Your blog is too long, but I think they help.

Depends on the house. Some houses need WAY more than a scented plug-in, believe me. I don't mind them, and in some cases they were appreciated.

And that IS a long post, BTW.

LOL! I agree with Morris and Jon. My eyes are tired from reading so much text.

Anyway - I actually like them. I like stepping into a home in the cold winter and smell cookies or apple pie. In the spring I love the smell of flowers. So I'm for them.

I like real cookies and real apple pie. For open houses, corny and obvious as they are, they really work! My tip for a good smelling house: Not phoney candles and even worse plug ins.....How much nicer is the smell of lemon oil furniture polish....the good stuff....wiped on the edge of the baseboards. Now that is a nice spell! So is the smell of real Christmas trees....or truly fresh air from open windows.

As many as 11% of people are allergic to them.
