This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
Are you noseblind?
I knew about colorblindness and snowblindness, but, until recently, I never knew that you can also be noseblind!
what is noseblind?
noseblind [nohz-blihnd], noun;
The gradual acclimation to the smells of one’s home, car, or belongings, in which the affected does not notice them (even though their guests do).
Have you ever not wanted to visit someone’s home because of moldy, pet or stale odors? Have you ever skipped your Mom’s Group or Book Club because you just couldn’t handle the smell? Chances are the people who live there may be completely immune to the odor and have no idea why people don’t want to visit.
Even the door-to-door salesmen don’t want to come in!
Febreze recently sent me a kit and invited me to do a Noseblind test.
I invited two friends over for popcorn and a movie last weekend. They had heard me talking about James Brolin in Labor Day and were curious to see the peach pie scene!
I invited them in and asked them if they would mind filling out some surveys. The first was about any smells they noticed in my home.
Then I popped some buttered popcorn in the microwave and set it out on the table. I asked them to fill out another survey about smells.
We settled in with a pitcher of fresh-brewed iced-tea to watch the movie and, afterward, we all did another survey, a Noseblind Assessment.
Checking into the results, I found that my guests could still smell the Tilapia I had cooked earlier and it pretty much had taken over the entire living room (next to the kitchen). I was completely acclimated to it and didn’t even smell it anymore. Classic Noseblindness!
After the popcorn, the fish odor lessened, but now we also had the popcorn smell which lingered. Basically, odors, once released into your home can stay airborne or deposit on the soft surfaces which act like odor-magnets. Although you become nasally-challenged, your guests walking in from outside smell it immediately.
But, don’t despair, there is a solution for noseblindness!
Febreze contains a molecule called Cyclodextrin which traps and eleminates bad odors, leaving behind a pleasant scent. It does not just mask odors; it actually gets rid of them which is a blessing to me as I hate being embarrassed or putting my guests through an unpleasant experience when they come to visit.
Next, we used some of the Febreze products which I had received. My favorite of all was the Meadows and Rain Candle. It not only looked beautiful, but it freshened up my home as well.
I also really love the Meadows and Rain Air Effects spray.
