Does your pet stink sometimes? Mine does. Right now in fact! He’s badly in need of a bath but we’ve been on vacation for the past week week and my dog has been with his favorite dog sitter stinking it up.
My dog is the Golden Retriever on the right.
On her bed!
And scrapping with other dogs hasn’t helped matters either!
I have a particularly strong sense of smell so I don’t usually experience noseblindness — you know, getting accustomed to an odor so that you don’t really notice it anymore — but when my dog needs a bath, I wish I were noseblind!
Noseblindness occurs during two scenarios:
• Odor adaptation is a decrease in ability to sense odors subsequent to initial exposure, and odor habituation. For example, when entering a restaurant, initially the odor of food is often perceived as being strong, but after time the awareness of the odor fades where the smell is not perceptible or the intensity is weaker.
• Odor habituation is when you get used to the odors in your everyday life. You probably don’t notice the odor of your home when you come back from work … but it’s a different story when you return from vacation. Right? That’s odor habituation.
Febreze has teamed up with actor and comedian Jane Lynch to encourage dialogue about a naturally occurring condition that affects many (if not most) pet owners: noseblindness. Noseblindness can affect anyone, but it shouldn’t keep people from adopting pets – or their guests from coming over or sitting in their car.
My husband is so glad to have Febreze for his car. After taking our dog out for a hike every day, he dreads putting our stinky pup into his immaculate car!
My husband already asked for the Febreze spray; the fabric Refresher works great to keep fabrics fresh and odor free. Use daily on fabrics that get a lot of high traffic and odors (dog beds, furniture). Start off every day freshening those fabrics. My husband plays to spray down his car interior with it even though it’s leather.
My husband likes car air fresheners as well. He always buys one from the car wash so he asked for the car Febreze product too! The Vent Clips freshen your car and eliminate tough pet odors that tend to hang inside your car. You simply place the vent clip onto any air vent in your vehicle, set the intensity dial to begin releasing the level of scent of your choice, and replace every 30 days to constantly freshen and eliminate odors in your car. This will make my husband very happy!
There’s also Febreze air spray; Air Effects takes care of the odors in your air. Use it anywhere and anytime pet odors are lingering or when you need a burst of freshness. Great to use in any room, and especially great to store readily available in rooms like the kitchen and bathroom where odors pop up frequently and you quickly want to eliminate them. This is a nice quick fix when someone is coming by!
