SC Johnson Oust
Advantages: Masks smells
Disadvantages: Not powerful enough
Air freshener is something I have found myself buying more and more of recently. My cat, Duke seems to be spending more and more time toiletting where he shouldnt be and this is obviously not a very pleasant problem to have to deal with!
When shopping in Tesco with my Mum the other day I mentioned I needed some air freshener. She immediately suggested I tried this one because she found it to work really well. As it was on offer for just £1 I bought it. I do believe other scents are available but the one I got was the version shown above which is called Garden Fresh.
Oust is supposed to be different from other air fresheners because it is supposed to remove smells rather than simply mask them. This therefore suggests that the smells will be removed permanantly rather than just temporarily covered.
To use the air freshener you simply press down the top of the can and spray the freshener where you want it. Initially I found the pump to work really well and it dispensed a good amount of product. However, about half way into using the bottle the pump began to slow down and it felt like there wasnt much of the product left even though I knew there was. Therefore it took longer to get a good amount of the product out of the tin.
The product comes out in a fine mist so it is easy to make sure you get the amount you want. The scent is garden fresh. It has a fresh and clean smell to it with a hint of trees and plants. I'm not overly keen on the scent to be entirely honest but it is ok.
I found I had to use a lot more of the spray than I thought I would in order to cover up bad odours. In addition to this, even when covered I needed to use more of the spray later on as it just didnt last. Since using this spray I have bought an Airwick version and I have been using this and finding it to be much more effective.
Overall I think this spray is ok. I would buy it again but not for masking very bad smells as it simply doesnt cover them for long enough, However, it is a good quality air freshener and it does mask less obvious smells.
