“Sparks started flying out and fire, and she says had she been any closer it would’ve burned her as well, and her hand towel hangs right next to it.” They also contacted White and said they will be giving her a full refund on her Wallflower plugins as well as having an electrician check her outlet.

“Bath & Body Works needs to recall these and take them off store shelves before someone gets hurt, or they lose their house, which could’ve easily happened here,” White said. If taken in large doses this is very poisonous and so this plant should not be used medicinally without expert supervision.

The seeds are aphrodisiac, diuretic, expectorant, stomach and tonic. No, you must use the bath & body holders. If this happens, simply return it to any Bath & Body Works Store for a replacement.

But as I will explain in more detail throughout this article, there are too many harmful chemicals in them to risk continuing to use them around pets. One of the primary concerns health experts have about plug -in air fresheners is their wide-spread use of phthalates.

Swallowing the gel-type evaporative beads or reed diffuser solutions can cause serious effects in children. There are concerns about adverse effects on the environment and health with repeated exposures to air fresheners.

Ethyl/isopropyl alcohol can be extremely dangerous if absorbed through the skin, inhaled, or ingested. Fill any room in your home with your favorite Glade fragrances by simply inserting the warmer into an outlet for a long-lasting scent that's adjustable.

I bought some of those Wallflower air fresheners from Bath and Body Works over the weekend. We usually don't buy plug in air fresheners because of hearing about the fire hazards associated with the Glade ones.

I googled Wallflowers fire hazard” this morning just to see if anything came up, and found comments from people that say their house caught on fire from these things. I have Wallflowers, Glade and Febrile things plugged into various rooms.

I can 't imagine going around unplugging each and rep lugging every day. I've had other brands that were warm, but my wallflowers were almost painful to remove from the wall even after a short period of time.

I've used Wallflowers in our bathroom for 4 years, and have never had a problem with excessive heat, etc., and our electric is over 70 years old.... Now I'll go home and check on it! I looked at that this morning and saw the sentence about the wallflowers and thought “hmm...” It never occurred to me that this might be a problem.

I have Wallflowers, Glade and Febrile things plugged into various rooms. I can 't imagine going around unplugging each and rep lugging every day.

I've had other brands that were warm, but my wallflowers were almost painful to remove from the wall even after a short period of time. I checked mine this morning before I left for work.

Makes me wonder if the people who had a problem were leaving mostly empty ones plugged in? We don't use them anymore due to the chemicals it sends into the air.

I never really thought about it until my dog began to chew his feet apart out of nowhere. He was raw and infected, so we took him to the vet, and she immediately asked DH if we had any plug in air fresheners.

She said candles are different in that you get a break from the scent because you don't burn them constantly. Anyways, we unplugged it and 2 weeks later he was healed up and normal! Regarding the fire, my FILM is a firefighter, and he won't let MIL use any plug in scents.

I've used them for something like 6-7 years now (have probably 4-5 plugged in right now, actually, throughout the house) and have never had a problem with them. In fact, there's actually some sort of sensor in them that senses when they might be overheating and automatically “kills” the Wallflower to prevent fires.

The only semi-warm part was the vented area on top. The part that was hot was the base, near where it plugged into the wall.

I'm not sure of the technical name, but it was the part I'd grasp to remove it from the wall. Just checked the one closest to me (it's plugged in near my feet at my desk) and the unit itself is slightly warm and the bulb is cool.

Once we came back last September I plugged one in and noticed mine did get very hot, actually both of them did. When I go to change the bulb I do notice it's warm to the touch, but never too hot that I pull my hand away or anything.

Are they really any different from leaving nightlights plugged in all the time? I make sure all small appliances are unplugged (toaster, coffee maker, etc) when we are done with them.

I had a friend who left the toaster plugged in, and it started a fire. I keep it in the downstairs bathroom where the litter box is.

I used a Glade plug-in several years ago. Claim: Glade PlugIns brand air fresheners have been proved a significant fire hazard.

Electrical Hazard My brother and his wife learned a hard lesson this last week. He said he has seen more home fires started with the plug in type room fresheners than anything else.

The investigator said that the unit was getting too hot, and would dim and go out rather than just blow the light bulb. The investigator said he personally wouldn’t have any type of plug in fragrance device anywhere in his house.

Origins: In early 2002, manufacturer SC Johnson invoked a voluntary recall of its Glade brand ‘Extra Outlet Scented Oil Air Fresheners’ (a plug-in air freshener which included its own outlet so that consumers wouldn’t have to give up an outlet space to use it) because they had found a loose connection inside the extra outlet that might pose a fire hazard. There had been no actual reports of fires property damage associated with the product prior to its recall, however.

We haven’t found any studies or news reports demonstrating that plug-in air fresheners (Glade or other brands) pose a significantly higher fire hazard than other electrical devices. Phillips said the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPC) showed them “scores of reports from consumers, chronicling fire hazards associated with plug-in air fresheners from various manufacturers,” but the CPC also acknowledged “some fires attributed to air fresheners may be caused by faulty electrical wiring.” WAC looked at two instances where air fresheners were suspected in house fires, but the causes of those fires had not been definitively established.

(Both cases involved not Glade brand products, but Wallflower, a plug-in air freshener manufactured by the White Barn Candle Company.) Because SC Johnson is committed to selling safe products, the company thoroughly investigated these rumors.

That fireman indicated that he has no evidence that SC Johnson products had caused any fire. Since consumers are leery of trusting safety information put out by the same companies that sell the products in question, we contacted the Los Angeles Fire Department and spoke to arson investigators there about their experience with fires caused by plug-in air fresheners.

Not only did none of them recall such a case from personal experience, but a search of their records for the last twenty years failed to turn up a single incidence of a major structure fire (i.e., one resulting in damage exceeding $25,000) caused by a plug-in air freshener. So we feel pretty safe in saying that whatever fire danger plug-in air fresheners might pose, it’s not nearly as large as this e-mail would lead consumers to believe.
