Holiday Home Entertaining Tips with the Honeywell with Febreze Freshness Cool & Refresh Fan {Review & Giveaway}

Honeywell with Febreze logo
As we head into the holiday entertaining season, I'm looking forward to gatherings with family, visiting with friends, and all of the tasty meals that will surely be a part of both. What can I say? I've never met a pumpkin pie that I didn't like!

But when it comes to entertaining here at home, there is always the added worry of making sure our house is up to par for guests. Even if I've already prepped the food and put together a fabulous playlist, it's important to not forget that cleanliness and scent are just as important when throwing a party.

Fortunately, Evette Rios, home expert and The Chew correspondent, has a few tips to make your home inviting for all of your guests during holiday entertaining.

Evette Rios

Putting Cooking Odors to the Test
You want the taste of a delicious, flavorful meal to linger in your mouth, but who wants the smell to linger in their home? Whether you're cooking salmon fillets or a curry dish, try using an air purifier, like the Honeywell AirGenius, with an odor absorbing pre-filter to help reduce unwanted odors in a breeze.

Cleaning House
Even if you keep your home extremely neat, dust has a way of collecting on TV sets and other surfaces in your home. Need help fighting dust? Use an air purifier to help capture airborne dust before it settles, reducing the levels that can accumulate. It may even help cut cleaning time before guests arrive!

Smell Me Not
You like to burn candles but don't like the smoke that rises up when you blow out the flame? Use an air purifier to help reduce smoke particles from tobacco smoke, candles, cooking and fireplaces.

Fresh in a Flash
Scrambling to scrub every inch of the house and endless hours in the kitchen may deter your need to entertain. Before your next dinner party, turn on the Honeywell with Febreze Freshness Cool & Refresh Fan and your home will smell fresher in minutes.

Honeywell Febreze Freshness Cool & Refresh Fan

Combining two devices into one, the new Honeywell with Febreze Freshness Cool & Refresh Fan combines convenient odor elimination and cooling power with ease. This new fan provides wide area cooling with its oscillation feature, and also uses Febreze Set&Refresh scent cartridges for whole room odor elimination and freshening.

As I'm always a fan of any product that can perform multiple duties, I couldn't wait to see the Cool & Refresh Fan in person to help prepare my home for the holidays.

Honeywell Febreze Fan

Right away I was happy to see that Honeywell had given this fan a clean, slim, modern design, as I could see it fitting right in with the decor in just about any kitchen, bedroom, dorm room or more.

Plus, the 16.4" height isn't at all overwhelmingly large, so there is no worry about this taking up too much space in large or small rooms.

Honeywell Febreze Freshness Cool & Refresh Fan review

A nearly foolproof fan, Honeywell has made it possible to cool and refresh a space in three easy steps.

First, open the Set&Refresh Scent Cartridge Compartment and and insert the Cartridge right inside.

Next, use the fan's oscillation button and speed control dial to choose the amount and direction of the air flow.

Finally, the Scent Control Dial easily lets you adjust the amount of odor that is released — from strong to none at all. The scent cartridges last up to 30 days and the powerful fan does a great job of spreading the Febreze freshness around!

With its quiet operation and mild and pleasant fragrance (the smell is not at all overpowering, and I appreciate that I can adjust it depending on my mood or any other odors in the house), the Honeywell with Febreze Freshness Cool & Refresh Fan leaves the room cool and fresh.

I don't know about you, but realizing that there is an unpleasant odor in the air when guests are arriving would leave me more frazzled than discovering a plate that wasn't fully clean. At least I could quickly grab that dish off of the table or cover it up with food! Instead, the unobtrusive design and ease of use of this fan eliminates those worries and lets me focus on enjoying my time spent with family and friends.

Retailing for $29.99 (directly from Honeywell or on Amazon.com), you can find out much more about the Cool & Refresh Fan by visiting HoneywellFanSavings.com and connecting with them on Facebook and Twitter.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will head into the holiday season with a fresh-smelling home as well, because...

One lucky person will win a Honeywell with Febreze Freshness Cool & Refresh Fan!

I burn Febreeze candles a lot because I love the way they get rid of odors and put a really nice smell in my home. I would love to have this fan to do the same thing. I also run a ceiling fan constantly to circulate air and this would be great for that. Debra L. Guillen

Tawny said...

I love onions. I heated some in the microwave today and they caught fire. Seriously, fire, smoke, odor, the whole nine yards.
I really need this in the kitchen to take away the odor of the onions as well as these mishaps.
My husband would love this. He doesn't share my enthusiasm for onions, and this would take away the smell, making him happier.

silverneon2000 said...

With the winter weather coming and windows closed you get that stale smell through the house so this would help circulate air and freshness through the house.

Living in Texas, we can never have enough fans in our house. What an added bonus with the Febreze function! Being outnumbered by boys in our house, I am pretty routinely looking to freshen the smell in our house...especially when I have a hyper sense of smell from pregnancy! :)

Kristin B said...

My kitchen needs some air and can use the freshener too also.

Michaela said...

Well, being a college student, the dorms can be unflattering in many ways. One can open up their door to the inside of their room and be overcome by the cloud of stuffiness that their room has become. Also, the many times that ramen and popcorn are made in our room creates an unpleasant smell of burnt food and salty noodles. This fan would be a great addition to our room and let's not forget the fact that dorms don't have air-conditioning come spring and summer. Yikes!

Renee Walters said...

I would like this because I have 3 cats and 2 dogs. Thanks so much for the fantastic giveaway!

Our OLD OLD house has windows that are just as old, but we rent & can't get the rental company to replace them. So we end up either wasting a lot of money running the AC (it goes right out the old windows) or try to set up a bunch of fans to cool off. This would help!
