Air fresheners is a term used to which work in one of the following four ways: by interfering with your ability to smell by way of a nerve-deadening agent; by coating your nasal passages with an undetectable oil film; by covering up one smell with another; and (rarely) by breaking down the offensive odor.

Air fresheners do little to freshen the air , despite their names. Aerosol fresheners can be harmful to lungs if inhaled in high concentrations or for prolonged periods of time. Solid fresheners may be poisonous if eaten by children or pets. Among the hazardous constituents of aerosols are FORMALDEHYDE, PETROLEUM DISTILLATES, P-DICHLOROBENZENE and AEROSOL PROPELLANTS
