Renuzit Changes Air Freshener Design, Size, Smelly Staying Power

“As in all redesigns, you get less,” observes reader Andrew when talking about the changes in Renuzit gel air fresheners. The product is now half an ounce smaller, and looks different. Like a Glade clone, he observes, because he obviously pays a lot more attention to air fresheners than we do.


Most important is that decrease in size, though. Andrew says that this model is harder to open and then twist to expose the gel: maybe if it’s harder to open, the fragrance lasts longer, which explains why there is less gel.

Or it’s the Grocery Shrink Ray. One of those things.
