Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Fighting unpleasant odors in the house is quite difficult. You can do wet cleaning several times a day using special tools. But the effectiveness of this method is questionable: after a short time, the smells return again. Air fresheners come to the rescue, which instantly fill the room with a light pleasant aroma of flowers, citrus fruits or herbs. Some products not only neutralize unpleasant odors, but also destroy bacteria and prevent them from spreading again.

There are several types of air fresheners.

  1. Aerosol cans are the most common type. It is an affordable tool that can be found in every home. It quickly disperses liquid, neutralizing odors. Its disadvantage may be the appearance of an allergic reaction when it enters the respiratory tract.

  2. Gel fresheners (aroma crystals) neutralize odors and are used as sachets for laundry. They are absolutely safe for humans, have a light, unobtrusive aroma. The disadvantage is the short duration of the agent and its high price.

  3. Auto. The most convenient type of freshener. Spraying after a certain period of time, the intensity of which you define yourself, allows you to maintain pleasant aromas constantly. It is usually wall-mounted and requires rechargeable batteries to operate.

Based on consumer feedback, our experts have compiled a rating of the best air fresheners that will help get rid of the smells of kitchen, tobacco, pets, mold and create a pleasant atmosphere with the help of natural aromas.

How to choose the right air freshener

Finding an air freshener sometimes seems like a simple matter – choose the smell you like and buy. But it's not that simple. There are some expert tips to help you with this.

  1. First, we decide: for home, office or industrial premises, we choose an air freshener. It depends on which type is optimal. For home use, an aerosol can is sometimes sufficient. For public toilets, restaurants and other places with high traffic of people, professional automatic devices are better suited.

  2. When choosing scents for the toilet, it is better to stay on citrus or conifers. Air fresheners with 'delicious' aromas of vanilla and chocolate are suitable for the kitchen. In the living room, the natural smells of a pine forest, sea breeze, flower meadow are appropriate.

  3. Cost is also an important parameter. Quite cheap aerosols will be able to eliminate the smell for a short time, but more expensive well-known manufacturers not only neutralize, but also disinfect the air, eliminating harmful microbes.

  4. If there is a child in the room or one of the household has allergic diseases, then you need to familiarize yourself with the composition and choose a product that does not contain carbon dioxide, propane and other harmful products.

  5. If it is necessary to remove stubborn odors from furniture upholstery, carpets, curtains, clothes, aerosols are used that are recommended for use on fabrics. They are expertly tested and guarantee the safety of materials.

  6. For maximum convenience, many buyers choose automatic air fresheners. To choose the best one and not overpay, first read their characteristics. Many are designed for large spaces and do not need to be installed in small apartments. There are models for home use that can work for up to 6 months without changing the cylinder and batteries.
