Thread: why use febreze

    why use febreze

    all their commercials show some maternal figure spraying this crap all over rank clothing and furniture......as a society have we become that fucking lazy that its easier to use this stuff to mask the odor vs. either throwing it into the washing machine or breaking out the mop or otherwise cleaning it?

    C'mon Grav....get with the program, besides think how many phosphates we won't be putting in the ground water and we still get to smell nice.

    And ever notice how much of that shit they spray?

    The commercials typically have the person spraying it all over eveything in the closet, all over the carpet, bed, drapes and furniture.

    I used it in my trunk about 8 months ago, had done some grocery shopping and a bag with some seafood in it had leaked a little onto the carpet in trunk, I used a spot remover but could still smell a faint smell whenever I opened my trunk.
    So I figured "Febreeze".... bought a bottle and sprayed the carpet in my trunk.... not excessively I might add.... just a few spritzes.

    It took forEVER to get rid of the HEAVY PERFUME FLORAL SCENT.... the fucking fish smell was less annoying!

    I ran into home hardware the other day to pick up a few items including some basic cleaning fluid to mix with water in a bucket and wash my bathroom floors.

    I had to walk down an entire aisle of fucking little pre-packaged boxes and containers of pre-moistened floor wipes in every scent, citrus, green apple, yada yada yada that were priced at something like $9.95 for 20 before I got to the good old litre bottle of Mr. Clean or Lysol which will wash my floors a multitude of times for $5.75

    They made sure to place the good old cheap bottles of cleansers at the end of the aisle so you have to pass by all the boxes of prepakaged crap with pictures of butterflies, daisies, white clouds and the words FRESH!! CLEAN!! ULTRA!! ETC. plastered all over them

    I figure how many of those fucking little moistened kleenexs does it take to do an entire floor? 5? 6? 9?.... so WTF? out of a box of 20 you can wash your floor 2? 3? times?

    Is it really that much faster/convenient than using a bucket and mop to justify the $$$$

    I use it on my hockey gear after I hang it up following a game. It does a pretty good job combatting that smell plus it's supposed to help kill the bacteria that causes staph infection. It's better than nothing because you can't wash your gear after every game. I get it cleaned at the rink twice a year for $25-$30 a shot. I agree though that by spraying it on the carpet and furniture you're just kidding yourself.

    Amen, brother! The latest version of the commercial shows "mom" spritzing the whole closet and the bedding. Strip the bed and do a load of laundry, for crying out loud! This is a fine product for spraying hard-to-clean items like upholstery, for example, and I rather like the smell in clothes (I have a "febreze" version of laundry detergent), but come on!
