good bathroom air fresheners
Ok. Share your preferences!
I need a new air freshener for my bathroom. I have a tiny bathroom.
The room doesn't smell, but I like a fresh whiff!

I've tried the traditional block one, and one that you tip to get a stronger scent.

But neither seem to last long, and, as I say, my bathroom is teeny.

Also, there is no plug socket in there, so plug in ones wouldn't work.

And, I don't like nasty spray ones! Though I have a nice essential oil one.

over and out 11-04-2013 07:04 PM

ive had the ones with sticks that come out the top of them, they smell really nice and you can keep topping it up with oils etc

over and out I think you may be referring to reed diffusers. I really like reed diffusers, especially the ones Yankee Candle make.

The reed diffusers do work pretty well and they last for quite a while. They're not particularly strong but in a tiny room it probably would be.

Maybe you could try burning some incense/joss sticks.

Burning incense is a lovely way to make a room or your home smell lovely, I often burn incense, high quality incense will smell really lovely when burned :)

Thanks. :)

Unfortunately my accommodation doesn't allow candles/incense so that wouldn't work. But I might give reed diffusers a try if I can find a scent I like.

Reed diffusers are great! I love the air wick linen and 'something else' one.

Beautifully Broken 12-04-2013 08:07 AM

There's loads of different smelling reed diffusers! Sweet pea is nice :)

Stellata 12-04-2013 08:10 AM

Thanks. :)

Anyone know the best shop? I have Tesco, Sainsbury's, Wilkinsons, Debenhams, M&S, BHS.....

Dunelm mill!

Pi.R^2 12-04-2013 12:14 PM

Get some pot pourri!

Cacoethes 12-04-2013 01:46 PM

I get my reed diffusers from tesco.

Dunelm mill is awesome though!

Stellata 12-04-2013 03:38 PM

Thanks all.

As far as I know there's not a Dunelm Mill near me.
Jenna, wouldn't pot pourri get kind of damp in a mini bathroom and go mouldy?!

I got some reed diffusers from Tescos, their own make. 'Mysterious Touch' which is cedarwood and bergamot, apparently, though basically it smells just floral. It's meant to last 6 weeks, but we'll see.

pixiedust_11 12-04-2013 04:24 PM

:o Wilkinsons have an online shop?

Well I'll be damned...

Stellata 12-04-2013 05:29 PM

Yeah, they do, for some reason! Me, I just pop down there!

Beautifully Broken 12-04-2013 07:58 PM

Home Bargains if you have one near you...I'm sure there was some for like 99p or 1.99...Totally not promoting where I work :P

Mrs Sam 12-04-2013 09:08 PM

What about some nice smelling soaps and stuff? Then you can use them and buy new ones with different smells. Bath bombs also usually have quite a strong smell that last a whole.

Stellata 13-04-2013 07:30 AM

No Home Bargains near here that I know of, but I've only been here 2 and a half months so far!

Sam, I don't have a bath, just a shower, though I could just stick the bath bomb on a dish! [Though it might start to dissolve when the room gets steamy!]

There's no substitute for an aerosol next to the crapper (Y)
