Febreze Odor Eliminating Candle: Review
I'm lucky that my husband is a great cook, but, sometimes it's hard to feel lucky when a lingering smell of cumin fills the entire house for days after the meal is done.
Homemade taco night was the perfect chance to put the Febreze Candle to work. After reading the instructions and trimming the wick to 1/4 of an inch, I lit the candle and let my husband cook up a storm.
Performance: When dinner was done, the kitchen was the only place that had a hint of cumin. I continued to let the candle burn for another 45 minutes as we finished dinner.
I was impressed by how cumin-free the downstairs was. I was even more impressed by the fact that I could smell a slight hint of apple and spice from the candle, but it in no way overwhelmed my home. This is particularly important if household members are sensitive to smells.
Cons: My only problem with the candle came when I blew it out after 90 minutes.
The candle continued to smoke for a few minutes, sending a very smoky smell back into the air. It faded away after a few minutes, but I was disappointed that I had a slightly smoky smell in my kitchen that even my kids noticed.
The Bottom Line: Overall, though, the Febreze Candle is a great buy for the money. It sits discretely in any location and eliminates odors with a special core that traps smells. It burns for 30 hours without filling your home with overwhelming scent.
