Keep Your Home Air Clean with Febreze Air Purifier {Giveaway}


I am not a big fan of winter. I actually detest winter and I have never been a fan of snow although I was born in winter. While other kids love being outdoors playing in the snow, making snow angels and having snowball fights, I would much prefer to stay indoors and drink some hot chocolate and wait for it all to melt. Another reason that I'm not such a fan is that in the winter it seems like my household air isn't as fresh as it should be. One reason could most certainly be that the windows are always always closed, usually to keep the cold out but it also keeps the fresh air out too. So I was ecstatic when Febreze contacted me about trying out one of their brand new Febreze Air Purifier, and the great news is that one of you get to try it out too.  We've also included some home cleaning tips by Julie Edelman of the Accidental housewife, to help you on your way to keeping your home air clean.
