We love the children's book I Stink! by Kate & Jim Mcmullan about the stinky garbage truck. There's one line in the book that goes, "Go on, hold your nose." If there is an area in your house that makes you want to pinch your nose, perhaps you need the new Glade® Sense & Spray™ air freshener.
Glade® just recently sent me the Sense and Spray™ starter kit to try out in our home (MRP $8.99). It is an automatic air freshener that uses an intelligent motion sensing unit to detect movement. Unlike other air fresheners that continuously release fragrance, it sprays automatically only after someone has been in the room. This feature helps conserve the product. Additionally, once it has sprayed it goes into lockout mode and won't spray again for 30 minutes unless someone manually pushes the boost button on the front of the holder. The starter kit includes one holder, one refill and two AA batteries. The unit can be placed on a flat surface or mounted on the wall.
We received the Clean Linen fragrance with our starter kit. The starter kit is also available in Apple Cinnamon fragrance and refills (MRP $3.49) can be obtained in the following four fragrances: Clean Linen, Apple Cinnamon, Powder Fresh and Country Garden. The refills last around 30 days depending on traffic.
The unit was super easy to assemble. Basically all that needed to be done was to flip up the cover, snap the fragrance canister in place and remove a red tab to activate the batteries. It automatically sprays 20 seconds after assembly so make sure it isn't pointed at your face! At first I placed our Sense & Spray™ on our bathroom countertop. While it worked perfectly well in this location, I decided the Clean Linen scent really wasn't what I wanted in our bathroom. The smell reminds me of dryer sheets so I moved our unit onto a shelf in the mudroom/laundry area. This location has worked out perfectly for us. The room usually smells of dirty laundry and smelly shoes, but now the room has clean, pleasant fragrance. Once and awhile, after high traffic, the fragrance can get a little heavy since our mudroom is small and doesn't have the best ventilation. The unit doesn't include an on/off button so you can't turn it off completely. However, it is easy enough to pull out a battery or the canister to disable it. All in all, we've enjoyed the product. When my husband came home from work last week, he commented how much better the mudroom smells. The Sense & Spray™ must be doing it's job!
The Glade® Sense & Spray™ is available for purchase in most mass-mechandise, drug and food stores.
