This post and giveaway were made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Dobby in recliner chair

Dobby loves to curl up in the recliner chair. So does dog smell. Febreze doesn’t like dog smell.

Do you have pets? If you do then you might be suffering from noseblindness. That’s right. If you have a furry family member as I do then noseblindness is a real possibility.

If you’ve never heard of noseblindness, I assure you it’s real. Over time people get used to the odors around them. Smokers don’t smell the smoke, which is part of the reason so many things smell and taste better after they quit smoking. And unfortunately, pet owners don’t always smell the odors pets leave behind. Even more unfortunately, their guests usually do. In fact, a 2014 global survey from Atomik Research indicated that 49 percent of Americans say that they dread visiting homes with pets because of the smell. Uh oh! And that’s not the only statistic that’s a bummer. 48 percent of Americans say that they could make out someone’s home simply by the odor alone, particularly if that person has a pet. 24 percent of Americans feel that pet smells are the most offensive within in a home (second only to the scent of garbage and coming in above the scent of smoke).

I have experienced noseblindness myself, on at least several occasions that I know of. When we got rid of an old couch last year we couldn’t believe how much better the room smelled. Once we got rid of carpeting. We didn’t know how bad it smelled until we got it out the front door. Once outside the smell nearly knocked us over. A smell doesn’t always mean your pets are doing bad things. Animal scent. It can smell. Even if an animal isn’t destructively marking territory they leave a scent. Cats rub scent glands on people and things to say “these are mine.” The cat box? It smells. Wet dogs? They smell. Dirty dogs? They smell. Your furniture? It smells.

Noseblindness occurs in one of two ways – odor adaptation and odor habituation. Odor adaptation is a decrease in ability to sense odors subsequent to initial exposure. Odor habituation is when you get used to the odors in your everyday life. Understanding what noseblindness is is great, knowing how to prevent it is even better. After all, noseblindness isn’t something that should keep people from adopting pets, nor should it keep guests from coming over to visit. Interesting bit of info. When it comes to their own pet’s smells, the majority of people surveyed (60 percent) said that they would hate it if they thought their guests were thinking their homes smelled of animals.

Dobby playing in snow

It’s fun to watch a puppy playing in the back yard while it’s snowing. It isn’t fun to smell the wet dog smell that comes afterwards.

Now if you have pets no doubt you would want to be sure that whatever you use to deal with noseblindness is safe for pets. In order to use the logo of the ASPCA, the nation’s leading voice for animals, on product packaging the product’s ingredients must be reviewed by the ASPCA and be deemed to be non-toxic to animals when used as directed. The Febreze Air Effects, Fabric Refresher and Car Vent Clip products meet the standard required to appear on the ASPCA Pet Friendly Living List.

Febreze Fabric Refresher can be used daily on fabrics that get a lot of traffic and odor, such as your furniture and dog beds. Febreze Air Effects, something we use often so we have a can in most rooms, is a quick way to refresh air where odors hang around or where you just want to freshen up the room. Febreze Car Vent Clips are great for fighting odors of all sorts in the car. If you have your dog in your car often you might have noticed a dog smell, or dog hair, in the car for days and weeks afterward. You can select the level of scent you want released into the car by adjusting the intensity dial. I am happy knowing that these Febreze products offer an affordable and effective way to deal with life’s smells and noseblindness, and that are safe for pets. I’m also glad they give me a great way of always being ready for guests.

This is a great giveaway! We have a dog, and we use Febreze all the time. It really gets rid of the smells.

Amanda O. February 25, 2015 - 5:26 pm

What an adorable doggie! We probably have noseblindness with our two dogs too.

Pam February 25, 2015 - 5:50 pm

We have five cats. I’m using Febreze so much I should invest in the company!

Crystal February 25, 2015 - 5:56 pm

My husband is much more sensitive to smells than I am. I definitely experience noseblindness in my home. It’s good to air things out & fill it with lovely scents, like Febreeze.

Holly @ Woman Tribune February 25, 2015 - 6:25 pm

This is such an awesome giveaway! I entered. With 5 cats, we could really use some refreshing around here, especially with spring just around the corner. I hope. Spring IS coming, right?

Robin (Masshole Mommy) February 25, 2015 - 6:32 pm

I have 2 smelly little boys, so I am very familiar with Febreze! I go through a lot of it.

Liz Mays February 25, 2015 - 6:39 pm

Febreze can make a huge difference in how guests feel in your house. So many people get so used to their pet’s odors that they don’t notice it.

Mary O'Malley February 25, 2015 - 7:07 pm

Stinkface. I’ve never heard that one before. I’m thinking that febreeze is something I need to get for my place. Mostly because sometimes my kitty tends to leave stray smells from her box. What a cute dog too!

Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly February 25, 2015 - 8:06 pm

I got to try the Febreze Hepa Filter and I LOVE it, I don’t know how I lived without one for so long, we are a Febreze Household for sure but the Hepa filter is the business! 🙂

Theresa February 25, 2015 - 9:23 pm

I wish I could still use Febreze, but the chemicals they put in it caused my boxer to have a severe allergic reaction that required an emergency trip to the vet. I always loved their lavender scent.

Melissa February 25, 2015 - 10:12 pm

I know we are totally noseblind with 3 kids and a dog! We love Febreeze.

Estelle February 26, 2015 - 2:43 am

I never heard of this term before, but it makes a lot of sense. Thanks for sharing great product information to help with it.

pat.navymom February 26, 2015 - 7:41 am

Cleaning and spraying.

Tracey February 26, 2015 - 9:07 am

What an awesome giveaway! My dog is so sweet but man can he smell!

Debbie Denny February 26, 2015 - 10:39 am

We just got the febreze for our truck. Wonderful.

Beth@FrugalFroggie February 26, 2015 - 11:06 am

I have an older dog who has had a few accidents in the house. I work very hard to keep the house from smelling like pets.

Tess February 26, 2015 - 12:02 pm

I use febreeze all the time for pet smells. It works like a charm!

Veronica February 26, 2015 - 4:36 pm

Yep. they can be little stinkers! I love using Febreze. so fresh

Elizabeth @ Food Ramblings February 26, 2015 - 5:05 pm

I love febreze– I use it for EVERYTHING!

Christie February 26, 2015 - 5:43 pm

I bet Febreze takes care of those dog odors, no problem! What a fun giveaway, thanks!

Melinda@LookWhatMomFound...andDadtoo February 26, 2015 - 6:51 pm

I’m definitely not noseblind when it comes to my dogs. We do regular baths and washings of their bedding but Febreze is great for rainy days when wet dog smell is too much to handle

Amanda February 26, 2015 - 10:31 pm

Great giveaway! We have a dog and a cat. Febreze makes great products.

Rosey February 26, 2015 - 10:56 pm

I agree we do get used to smells. That’s why I love me some fresh air coming in the house when the weather rolls around!! Until then, Febreze all the way, esp. after cooking something stinky. 🙂

April Decheine February 28, 2015 - 10:33 am

We used Febreze all the time when we lived on the farm with many pets. We had two dogs and many barn cats.

Tonia @TheChattyMomma March 1, 2015 - 6:26 pm

I’m so grateful for Febreeze. I make sure to freshen the fabrics and use the plugins.

Tamara March 2, 2015 - 9:33 am

I have been using plug in air fresheners. I have two dogs. I do have a sample of Febreze I will be using and trying out this week. Thanks for the ideas! Thanks for the entry to the giveaway too!

Melissa @ This Girls Life Blog March 3, 2015 - 1:05 pm

With pets febreeze is definitely always in our cabinet. I love that I can have it in my car with a freshener too. 🙂
