Frequently Asked Questions
1. What does "Fúchila" mean!?
Fü•chee•lä (noun) : phrase used when something is smelly or off-putting usually olfactory-related.
"Fúchila," exclaimed Orlando, " your car smells like nalgas?"
2. Que funny! Why the name "Fúchila"?
I would say I yelled it out one day and realized how funny and unique the word was to our cultura. Because of my weird sense of humor, I am always coming up with funny names for fake products. Most ideas I just laugh away, but a freshener named Fúchila was too good to pass up. I couldn’t say it without cracking a smile.
3. How long before I get my order in hand?
This ain't Amazon. On average, we take about 2-3 days to package your order and send it to the post office. Sometimes the Post Office takes 1-2 days to process it and another 2-4 days to ship it out to you depending on distance. This means it can take from 5-9 days to have your order in hand. We are small business with a grand total of two people doing everything.
4. Where are you based?
San Jose, CA. The heart of Silicon Valley. The South Bay of Califas.
5. Where can I buy Fúchila Fresheners?
The easiest way is here on our site! We also have a growing number of shops who carry our products. Locations. We are always looking to grow the wholesale side of our business. If you are interested in carrying our product in your store please fill out this wholesale form.
6. Where can we find you on social media?
7. What do they smell like?
Read the description on each design page. Each freshener has a different scent. I try to pair the design with the scent that fits the icon's history, character, or color the best. We are not developing customs scents at this time, but are working with what we got. Buy Fúchila.
8. My nose is pretty sensitive, are your scents really strong. Are they all-natural?
Our current scents are not all-natural and are quite strong. Great for odors, but not necessarily great for sensitive noses. Try opening a new package outside of the car a couple hours before your next drive. You can also try putting a new freshener in the glove compartment or under the seat for a day or two before placing it proudly on your rear view mirror. Let us know what works for you.
9. What are your fresheners made out of? What is the environmental impact?
We proudly manufacture our air fresheners in the USA. Our manufacturer uses recycled paper as well as eco-friendly inks that contain no metals. Please do your part by recycling the card, shipping envelope, and box as well. You can also repurpose our Fúchila Fresheners as art pieces, decorations, ornaments, drink coasters etc. Send us a picture if you make something cool. We would love to see it!
