Scentsy car freshner ruined 2 covers on my dashboard

175 of 246 Scentsy reviews

I received one of these freshners free with a scentsy order, I put it in my car, but did not hang it up as it would distract my view and just laid it on the bit between the seats in front of the gear stick.I went to move it to put something in the compartment and it was stuck to the lid, it had melted the covers!

at first I thought it had glue on the back, but when I tried to take it off, I realised that the lid itself was soft and melting.

I have attached a photograph of the damage, DO NOT USE THESE!!

If you had used as intended this would not have happened. You cannot blame Scentsy for something that wasn't used properly. This car bars are meant to be hung up. I would consider giving this another try if you hang them up.

How on earth can you complain when you weren't using them as per the directions? They are designed to be hung! The damage is your own fault due to misuse of the product.

The packaging states to hang freely because it WILL cause damage for it has oil in it.

I recently put your circle car scents in my new truck. Little did I know how much damage it would cause if it touched a surface. I now have over $800 worth of damage to my truck and after searching on Google, many other people have had this issue. My state, Maryland, it's illegal to have anything hanging from a rear view mirror, so I hung it by my radio and shift knob. I might be dumb for NOT reading the warnings on the back, but reality, how many people do? If these scents cannot touch any other surface without causing damage, how safe are these for a human to breathe or touch??

I hate scentsy. I can't stand how you women are always trying to make a few bucks by obligating your friends to buy *** junk like scenty, 31 bags, pampered chef. All those products are overpriced junk.

the directions say hang. I recommend getting a travel tin if you do not wish to have things hanging on your mirror. I had a walmart air fresher do that to me also because it fell off the mirror.

Lmfao I really enjoy this complaints. You people are all idiots. They're made with oils. It's a car air freshener made to HANG from your rearview mirror; not thrown on your plastic dashboard. Morons. Learn to read labels, people!!!! It's idiots like you that things get recalled because you don't know how to use them.

instead of buying the circles, buy the scent packs and lay them under your seats, if you are concerned about damage, and being able to see. They actually last longer than the scent circles :)

I hung mine from the gear shift and have for years. It also completely melted the plastic. Scentsy's response is there is a warning on the package. I think the warning should say a little more than may damage surfaces. Melting plastic is pretty extensive damage.

It says right on the package that it could discolor or damage something if it sits on it.

If it eats through plastic, what's it doing to your lungs?

Has anyone received compensation from Scentsy for similiar damage? If not has anyone attempted to sue them? I live in Idaho near Scentsy headquarters and am considering filing a lawsuit, please contact me if you have any relevant information on these Scent Paks damaging vehicles at
