Febreeze? Do you use it or is it gross to you?

I will only use it inbetween washes on my couch blankets. It kind of grosses me out to use it on pillows and other items that are not safe to wash. lol. I compare it to spraying perfume on yourself instead of taking a shower. What are your thoughts??

  • It's just a fragrance, it can't actually clean anything, so I totally agree with your comparison of shower VS perfume.
    If my curtains stink (why are the curtains stinking anyway in the commercial?), I will take them down and wash them.
    If my bedding smells, I will wash it or take it to the dry cleaners.
    If my sofa smells, it will be professionally cleaned.
    THAT'S how you get rid of odor-causing bacteria!

  • I always wash the stuff but I only use it to make the house smell pretty after all the cleaning is done.

  • I like it for some things in between washes, but I wouldn't use it in PLACE of washing the stuff. THAT'S what is gross. lol

  • To me, it's gross because it's full of chemicals, not something that is safe and natural.

  • I use it and love it b/c it is not just perfume masking odors. It actually neutralized and kills bacteria that cause those odors. For pillows, I throw them in the dryer b/c the heat will kill the germs and then spray Febreeze. I spray it on my couches and carpets too. I think it smells good and fresh.
