What's in Febreeze? Cyclodextrin
What does it do? Apparently it traps odors and does not eliminate them, just holds them for a while in a chemical bubble.
What happens if there is a spill in the plant where it's made? They're told to wear protective eyewear and goggles.
Harmful to humans: May cause respiritory irritation, nausea, gastrointestinal irritation, vomiting/diarhhea, drowsiness, fatigue.

What have you found in your house today?

Artificial preservatives do the same thing - encapsulate, not eliminate.

Not sure what's all in the house, some stuff I just haven't found the perfect natural alternative for.

Ugh I have bleach in my house, I had successfully eliminated it for over a year. But when I started the home daycare I have to go by the Army's regulations and they say I HAVE to make a bleach solution every day, and I will get in trouble if they don't see me using it during my inspections.

That doesn't mean I plan to use it when they are not here for inspections though

It's only been the past 6mths where I do NOT use bleach on my toilet. I make natural cleaning products but whenever it came to the toilet, I just couldn't use anything else. Now I have.

BORAX!!! Love it!
