Hi there! I was wondering what kind of air freshener are allowed in bathrooms? Our bathroom are located in the production area (in a separate area of course). Thanks!

I would say you would get more mileage out of an exhaust fan. 

 

Bathroom fresheners (IMO) just add scents that people may or may not even like. Many people are also developing sensitivities to scented products, also.

Depending on your process, product, and proximity to open product areas, this could be seen as potential chemical contamination by an auditor.  Call me crazy, but I've seen them pick at things like this, and in some instances I totally get it.  Like setanta said above, you're better off sticking with increasing air flow.

Most times I see the type that are high wall mounted and mist from an automatic timer everyone 10-30 minutes.

 

Get the type that can be locked.

 

I also agree that an exhaust fan is a better solution.

If your room smells unpleasant and you are looking for ways to improve the smell in your room, you need the best air freshener. Believe me, an air freshener creates a pleasant atmosphere and makes people in the room feel comfortable. The plug-in air purifier for phoenix bathrooms can significantly reduce the number of bacteria in the air and reduce odor. The compact model takes up space on my dressing table. The freshener must be equipped with a UV-C lamp, which can kill airborne viruses.

From a GMP perspective, I'm sure regulations would require that an air freshener does not pose a risk in contaminating the product after your staff comes in contact with it. A GMP auditor may interpret them similar to how they'd view perfume products; staff should not be wearing perfume which could impart a scent onto the product. So if you start using a new air freshener and suddenly everyone in the plant starts smelling like it long after they've used the bathroom, then you probably need to look into that. Otherwise, the automatic release types mentioned in post#4 work very well. Allowing staff to apply air freshener on their own can get out of hand. 

 

I've never been asked for an air freshener SDS, but I do keep it on file.
