Recommend an office air freshener
« on: Wed, 13 August 2014, 16:03:47 »
Anyone have a favorite air freshener or maybe some non-standard ideas for keeping it fresh?

My office doesn't always stink but lets be real here it doesn't smell that great either, it needs some help!

How big is your office? Just one big room?

If so, do you have furniture that would soak in smoke/other scents? If not, incense (nag champa) is my favorite option.

If so, check out NASA's list of air filtering plants.

My office is ~ 10' x 10' and the only thing I could think of that might absorb smell is the faux leather chairs.

Traditional air fresheners, candles, and incense can get overwhelming without any air moving through the room from my experience.

I did have a pair of mother-in-law's tongues in my room/office for a while:
  • Impossible to kill
  • Only needs water once every two weeks or so
  • Makes the air noticeably cleaner
  • Doesn't attract insects
  • Cheaper than traditional air fresheners
  • Prefers sun, but can survive in shade

The only reason they're not still in my office is I need to replant them in some fresh soil. Cleaner air/10 would recommend.

As both a hermit, pet owner, and pot-head I have found a combination of an Ionic Breeze Quadra and Fabreeze Air Effects Allergen Reducer spray to be nearly as effective as almost not having body odor, a cat, and 420BLAZEIT.

I have always been a candle guy, but Scentsy is a great way to go.  I have 2 larger warmers and a wall warmer.  They have an entire collection of "manly" scents.

You can get them cheap on ebay.

Years ago I sold industrial supplies and enzyme-based odor removers were more effective than anything else.

We had a liquid that you could dilute and just spray a light mist into the air, and it worked wonders.
(1) Q: Why did Republicans Become So Extreme? A: Because they wished to tap into the fears of white, rural and small-town Americans against a changing nation.
(2) Q: Why do they want to tap into this fear? A: Because fear and rage more reliably turns out voters.
(3) Q: Why do they use these tactics? A: Because emotion clouds reason.
(4) Q: Why don’t they want voters to use reason? A: Because they might notice the policies the GOP is pursuing are not for the benefit of a majority of the voters, their communities or the country as a whole
(5) Q: Why don’t they want to pursue policies that would benefit the majority of their voters? A: Because the majority of their voters are not providing the majority of their funding.

I just use that, automatically sprays every so often.
Ozium works great also, but it's a bit pricey if you use it a lot.

For me, anything with Lavender = instant migraine though it may only be from synthetic Lavender scent I haven't tested don't want to risk it.

If you have sun, I would just get some Arabian Jasmine, Rosemary, Thyme, Cuban Oregano, Scented Geraniums, Citrus plants, Orange Jessamine, scented Corsage or Oncidium Orchid, Sweet Bay, Gardenia Augusta, Stephanotis... nothing beats some natural plants that kick out some nice aroma.

I just bought some Sex Wax air fresheners for my car. They are the ****.

I guess you could hang them from door handles? IDK.
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Treefrog Squash car air freshener. I usually keep one in my b3droom (which is 24 x 8) and it smells pretty good for about 6 weeks
