I went with my sister to a few nail salons over the years to help her pick out a color and I always had to walk back out within a few minutes. The air quality is horrible in those places.

Febreze gives me an instant headache. I try to avoid perfumes, air fresheners, and other stinky things, but Febreze takes a screaming leap to the top of the list of things to avoid.

I don't see how since it seems to be unsafe for humans, at least this human and many like me who have reported similar symptoms or worse.
The Good and the Bad
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com.
