I am not a big fan of winter. I actually detest winter and I have never been a fan of snow although I was born in winter. While other kids love being outdoors playing in the snow, making snow angels and having snowball fights, I would much prefer to stay indoors and drink some hot chocolate and wait for it all to melt. Another reason that I’m not such a fan is that in the winter it seems like my household air isn’t as fresh as it should be. One reason could most certainly be that the windows are always always closed, usually to keep the cold out but it also keeps the fresh air out too. So I was ecstatic when Febreze contacted me about trying out one of their brand new Febreze Air Purifier, and the great news is that one of you get to try it out too. We’ve also included some home cleaning tips by Julie Edelman of the Accidental housewife, to help you on your way to keeping your home air clean.
The Febreze Air Purifier provides customized, hands-free and stress-free cleaning and has a powerful HEPA-Type filter that traps up to 99% of airborne particles such as dust, pollen, pet dander and odors. All while leaving behind the fresh scent of Febreze for a whole room clean! Equipped with dual action HEPA- Type filters for odor and dust reduction, Febreze air purifiers trap up to 99% of airborne particles including dust, pet dander and other allergens while releasing the fresh scent of Febreze linen & sky or spring & renewal. With 3 air-cleaning levels and a freshness scent control dial, the Febreze Air Purifiers are customizable to your preference.
I did however notice that when turned on to it’s highest setting that it was very loud. We turned it down to setting 1 which was so quiet that you could barely hear it, which makes it perfect for bedroom settings. It does come with a supplied Febreze linen & sky scent cartridge which is supposed to last up to 30 days. The scent isn’t overpowering but since it’s close to my bed we also turned that down.
Available in Tabletop, Mini Tower and Tower size models, they are perfect for dorm rooms, bedrooms, offices, living rooms or anywhere dust and/or odors make the space feel less than fresh and clean. They are also very compact and don’t take up much room either.
So now here are Julie Edleman’s Cleaning Tips that we promised:
Move Over, Must: Your basement smells musty, but you don’t know what to do? The carpeted floor is most likely the culprit. Carpet fibers hang on to dust particles and moisture, which can make the basement smell musty. Sprinkle some corn starch or baby powder, let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes, then suck it up with your vacuum. You can also use a dehumidifier to reduce moisture in the air. HINT: To help capture those dust particles before they even have a chance to hit the carpet, keep a Febreze Air Purifier in your basement.
Ditch the Dust: No matter how neat and clean you try to be, dust has sneaky a way of collecting on surfaces throughout your home. Try the Febreze Air Purifier to help capture airborne particles before they settle, reducing the levels of airborne dust that can accumulate on furniture and counters.
When Your Wall Becomes A Work Of Art: For colored markers spray the wall with hairspray and immediately wipe before it can drip down or dry. For crayons, you can put a dab of toothpaste on a toothbrush and gently wipe it out, or rub with a dampened microfiber cloth and baking soda.
Embarrassing Pet Odors: We love our furry friends, but we’re not so fond of the embarrassing pet odor that they leave around the house—from kitty litter and pet mishaps to wet dog smell. Try using the Febreze Air Purifier to reduce odors and add a fresh, clean scent back into the air.
The Febreze Air Purifier is available at Walmart, Sam’s Club, Amazon.com and other retailers. Models may vary.
Now this is the part that you’ve all been waiting for you. One of you will win this Febreze Tower Air Purifier. The same one that I got to try out and love. Not only will it keep your home air smelling fresh and clean but you’ll wonder why didn’t Febreze come out with this sooner. Giveaway is open to US Residents only and ends on February 6th. Good luck to all entering.
