Check out our 12 favorite air fresheners here!
Caldrea Rosewater Driftwood Linen and Room Spray
One reviewer calls this air freshener from Caldrea “Febreze for rich people,” which we’d say is a pretty apt description! This rosewater-and-driftwood-scented spray smells warm and woodsy, not overly floral, and it’s a perfect pick to spritz in the linen closet or over a pile of laundry that’s still warm from the dryer.
Though this room spray is a little bit on the pricey side, its considerable 16 fluid ounces will last you quite a while!
California Home Goods Bamboo Charcoal Air Purifying Bags (4-Pack)
Need to get rid of that lingering french-fry smell in your car? These bamboo-charcoal air freshener bags are an easy way to neutralize odors, especially in a smaller, enclosed space. Even better — they are comprised of naturally derived materials that will maintain their odor-absorbing effectiveness for at least a whole year!
It’s recommended that you rotate these bags on a regular basis, letting them air out for a day or so before restashing them in the dank or smelly spots in your home, car, or gym bag.
Febreze Small Spaces Air Freshener
Here’s one air freshener that works wonders in small — but often overlooked — areas of the home like the laundry room, shoe closet, or the under-sink area. This standalone unit from Febreze works with gel-filled packs that soak into a membrane in the device, eliminating dank odors while emitting a clean, fresh-laundry scent.
Old Factory Fresh Linen Reed Diffuser Set
Stash this reed diffuser on a bookshelf, desk, or end table to enjoy the warm scent of freshly laundered linens for up to 60 days on end. The fragrance oil is subtle and inoffensive, and its glass bottle is sturdily thick-walled.
Pet House Wax Melts (Pack of Two)
Households with pets are faced with the perpetual conundrum of wanting to mask their furry friend’s scent, while not wanting to put out a candle or spray an irritating room fragrance. This wax melt may be the solution.
Made of nontoxic and paraffin-free soy wax, this pair of paw-shaped wax melts can be used with a flameless wax warmer to emit a soothing, clean aroma in your entryway area or bathroom.
