Noseblindness is a nasal condition in which you become accustomed to the odors around you over time. Did you know that we become “noseblind” to the smells in our own homes? It’s a disturbing thought, I know. No one wants guests to think their house smells bad, especially unbeknownst to the homeowner.
You may have seen one of the Febreze noseblind commercials. This one is my favorite.
It really makes you think, doesn’t it?
I recently tested out the “noseblindness” theory. I invited two girlfriends over for popcorn and a movie. Upon arriving, they both told me that my house smelled “nice”. I had them take an online survey provided by Febreze to state their immediate thoughts of the overall smell in my home. Then I popped some popcorn in the microwave.
Before we dug in to the buttery popcorn, I had my gal pals take another online survey about the smells in my home. Obviously the answers to this survey were different because my home now REEKED of popcorn. Ew!
We watched our movie.
Next, they took a third survey about the odors in my home. Surprisingly, my friends stated that they could no longer smell the popcorn odor in my home. This is interesting, however, because I purposely left the popcorn bag out on the counter. My husband walked in right about this time and he said they all he could smell was popcorn!
Oh no! We had become victims of noseblindess.
Febreze to the rescue! Luckily, Febreze sent me a few items to get my house back to smelling great. Their products contain a molecule known as Cyclodextrin that traps and eliminates bad odors. There is a BIG difference in masking versus eliminating odors. Other air freshener products that I’ve used only work temporarily and the odor comes back. Febreze completely kills odor and it works wonders on popcorn smells!
After a few minutes of letting my Febreze products work, my friends took a final survey. I bet you can guess how that survey turned out. My house has never smelled better! Now, it’s your turn to have a fantastic smelling home.
