You can vacuum, you can polish, and you can spritz the bleach around, but what if your sofa’s smelly and your curtains are stale? Time to whip out the Febreze – and don’t just take our word for it: see what readers think, too.

1. Sofa scented with eau de pet?


How we love our pets. And who really has the willpower to resist those hangdog stares and keep them off the sofa? Problem is, even if you can hoover off the fur, the whiff often stays behind. This is the moment for Febreze Pet Collection Fabric Refresher Spray, specially formulated with Odourclear Technology to clean away tough, lingering pet odours without masking them. Just give your soft furnishings a quick spritz once a week as part of your regular cleaning routine.

READER REVIEW: “This really hits the spot when it comes to eliminating pet odours. We have got elderly cats and dogs who have little accidents sometimes bless ’em. Just use the Febreze as recommended: job done leaving a very pleasant smell behind lasting much longer. Well impressed.” Dollene

2. Curtains you can’t face washing?


Let’s be honest, cleaning your curtains isn’t exactly top of the list of weekly (or even monthly) chores. Okay, if you’ve got nets you might take them down more often, but short of a quick blast with the extra-long vacuum nozzle, most people ignore their curtains for months or even years. Which means they might get a bit, well, stale. A weekly spritz with Febreze Fabric Refresher Spray in Cotton Fresh will keep things fresh and clean-smelling, eliminating smelly molecules.

READER REVIEW: “Lovely crisp clean smell that is not overpowering – it’s subtle yet noticeable. Covers and eliminates odours really well. Long lasting fragrance and a welcoming smell when you’re returning home after a long day at work.” Joanne15

3. Bedroom smells that give you sleepless nights?


Scent can be an important factor in helping you relax enough to go to sleep. Whether you have occasional nights staring at the ceiling or you’re a chronic insomniac, using soothing fragrance can help you nod off – and even if you don’t, at least your room will smell lovely! Giving your bedlinen or throws and cushions a light spritz with Febreze Fabric Refresher in Quiet Jasmine or Warm Milk & Honey will help create a tranquil atmosphere and maintain that just-washed feeling in your sheets. You can also spray your duvet when changing your bedlinen, to keep it fresh till you wash it.

READER REVIEW: “Quiet Jasmine made me feel instantly relaxed and peaceful. The fragrance really lasts a long time - I spray my bedroom, close the door for a few minutes and when I go back in, the lovely aroma soothes me to sleep.” Hopegirl

4. Mats, carpets and rugs that reek?


From doormats to indoor rugs to full-on fitted carpets, it can be hard to get all those fibres properly cleaned – which is a problem when you think where your shoes have been! A blast of Febreze Fabric Refresher Spray in your favourite scent will give your home that ‘just-cleaned’ scent, obliterating the molecules that cause odours.

READER REVIEW: “I use this product to get dog smells out of my room carpets – works great!” Cheryl1975

5. Trainers and shoes that stink to high heaven?


Whether you’re keeping fit and wearing out your trainers, or you can’t persuade your other half to give up his favourite old shoes, there is no aroma as pungent as a smelly shoe. If you get into the habit of spritzing them with Febreze Fabric Refresher Spray every time you take them off, you can extend the life of even the hardest-working shoes, and keep your shoe rack fragrant all year!

READER REVIEW: “My husband plays football, and has awful smelly feet, so I have my Febreze Cotton Fresh at hand. Smells great, not too girly for him – clean and just washed.” Tanya1367

6. Clothes you want to wear one more day?


Did you know that if you’re a real high-end denim fanatic, you’re not supposed to wash your jeans at all? The favoured technique for keeping them clean is to ‘freeze and Febreze’, to kill the germs and add a fresh scent. While most of us would be horrified at the idea of unwashed jeans, there’s no doubt that sometimes you want to wear something more than once – a jacket, some trousers, a jumper – before washing it. And the denim idea has some merit: a quick spritz of Febreze Fabric Refresher Spray will get rid of any of those environmental smells, from food to traffic fumes, leaving your clothes smelling laundry-fresh.

READER REVIEW: “Makes ironing a whizz. Just spray lightly to refresh delicate blouses. Lovely stuff!” emerald32
