      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good odour killer that leaves a pleasant smell behind.

      I'm reviewing my Febreze Mist and Refresh, in the Blossom and breeze fragrance.
      It cost me £1.99 in my local Chemist and is available in many Chemists and all supermarkets .
      It is a Procter and Gamble UK product .
      Mine is the pink one from the stock photo above.
      ____________________________

      First let me say I hate using air fresheners that you spray in a room. I hate the way they drift through the air and then settle down to leave a tackiness on wooden floors or furniture.
      But then we had a minor crisis and on looking for a solution I decided that Febreze might just do the job.
      The crisis arose when my brother in law asked my husband to help him empty his old heating oil tank because they were getting gas installed. Dumb and Dumber and a recipe for disaster.
      Idiotic brother in law opted(unwittingly one must assume) to decant the oil into a leaking container.
      Husband dear opted to wear his practically new £60 shoes (reduced to £35 in TK Max),despite having gardening/DIY shoes sat under his nose in the utility room for these situations.
      The inevitable happened.....oil leaked in puddle all round my husbands shoes. Not that he told me. I came in and went "Why can I smell heating oil all over the house ?" . I went a bit psycho to be honest because I was fuming mad at both brothers. Idiots!
      Anyway I washed the soles of the shoes thoroughly at least three times scrubbing them thoroughly with washing up liquid and a nail brush and left them outside to air, but three weeks on they were still smelling and now residing in the garden shed...... that's when I opted to try Febreze in an effort to rescue them.

      =USING FEBREZE=

      This cost me just £1.99 and it comes in a very generous 300ml aerosol can with a rather unusual trigger spray that I've not come across before. I just looked closer at the trigger spray through a little gap and it seems to be just an extra plastic top added on top of the can that presses on the old style original button spray nozzle...... so that the trigger-pulling does the work your finger used to do . Quite clever actually and very attractive too . So the spray trigger is quite similar to the ones on kitchen cleaning sprays but is not detachable in the way those are. The trigger has operated smoothly every time I've used this product, with no blockages or 'dribbling'.
      The can is about 10" tall and tapered toward the top and stands out from other air fresheners on shape alone.
      The manufacturers don't seem to call it an air freshener anyway, but rather "an odour eliminator" .
      I've already explained why I needed this, so I got the still-smelly offending shoes from the shed and held each one at arms length while spraying liberally with the Febreze all over the soles, then I put them back in the shed. I checked them next day and the oil smell had reduced vastly....but was still definitely there. So I zapped them thoroughly again and left them for two days. Next time I checked them the smell had almost gone. They were at least fit for wearing again, even indoors, whereas previously they stank to high heaven.
      Now 2 months on the shoes are fine with no lingering odour of heating oil whatsoever .

      I've since used it a few times in the utility room where Kizzy dog and Freddy cat sleep , but I'm not keen on using it too much there in case either pet gets a reaction. To be fair they haven't so far, but even so there is no point in exposing them to chemicals any more than I need to, and anyway it's a fact of life that pets leave pet odours around where they sleep.

      The fragrance of this product is just wonderful. Really really sweet and floral with a strong Lilac smell ,rather reminiscent of parma violets, which I love. The fragrance lingers nicely for an hour or more, so that as well as eliminating nasty odours it leaves a delightfully fresh floral aroma in it's wake.
      The manufacturers say it "leaves a light and subtle scent behind", which I agree is a good simple description.

      I really am very impressed with this spray . They are totally correct to call it an odour eliminating spray rather than an air freshener because in my experience it fulfills it's odour eliminating promise, and if it eased our oil stench to such a degree then it is pretty powerful stuff.
      I checked in Tesco and this costs £3 there, so I'm happy that I got mine cheaper in an independent Chemist.


      Would I recommend this ? Whole heartedly . And I have no hesitation in giving it 5 stars .

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I am happy with this and will buy it again

        This is a lovely air freshening mist from Febreze. It is a 200 ml can, with a trigger spray in "Cotton Fresh" although it does come in other fragrances.

        I bought this in my local Tesco for £2.00 which I think is a not bad price.

        The spray is a continuous spray type, as in you depress it once and it carries on spraying, rather than having to spray-spray-spray. It is a white can with a pale blue trigger on top and the can has the normal logo and this particular scent has pictures of fluffy little cotton fluffs which is quite sweet

        The fragrance is quite unique - I find a lot of air fresheners kind of smell the same really but this is lovely and light and clean smelling. Of course I am only reviewing the cotton fresh fragrance here - Febreze does make this in other fragrances

        I will definitely be buying this again as I love my home smelling clean and this certainly helps (that and actually cleaning it of course!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not for me.

