Well, my husband and I prepared to welcome the new year in style. Sort of. Ok, not really in a conventional way. We did use a product that we’ve wanted to try for awhile and just got for Christmas; a travel-sized bottle of Poo-Pourri. (Um, thanks?? 😉 😀 )
Now for those of you who don’t appreciate bathroom humor, (which is a perk of a child-free house. You can openly gloat about a good poot without worrying that your kid will gleefully let one rip and give commentary in the middle of, say, aunt Ida’s funeral mass), Poo-Pourri is a spray that you mist in the toilet bowl before you, ehem, let one go. The sprays are made of essential oils that supposedly trap the smell from the offending thing, and gives the bathroom a pleasant smell of, in our case, “Lemon, Bergamot, and Lemongrass.”
In our first time using this toilet spray, we kinda upped the ante, so to speak. We were coming home from my family Christmas and in our haste to unload everything, we lost the spray tube of Poo-Pourri. When I couldn’t find it the next day, I thought maybe it was still in the car. Well, when my husband returned home, he presented the box it came in…it was soaking wet. See, it had rained all the night before and since it was dark, we couldn’t see that we had accidentally dropped the container of Poo-Pourri on the side of the road. In. The. Rain.
Honestly I thought maybe we had ruined the product, but that made us want to test it out even more. I mean, how great would it be if this thing worked great even after almost being drowned in wintery midwest yuck? Earlier today we had a chance to try it out.
First, prep the bowl by spraying the water 3-5 times. Then do your thing. Now, it’s supposed to, according to the commercial, trap the odor so all you smell is the essential oils you just sprayed into the bowl. Which, it kinda does. But you do get a tiny whiff of something else.
If I had to give this product a rating, I’d give it a 3.5 out of 5. Maybe we need to try another scent. Or maybe I’ll just unscrew the bottle and dump the entire contents in the next time I take a d…..never mind 😀
