Air freshenerAir fresheners are used in the majority of American homes. People normally use deodorizers to fight odor in the bathroom, laundry room, garbage cans, kitchen and bedrooms, creating a more enjoyable place with a fresh air smell.

Air fresheners generally get rid of unpleasant odors in indoor spaces and can be found in the form of candles, aerosol sprays, diffusers, potpourri, gels and mechanical or heat release products. However, we are likely taking a whiff of dangerous chemicals every time you inhale hints of flowers or fruits from deodorizers.

A recent study shows the dangers to consumers through the use of air fresheners. Many products employ carcinogens, volatile organic compounds and known toxins such as phthalate esters in their formulas. Air fresheners may also contain chlorine bleach or ammonia. These products can pose a health risk as some ingredients can aggravate asthma and affect reproductive development.

Cleaning is essential for our health as the absence of dirt, stains and dust will reduce the presence of germs, many times responsible for allergies, asthma and intestinal diseases. But natural cleaning is the only way to take care of this issue safely.

Natural air fresheners can provide a “good and safe” smell. Most green cleaning aids do not use any chemical cleaning agents and use only natural ingredients, such as essential oils, promoting a much better environment for your family.

Alternative air freshener delivery methods include scented candles, reed diffusers, potpourri, and heat release products. Don’t forget: ventilation is also important to maintaining indoor air quality and can aid in eliminating unpleasant odors.

    I love the smell of a nice clean house and find that scented candles are a lovely way to fragrance a room without the ‘cloying” smell of some air fresheners. I am also tempted to try reed diffusers but have nor done so yet. old fashioned incense is also still a favorite fragrancing method of mine but it can be a little messy.
