    It'd have to be literally soaked in it, but the principle is the same...

    That's why it would have to be soaked. And I don't mean "soaked." You would have to take the filter and leave it sitting in a puddle of Febreeze for an hour or so. How much do those things cost? I've got a bottle of Febreeze, I may try it with a spare one

    If you spray Lysol in there it will kill the bacteria throughout your vent system and it will keep the bad smells. The bacteria in there is what causes the smells.

    Febreeze is a long chain bonding agent. Basically it bonds to the smell and covers it up. It's permanent and don't go away. The scent that's in the mixture does go away after time though. It should be used as a last resort.
