Febreze and other chemical "air fresheners" actually contain toxic substances that they release in the air, the image shows a short text from the environmental assessment of the Environmental Working Group 2007-2009 on Febreze Air Effects Just stop using these. There are much better, natural ways to get rid of bad smells.....

    Agreed! They also give me a headache :-/ I read that beeswax candles actually help to purify the air (while other candles pollute it). Still, I do not think the answer is the mass production of beeswax. I wonder if there is a way to design a plant/ organic-based candle that can have a similar effect on air quality while leaving the busy bees alone :-)
