How does the Febreze Car Vent Clip work?
The product contains scented oil. When the clip on the back of the product is lifted and snapped into place it makes small holes in the foil covering the scented oil. The scented oil then soaks into a porous material. The air from the car vent spreads the fragrance throughout the car. At the top of the clip there is an adjuster which lets you control the strength of fragrance.
When the dial is on ‘LOW’, the scent should last up to 30 days. When the dial is on ‘HIGH’, the scent may also last up to 30 days depending on the speed and temperature of the vent. When you can't smell the scent anymore, it's time to replace the clip.
Will the scented oil in my Febreze car clip freeze in temperatures below freezing point?
No, the scented oil will not freeze. The Car Vent Clips are tested for use under many conditions. When used properly, the product will not freeze or break open during winter use. For best performance, we recommend storing the unused product at room temperature until you are ready to use it.
Does the Car Air Freshener fit all car vents and which vent should I use?
The product has been tested on the vents of most common makes and models of car, but it may not fit all vents due to the thickness of the slats or the type of vent. You can place the product on any of the car’s vents. For the most benefit you should use a vent that is closest to you and make sure air is being circulated.
Can I use the Car Clips in my home?
The Febreze Car Clips are designed to be used on car vents. It has not been tested for use in the home.
Does the Febreze Car Vent Clip work in any direction?
The product is designed to fit both vertical and horizontal slats, with the fragrance-strength adjuster on the product facing upright or sideways. We recommend that, if possible, you put the product in the upright position so you can control the strength of the scent more easily.
