75% of US households have air fresheners throughout. And I can not stand it. There are so many negative effects of air fresheners that outweigh the excuse of not keep a house clean enough for it to smell decently. To start, eating with air freshener smell is annoying. Fruity scents and food don't blend. Chemicals that many let out are toxic. They have been proven to cause cancerous cells, adverse effects in infants, people to develop asthma, and more. I prefer natural wood, plastic, glass smells throughout the house to a cheap way to hide a dirty house. My next complaint is that I do not want my gadgets, clothes, etc. to smell like whatever the air freshener is. My bag doesn't smell, but after being in one air freshener addict's house, my Apple iPad case smells, and I hate it. My iPad has less of that "new smell", too. You're also potentially making the house smell permanently for new buyers. There's so many things to hate about the air fresheners that so many people use to hide their lack of cleaniness and laziness to open a window to let out unwanted smells. I can't be the only person on here who absolutely hates air fresheners.
