I love decorating my house and making DIY improvements, so I really enjoy inviting friends over to show off my latest project. Lately I’ve been trying to host a dinner at least once a month, and sometimes I have friends over for more impromptu coffee or drinks. Of course, everyone knows that Lucy will be here! She’s probably one of the things people look forward to most about coming over to my house! Just in time for my next party, I’ve found a new dog mom approved way to keep my home smelling fresh.
I may be known for having a major dog-loving home, but that doesn’t mean I want it to smell like that! Something that I think makes a good host is to keep your house fresh and clean so company can just drop in without much notice.
I was recently approached by Febreze™ to test out their new Febreze Home™ device. It’s so much more than an ordinary air freshener! It’s a Wifi and Thread™ enabled gadget that learns when a room needs a burst of freshness and when it doesn’t while also working to eliminate surprise odors from cooking, pets or bathrooms with the press of a button using the Febreze Connect App. Using the app, you can also increase or decrease the amount of scent in your home.
I was really hooked when I learned that it ties into my Nest™ thermostat to automatically allow scents to release when the fan kicks on so the fragrance is more evenly distributed around the house. How smart is that? I love anything that connects to my Nest!
I set the device up in an outlet right off of my kitchen in the living room, which is also right next to an air vent so I could see how it works with my Nest. I thought the device blended in really well with my decor, and I like having it out in the open because it becomes a great conversation starter. As soon as someone asks about it I can pull out my phone to show off the app and conveniently transition into showing off Lucy’s latest photos in my camera roll! Some habits hold strong, and dog moms just love showing off our latest photos!
Dog Mom Approved: Febreze Home
Febreze Home™ lets you control how much scent you want and when you want it so your home is fresh – and odor free – when it matters most. To use it, just connect and launch the Febreze Connect™ App. You can customize settings for each room with more devices, so each room could have it’s own scent experience. The device also detects temperature and humidity in the room, and you can see that in the app at any time. When you need a new scent, Febreze Home uses NOTICEables and Unstopables refills. I checked it out, and there are a ton of options, so you can find whatever suits your taste.