        Whilst in Asda casually looking at all their air fresheners, I decided to purchase this as it was known to reduce and get rid of odours. With having an indoor cat, our room with the litter tray in can get a little, shall we say, fragrant? At times. I thought that this would help so decided to buy it at an ok price of £2 to try it.

        There were many different scents available, and although i probably shouldn't, I sprayed them all in the shop first to see which ones I preferred. Some were a bit too fruity for me so I ended up with 'Himalayan Heights' which is more of a neutral scent and smelt very clean.

        Once home, I immediately sprayed it around and was happy with it at first, until it came as more of a regular thing to do. I noticed the scent of it wasn't as nice as when i first bought it, maybe I had gone off it or simply sprayed it too much, but either way I didn't like it anymore. I noticed that because of the way it sprays (i.e its comes out as mist) it dropped to the floor very quickly and left a wet residue of the sofa and floor which wasn't ideal.

        I don't think I would buy this again as it although it did mask the smell, it didn't mask it for very long and I was disappointed. I think I will stick with my Air-wick automatic sprays.

        The spray came in a tall 300ml bottle with an easy spray pump that you just press your fingers against. It looks attractive in its ocean blue colour and clearly states what it is on the front. This is available to buy in most supermarkets and shops that stock home accessories and therefore easy to get hold of.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          The only air fresheners I will use.

          I like to have a can of air freshener available in each of my toilets for those times when certain odours need covering up and an open window just isn't doing the job.

          In the upstairs toilet I have a can of Febreze Mist & Refresh, Moonlight Vanilla. I brought this from Tesco really cheaply as I had a voucher and they were also on a half price offer.

          The can is a very feminine lilac colour with very pretty cream coloured flowers. The can has the standard Febreze trigger type spray, I have not seen this sort of mechanism on other brands of air freshener but I do like it. The can is very comfortable to hold and the trigger mechanism is very easy to press.

          When pressed the air freshener is released in a cloud of fine droplets, the droplets are visible to the eye and you can see them float steadily to the ground, they do seem to disappear before reaching the ground. I like to spray the air fresher in an upwards direction to give the droplets maximum space to evaporate. I have never had any problems with the air freshener leaving a sticky residue or making the toilet floor wet or slippy.

          The 'Moonlight Vanilla' scent is very light and sweet, it is not a cloying artificial scent. It smells like the bottle of Vanilla extract I use for baking, but not in a cake way. It is more of a floral vanilla scent. Although not a very strong scent the air freshener eliminates bathroom odours and leaves behind a very light vanilla scent.

          The quality of the scent used in Febreze air fresheners make them suitable for use around the home not just the bathroom as they don't smell artificial.

          I have found that Febreze air fresheners do not aggravate my family's asthma, which is something I am happy about and in my mind justifies the price tag. I only have to buy air freshener once or twice a year so I am happy to pay the full price if I can't find a good offer.

          Febreze Mist & Refresh comes in a large variety of scents, some of these scents are seasonal, like the Cranberry & Frost or themed like the Thai Orchid or Hawaiian scents, they can usually be purchased for around £2 when not on offer.

          Thank you for reading.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          If you want to eliminate rather than mask odours, get this!

          We have been using this air freshener for a couple of years now. This has probably given away that we quite like it. In particular, the aerosol action of this product is far gentler than traditional aerosols which make the loud spraying noise. This makes it far less scary to our cat who will sprint out of the room if we spray one of the other noisy ones.

          We mainly buy the "Cotton Fresh" fragrance in this range as, just like its name suggests, it has the freshest fragrance and smells pretty neutral so to avoid being overpowering or too noticeable. I always feel that if you walk into a house and can smell the air freshener really strongly then they have just sprayed it and they are therefore possibly covering up something. None of the this range would give me that impression if sprayed as although they do leave a nice fragrance, it is not too strong.

          The main action of this air freshener, I do not think, is its own fragrance, It is intended to eliminate odours from the air. I have to say that it does appear to work quite well. I can spray it into a rather smelly room and immediately all I can smell is the febreze fragrance, however, this fragrance will only last a few hours. BUT, after this few hours you would usually expect to smell the smelly room again - most of the time you cannot (or at least not as bad) therefore suggesting that it does actually eliminate odours from fabrics. No one in the house smokes so I personally have no idea how well it works with smoke smells but I have heard positive things about it in regards to this.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Expensive but does the job

          I must admit, over the years of buying Febreze trigger spray odour-neutraliser bottles and fabric freshener sprays I had become quite sick of that classic "Febreze smell". I recall Ariel started adding Febreze to their washing powders so the scent of Febreze to me became associated with trying to mask odours- and I disliked that Febreze smell so I stopped buying it.

