This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, however, all opinions are 100% mine.
So we’ve all seen the Febreze commercials over the years, where blind-folded “testers” smell a freshly Febreze’d space, remarking how lovely it all smells, only to take off their blind fold and see the nastiness surrounding them. That would be the definition of “noseblind.”
Have you taken the Febreze #noseblind challenge yourself? I recently put my parents to the challenge. (And, sorry, my gruff dad and shy mom simply would NOT allow me to put their pictures on the blogosphere – sigh!) First, we took a survey asking about the smells in my home. …I, of course, didn’t really detect anything in my home, because it’s my home – I’m used to the smells. Then, we popped some popcorn, and took another survey. It was no surprise I thought the house smelled of popcorn, right? Then, we enjoyed the popcorn, and had an extended playdate with my kiddos. We took a third survey, about an hour and a half later. The smell of popcorn was still there, slightly lingering, but we really had to …erm? stretch to smell it. Finally, we
Then we educated ourselves about the human olfactory system (that’s a fancy word for your sense of smell!), and how our nose can become “desensitized” to odors over time. Hence: noseblind. I experienced this phenomenon a few weeks ago, when I had the oh-so-lovely task of helping my husband haul off scrap wood at the dump. (Don’t be jealous, y’all!) If you’ve never experience the stench of a dump, be thankful. I truly wish I had brought a mask, or a clothes pin, or …something. (Febreze, perhaps?) The first few minutes were agonizing, as the gagging smell was SO strong. But after a while, things got a little less intense because my nose had become used to the odor.
However, once we got back home, my children IMMEDIATELY noticed the smell, because it had mingled in with our clothes. Ugh. …wished I’d had a good ol’ bottle of Febreze then! I may or may not have DOUSED myself in it after that ordeal.
I digress. My long-winded point is this: we all become noseblind to the things we are around for extended periods of time, including the odors in our own household. Febreze doesn’t just mask odors, it eliminates them, and offers a pleasant alternative to stinky odors.
