Hi, recently I booked an Airbnb stay in a house near a conference I was attending and was dismayed to find that the room I had paid in advance for was filled with electronically-delivered, artificial, chemical air fragrances made by Febreze. It took over a day to find the source of these obnoxious smelling chemicals coming from units plugged into the AC wall sockets and prevented me from sleeping for one whole night. Furthermore, the host had requested that all windows be shut and locked overnight because of wildlife concerns! It was excruciating and I was exhausted the next day. I could barely breathe all night! And even once I got home, all my clothes smelled of these noxious, toxic chemicals. These devices aren't "air fresheners", they're an assault on our sense of smell. Research shows that these Febreze products and similar ones are FULL of neurotoxic chemicals that can potentially injure our immune and nervous systems. According the Environmental Working Group these contaminants are linked to cancer, can be toxic to the human reproductive system and even cause allergies.

I believe that Airbnb should provide a "Clean Air Guarantee", that hosts can optionally check off or not, so that guests will know ahead of time if their hosts put these artificial chemicals in the air or not. This way, Airbnb guests can avoid the trauma I experienced of feeling trapped in a chemically-filled room overnight. 

As a many year, repeat Airbnb user, I believe this policy will benefit guests, hosts, and Airbnb alike so that this situation does not arise again in the future. Hosts could simply check-off that they don't use electric, artificial scent devices at their residence and guests could see this ahead of time and have the confidence to know their stay will be a chemically safe one. Join me and let's make the Airbnb experience better for everyone!