          A few months ago a friend re-introduced me to this when I asked what they used as their house always smelled lovely- to my slight surprise the answer was Febreze Mist & Refresh. Now the container itself is a sort of half can, half trigger spray hybrid. The bottom part is like your average spray air-freshner, but the top section has a trigger to pull. When you squeeze the trigger, there is no big powerful aerosol 'SHHHHHHHHHK' effect/ sound- instead it is more like a spritz- quite a weak 'ffffffffffft' noise and a fine mist spray.

          I use this to get rid of cooking smells as there is no door between my kitchen and living room, so if I cook anything like a roast or bacon etc the whole house stinks afterwards and I noticed my hair started to pick up cooking smells so now, after I have been cooking, I spritz some of this Febreze mist around the kitchen and living room and it really does do what it says on the tin (neutralises odours).

          The scent it gives out is really fresh smelling and quite uplifting. Only a few spritzes in the corners of the room will disperse and will leave your room smelling fresh for a good 24 hours if not longer. I used some i the middle of last week and a friend popped over 3 days later and said how fresh my house was smelling so I would credit this to the Febreze.

          This is quite pricey as far as air freshener type products go. I have just done a quick search and this item is selling on EBay for £4.99 a bottle! It is currently on offer for £2 at ASDA but is selling for £3 at Tesco/ Sainsbury's. So it is double what I would normally look to pay for something like this. My bottle has lasted for several months now and although I don't use it daily, I do cook quite often and I like to use it when I am cleaning the house to just give the place a little boost.

          Technical info:
          The manufacturer is P&G
          The product comes in a variety of scents: cotton, apple spice, coastal breeze, blossom & Breeze and winter evening.
          The pack has the usual warnings on about keeping it away from children and not spraying it near your eyes.

          Interestingly the pack also states "Air fresheners do not replace good hygiene practices". I am now wondering who thought they did to result in P&G feeling compelled to write that on the pack!

          The product should be used with caution by anyone who is sensitive to perfumes or allergic to perfumed products. Also it contains a non-flammable propellant (I assume this means it is better for the environment but it does not say this anywhere on the can).

          Overall, I would buy this again but only if I see it on offer somewhere as it is pricey (one star removed for the £3 price tag!).

          Lovely air freshener from Febreeze

          I use air freshener every day as part of my housework routine, after cleaning a room I spray it to try and get rid of the chemical smell you can get give some products and to leave the room smelling clean and fresh. I'm currently using Febreeze.

          Febreeze mist and refresh is available in a few differerent scents including morning dew, cotton fresh and blossom and breeze. I have the mist and refresh in blossom and breeze so my review is going to be about this one. It is quite widely available to purchase for around £3 for a 300ml can, but can often be found cheaper on special offers.

          The packaging fits in with the Febreeze range being cylinder in shape and having a pull trigger type nozzle at the top. The design is quite nice with a neutral background and a picture of some blossoms, the top of the nozzle is pink in colour which represents the scent, the other scents in the range have different coloured tops. The trigger is easy to pull and once pulled it will continue to emit the air freshener until you take your finger off, or it automatically stops after a few seconds. Although the trigger isn't very long, I still find it comfortable to hold.

          The mist and refresh name shows that the consistency of the air freshener is misty. When it is sprayed from the nozzle it does have a wet feeling to the mist, however this soon disappears and if it lands on any surfaces it disappears instantly. I tend to spray away from me as I'm leaving the room as it doesn't feel that pleasant if you walk through a cloud of it. The fragrance is what you would expect from the name, it is floral with a sweet twist to it. After spraying the air freshener around the home I find that it lasts quite long, the fragrance is full and powerful for around three quarters of an hour then growing more subtle and finally disappearing after an hour.

          The mist and refresh air freshener does have something extra compared to normal air fresheners, it's hard to put my finger on it. I think the wetness of the actually spray makes it more apparent when you enter each room that it has been freshened up, it makes it stronger than others in my opinion.

