If you haven’t heard of poo-pourri toilet spray, it’s an air freshener you spray into the toilet before you go poop/No.2 – whatever you prefer to call it. The spray makes a layer on top of the toilet water and the foul smells are trapped, causing the bathroom not to be stinky after you’ve finished your business. Flush and you’re left with a less offensive smelling bathroom.
This past Christmas I gave my sons Poo-pourri spray as a gag gift. Little did I know they’d actually use it & like it! They were trying to be gentlemen when their girlfriends came over and used the spray instead of having a stinky bathroom. It’s funny the things they do to impress girls. Buying the poo-pourri in stores is costly so I found this diy spray. Now I’ve just got to get my boys to make this themselves.
DIY copycat “poo”pourri
- 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol or witch hazel
- 30 drops essential oil – (I use spearmint & eucalyptus but you can use any combination you like)
- distilled water to fill spray bottle
Put rubbing alcohol & essential oil in small spray bottle. Fill with water. Shake.
Spray in toilet before you go.
If poo-pourri isn’t something you’re interested in, here’s a nice smelling room deodorizer. My husband likes this deodorizer because it’s not flowery smelling like most deodorizers.
- 1 cup distilled water
- 6 drops bergamot essential oil
- 1 drop eucalyptus essential oil
- 2 drops lemon essential oil
Pour distilled water into spray bottle. Add all essential oil drops and shake very well to combine.
Spray in bathroom to deodorize.
