I am using this post for a big rant lol, those air wick thingys? Seriously! they are actually evil! how much oil and plastic is used to produce those things and run them just to cover a nasty niff??? Makes me sick and I think they should be banned, especially those ones that run off the mains!
Open a window! it circulates the air in a room enough to keep a room smelling fresh, Also if you have a chimney it will circulate the air in a room TEN times in a day!
Ill just hop me old soap box here and get on with trying to my bit now lol
You’re absolutely right! Other smelly things that get on my nerves are those that dangle from the mirror in cars – it’s horrendous! People should start using eco-friendly cleaning products, which have lovely smells such as lemon, lavender, and so on and they wouldn’t need all these silly spray things!
I like to think my home isn’t smelly most of the time. I also use the window. I suppose some will say that it brings in cold air that has to be heated?
If those airfresh jobbies are no good what is a green alternative beside opening a window??
Um… How about – if people don’t want to open the window – making your own air fresheners? Like pot pourri or whatever it is.
Maybe grow some flowers on an allotment or window box etc.., or grow some lavender and hang it in your house to dry. It’ll smell much more subtle than those horrible things!
P.s. I completely agree with you and they make me feel sick too!
Perhaps the daily rutine of cooking food, or baking some bread, leaves the house with that lovely smell of a bakery, the smell lingers for hours.
You could also burn incense sticks or oil, but, I’m not sure how eco friendly that is .
I agree, it is so much better to air a room. I’m always opening my bedroom windows, it does help a lot, and it’s free – bonus!! Those airwick things can be so expensive.
I don’t believe in air fresheners as they generally smell of chemicals, and why pay for that? I have to agree that home baking and cooking does not smell bad, and if you do even the minimum of cleaning to kee bugs at bay, smells should not linger. Ditch the Pledge and use some beeswax polish which is wonderful, I just hope the bees are able to survive.
I do wonder what people from the past would make of all our ‘nice’ smells and scents, would they be attractive to them or would they be as harsh and alien to them as sweat and dust are to us?
i never thought about them before , ive never owned one though thankgod. ive never seen whats wrong with the smell of fresh air rather than fake “pine tree” smell x
