Glade Tough Odor Solutions dispenses a fine mist and a fresh scent by depressing the lockable green plastic button on top of a solid aluminum can. It's a mystery what's inside, but the directions say to spray in an upward sweeping motion. Household air quality is instantly freshened with just a few short sprays, or long blasts when that is more suitable. I don't have a pet, listed on the can as one of it's primary purposes, but use it frequently for guests and when cleaning my apartment. Because I know of very few other freshener-sprays I give Glade the highest mark, not only for the quality of the fine mist dispensed but for the unbreakable reliability of the can and the green plastic depressor. At the same time, it's so effective that one use seems to last forever. I don't go through Glade Tough Odor Solutions too quickly. It's a very good product, one that I would buy again.
