Febreze Set & Refresh Air Freshener Review

As a mom with 4 children and a household with pets (we have a dog and cat), I am always concerned with how our home appears and smells. Whether it’s sweaty shoes, a stinky diaper, the trashcan, or the dog bed (I could go on all day), there are many yucky smells around. Yet smell is one of the first things people notice when they enter someone’s home. I don’t want my house to smell like all of the above things! Yet stinky diapers or trashcans are a part of life in my house.

Febreze has many amazing products to help our homes look and smell pleasant. Their latest product, Febreze Set & Refresh, was just released last month and is a simple no-battery or plugs-required unit that provides up to 30 days of freshness. The unit is designed to provide long-lasting odor elimination and freshness. Dual Refills are  available in four scent varieties: Linen & Sky, Hawaiian Aloha, Spring & Renewal, & Advanced Odor Elimination.

I love air freshener products, but I don’t buy many of them for a couple of reasons: 1) There are limitations to where you can place many of them – many require you to plug them into an outlet. We have an older home with many of the outlets down low where we can’t put air fresheners. And 2) Some are quite pricey.

That being said, I really love this new Febreze Set & Refresh. It’s simple, you can put it anywhere you want and move it at will and, at a suggested retail price of $4.49, it’s got a great price tag too. But does it work?

When I first received our set, I almost expected a complicated set-up like many of the air freshener systems available. Instead, it was so simple to just open up, take off the seal for the refill, and pop it in. It was so simple, I read the directions three times because I thought I was missing something! But it really is that easy. You can “open” the unit to allow more “freshness” or close it a little if you want to put it in a smaller space and need less. Then you just put it wherever you want. I debated where to put our Febreze Set & Refresh, but I decided to put it on our little wall mirror/stand in the front entryway. This is where people come in when they visit our home and where they are probably met with many potential not-so-pleasant smells. (I surely hope not, but at least now I can rest easy with our new Febreze Set & Refresh!) The unit says it will work best in smaller locations – our entryway is not exactly a closed-hallway – it opens into our living room on one side and stairs going up on the other side. I wasn’t sure how well it would work as it is rather open, but it’s surprised me and performed extremely well.

The scent – Linen & Sky – is very pleasant and while it clearly works, it’s not overpowering or “fake” smelling like some air fresheners are. I can’t say if the unit really does last 30 days as I haven’t had it that long, but so far I have been impressed.

I also really like how sleek and modern the Febreze Set & Refresh looks. It’s very unobtrusive and I can put it in many locations throughout my home without it screaming “AIR FRESHENER!” I will be picking up a couple more of these for other spots in my home.

I highly recommend the Febreze Set & Refresh system. It looks great, works well, and is affordable; everything you want in a product like this. Thanks, Febreze!

    I got one of these in the mail but haven’t tried it yet. we are doing some work on our home from tornado damage but once that’s done & we get back in our home (at inlaws now) Im certainly going to use it! I hope it gets rid of all the stale closed up smells of from our home being unoccupied so long.

  6. I’ve been debating whether or not to try this out but now I think I’m going to stop at the store later this morning and just go for it! Thanks!!

  7. I love that it doesn’t “look” like an air freshener – it is actually stylish and would go great in any room.

  8. I love that this new product is so stylish – it will blend into your decor and make the room smell great too! What more can you ask for?

  9. I love Febreeze products & have to admit i have one of these & put it in our little closet & it dont work at all. If you sniff it up close you can smell it & it smells really good,but as for making our closet smell better it didnt work for me.

    I could use an air freshener right now in my house.

  16. Leona Evans says:

    I love Febreze! I have one of the set & refresh air fresheners in my living room. It has a nice scent.

  17. Michelle Spayde says:

    I had one of these that was so strong that I had to put it out on our huge screened porch and it was still overwhelming. The next one I put in a small bathroom and could barely smell it at all. Hmmmm…..

  18. Angela Sue Gross says:

    Great review — I’ve been looking for a good quality air freshener that works when it needs to but isn’t “always on.” I think I’ve found it! Thank you! (This is part of my Roundup Rafflecopter entries.) Angela Gross

  19. I received these recently and loved them. I just wished they lasted as long as they said they would.

  20. Leah Walker says:

    I have a houseful of animals and stinky family members so I’m always looking for things that really work. Thank you for the honest review. It irritates me when I buy something and you can’t even smell it standing right by it. I need serious air freshening power. Lol.

  21. I’m a HUGE Febreze fan, they have the most wonderful sents and thay always keep thir freshiners stylish! I love the fact that you can adjust the amount of the sent that is comming into the space.

  22. Im always looking for good stuff to make my house smell good! Thanks!

  23. BECKY DAVIS says:

    I have been thinking about getting a couple of these to use. I have cats and want to try the strong eliminator you wrote about.

  24. joyce walker says:

    we bought one of your refresh car air freshners and it leaked on the dash of my car and I was told by a paint and body shop man that they would have to sand down that part of the dash and repaint it. I feel it a defective and the manufacturer should have to pay to have it fix. please call me 561-201-2149. Im not real happy. joyce

  25. chelesa sims says:

    I bought one of these and i do have say Febreeze anything is fantastic. I hope it in my room and everytime i walked into my room ,it smelled so good.

  26. I have not tried these yet but if it is anything like their other products then it is definitely worth trying.