          Although it's quite pricey, the Febreeze mist and refresh is worth every penny. I find one can of this lasts me a few months despite using it almost daily. The scent is lovely, and it lasts a long time once sprayed. I'd definitely recommend it.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A great range

            I'm guessing that there can't be too many people who have not heard from Febreze which is made by Proctor and Gamble.

            It was first tested out as far back as 1993 and the line has 'since branched out to include air fresheners (Air Effects), fabric refreshers, plug-in oils (Noticeables), scented disks (Scentstories), odor eliminating candles and automotive air fresheners'.

            So what's it all about? Basically it is an air freshener in an aerosol with a difference. You may have seen adverts on TV which show people blindfolded doing the smell test on shoes and socks etc. They think they are smelling something lovely and fresh until they open their eyes.

            According to the website the active ingredient in Febreze is 'Hydroxypropyl beta-cyclodextrin or HPβCD. Procter & Gamble claims that these molecules bind hydrocarbons within the doughnut shape, retaining malodorous molecules, which reduces their release into the air and thus the perception of their scent'
            The original formula was invented in England.

            There are so many different scents that Febreze have on offer. These include Cotton Fresh, Blossom and Breeze, Thai Orchid, Caribbean Paradise, Moonlight Vannilla, Coasta Escape and Seasonal. They also have ones out for different times of the year. The favourite in our house at the moment is Cranberry and Frost. I'm not sure how good they are for you to breathe them in but they smell gorgeous and very real. The same fragrances can be found in standing air fresheners and electric ones, as well as their candle range.

            It is advertised that they are animal friendly and I guess the market is aimed at pet owners. It elimates the smell very quickly and a quick spray is ideal if you have guests or visitors and you want the house to smell nice. I often spray it in the car if I'm going to be giving people a lift. Much better than a stale smell and at only £2 a can it does a great job. I find my can usually lasts 2/3 weeks squirting once a day on average.

            Do I recommend this air freshener? Yes, without a doubt. It works very well and the smell lingers for hours. There is a large choice and the price is inexpensive.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            freshens up our house, but not overly powerful for strong smells

            I don't smoke (thank God) but one thing that drives me up the wall is that my partner doesl Bless him, he mainly goes out to do it or opens the bedroom/front room window and has a puff but I can't stand the smell so cracking opening the window and giving a quick squirt of this febreeze helps me get rid of the awful aroma!

            It comes in quite a unique aerosol can, which has a trigger lever to spray the mist around the room. It can quite resemble a type of kitchen/bathroom cleaning product but overall the packaging is not half bad as it is designed with a white background and blue top with a flower to resemble the scent of the mist.

            I bought the scent in Cotton fresh from a Wilkinsons near where I live. These usually are quite a bit more costly at £3 for a 300ml but I got these as a bargain for a mere £2 some time ago! I think this is much more better value and a price I don't mind paying. The can states that Febreze eliminates odours and doesn't mask them. This is ideal, as I often find with traditional air fresheners the original awful smell just lingers and blends with a sharp and often more powerful air freshener smell and the two never compliment each other. With the Febreexe Mist & Refresh, I'd agree that it works much better to eradicate the original bad smell that may be in the home and leaves a light and subtle fresh fragrance behind.

            I tend to spray it in the centre of the room and a few squirts is sufficient for it to diffuse and get to work pretty quickly. This is also suitable for use on linens and upholstery, and whilst I never directly spray it into my sofas, bed linen or rug etc it does find a way to disperse and leave a soft and gentle scent behind and really does help to eliminate odours! The only downside is this does wear a little thin and after perhaps an hour or so I'd definitely say the effects of this febreeze and mist is gone. Granted it does the job and does get rid of any unpleasant smoke smell but it is not long lasting.

            Overall I like this febreeze but would not really pay more than the 2 quid for it. It's nice enough, to get rid of unpleasant smells and neutralise odours, but it is quite mild and gentle and I can't imagine it being powerful enough for things such as pets. It's not the most long lasting, but gets the job done for what I need it for.

            Odour buster

            Febreze mist and refresh

            I like to have these kind of odour buster products in the house, because I like the smell of recently sprayed rooms. There are several smells available but the one I favour at the moment is cotton fresh.

            WHAT DOES IT DO?

            This promises to have patented odour eliminating technology so that you can enjoy true freshness.

            PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...

            The product comes in a 300ml tin with all of the information and instructions on the back and front of the can.the front of the can has a picture of cotton plants which didn't surprise me, but does give an indication of what the smell is all about. The product is dispensed via a trigger spray mechanism. The handle of it is at the side slightly further up than I would carry the bottle which makes it easy to use and doesn't take a lot of pressure to get the spray out of the can; a slight pressure is enough to get the product out of the can.

