This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions about this post on detecting odors in your home are 100% mine.
My nose is extremely sensitive. Whenever there is a good or bad smell, I’m always the first to notice it. When it’s a bad smell most people don’t notice it until I mention it. The smells I’m most sensitive to are cooking odors, pet odors, cigarette smoke, perfumes and body odors. Whenever I walk into another person home, I always immediately notice how it smells before anything else. Well, recently I got a chance to take the noseblind test with Febreze to see just what guest smell when they visit my home.
What is noseblind? It’s the gradual acclimation to the smells of one’s home, car, or belongings, in which the affected does not notice them (even though their guests do).
I go to the movies and have dinner with two of my friends at least once a month. This month we decided to skip the movie theatre and have a girls night in with Tom Cruise.
We have our girls night in the living room because it’s our largest room, plus it’s right next to the kitchen. I have always thought it smelled like dog poo because of our neighbors 5 dogs. Our balcony is adjacent to their backyard, but if you stepped in my home you would think we owned dogs. I usually keep our balcony door closed, but this night I left it open to see if my guest would notice the smell.
For the noseblind test my guest and I were asked to fill out a few short surveys on the odors we smelled in my home. We took the first survey, and then I popped some popcorn.
Once the popcorn was ready we immediately took another survey about the odors.
Then it was time to start the movie. The movie watched us, because we did more talking, eating and sipping than anything else. Before we knew it almost 2 hours had passed and the credits were rolling. After we stopped the movie we took the third survey. Immediately following the survey we discussed our answers from the previous surveys and completed the noseblind assessment.
Detecting Odors in Your Home
We all pretty much smelled the same thing. It was the stinky scent of my neighbors five dogs and buttered flavored popcorn wafting through the air. To eliminate both odors, I gave the Febreze Air Effects a try. We were amazed within minutes by how we could no longer smell dog poo or the popcorn I had made earlier. Unlike the dog smell, the meadows and rain scent is a smell that I can get used to, and I will definitely purchase it in the future.
Have you tackled the odors in your home, or just gone noseblind to them?
