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. #Noseblind
I have a confession to make! I have become #Noseblind to the smells in my house. I am sure that some of you out there are guilty of this too. Noseblindness is 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). You know how people’s home have a certain smell, well your home has a smell too. That is why people bake cookies when selling homes and boats. They want to cover any unpleasant smell.
Growing up, my dad smoked in the house and it did not occur to me how badly our house smelled until recently when he smoked in his house again. I came over with my daughter and immediately went outside because I could not take the smell. It was awful! I opened every window and put on every fan to air out the house until I felt it was safe for my daughter to re-enter. Obviously smoke is a clear stink that is very bad for your health, but there are smells that you can blind to that are not bad for you. For example, I love to cook with garlic and order garlic knots. I realize that garlic smell great in the beginning, but eventually it gets to the point where it starts to stick to the soft surfaces in your home. It is amazing how your nose becomes accustomed to the smells you smell every day and you begin to block them out.
Recently, I got the chance to take the Noseblind test from Febreze which involved inviting some friends over and having a movie night! A movie night that included some yummy buttery popcorn.
I invited my mom and some friends over for some chatting and a movie. Once everyone was ready, we took our first survey that came with our noseblind test. After that we popped some popcorn, and tried not to eat it all before the movie started. Time for survey 2. After singing along to the movie it was time for survey 3.
Then it was time to discuss what we learned! I learned that with 4 cats and a 6 year old, I am noseblind to some of the smells in my house. I cooked dinner with garlic of course, I am Italian! The smell of the food filled the house. Ugh! I was feeling a little embarrassed.
I then started making popcorn for the movie and I felt that would be a good smell for a movie night. After the movie, it was time to spread some Febreze love in my house. I was provided a wonderful smelling plug in, candle, fabric spray, and Air Effects. My house smelled and smells amazing thanks to Febreze. It didn’t just mask the smells, it eliminated them. Febreze truly eliminates odors, whether you can smell them or not, leaving nothing but freshness behind. So you can feel confident knowing your home is always guest-ready!
I love knowing I can be confident in my home, and how good it smells. I no longer am noseblind to smells in my home, because I’ve got Febreze on my side, helping me eliminate not-so-great smells in my home!