            The product itself is dispensed as a fine mist which seems to spray not just in front of the can but also slightly to the sides as well so more area is covered. It does smell very fresh and clean although I'm not sure it smells of cotton (what does cotton smell like?).

            USING THE PRODUCT...

            To use it simply press the trigger spray and spray into the air in a sweeping motion. This does dispense the product nice and evenly right to the bottom of the can. I have found that even if it falls onto the carpet and soft furnishings, it doesn't stain and because the mist is so fine, it doesn't make things overly wet.

            PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...

            They usually cost around £3 a can but are frequently on special offer- at the moment asda seem to have them for £3 for 2, so quite a bargain. They are available in several scents at supermarkets and many smaller shops.

            VERDICT...

            This for me is a handy product to have in the house and I tend to use it daily before I leave the house in the morning which means that the house smells nice and fresh when I walk in after work. I don't know that it eliminates odours as there aren't too many odours (I don't think) because there is no smoking etc in the house. However, if after cooking, I spray this, then there are fewer smells but this could be masking. It is easy to use, a lot goes a long way and it lasts for ages.
            Whatever it does, it does work for me and I would recommend it.

            Thanks for reading

            Daniela xx

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I'd definitly reccomend. A great buy.

            One of my favoruite things to do after a nice big clean is to spray a nice air freshner around the house. Its just nice to walk into a smart, tidy room and have a lovely odour to accompany it!
            In the last few months we've been using Febreze mist & refresh. They come in a vairety of scents but the one we're using at the moment is moonlight vanilla (I'm a big vanilla fan). The scent kind of reminds me of fresh laundry!

            PACKAGING:
            Different scents have different colours to them. The moonlight vanilla im using has a purple colour scheme. It has a solid block of purple top and bottom whereas the middle has more of a soft lavender background. The Febreze brand name is printed quite clearly on the upper centre of the bottle and underneath is product type information- mist and refresh and scent. It has a decorative flower on the lower half of the bottle. On the other side theres a product statement, directions for use, contact information for the company and the regular warnings e.g. keep away from children, do not burn etc.
            The bottle itself has a trigger to pull to spray the air freshner.

            PRICE:
            I got mine in Asda for £2.

            THE PRODUCT ITSELF:
            One thing I like about Febreze is the fact that rather than just masking odours it gets rid of them. Aswell as after a clean i like to use them after changing my sons nappy, after someone has spent some quality time in my toilet, and when my boyfriend has stood by the front door smoking and the odour has sneaked in slightly.

            As you can imagine i use quite a lot but the bottle just seems to last weeks! Im amazed how much we still have left of it and for just £2 I'll definitly be buying again.

            Febreze mist and refresh

            I have been using Febreze products for a number of years now because I like the way they work/clean and I think that most of the things they claim that their product can do, they actually do. One of the Febreze products I really like are the mist and refresh air fresheners. They work in the same way as the original Febreze does, by taking odours away and not just masking them but actually getting rid of them. 

            Febreze say that ,"Mist & Refresh combines odour removal with a light fragrance to truly refresh your home." Apparently, "the patented Febreze odour elimination technology traps and neutralises everyday bad smells rather than just masking them. Plus, the mist itself is water-based and specially designed to gently release a light and subtle fragrance."

            I have been using this spray for a while and really like how my house smells afterwards. I find with regular air fresheners they often smell a bit fake and have that aftersmell that really gets into the back of your throat but this is a more subtle smell and just makes the room smell fresh and clean. The bottle has a trigger action spray on it and when you do spray it you can actually see the mist coming out and drifting off into the air. It then falls down after a few seconds and disperses around the whole area where you spray it. I think this helps to get the smell all around the room and not just like a normal spray would do by spraying directly up and then falling down again. 

            According to Febreze this air freshener contains a nitrogen propellant (nitrogen is 80% of the air we breathe). Combined with a bespoke trigger system, this creates larger water droplets in the mist giving a lasting scent experience. I would definitely agree that this is the case.

            There are various scents available. The one I am using at the moment is the cotton fresh scent which is a lovely clean scent which smells just like clean washing. I find its a really nice smell to use around the house and is an air freshener that I definitely recommend.

