FAQs About Using Reed Diffusers
A high-traffic area or a side table near the entrance of your home is the best place to get your fall fragrance to disperse.
The reeds get clogged over time and the oils get gummy. Change the reeds and oil every two to three weeks to keep the scent fresh.
Diffusers don’t wear out, there are no moving parts. They need to be maintained, like washing out the diffuser with soap and water once per month and flipping over the diffuser reeds once per week. This will keep the scent from fading.
