Everyone has to deal with some home-stink at some point. Pets are stinky. Kids are stinky. Smoking spouses and living on a farm are stinky. How does one get all of the stink out? You could buy a ton of beautiful, lovely-smelling candles or hot oil lanterns, but the probability of the kids or the pets upsetting these items and starting a fire is just too much stress. Here are some businesses and the products they offer that scent your home sans fire.
These are a unique product that activates scents via a rechargeable scent dispenser. It does not need to be plugged in, lit, melted or sprayed to work. The scent is not overpowering either; it is described by its salespeople as light and airy. The recharging station cannot burn you or hit you with a mild electric charge either. It is perfectly safe around kids and pets.
Mist Dispensers and Scent Boutiques
Mall boutiques that specialize in home and body fragrance products all have their own mist dispensers. While the mist dispensers look different and disperse the boutique scents in very different ways, they still require an outlet or a few batteries for operation. What is more, you may not like the scents they provide, or the scents might be overwhelming to people with really sensitive noses. The only positive to these mist dispensers is that they are safe for kids and pets if you put them out of reach/up high.
Potpourri works if your children and pets cannot get into it and attempt to eat it. Placing it on a bathroom shelf or the top of a cabinet can help scent the room, but using it as decoration is out because of the potential for consumption by those that should not try to eat it. The other problem with potpourri is that you have to replace it frequently, as the scent used to saturate the dried bits of plants in the packet is just perfume and not natural scents. If you are forgetful to the point that you do not change light bulbs and batteries in smoke detectors, replacing potpourri every two weeks is not for you.
Hanging Air Fresheners
Car air fresheners work because they are in a small and enclosed space. Buying dozens of these to hang in your house will not work because it is not the same kind of space. All of those car air fresheners will also make your home look very cheap.
