  2. There was a study recently that showed how air fresheners can be carcinogenic, it's insane to think how much everyday products can affect our health, and it's only ever for the worse!

  3. Laura, that is absolutely frightening!
    I love my air fresheners and never even thought it could be a carcinogenic. We try and use more natural products when we clean...I react badly to strong chemical smells.
