This is part 1 in my air freshener series! I have DOGS. Big dogs.... They are the love of my life, but they can really make your house less than fresh! Cleaning up every day helps, but they track in all sorts of great dirt and smells, and sometimes (even after cleaning sometimes) you need a pick-me-up in the house. Febreeze Air Effects is a pretty good choice for that.
It has a very pleasant smell that comes in a good variety. I tend to go for the vanilla lavender one, but it also comes in a linen scent, a spring flower scent, and a few others that are equally nice. The canister is attractive enough to leave out in a bathroom for guests or just around in case you need it. The design of the canister makes it easy to use. It's aerosol-like, but has a trigger pull so if you are spraying for a decent period of time you don't get the stuff all over you.
The important part of an air freshener for me is the lasting effect. I give this one a 2 because although the scent lingers a bit, it dissipates pretty quickly leaving just a faint scent behind. Don't get me wrong-that can be what you want-just a slight fragrance. In that case this could be the one for you! The problem with me is that it's more of a cover up than an air cleaner (it claims to kill odor causing bacteria in the air).
This is one of the better fresheners on the market right now. give it a try and see how it doe for you! For the price, it's worth a try.