            Great product

            This air freshener from Fabreze is excellent at dispelling unpleasant bathroom odours, a friend had it in her bathroom and after using it I was hooked and had to go out and buy it for use in our house. I bought the standard cotton fresh one however there are other fragrances available in the range. The canister is a nice design with a sloped top and a nice comfortable trigger dispenser that delivers a good strong jet of spray. I find that one good spray is more than enough to dispel and unpleasant odours.

            The idea behind the product is that it traps and nullifies the bad odours rather than merely masking them and this means that the smell is got rid of effectively, whatever the claims it makes and the dodgy science I'm sure someone can dispel all I know is that this really does an effective job of gettuing rid of smells quickly and without any lingering odours at all.

            The cotton fresh variety certainly has a very lively and pleasant smell, a sort of fresh, slightly floral smell but with a touch of moisture in it. It can also be used in other rooms of the house to dispel odours that have permeated carpets or curtains and it is pretty long lasting as well.

            I paid £2.15 for a 300ml can of the spray and it has never let me down and is a product I would certainly recommend as a good air freshener that is great at dispelling bad odours and leaving rooms smelling nice and fresh.

            the best and most effective air freshener

            I am a smoker and I am well aware of how horrible stale smoke can smell - Febreze is perfect for freshening up my flat and getting rid of any nasty odours.

            I am not the biggest fan of air fresheners, I find them either to be too strong, or they dont smell at all, and rather than just getting rid of odours they just mask them with an even stronger smell - that usually doesnt smell all that nice. I had tried Oust before, which claims to elimiate odours but I found it was too strong smelling and didnt really do a good job - so I was a bit sceptical about Febreze which claims to do the same thing. I decided to purchase it after seeing it on offer at half price in Wilko's once at £1.49, and thought I'd give it a go.

            Febreze comes in several scents and claims to be like no other air freshener (I had my doubts), combining odour removal with light fresh fragrance. The first thing I noticed was that Febreze comes in a much nicer container than your average air freshener with a very satisfying trigger you pull on to dispense it into the air (that might sound wierd but I do strangely enjoy spraying this around). I tend to spray mine lightly on the carpets, and on the furniture and curtains, whats great is that it doesnt make anything wet as long as you dont hold it too close and dont over do it. It sprays out a very fine mist and the scent is very light, I often find Im choking and struggling to breathe after just spraying an air fresher but this one is just perfect. The scent is light and refreshing and it leaves my flat smelling fresh, rather than of really strong air freshener. I would say that it really does kill odours aswell and doesnt just cover them up, I dont think the fragrance is actually strong enough to cover up smells so it must be eliminating them!

            Overall I would definitely recommed their air freshener, it really does so what it claims and it leaves my flat and carpets/fabrics/furniture etc smelling lovely and clean and freshly washed. It normally retails for around £3 which I think is quite expensive no matter how good it is, but you can usually find it on offer somewhere such as supermarkets or Wilko's, and it can occasionally be found in the pound shop which makes it an absolute bargain! I always keep a can around the house now for an occasional spritz of freshness!

            Effective and good value

            Febreze Mist & Refresh:

            Unfortunately the only place in my flat that I can put my cat litter tray is right by the front door. This means the occasional nasty niff when visitors arrive which is where Febreze Mist & Refresh comes in!

            Mist & Refresh is an aerosol air freshener sold in 300ml metal containers with an ergonomic trigger at the top. The trigger fits neatly into the hand and allows for accurate delivery of the contents. Unlike a lot of "standard" air freshener cans there is no chance of accidentally spraying stuff into your face because the nozzle has gotten turned around. To use you just give a short spray into the air; I find doing it as high up as possible is best as it kind of floats downwards after being sprayed.

            Mist & Refresh is one of those air fresheners that claim to not just spray perfume into the air but instead actually eliminates the odours. Obviously I can't really test that without a lab but after use the air does seem and smell fresher. I use the lavender scent and I find it covers the cat litter smell as well as tobacco smoke and cooking odours. The scent of the spray is quite strong so I definitely recommend using a small amount then spraying more after a minute or so if you need it.

            There are several different scents available and I think they also do seasonal fragrances but I have only used the lavender and fresh cotton ones; both of which smell exactly like I imagined they would and they are both very nice.

            On the packaging there are all the normal warnings about solvents and avoiding spraying directly onto your pets/children, avoiding your eyes etc.

            At £3.00 a can the Mist & Refresh works out as great value because they last ages, (and unlike traditional aerosol fresheners this can has not ever left rusty marks when stored), but you can often find them on offer.
