Best Answer

Occasional exposure to air fresheners isn't likely to cause problems, as long as the products are used as directed. However, the chemicals in air fresheners may irritate your eyes, skin and throat. In addition, long-term use of air fresheners may contribute to indoor pollution - which can sometimes trigger Asthma and other lung problems.
