For outdoors we recommend the use of special garden scented candles. You will see that both the containers and the vegetable waxes of the candles are resistant to weather conditions. From Bergamota Aromas we especially recommend you to use the citronella candleperfect for scaring away insects, and the use of the mikado garden air freshenerswhich, having chemical components, increases its dispersion.
In case of spillage on fabric or leather upholstery, it may leave stains on the surface, and on plastics or interior moldings it could wear out the finish as the air freshener contains a solvent that can be corrosive and thus damage the material of the car. Follow the instructions for use correctly: unscrew the wooden cap and remove the plastic cap, screw the cap back on and pour the air freshener for a few seconds, avoiding excess so that it does not drip. This will ensure that the aromatic liquid does not spill. In Bergamota Aromas we recommend checking that the bottle is well screwed and has no cracks that may leak any liquid. It is also advisable to keep it out of reach of children and pets.
You can refill your mikado as many times as you want with the refill of the fragrance you have used. If you want to use another one, we recommend that you wash the bottle thoroughly to remove any residue of the previous fragrance and change the wands.
From Bergamota Aromas we suggest that when you start your air freshener, distribute the fan-shaped rods and rotate them in the first 24 hours. Then you can do it once or twice a week so that the fragrance takes more intensity and is distributed evenly throughout the room. To turn the rods properly, we recommend that you do it with the help of a piece of paper or a small piece of paper to avoid direct contact and thus avoid possible drips. Then remember to wash your hands with plenty of soap and water. In case the bottle or the surface has been stained, remember to clean it with the products you consider. We have an entry in our blog with more details.
We recommend changing the rods when they are very soaked or clogged with dust. If you see that the rods are swollen, it would be a good time to change them since they will no longer absorb the liquid and therefore the fragrance will lose intensity.
In case of ingestion by your pets, they may suffer gastric problems or allergic reactions. If this occurs, consult a veterinarian.
