    I have designed a car freshner which would last for 30 days. However I have a dilema whether it would work for 30 days considering the transportation, storage and also keeping in mind that would lie idle in store before it is sold. Will keeping it air tight help and whether It will work for 30 days when unpacked and put to use. And how to decide the best before use date I am confused. Can anybody please guide me on this. My product is powder based

    Yes, air-tightness helps. There’s far less ‘opportunity’ for volatiles of which the scent comprises to evaporate.
    Whether it’ll work for 30 days when unpacked is for you to try, rather for us to guess. Get yourself a cheap heat-sealer and packaging, package a few, leave some in a cupboard and some in the sun for a few days, then open and test for 30 days.
    Do the same for a week, 3 weeks, 7 weeks, whatever you fancy and see whether it lasts 30 days thereafter.
    Easy enough, just put your time into it.

    On an aside, this forum is typically discussing cosmetics so not car air fresheners.
