I used to buy this product all the time, and was loving the vanilla smell— until I got sick. Now if I walk into a room with any Glade products, I get a headache of immense proportions. Puts me in bed for days. I can’t believe this product has not been tested for safety around babies, the elderly or immune compromised. There’s some nasty chemicals in it. That’s for sure.
These plugins should be taken off the market. They are very dangerous. I had one plugged into an outlet. It was installed in the correct position with the stem up. It leaked and dripped down the wall eating right through the paint. I even purchased another plug in thinking the one I had was defective. Nope, same thing happened after a few days. It dripped down the wall again. I’m just glad it didn’t cause a fire or electrical short because the outlet was wet with oil also. Do not buy this product!
Approximately later December 2018 I bought a Glade plug in and lavender as the smell. I never really noticed anything at first... We would unplug and then plug in randomly. Then one day I purchased a Christmas Pine scent - I bought it January 25th - plugged it in that evening in the kitchen - it was too strong so I took and used in my room. Then suddenly my throat started getting sore. Within 24 hours I had 5 birds die from it. After doing research I found out just how dangerous they are. These should not be allowed to be sold!!! If they are that bad for birds and animals why are they allowed to be sold!!! Word of caution - avoid these at all cost!!!
I had 3 plugins. Each plugin has melted my outlets. All were being used correctly. We even changed 1 of the plugs that was more eye level. With in 2 weeks it also was melted. This is a dangerous product.
I purchased a pack of the Cozy Autumn Cuddle and when first put in and plugged in the aroma was fantastic and widespread. So I went out and bought more. A lot more. Now the new ones I bought aren't even smelling when put in and the one that was has long lost its scent and the thing is half full? I started wondering if I had an electrical issue but did not. So these things - about 4 are just sitting on some walls doing nothing. What's up with these things? What a waste of money. They ain't cheap! There must be something better than these out there?

Okay, wow. First of all, a bunch of the reviews here, hilarious. They were plugging their warmer in upside down. What do you think would happen? It's a wick... it's gonna leak oil if you have it upside down. Maybe read the directions/have some common sense next time. As for my experience: Some of the scents I found decently pleasant. Can be strong in non ventilated areas, but you can adjust the knob (small dots mean less fragrance, big dots means more fragrance), or just, you know, run a fan and open a window or two. My only issues involve questions about the chemical makeup of the "essential oils" and the fact that my warmer doesn't really warm the oil and disperse it very well after 3 months of use. That and the potential electrical/melting warming problems. Seems just as dangerous as a candle. Cost effectiveness is on par with other scented warmer oils. My recommendation would be a nonelectric - passive scent thing.
I had 3 warmers plugged in several rooms in my house. Every warmer started leaking oil and totally stripped the finish of the baseboards and floor. A small amount dripped onto my end table and within minutes totally dissolved the finish. This is a very poorly designed product and should come with a warning about how caustic the oil is if it comes in contact with wood, vinyl, painted surfaces. I would never recommend this product to anyone.
I have about 6, and the reason I have 6 is because I have to keep buying them in order to smell the fragrance. They burn up, turn a dirty gross looking orange yellow, and very hard to clean off. I refill them constantly but they don't work. I can never smell the scent anymore. And I love the scent, sheer vanilla, but from now on I'm forced to just use the candles or find another company that has reliable plugin warmers that I don't have to replace after 1 or 2 uses. So disappointing.
I had this plugged into a power strip. The glade scented oil plug-in was upright but still managed to meet out. It completely ate the plastic off the power strip and deformed it and freaked out onto the blinds and the window seal and ruined the paint. These plug-ins are dangerous! I sat the plug-in on top of a metal safe while I cleaned up the rest and it completely ate the finish off of it as well.
This product should come with warnings for those with allergies, respiratory problems, eye sensitivities, cautions about skin contact, surface contact with wood, plastic, etc., and residual effects when exposed to heat.
The oil from the Glade Plug In dripped on my dining room Dura ceramic tile floor, it bubbled up & ate a hole in my floor about the size of a nickel. It was not tipped while in use, I'm thinking it's a defective holder, because I moved it to countertop with a plate under it, for hours to test it and it still leaked. The label contains no warning about the toxic chemicals in the products could damage your furniture and floors. I will have to replace my 12 x 12 square of flooring!
I woke up smelling burning plastic so I went to kitchen and seen my wall where the Glade PlugIn was and it was burning and thank goodness I was home when this happened, I will never use these ever again.
I have noticed that there is less and less product in the freshener bottle and only lasts a week or 10 days. Very cost prohibitive. Also noticed that many of the one star rated reviews show photos of the freshener and it is plugged into the outlet upside down! No wonder they have problems with leaking on furniture and floors. I have never had a problem, and have used them since they came out.
The oil from the Glade refills cap contained residue and dripped on my dresser and dining room table, it bubbled up and ruined both pieces of my furniture. The label contains no warning about the toxic chemicals in the products could damage your furniture and floors.
For those people who have complained about the oil leaking ---- THE STEM OF THE BOTTLE IS SUPPOSED TO POINT UP WHEN PLUGGED IN!!! Google the proper usage of one and you will be shown pictures of this! No ** wonder it leaked and ruined your floor and furniture. Now, that being said, if you plug one in properly, you will need scads of these things as the oil rarely gets hot enough in mine to even smell and I have 2 plugged in for 100 sq. ft. I won't be buying these again for that reason.
