Re: Plug-in air fresheners - safe?

I would steer well clear, not only for your cats good health but for your own.
They are full of toxins.

Some reading for you:

Re: Plug-in air fresheners - safe?

Hi guys,

I've been doing abit of research on air-fresheners and alot of them have Chemicals, however, i've came across a company that uses natural blends and not chemicals. So i contacted the man and i spoke for a good while before i went ahead to buy anything from him.
I Bought a machine, some blends and some solRox Rock salt. The blend spearmint by gum is just Great just Great !!!! I've been with him over 6 months now. I just pick up the phone and call him and order. No messing about. Just Simple. I don't buy from anyone else again. Cos i go direct to him one fee one price no middle man and it arrives the next day. Now my house smells great.

Aromair - sea air breathing & air therapy system

Thanks

Nickman

Re: Plug-in air fresheners - safe?

I'm not sure if I'd like to use one in our house with our cat. We've never owned one ourselves but further to previous comments, I have noticed that some do get a bit hot, the other concern I would have is that cats have quite a good sense of smell compared to humans, and they must be simply overpowering to a cat, even more so to a dog I would guess.

We stay about once a year in a Gite in France that we like, the owner of the Gite has one of these gadgets in the living room area, and I have to unplug it as I notice it makes my eyes water I haven't got the heart to tell her but the first time we ever stayed there I hadn't noticed it plugged into the wall, and just assumed the overpowering smell was a cheap perfume she must have been wearing

I always think that things like that are putting chemicals in our bodies (and our cats), and maybe that's not such a good thing, over a long period of time

Re: Plug-in air fresheners - safe?

Hi Guys,

I know some of you have been put off by the chemicals by air wick, Febreze and the likes. The man from aromair also does free rental machines and non-chemical blends. So if it don't meet your needs then you lost nothing. If you don't ask you don't get simple. When you shop at asda or morris, tesco etc where ever you may go. The staff there either have a lack of knowledge of the what they are selling in the store's or they are not aware of the product and it's application. It's either in stock or not or we don't know. Grrrrrr.

Just like everybody i want my house clean and i like my house smelling fresh to. I use to deliver tv sets for a firm a few, few years ago. I walked into one house and i had to walk straight back out and take a deep breath of fresh air and walk back in. Trust me star the smell was nasty like something dead or an animal or someone crapped on the floor. I'm talking when i was more or less a school leaver 1985-86. I'm 40 now and i still remember the smell today and i can even remember which dam house it was.

Aromacology
is the name scientists have appointed Aromatherapy in recognition of of its importance in natural health and research into the many ways that healing plants can help our lives. Plants have evolved (and are still evolving) to protect themselves against organisms that would want to harm them, this has taken a very long time and underpins their importance to us and the way we live.

I hope this helps.

Nickman

Re: Plug-in air fresheners - safe?

When we did use them one of our cats itched all the time. He also is alergic to carpet fresheners so i will not have one in the house at all now

Re: Plug-in air fresheners - safe?

Hi Guys,

Sorry, but how can water cause allergies? How can water and Spearmint contain chemicals? Water is from the ground and spearmint is also made from water. Its the innovation that goes behind it to make it natural. As i said before, i did my research ( many days staying on-line ) on air-fresheners and Aromair came out on-top. Water. We drink it, we shower it, we can mix it, you can add to it, you can bottle it.

Pet food companies make pet food, who knows what sort of crap they put into it. My cat would not eat tin cat food. 16 years we had her. we had go to the markets and buy chicken wings and legs and home food meat that we made, that's all she would eat.

Regards

Nickman

Re: Plug-in air fresheners - safe?

Plug-in air fresheners are very bad news. I am amazed they are sold because they kill pet fish and can give people headaches and watery eyes. A neighbour's cat that visits me always has hot ears and stinks of air-freshener, unfortunately he lives in a house that uses lots of them. His ears cool down and he looks so much better after he has been in my air-freshener free house for a few hours!

Re: Plug-in air fresheners - safe?

Hi Guys,

I do agree with you dat plug-in air fresheners are bad for you. All the plug-ins do is just cover up the smell and I guess cats and dogs are more sensitive to plug-ins then man and women.


Kind Regards

Nickman
