Say bye, bye to that doggy smell in your home

Every so often my living room furniture needs some freshening up.  That's most likely because I let my dog sleep on the couch!  But even without pets, furniture collects dust and absorbs all those various odors wafting through the air. Recently I tried **Glade Fabric and Air** to refresh the furniture, and was happy with the results.

**Glade Fabric and Air** is sold in several scents and I chose the Pet Odor Eliminator variety. It has a relatively faint ''fresh'' scent.  Currently this product is sold with the following scents:

- Clean Linen
- Fresh Scent for Pets
- Powder Fresh
- Tropical Mist

To use this product I removed the cushions from the coach and love seat and sprayed them with a layer of mist. I then set the cushions on my balcony to dry out. You should prevent children and pets from having direct contact with the wet spray for safety's sake.I then lightly sprayed the back of the couches.  Within an hour everything was dry and much fresher smelling.

**Glade Fabric and Air** is designed to eliminate odors - not just cover them up. The manufacturer says they employ MOC Compounds (Malodor Counteracting) to remove the undesirable scents from fabrics, carpets, drapes, and other household linens. So far I've only used it on furniture though.

Overall I was happy with **Glade Fabric and Air**.  Almost all of that ''doggy smell'' was removed from my furniture and the whole place seemed to smell better.  My only complaint is that it takes some time for it to dry, but at least it worked!

I bought this to freshen up my laundry and use in a pinch when I wanted to make something smell fresh again instead of musty before it was worn. Unfortunately, it isn't quite what I was looking for. It's okay but it just kind of covers scents and doesn't really get rid of them.

When I used this in my living room and pet areas, it did help the smell somewhat, but I could still smell undertones of the pets in the area. It more or less just masked the odor and toned it down so it was more tolerable. The product is floral and tropical smelling so it's a bit stronger than I realized. Also, it has a spray bottle and is not an aerosol so it's harder to really spray all around like I want.

For fabric, the spray bottle is great but the scent of this doesn't freshen up my laundry like I want either. If I use it on the dirty laundry, it masks the smell but after a little while, they start to smell musty again with a tropical scent. It's not a winner in my book. I tried this on clean clothes to spruce them up and the smell irritated me too much and I had to change. I didn't get an odor eliminator with this. It just masked the smells temporarily.

Performance
It masks smells and doesn't eliminate them.

Scent
The scent is nice but when you use enough product to get results, the scent is overpowering and too floral and tropic. It makes me cough if I use too much of it.

Glade makes an okay odor eliminating spray.

By 

from lakeland, florida

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

I purchased this product because I use Glade scent products throughout my home. I usually buy Febreze in the spray, but I figured it could not hurt to try out this spray, especially since I had a coupon. I found a few things that I did not like about it. First, the scent is different than the candle or the timed sprayers. The scent I purchased in the spray bottle did not smell the same and I did not like it as much. Second, the scent did not last nearly as long as Febreze. It seemed to hang in the air for awhile, but within about twenty minutes, I could not smell it anymore. Also, it seemed to more cover up the odors instead of eliminating them. I still noticed the odor underneath the scent I was spraying and I could smell it again fully after the scent of the spray dissipated. I do not think I would purchase this product again even if I had a coupon. If there were no other sprays available, I might purchase it, but otherwise, I will stick with my favorite Febreze scent.

Really Works!

By 

from USA

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

You know how there are all those commercials advertising how Glade does not just mask bad scents, it eliminates them? Well, it's true! I don't know how they do it. It must be magic. But, after I spray anything, the scent is replaced by the Glade scent for a while, but then once the Glade scent wares off, there really is no more scent! Plus, you can use this spray anywhere and on anything and it will always work! I have already successfully used it on and in my bathroom, couch, kitchen garbage can, fridge, smelly dog, socks, armpits when I forget to take a shower, smelly pants, dirty underwear that I desperately need to re-use, and even in my mouth to get rid of bad morning breath! People often compliment me on my odor-free house and body!

Performance
Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator works incredibly well! And it also works incredibly quickly. I am odor-free after only a minute of spraying!

Scent
There is initially a pleasant scent, but when that scent fades, there is no scent, which to me is just as nice.

Light scent that neutralizes odors.

By 

from In Upstate, NY

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

I have been using Glade for quite sometime now. We have two small dogs, and I like to make certain that our home is free from doggy odor. At least once a week, I give our area rugs (we have hard wood floors), furniture, upstairs bedroom carpeting, curtains, and dog beds a very light spray. It dries quickly and leaves a lovely scent that truly eliminates all odors. It is not overly strong and "perfumey." It is just fresh and nice. It is especially nice in the winter when one can not open the windows and air the house out. My daughters love to use it on their car upholstery. I have also sprayed, lightly, bedroom comforters, winter coats, and fabric totes. It is not expensive and frequently goes on sale, and there are always coupons.

Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator Great for Pet Odors

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

Odors on furniture can cause odor in the air and often, the fabric isn’t necessarily dirty- it is just in need of a quick burst of freshness and this is exactly what you get when you use **Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator.**

**Cleaner Facts and Commentary:**

Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator is a pump- spray product with a clean, air freshener scent and easy application. It can be sprayed directly on fabrics and upholstery or directly into the air as an air freshener. The product contains special malodor counteracting (MOC) compounds that help break up odors rather than merely mask them, like some air fresheners are prone to do.

Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator is very similar to Febreeze and other fabric spray products. I find it most helpful when I want to eliminate pet odors. As any pet owner knows, just a minute spent on the couch with your pet can leave a smell and the smell will not go away. A few quick pumps with Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator and the odor is gone.

One area where Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator isn’t very useful is as an air freshener. The scent is strong, but the liquid that sprays out is too heavy and much of it will fall straight to the ground. Ordinary air freshener sprays work better because they are fine mists that dissolve in the air. This product cannot do that- spray it in the air, and you can visibly see the large droplets descend to the floor.

**Bottom Line Viewpoint:**

My bottom line with this product is that it works well on fabrics and is very good at eliminating pet odors. The manufacturer claims that it can double as an air freshener, but I don’t recommend its use for this purpose. Use it strictly as a fabric refresher and you can’t go wrong.

great glad fabric odor eliminator

By 

from Chino Hills , CA

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

The Glade Fabric and Air Odor Eliminator is a great product. At first, I was hesitant to use it because I have always been a long time fan of Febreeze products. However, the Glad odor eliminator works just as well. I use the odor eliminator to spray in our rooms, living room and even on clothes. It has a pleasant scent and helps odor disappear. When I spray the Glad odor eliminatior on my clothes, I usually leave the clothes hanging overnight so that odor will completely disappear. I would recommend this product to consumers, especially when it is on sale at drug stores. I have enjoyed all Glade products and believe they make reliable and trustworthy products. I tend to use both Febreeze and the Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator. I also use the Glad odor eliminator in our trash can once we take the trash out to get rid of the strong smell of trash. Therefore, this is a very handy product.

Perfect for eliminating odors and refreshing fabrics

By 

from Pottstown, PA

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

I had been using Febreeze, but found it was becoming increasingly more expensive. When I came across some coupons for the Glade brand Fabric Refresher, I decided to give it a try and was quite pleased with the results. I don't LOVE the scents as much as I loved the Febreeze Lavendar and Vanilla scent, but since it's hard to find that Febreeze scent any more, the Glade brand works just as well for less money.

I keep a bottle of the fabric spray in our bedroom and give the sheets and blankets a very light mist in the morning before I make the bed. The mist dries fairly quickly and leaves a nice clean scent on the sheets. My sheets smell freshly washed all week before I change and wash them again and I like the clean fresh scent on the blankets. Blankets, especially in winter, can tend to smell a little stale and this completely eliminates that issue.

I also like to give our couches and chairs a light spritz before I vaccum them on a bi-weekly basis. We have a cat - he doesn't shed much and he doesn't smell, but I still like to vacuum regularly. The Glade Odor eliminator just gives that extra boost of freshness and leaves a long lasting clean smell throughout the house.

Glade air freshener is a nice scent

By 

from Glendora, CA

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

Glade tough odor solutions fabric and air freshener is a fantastic odor fighter. It eliminates pet odors like the wet dog smell. My dog was accidently let in the house after he had jumped in the pool. He immediately went to the sofa and jumped up. He ignored my daughter who was calling him so she could get him outside before I found his wet butt on my recently cleaned sofa. I walked in to find her dragging him off the sofa. Both of them froze when they saw me but before I could open my mouth the dog lept off the sofa and ran out the door knocking my daughter on her butt. I laughed so hard and then dried the sofa as best I could with a towel and sprayed it with Glade tough odor solutions, pet odor eliminator and prayed for the best. After dinner the sofa was still damp but it did not smell. The following day it was dry and still did not smell bad. I waited for the odor to return as it so often does but it never did. My sofa still does not smell like wet dog thanks to Glade.

Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator is best!

By 

from Canton, OH

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator is much better than the competition! I like this fabric spray much better than the leading brand. It is much more effective in eliminating odors in fabrics and in the air. It eliminates odors. It doesn't just cover them up. The scents available are all fresh and clean smelling. They aren't too strong at all. I'm a pet owner but I don't want that fact to be obvious when I have guests in my home. Since I've been using Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator my home always smells fresh and clean. And the scent is long lasting. I use it before I go to work in the morning and my house still smells fresh when I come home in the afternoon. I use this spray everywhere. The livingroom, bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen. It's great to use to freshen shoes and jackets or coats, the items that you don't want to wash after every wear but could use a little freshening. I use this product daily.

It works-not long lasting though :(

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Glade Fabric & Air Odor Eliminator:

At one time we had a cat and a dog, a dog who decided to use our home (temporarily) as a litterbox- yeah, he didn't last long.

So we discovered the Glade Odor Elimator spray for use after scrubbing a particular pet stain or to quickly dispel litter odor after the cat took a dump, before a visitor arrived.

I found that it was a light, refreshing spray that didn't have a heavy perfume smell but it took away the pet odor, I wasn't sneezing from the chemical smell...

It's safe to use on fabrics and carpeting. I sprayed my sofa, chairs once in awhile to freshen up the home and was very pleased.

It's conveniently priced below other odor remover sprays, so it's easy for anyone to own. Comes in a 22 oz. bottle and can also freshen up stinky gym bags, dirty laundry piled on the floor waiting for the next wash, kids backpacks...the possibilities are endless...just wished the freshening scent lasted longer...but I guess you get what you pay for
