How to Keep it Funky Fresh All Season Long with Febreze

JOY to the smells that fill our home each holiday season!

The holidays are such a great time.  I love having our family and friends over for fellowship and fun.  The only problem I really have is the funky smells that I have to cover up prior to their visit.


 I know this precious sweet baby boy gives you the impression of that fresh baby scent, but I gotta tell you, looks can be deceiving!  Just today I was singing the following as I was overcome by the formula laden diaper surprise that was left for me to clean up.

“Stinky diaper,

Stinky diaper.

You sure got one,

You sure got one.

I am gonna change you,

I am gonna change you,

Cause it stinks,

Cause it stinks!”


I live in a home with boys, dogs, and a baby!  Talk about some obnoxious odors!  It can truly be unbearable at times with poopy diapers, nasty athletic sweat drenched items, and two dogs.  You can probably imagine when all three get mixed at once…..well, it’s over for anyone who comes near the front door.  We find ourselves apologizing and blaming the dogs.

In preparation for the holidays, we use a wide variety of air freshening techniques.  From lighting incense and walking throughout the home hoping the scent will cling to the carpet and curtains….or hold to the fabrics of our dear sweet children’s clothing.   We use scented spray cleaners and three wick candles just hoping to get the scent of the season to overpower our “normal” household smells that we have become noseblind to.


Does this ring true for your family?

“Mom burnt the casserole, dad left the trash in the garage, and Uncle Jeff has been in the bathroom a little too long – being home for the holidays isn’t always what we imagine.”

Don’t get us wrong, the holidays are great, but in reality, they can literally stink!   So if your family is like mine, and you are trying to prep your home for the holidays,  fear not!   As you prepare to be the hostess-with-the-mostess, Febreze is here to help you embrace the jolliest time of the year with ugly-sweater-clad-arms wide open.  It’s the return of “The #12Stinks of Christmas” featuring beatboxing superstar Doug E. Fresh and hip-hop enthusiast @ItsDougThePug, here to help eliminate any stinks the holidays throw your way this year. Febreze’s full lineup of festive odor-eliminating Air Effects, Candles, NOTICEables are here to keep your home guest-ready all season long!

12 Musty Stockings

The stockings may be hung by the chimney with care, but after a year of being buried in your basement, that musty stink is anything but joyful. Revive your holiday stockings with Febreze Fabric Refresher to eliminate lingering odors and leave behind a light, fresh holiday scent.

11 Burnt Cookies
Maybe the day of your party wasn’t the best time to try out that ambitious new cookie recipe. Use a Febreze Candle to eliminate any stinky, smoky odors from your kitchen and ask your cousin to pick up a pie from the bakery on his way over.

10 Flushes per Minute
The endless cycle of guests in your home means your downstairs toilet is getting one of the year’s biggest workouts. Plug a Febreze NOTICEable in the bathroom and let the two alternating scents continuously eliminate those not-so-festive odors.

9 Casseroles A-Cookin’
Your Aunt Barb had one too many eggnogs, and reminiscing about her sorority days has taken precedence over watching the oven timer. Light a Febreze Candle before everyone starts to notice the overwhelming stench of burnt onions, and eliminate odors to keep your home continuously smelling as fresh as it looks.

8 Frying Latkes
Nothing says happy holidays like a hot plate of latkes. But once the smell of greasy potatoes makes its way from your kitchen all the way to your family room, the aroma goes from appetizing to unpleasant. Don’t stress, Febreze Air Effects helps keep odors at bay and lets you breathe happy through the holidays.

7 Diaper Bins
Your new niece is an adorable bundle of joy, but you’d rather get a pile of coal under the tree than take another whiff of those dirty diapers. How can something so little stink SO much? Light a Febreze Candle to continuously eliminate odors (without offending her parents) so you can breathe happy all season long.

6 Boys in One Bedroom
You missed your son so much that his return home for holiday break seems like a Christmas miracle. But then…you notice the giant bag of dirty laundry he’s dragging behind him and remember why his sister was always the favorite. Use a Febreze NOTICEable to prevent your whole home from smelling like a dorm room by continuously eliminating locker room stinks.

5 Pugs in Sweaters
Fido may have better holiday attire than you do, but his penchant for festivity leaves behind a distinct parfum.  Use Febreze Fabric Refresher to instantly eliminate pet odors and leave behind a light, fresh holiday scent.

4 Impromptu Guests
Your in-laws are here and they’re early…again. Spray the house with Febreze Air Effects to instantly eliminate odors, and leave your impromptu guests wondering how you manage to keep your home smelling so fresh all season long.

3 Smelly Chairs
You know your grandmother’s hand-me-down chairs smell like years of love, and the musty scent reminds you of her living room. Unfortunately your guests don’t see it that way. Plug in a Febreze NOTICEable by the antiques to eliminate odors and leave behind a light, fresh holiday scent.

2 Mounds of Mess
With ten cousins throwing their sweaty socks into one giant laundry pile, the mounds of mess can pile up quickly.  Not only do the mounds take up half the guest room, but they also stink.  Take the Febreze Fabric Refresher to the mound and don’t quit until you are smelling light, fresh holiday scents instead of damp clothes.

And one family that really needs Febreze!
No matter what stink plagues your home this holiday season, know that Febreze is there to eliminate odors so you can breathe happy and focus on the joy of the season!

    I had to laugh when I saw the comment about the stinky diaper. It is amazing how something so cute and little can create the worst smells. They seriously need Febreeze for kids and dogs.

    Febreze, I was sold on it a long time ago. Now they have so many other things, for lack of a better word, AMMO against the foul orders that we humans mostly, unintentionally leave in our wake.
