"Ridding the home of undesirable odors resulting from everyday occurrences such as cooking, kids' smelly gym bags, dirty laundry and stinky pets can prove a daunting task," says Dr. Ted Myatt, ScD, a microbiologist and expert in indoor air quality with Environmental Health & Engineering and the University of Rhode Island.  "It's an annual tradition across the country to air out stuffy spaces after winter, and the Honeywell with Febreze fan can certainly help with the heavy lifting."

The Honeywell with Febreze Freshness™ Tower Fan is a 32-inch-tall tower unit featuring user-friendly electronic controls for three fan speeds, a discreet and sleek design ideal for any room, and a remote control for convenient operation.  Compatible with any Febreze® Set&Refresh® scent cartridge, each tower fan comes with one Set&Refresh® scent cartridge. A single scent cartridge may last up to four weeks. Adaptable to any home decor, the fan is available in black, white and graphite.

The Honeywell with Febreze Freshness™ Cool & Refresh Fan is currently available nationwide in white (HY-224) and graphite (HY-221), and in black (HY-220, exclusively at Target) for a suggested retail price of $59.99.
