P is for Poo-Pourri
Far be it from me to ever talk about bodily functions, but I've been dying to tell you about Poo-Pourri for ages.
I bought some last summer, with the specific intention of trying it out and blogging about it. (You can see how well blogging-in-advance works for me, since it's now April.) I had to try it because the company had the funniest marketing campaign video I'd ever seen.
I ordered the large bottle from Amazon.ca – at $20.99 plus tax and delivery, it was probably the most expensive bathroom spray I'd ever purchased, but considering I've had it for nearly a year, it's a pretty good buy. What's more, it WORKS.
You spray some in the toilet before you have a poo. The essential oils form a pleasant herbal barrier on the top of the water. When your poop drops below the surface, the oils reseal the barrier and, voila, no smell! This seriously works – take it from someone with Crohn's Disease who is married to someone with Irritable Bowel Syndrome! We've really given it a work-out!
I wish I had this when I was still working. Back then I was so embarrassed about stinking up the washroom, that I'd hold it all day. Had I been able to leave a pleasant herbal scent rather than the stench of 1,000-cows, I would have had far less stomach cramping and gnashing of teeth.
Poo-Pourri - you'll never be stinky again!
