Febreze Set & Refresh

October 3, 2011

Living in a house with two children in diapers – You get the FUNK.

Diaper Funk.

Being that we live here on a daily basis, I’m used the the smell.  But I’m so paranoid that others who aren’t used to it walk into my home and suddenly smell this whiff of dirty diapers.

I haven’t had any complaints – but then again, when was the last time you walked into a friends house and said… ‘Man, your house smells!’

I had been looking for a way to get some fresh scents in my entry way.. But being that there are no plug-ins in the entry, I had limited options.  I often sprayed some Febreze into the entryway just to freshen it up a little bit, but that only lasts so long.

In comes Febreze Set & Refresh.


Febreze Set & Refresh provides 30 days of continuous odor elimination without the use of plugs or batteries.  No need to cut, open any weird packages or worry about spillage of oils.

It’s small and sleek design with no need for power makes the Febreze Set & Refresh a fail-proof option for adding freshness to your home.

Simply push the insert into the unit, adjust the back for the amount of scent you would like released, and enjoy.

I was looking around my entry way,and realized that I don’t have any place (like a table) to set the unit! Then I realized that due to the small size, I could get creative.

I have these sconces on my wall in the entryway stairs that are empty.DSC00684

I was able to place the Set & Refresh unit inside the first one, and now can enjoy the Fresh Linen Scent as I’m walking through the stairs, or through the front door.  I hope others smell this as well vs. smelling my diapers! SO convenient and even hidden – which I personally enjoy.DSC00685

One thing to note:  I saw the Set & Refresh unit in my mom’s house the other day near her garbage area.  I asked her how she liked it (without her knowing that I am reviewing the same item) and she mentioned that she couldn’t really smell it a whole lot.  I, too didn’t smell it very much.  BUT. then I looked at it and realized that she had the unit ‘closed’.  To control the release of more scent, you simply lift the bottom half from the top half, and it makes the back circles open up – creating more release of scent.DSC00687

Good to Know! Now she is noticing the scent more frequently and loves her Set & Refresh.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Febreze and received a Set & Refresh unit plus refills to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.


  1. What a great idea! to put them in the empty sconces. I’ve been looking around for something to put in the powder room (also where I store my Cloth diaper pail) something like this would fit nicely in there. And I don’t like strong smells, so it’s good to know it isn’t too strong if shut closed a little.

    Oh my…your post reminded me of when I had 3 in diapers at the same time. My twins and my son are 17 months apart and yeah I recall the Diaper Funk! I just now got my son out of diapers so thankfully that part of my life is complete and no more smelly diapers or paranoia. The best thing about blogs like yours is finding out that my life is normal after all:) Great post.

  3. I keep my diapers in an open pail in the bathroom, (we are in a tiny apartment). Usually I keep a scentsy burner going in the kitchen, but it doednt alwsys get to the bathroom, so im going to have to try this myself. Great idea!

    I love the idea of putting them in wall sconces and I love your wall sconces! I have a Febreeze Set and Refresh and reading this reminded me its time to go get a refill!

  5. LOL, THE FUNK! Totally cracks me up. We have the baby and a dog, and I really hate dog funk. Possibly more than baby funk. I haven’t tried these, but swear by the Febreze Fabric Refresher.

    I am going to disagree with the use of any artificial scents. These are mostly phthalate-based, definitely not good for you or your children. There are long-lasting effects on the body from these chemicals.

  7. I have a one year old who is still in diaper and trust me when I say he smells! I love Febreeze and I love the covers

    I have coupons for these, but never used. I will buy next time i’m at wal-mart. Sound impressive.

    I wasn’t so sure that these would work well at my house, but you wrote such a good review that I am now going to try them! 🙂