Bought a Glade oil scent for my car yesterday. I attached to the vent... and it burst. Ruin my interior next to radio. I just got this car 6 months ago... now ruined... I want to be given reimbursement for damage to replace the interior of my car where my car radio vent is...
Just wish I could find more of them at stores. I love using the wax cubes passion vanilla but I can't find them at Walmart or Dollar General and when I can find them I only find one card with 6 cubes in it. I would really love it if Glade would make a tub of the wax melt cubes with a handle on it. Just think about it I would be so happy.
I bought 3 Glade plugins. I had one in my hallway, bedroom and bathroom. I don't know why but there is a hole in the bottom and it leaked out everywhere! It caused my vinyl floor to bubble and blister, the baseboard is warped now. The one in the bathroom leaked all over my contact boxes. I'm glad I saw it when I did because it probably would have ate through the boxes. I'm very disappointed in this product. They need to fix it and the price is not cheap.
I bought a couple of Glade PlugIns for my new apartment a couple weeks ago. I had one plugged into an outlet in the bathroom which was fine for a couple weeks. One day I could smell it really strong and went into the bathroom to discover it had leaked and had eaten through the paint and varnish on my counter top. Fortunately my insurance will cover it but it will cost me as I have a deductible. I will never use a Glade PlugIn again as I simply cannot afford to.
I am extremely disappointed in the Glade plug in. I unplugged it and placed in on my dining room table and it spilled. I immediately wiped it off the table. The small amount that spilled ate through the coating and ruining the table top. What in the world is in your plug in that is strong enough to strip a surface?
I bought the scented warmer over 3 wks ago and yesterday I smelt something burning. Checked my stove and it was off. Then I realized the burning smell was coming from the warmer so I unplugged it and noticed that the oil had turn orange/brown when it was originally yellow. Good thing I found the culprit before going to sleep. Bad thing is the outlet is ruin.
I bought 4 of them and plugged them in at various places in my home. All 4 leaked and yes I bought the Glade Oil, not the cheap brand that Walmart sells. The paint on my walls and baseboards have come off due to the leaks. I have now unplugged all. I am very disappointed in this product. I spent at least 20 dollars or more to give my home a nice smell. Never ever again. Just paid last year over $3,000 to have my downstairs painted and now some of the areas are ruined.
The plugin was way too strong for my son's room, so I unplugged it and Sat it upright on the top of his chest of drawers. Later that evening I saw a white film and the chemicals had completely eaten through the top of his dresser and went straight through to the wood. It is ruined. There is no warning on the product and I had no reason to think this could happen. I am assuming we will have to engage in litigation.
First I'd like to say that I've been using this product for a number of years without incident. Around 4 AM on November 25, 2016 I was awaken by the faint smell of burning plastic. I checked the house and didn't find anything so I went back to bed. The next night/morning around the same time I was awaken again by the faint smell of burning plastic. Again I searched the house and couldn't find anything. On November 28, 2016 after arriving home from work, the same scent of burning plastic was noticeable. As I walked in the hallway towards the bedroom I just happen to glance down and noticed the outlet. As I looked closer I noticed that there was a scorch mark on the wall at the outlet and that it had begun to melt. I immediately unplugged it, and it felt warm and concluded that this was the cause of the smell that I had awakened me those two nights/mornings.
Now this may just be a fluke because I have others installed and there hasn't been any issues, and I know that there are erroneous reports circulating the net but this incident actually happened. I have attached two photos for you to review. BTW, prior to this happening I used this outlet when I vacuumed my home and it worked without any problems.
Just an FYI, my cat is very allergic to the Glade PlugIns Oil Warmers. He had a chronic upper respiratory Infection, that wasn't clearing up with repeated rounds of antibiotics. Finally, after some experimenting, I unplugged my warmers (3) and within days he was better. No more sneezing, wheezing, congestion, and watery eyes. Then to test the theory even further, a few days later, I plugged them all back in and he started sneezing again within the hour, and was full-blown, congested with watery eyes by the end of the day. Unplugged them all again and he was totally clear again within 48 hours.
My other cat was fine and has no reaction to the plugins. After spending hundreds at the vet with no improvement, this turned out to be the problem. So if anyone has a sick cat (or dog), try unplugging your oil warmers first before spending a ton at the vet. I wish I did. My only complaint about the warmers (the allergic cat is certainly not the company's fault) is that the plugin itself seems to stop working after about 4 plugin refills are put in. I wish they lasted a little longer.
Glade Scented car freshener damage the plastic around my radio. I hanged the freshener around the radio knob and touching the plastic, it damaged the base. The dealership can replace the base, however, for $500. I need to contact Glade to pay for the repair. I'm taking this to small claims court, if I have to.
I have used these plugins for years and just recently had an issue with one of my outlets (which was specifically used for the plugin). It kept tripping my breaker. Couldn't figure why until I unplugged the freshener and light came on... pulled plug out and wires were burnt and to replace wiring and new outlet. Please beware of these. I sure would have never thought of this happening.
We purchased the Linen Scent Glade PlugIns. Soon after use, my baby started getting hives. I also started getting a headache and my skin was itchy. These things are full of chemicals and completely unsafe to be breathing. I have thrown them in the trash but now this stuff is all in my air vents and has covered every surface, so when the baby crawls around or touches anything she gets hives. I am very disappointed the product and worried about the baby.
We now have 2 spots on our newly installed vinyl flooring that have bubbled and blistered directly under Glade plugins that have leaked onto the floor.
Glade lavender and vanilla plug in - Love the scent but even on the low setting, it does not last as long as other brands. Too expensive to use. Not worth the cost. Air wick last much longer.
