More bad news about air freshener's - and solutions! A recent article on MSN Health about air fresheners cites a study that has found a correlation between air fresheners and women's heart health. We know air fresheners can aggravate allergies, asthma, and disrupt hormones. Now there is evidence they are unhealthy for the heart as well.
The great thing about this particular article is that it offers alternatives. I can personally vouch for spraying stinky areas with vodka. I read about using vodka as an odor neutralizer in a Grist article on second hand clothing a while back. I immediately used it on a couch cushion that had been used by an over-zealous cologne wearer and was thrilled with the result-no more stink. I have used it successfully since. Kitty litter and coffee grounds are among the other suggestions for neutralizing odors.
So put away those dangerous air fresheners and let real fresh air into your home.
