There’s a running joke at home about toilet smells and their ability to spread throughout the house like a spilled glass of grape juice will spread across the couch. Time and again, odors from the porcelain throne have been a scourge upon my kingdom. So when I pulled a bottle of Poo-Pourri out of my stocking this last Christmas it was the answer we were looking for. My wife thought it was funny when she bought it as a stocking stuffer, but little did she know how well this stuff would keep the bathroom fresh.
If you’re not familiar with Poo-Pourri it’s this stuff (that’s a totally legit scientific term by the way) that you spray on the surface of the water in your toilet before you drop a duece. This spray spreads out across the surface of the water and captures all the stink, preventing it from fouling up the bathroom and the rest of the house. Science yo!
I have to admit I was skeptical at first, but Poo-Pourri delivers on its promises. Suddenly, instead of getting a whiff of the wrong end of yesterday’s turkey burger, the only evidence of foulness left behind is the delightful scent of citrus. It’s like a breath of fresh air that has swept from that cold porcelain throne and left the kingdom smelling like an orange grove.
The kids, especially my 10-year-old, thought it was hilarious (but I know he gets a kick out of using it!).
There really isn’t much else to say about Poo-Pourri. It’s a simple product that works, and if you’ve got a houseful of kids and the houseful of crap (literally) that goes along with it, you might want to do yourself a favor and pick up a bottle for each bathroom. I’m sure your nose will thank me. Don’t believe me? Ask around, you might be surprised who you know has it at their house.
Hey, that video was fun, how about another one?
