Some spaces like the bathroom, mudroom, or garbage area would be well served with a fan that vents to the outside. Unfortunately sometimes the space or budget doesn’t allow for it, in which case we’re stuck with a stinky room and not many options. We round up a selection of time release air fresheners for your home to help deal with the stink. TimeMist Plus Automatic Air Freshener
A fairly attractive looking device, the TimeMist Plus has an adjustable timer lets you set the spray at 7.5, 15, or 30 minute intervals. An LED and audible tone indicate the need for a fragrance or battery refill. Comes with an unusually long 5 year warranty too.
Glade Sense & Spray Automatic Freshener
The Glade Sense & Spray mixes it up with a unique look as well as a motion sensor instead of timed interval. When it senses someone passing by it releases a fragrance spray and then locks out for 20 minutes so you’re not getting continuous blasts. The shape of the dispenser is designed to blend into home decor, looking somewhat like a sculptural vase piece; an original white petal-shaped version is also available if the faux-stone finish isn't your cup of tea.
Air Freshener DVR Hidden Camera
Here's a twist on your run of the mill air freshener: this one comes with a built-in hidden color camera and mini DVR that records onto a SD card. The motion sensor starts recording when it senses someone enter the room, and can mask off areas so your pets don't set it off. The unit plugs straight into the wall and is a discrete way to add security monitoring to your home.
Munchkin Arm and Hammer Nursery Fresheners
There's no tech here but these fun and funky discs are perfect for dropping into tight areas such as diaper bags and pails. The baking soda is supposed to be a safe and natural way to eliminate odors over other chemical fragrance sprays, perfect for the little kiddies in the room.
