be used on bedding and rugs/carpets. It is not recommended for use on leather, suede or silk. Overall I am really pleased with this freshener. It smells lovely and removes nasty odours rather than just mask them and I have no hesitation in recommending this.
