Here’s something you need to consider when buying an air freshener spray. Here are the most common types – the best non-toxic air freshener and aerosol air freshener. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. We have our own recommendation but this guide will help you decide what you need to buy. Read on to know more.
First, let’s define what aerosol is NOT. Aerosol is not the can or the spray. Aerosols can be fog, cloud or steam. In air fresheners, aerosol is the [liquid mist] that is evenly dispersed throughout a gas. It’s the liquid and gas that is expelled out of an aerosol can.
A spray like this is made up of a can or bottle with a [liquid payload]. There is a propellant used to disperse the mist under pressure. Simply open the valve by putting pressure on the button, which’s usually in the nozzle, and the mist is propelled out of a small opening.
Today, aerosol cans are considered [household hazardous waste] in the United States, but they’re still recyclable when empty.
Aerosol air fresheners [emit over 100 different chemicals]. They include VOCs (volatile organic compounds) like formaldehyde and (semi-VOCs) phthalates. They also contain ozone, hydroxyl radicals, and nitrate radicals. And that’s not just from aerosol air fresheners.
In the same document, it’s been proven that these nasty chemicals are also found in various forms of air fresheners like gels, solids, disks, oils, cartridges, diffusers, as well as active or passive evaporators.
Formaldehyde alone is one nasty chemical that you don’t want in your house. But high levels of other VOCs are considered indoor hazardous air pollutants. These emissions can damage the [central nervous system, pulmonary and cardiovascular system]. The most insidious thing is that these effects will take years to manifest. So you won’t even know until it’s too late.
Here’s the deal with big manufacturers, they are not required to disclose all the ingredients for their air fresheners. This makes it easy for them not to include chemical ingredients in the labels. Big companies are not really known for honest disclosures or transparency anyway.
Natural air freshener can use aerosol or a spray mechanism. The spray version is what we’re covering. We consider natural air freshener sprays as the best non-toxic air freshener that you should buy. Natural should be organic, plant-derived, and safe to use.
The best non-toxic air freshener should also be non-irritating and should not trigger asthma.
It means that the best non-toxic air freshener should eliminate and deodorize not just mask the nasty smells. It should also have a fresh and gentle scent that’s long-lasting but not overpowering.
The best natural ingredient should not have harsh chemicals like phthalates, formaldehyde, and other VOCs that are not listed on the manufacturer’s label.
An example is our Siberian Cedar which is made with a proprietary blend of plant-based natural essential oils consisting of Cedar, Fir Needle, Geranium, Clove, natural deodorizer, and natural preservatives.
The combination of essential oils and naturals deodorizers eliminates the nasty smells in the room. It breaks the smells down naturally and renders it odorless.
