Have you ever sat there and wondered what a room spray is? Well, in this fact-filled, totally sensible article, we'll explore room sprays in great depth, leaving you with the knowledge of what they are, how to use them, and perhaps even how to get the best out of them. Let's go!

Room Sprays: What are they and how to use them

What are room sprays?

Ok, I guess we'll start with the basics.

Simply put, room sprays are products designed to freshen up the air and create a pleasant scent in a room. They come in a spray bottle and contain a mixture of fragrance oils and alcohol - Ours contain 70% alcohol which kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria that can cause odours.

When pumped into the air, the fragrance molecules are dispersed, masking unpleasant odours and leaving a pleasant scent.

It's important to use room sprays in a well-ventilated area and avoid spraying them directly on surfaces to prevent damage or staining - unless that surface is fabric.

What's the point of a room spray?

Room sprays are ideal if you want to add a quick blast of fragrance to a room. They're basically an alternative to something like wax melts or candles for those that don't want to use a flame.

As for us, they're something we typically use once we've cleaned a room just to freshen it up a little more once we're done.

I say "we" but I probably mean my wife. Not that I don't clean, I do. Like I do the dishes sometimes - she prefers to do them as I'm slower - and I do the washing, and put stuff away. But she likes to clean. She's one of those "oh yeah, give me that scrub baby I'm gonna get DEEP into this skirting board!"

So I always know if she's cleaned as I'll just sniff and go "ah, there's snow fairy" or whatever one she's used. We usually go with Snow Fairy or Starry Night if you're wondering.

Three Top Tips for Room Sprays

  1. Spot Test for Peace of Mind: Before going all out, give your room spray a quick test on a discreet area of any fabric or surface. This ensures the spray doesn’t leave any marks or stains, keeping your home looking as fabulous as it smells.

  2. Elevate with Elevation: Spritz your room spray towards the ceiling or into the air, rather than directly on surfaces. This allows the fragrance to disperse evenly throughout the room, creating an all-encompassing aromatic experience.

  3. Timing is Everything: Use room sprays right before guests arrive or after cleaning to refresh the space. It's the perfect finishing touch to make your home feel inviting and impeccably cared for.

Is a room spray better than a reed diffuser?

Room sprays and reed diffusers essentially give you the same result - a fragranced room - but they go about it with different methods.

Reed diffusers are more constant. The fragrance never really leaves the room as the reeds are continuously giving out some sort of fragrance - as long as you remember to flip the reeds and they're in a high traffic area.

Meanwhile, the scent from a room spray will only ever be there IF you spray it - obviously.

Reed diffusers are ideal if you can't be bothered to do anything and just want to leave it in a room - like the bathroom. Whilst room sprays are great if you like variety when it comes to scents and want to be able to mix it up. It's a little harder to mix up the scents with lots of different reed diffusers.

How long do room sprays last?

I guess this might vary depending on which room spray you use, but you should get a good couple of hours from a few blasts. We tend to give two to three good pumps in the room and we'll notice the smell later on in the day.

You might want to pump it three times, two times, or have a wild night and blast out nine pumps in a row. It's all down to you and your personal preference.

Our room sprays are 150ml and will give you around 500+ pumps. So if gave a room 3 pumps a day you'll get 166 days out of a single room spray.

Strategic Spritzing: Uncovering the Best Spots for Your Room Spray

When it comes to where's the best place to spray your room spray, it's going to come down to personal preference and what room you want fragranced. Generally speaking, they're more likely to be used in places with fabric. So living rooms, bedrooms, or places where people might gather.

But you can pump it out anywhere you want. Some people might want to have a pump on their bed, or their bathroom, or perhaps even in their car if they're feeling up for it.

Heck, you can even take your room spray with you and pump it on the go! There's nothing stopping you having a pump on the bus if you really want to get wild.

People might give you weird looks though.

The Value of a Scented Spritz: Are Room Sprays a Good Investment?

Absolutely! If you're after a swift and straightforward solution to envelop your space in delightful aromas, then room sprays are a no-brainer. With our room sprays, you're looking at an approximate cost of only 2.4p per pump. Imagine transforming the ambiance of your room into a fragrant oasis for a few hours, all for the small sum of around 7.2p.

It's quality fragrance at a pinch of the price! 

From Air to Wear: Can Room Sprays Double as Your Personal Scent?

Ever thought about spritzing your favourite room spray a little closer to home? Like, on your clothes or maybe even as a personal fragrance? While our room sprays are designed to freshen up your living spaces with their captivating aromas, dabbling them as a personal scent is a bit of an off-label use.

It's tempting, right? However, it's essential to remember that room sprays are formulated differently than perfumes, focusing on scent longevity in SPACES rather than SKIN compatibility. So, while they might smell divine, it's best to use products specifically designed for body application when it comes to your skin.

BUT... that doesn't mean you can't give your clothes and quick blast before putting them on.

Choosing your signature scent: What scent is the best?

This one is totally down to personal preference as everyone is different when it comes to scent. We should know, we do a lot of random stuff and not everything is for everyone. But generally speaking, you probably want to go for scents that you like.

Or you can do what many people do and simply go for "fresh" smells. Even more so if you plan to use a room spray as a "finishing touch" once you've cleaned a room.

But again, this is a personal preference and it's up to you.
