  • I've heard of them starting house fires if they are left plugged in and empty. I use them, but I replace the cartridges every month.

  • I use them but they are checked all the time because they are in the open and not behind anything.

  • I don't use them. I'm not a fan of perfumed air freshners. Here is one article that talks about the health affects from them.

  • All chemical scents are very toxic. Put a drop of vanilla on your light bulbs
