I was disappointed over the false claims that Febreze has out there. Their commercials state that it eliminates odor from the air not just masks it...it does not. While the scent is very nice and it doesn't overpower the room, nor does it "mix" with whatever odor you are trying to eliminate making an even worse combination of odors, it does not eliminate the odor. It works for a while, but then as the Febreze disappears, the original odor remains. I used it to eliminate cooking odors like garlic and onions, fish and other strong things like that, and it did work initially in that you couldn't really smell those unpleasant odors immediately after spraying the Febreze. BUT, after a few hours I could once again smell the garlic, or fish or whatever. But I can say that it smells much nicer than other brands which smell "thick". This seems light and not so overpowering. But as I stated, it doesn't do what it says, doesn't really eliminate odor.
