      I want to know if anyone has solid information on the health hazards of the plug-in wallflowers Bath and Body Works sells. I have a one year-old boy and I don't want him inhaling harmful chemicals. We have these plugins in every room of the house. I tried searching google but all the articles are a few years old and don't directly reflect these wallflowers. I can assume they're like every other air freshener (which is bad) but I'm looking for hardcore proof to show my wife and get them out of the house.

      im sure they arent going really a huge danger. if you want to swaddle and overprotect, then id say get rid of them. if you understand that its not like you are pouring bleach in his baby bottle you are fine.

      I read part of a book called death by rubber ducky, the book got bad quick but we are exposed to so many chemicals i doubt the air freshener was going to make or break it.

      I heard the only risk with Bath and Body Works was getting picked up by gay men.

      As far as your question, if in doubt, throw it out!
