The Christmas holiday season is finally here and many of us have already begun our holiday shopping, meal planning and of course, holiday cleaning! For me, I started all of that back on October 1st and now I’ve kicked it into high gear. I admit, I’m about 75% done with my holiday shopping and this week I’m concentrating on my cleaning.

One thing I’m tackling this week is all of those funky smells that seem to accumulate when we shut our windows for the season. It’s cold & windy here and as I walk through my house, I detected some minor odors that I’m working on getting rid of. All of my linens are being laundered, carpets are getting cleaned and I’m hitting all of my non-washables with Febreze! That includes my sofa, mattresses, window treatments, floor pillows and more!

Febreze is back again this year with their important, but funny message about all of those things around our home’s that seem to cause a stink! Did you see their video last year called the #12Stinks of Christmas? It’s absolutely hilarious, but does remind us all to clean the items that can cause odors in our homes. The video features beatboxing superstar Doug E. Fresh and hip-hop enthusiast @ItsDougThePug.

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!

Fall Cleaning with Febreze

Febreze Odor Eliminator has been my go-to cleaning product for over 4 years now. It’s the ONLY odor-eliminator in my cleaning arsenal. Over the years, I’ve personally found that it does an effective job at eliminating pet odors, nasty food smells, musty smells from my basement, mold odors from wet (now dry) towels, smoke odors and more! Matter of fact, my mother burnt an entire pan of bacon just last weekend and that smell stunk up my house pretty quick. I went through the kitchen and dining room with Febreze and in less than 30 minutes, that nasty burnt bacon smell was gone! Totally gone!

Now that the holidays are almost here, Mom and I are busy doing our holiday cleaning! We are tackling all of these projects now, so that as we get closer to Christmas, we can just spot clean as we go along. When guests visit my home this holiday season, I want them to feel welcomed and of course…I want my house to smell fresh & clean!

    I enjoyed the video it was cute and funny! I use Febreze all the time. I am never with out it. . It is a Wonderful product. I dont remember any of my Holidays where I had a Bad stink. That I couldn’t get rid of.
    I usually could only smell the onions and celery from the stuffing and the turkey in the oven. Which I love to smell! Burn’t popcorn in the microwave is a Hard one to get rid of for me. It just seems to linger on. 🙂
