Go Ahead, Get Your Giggles Out: Poo-Pourri
Taro Gomi said, everyone poops. And, unfortunately, everybody, even the most delicate flowers among us, experience the unpleasant odor that is associated with poo.
Many remedies have been tried in countless office restrooms and house bathrooms, but to little avail. Sure, at home you can burn a match to kill the smell afterward, but you still have to suffer during. And forget about matches or candles in an office restroom. All of us, at some point in time, have held our noses and breathed through our mouths to avoid sniffing in the dreaded air freshener and poo smell combination. *horf* I gag even just thinking about it. But, this is no mere product that attempts to mask the odor of poo with cloying perfume. No. It stops the odor at the source.
Poo-Pourri Original Scent is really like no other deodorizing product I've used. It kills the odor of your poo by trapping it in with a barrier of the essential and carrier oils. In other words, the odor doesn't leave the bowl in the first place. The Original Scent is a pleasantly bright citrusy secret, driven by the essential oils that are used in the formula. It smells nice, but won't gag you with overpowering florals like an aerosol freshener does. To use, just lift the lid of the toilet and spray the liquid on the surface of the water. Between four and six sprays will be sufficient, but you can always use more if you want. Then, settle yourself upon the seat and poo. It's a little unbelievable, but the smell of your poo really doesn't get past the barrier of oil on the surface of the water. Of course, if you're a little gassy that's a whole different story. Poo-Pourri is great, but it can't help that. Sorry, guys and gals.
If citrus scents aren't your favorite, Poo-Pourri makes a variety of scents. Daisy Doo and HeavenSCENT are marketed for Women, each with a different combination of floral scents. For the men, or ladies who prefer a manly scent, Royal Flush combines eucalyptus and spearmint and Heavy Doody features neroli and sandalwood. There is a scent for every preference.
My judgement on this product is a 7/8 Tentacles, only because it is a little on the pricey side. A small 2-ounce bottle of any scent retails on the official site for about $10, a medium 4-ounce bottle goes for about $15, and the Original Scent is the only one that is available in a large 8-ounce size which sells for $25. So, for something that is just going to keep your poo from creating a napalm of smell, it is a bit expensive. But, if you want something that is going to work well every time, then this is your product.
Rating: 7/8 tentacles
