For most people, cleaning is probably the last thing they want to add to their to-do list. But the addition of fragrances to most cleaning agents these days has perhaps motivated them to free their homes from dust, clutter, and germs, preventing significant property damage and minimizing health hazards.
Like diffusers, air fresheners, and candles that can transform your abode with lingering scents, cleaning agents ingredients include fragrances that make them fragrant and attractive. Unlike candles, wax melts do not evaporate with use. Instead, their fragrance will die out, which lets you know that it’s time to replace them. Fragrance companies have developed ways to incorporate different scents into these products.
As technology progresses, manufacturers offer modernized cleaning solutions and sophisticated fragrances. Although these aromas can’t leave a long-lasting impression, they can make cleaning more appealing and fun, as well as add a perceived benefit to household cleaning products.
How Fragrances are Added to Cleaning Products
Adding fragrances into cleaning products is often done using two different methods. First is the use of synthetic fragrances, usually involving the application of strong scents to intentionally give an appealing smell to a product. The second method is by using masking fragrances to conceal the unpleasant aroma of other ingredients (e.g. rotten eggs).
If you come across cleaning products labelled as “fragrance-free”, these merchandise contain low concentrations of essential oils to conceal the pungent odor of certain chemical ingredients.
