~Glade Fresh Laundry~
Glade is a range of household products from SC Johnson Ltd. I will be discussing my views on the 'Fresh Laundry' room fragrance spray but other scents are available.
This room fragrance spray is presented in a tall, silver aerosol cannister - a simple design but cheap in appearance. Glade promoted this room fragrance has having a scent of white flowers and rose which combine together to smell like freshly washed laundry. The important product information is noted on the cannister including warnings of this being a flammable product and to keep it away from children.
~Where To Buy~
This is one of the cheaper room fragrance sprays and is priced around £1.00 for a 300ml cannister. It can be bought from poundshops, bargain stores and local corner shops.
I always ensure that my home smells fresh and clean. As well as cleaning it and keeping it tidy, I spend a small fortune on scented products - candles, air fresheners, reed diffusers etc. Anyway, I normally opt for Febreze for my choice of air freshener spray but only buy it when it is on offer. When I ran out unexpectedly last month, I needed a replacement can and refused to pay £2.99 for Febreze from my local Premier store so came home with a cannister of Fresh Laundry.
I have had mixed experiences with Glade products but at £1.00 for 300ml, this is affordable and not too bad to use - it doesn't beat Febreze though! The cannister is easy to store and operate though past experiences haven't confirmed that the push down dispenser often seizes up. Thankfully, this particular cannister hasn't caused any issues. I find that a sharp and quick push down on the dispenser is more than sufficient.
An instant burst of scent is blasted into the air and reminds me of a white deodorant. The liquid appears to be quite 'heavy' and quickly absorbs into the air. I haven't noticed any staining of my furniture or fabrics from general use of this but do ensure that I spray it in to the middle of the room. I do find that the liquid evaporates before hitting the floor which is a good thing for us as most of our home has wooden flooring and there is no potential slipping hazzards after spraying this.
The scent of this air freshener is quite harsh at first and in smaller rooms like the bathroom or our enclosed hallway, the scent can be overpowering and cough inducing - not ideal if you suffer from breathing difficulties in my opinion and not one to spray whilst anyone is sitting in the vincitity including kids and pets! I generally do just spray this around each room once I have completed my household chores and find it works fine for this purpose.
After a short while, the scent lightens and becomes more appealing but isn't the nicest smelling air freshener or the most natural smelling either. It doesn't have that 'fresh air through the window' aroma but it does leave my home smelling clean and with a light, floral scent which is quite generic as no specific floral notes jump out at me. It does smell like laundry that has been washed through with a basic detergent with no fabric softener! I find that it lightly covers up any household smells in the bathroom and kitchen but doesn't eliminate them like my favourite air freshener does. The scent and freshening aspect is short lived - half and hour at best before the scent is gone. I wouldn't rely on it to keep pet smells at bay but it may mask them for a short while.
Not the best room fragrance by a long shot but it isn't too bad. It is fine for us as a back up but isn't one I would choose to buy regularly as I prefer a more natural smell. It is cheap and one 300ml cannister lasts a good few weeks. It is nothing particular special but it does the job of giving my home a quick blast of freshness.
Thanks for reading :)
